On a personal note...

Well my husband and I took a wonderful 5 day trip to San Antonio, TX. We went with 5 other couples and it was a blast. I was really worried about going with my hyperemesis but I did pretty good. I even kept breakfast down everyday but one! Yeah.

Unfortunately, this past Wednesday I ended up in the ER. I went for a ear infection and some spotting I was concerned about, only to end up being admitted and having my appendix removed!!!! The surgery and recover has been pretty rough since it's been complicated by my hyperemesis, but all in all I consider myself lucky that the appendicitis was caught so early and removed before infection could set in. The funny thing is I would have never went to the ER for the abdominal pain, it wasn't that severe and I figured it was just from the GI issues created by the hyperemesis. So strangely in this case the spotting was a blessing in disguise.
