My Darling Kate woke on Saturday morning with stomach pains which had turned excruciating by late morning. Kate's BF took her to the Medical Centre where the Dr confirmed Appendicitis and gave her a letter to take to the emergency at the local hospital, they did some blood tests and checked her out and finally sent the surgeon down to talk with her and decided at 2.30pm it was appendidcitis and they would have to be removed. HOWEVER they had to do emergency c-sections and meanwhile Kate was waiting, waiting and having morphine and other pain killers for the pain. It was a VERY long and drawn out day and FINALLY at 8.50pm on Saturday night they took her in for surgery which lasted for 2 hours. I still can't believe they released her from hospital a little more than 12 hours after surgery, she was home at 1pm yesterday, I think that's so disgraceful, in my opinion they should have kept her in till at least today. I know with key hole surgery these days it's not as invasive but I know someone else having had the same operation was in hospital for 4 days and given 3 weeks off work. Kate came through the surgery good and is now recovering at home, it was a stressful and tiring weekend and I am so glad it's all over now. This is a photo of Kate and I on Mother's Day, I didn't want to post a photo of her not looking so good in hospital.

"I love you to the moon and back sweetheart", Hugs and Kisses. Mum

How was your weekend, I hope it was less stressful than mine.



  1. Oh Kaylee, your darling has suffered terribly! Keyhole or not, it's still surgery, & I agree it's terrible she only had such a short stay in hospital. Is she with you now? She must be feeling so wrung out by it all, my love to her for a speedy & thorough recovery. I'm sorry you had to see your darling girl go through that... x

  2. Wishing your daughter well.

  3. Oh you poor things.. I'm so glad everything, finally, turned out alright and Kate is on the mend. How awful and stressful for you both to go through. It's heartbreaking to see your child go through something like this. All the best to you both xx

  4. Oh poor is very painful and horrible. Poor Mum having to stand by and not be able to do anything. Glad Kate is on the mend. Hugs to you both. xoxo
