    Well we had the twins Tuesday morning and they had to go to the ICU. They are doing great now and are off their oxygen and everything. BUT, 2 days ago I woke up in my wifes room at the hospital with a very bad pain in my ab. I thought it was just the way I slept so I just dealt with it. Well 2 days later with no relief I walked to the ER and found out that my appendix had burst and they had to do surgery this morning. This is not what I had in mind, laying here in bed with 3 holes in my belly.:(

    Hope you heal quickly. Had mine out in December 2006 (it had burst too--horrible pain!). In 2-3 weeks, you should be totally back to normal. The worst post-op pain I had was when I laughed, so you may want to stay off of TW's "Funny Pics" and "Funny Videos" threads!

    Glad to hear the twins are doing great!

    Wow, Dalton - way to mix your pain vs. pleasure. A burst appendix is no minor condition. Heal up.

    Gratz on the twins - very cool! How's the wife?

    Just think, when is the next time you and your wife will get cut on so close together. If she has better pain meds, you can sneak them.

    Take it easy, I hated getting surgery done for mine, the person who had performed the surgery told me mine was on the verge of bursting :eek:

    Yeah it sucked, I was wayyy young too, I'm 18 now and I had it done in 8th grade, so I was 13/14 at the time. They gave me a morphine pump for the day after surgery, I didn't really need it, but the nurse that kept coming in to check on me got annoying so I'd take a pump of morphine to go back to sleep :D.

    You'd be amazed at how many things you use your abdominals for, that is what was the sorest for me after surgery. I'd say as soon as you can eat, eat EASY to digest food, like soups and yogurts. It's incredibly hard to do a #2 when you're abdominals are practically non-functioning. Also getting out of bed was a pain...I hated being helped out all the time, I like being independent but yeah once you recover you'll be back to normal again. I highly recommend eating plenty of oranges (or other fruits high in vitamin c), not only do they make you use the restroom easier, they also are high in vitamin c which greatly helps in healing wounds/cuts. I healed in about 2-3 weeks, but for the remainder of the month I laid off doing any extraneous work.

    Congrats on the new kiddos too :). I wish yall the best!

    Congrats on the healthy twins ! Thus starts the cycle where for the rest of your life you will slowly age, weaken and break down as your children continue to grow stronger, faster and smarter than you !! Welcome to parenting. haha. God bless, and prayers for your healing and the health of your family

    Wow, Thanks everybody for all the well wishes. Funny thing is I don't even remember making this thread. I just happen to be going through the threads I have made and saw this one and thought what the hell is that. So I am just now reading all the well wishes, Thanks again and I am feeling great and the twins are doing great as well. What does it mean when you are starting threads on TW and can't even remember doing it???? CRAZY!!!!!! :eek:
