Dean developed acute onset of vomiting and abdominal pain which localized to the right lower quadrant on Wed night. A couple of homeopathic remedies helped through the night, but by morning it was apparent that he needed to be seen by a doctor.
He had an emergency appendectomy on Thursday night after spending the entire day in the ER being worked up.
The surgery was straight forward. No rupture, no complications - nice clean excision. He is recovering nicely and taking only Ibuprofen for pain.
He got to come home about 15 hours post-op!
Discharge to home!
He is chomping to get back to work on the house, but we will rein him in for now.
