It's 1:48 AM and I am still too wound up to go to bed, though heaven knows that's where I need to be. I've just got home from the hospital. After 6 days of abdominal pain and cramping Colin decided to let me take him to the doctors. Turns out his appendix is very inflamed (and pussy) and had to be removed. Because it was so inflamed they had to use an incision instead of just a scope. Now I don't know how long he will be out of commission.
Thank God, Colin came through the surgery well and the nurse said everything was good. I got to see Colin for a few minutes before being sent home to bed. Colin was falling asleep too. He needs it, he hasn't slept well for the last few days. The staff at Renfrew hospital are the best. We are about half way between Renfrew and Pembroke but we always drive to Renfrew for medical help. Even though the waiting room was full of people we were taken right in. I guess 'appendix' is one of those magic words to get service :)
Those stubborn farmers, they won't admit when the feel bad. There's too much to do. Next time I'm putting my foot down and making him (somehow) get help sooner.
