Emergency Appendectomy

So I stayed home from work Friday cause I had, what I thought were really bad gas cramps. I tried taking Beano to no avail. Then I thought about appendicitis (sp?), and search the WWW. There I found my EXACT symptoms and called my Mom to take me to the hospital. I would have called the wife but she doesn't get paid, since her work doesn't offer sick time . Anyway, I tell the doc what I THINK I have, and he does some investigating around my gut and sends me in for a CT scan. I was right , and had it removed.

Pretty easy recovery, I got to have French toast for breakfast and a Bison Burger for lunch the next day, and then went to my Dad's for T-bones last night (I had the surgery on Saturday night at 9pm). Anyway fellas, if you're feeling gas cramps and don't feel relief when you fart, and all the pain is in your lower right abdomen, you should get it checked out. The Appendex is a useless organ, but can kill you if it bursts

FYI, the contrast they give you before a CT scan, is like a laxative
