So, Lord, An Appendix is for ... What?

Just when my Principal thought it was safe to put me back in a classroom: Appendicitis!

Perhaps the only reason for creating humans with an appendix is to provide yet another opportunity for happy Catholics to offer it up.

Great to have you back with your fingers gracing the key board.

Tell us ones who have not gone through this what happened and what is the recovery time.

Lady Aramis said that she has heard that they now can suck it out without cutting you open. Is that true? Was the vacuum one like this?

Tim J. said...

Happy to hear it was nothing too serious (I mean, nothing chronic) and glad to see you back so quickly.

Athos said...

No, Aramis. Dr. Mason yanked it at 12:30 am - he said he and his happy surgical crew just got back from O'Sullivan's for a 11pm "liquid lunch break" - and did it the old fashioned way, like this (viewer discretion advised).

David Nybakke said...

Oh yuck Athos. Well knowing this I would say that it proves the super-mass'keteer that you are for anyone like me, a wimp, would surely require a couple days of recovery time in the hospital.

Dear Athos

Glad you are back safe and sound.
I was afraid that it had something to do with cancer.
My experience with apendicitis was 57 years ago. I was 3 years old. I suffered for sure, but my parents suffered much more. So an apendix is for... a lot of things...
God bless you
