My oldest daughter graduated from high school on Wednesday! It was great except for one thing…she had this funny little pain in her side. I told her she was nervous and to relax. Graduation was beautiful and painful all at the same time. I no longer have a daughter in high school???? How the hell did that happen? After the graduation ceremony she came home for a couple of pictures and to change into some comfortable clothes for “Project Graduation”. Our town many years ago decided to adopt this wonderful program to prevent kids from going out on grad. night drinking and partying. The high school rents out an entire funplex with laser tag, swimming, bumper cars, race cars, and a million other cool things. Graduating seniors are there from 9:00 pm until 7:00 am, it is exhausting good clean fun...a drug and alcohol free environment is strictly enforced. She had a BLAST except for one thing she still had this funny little pain in her side that was not so funny anymore.
She actually took herself to the doctor…who sent her directly to the hospital. She needed her appendix out. :o( So most of yesterday was spent in the emergency room before heading into surgery at 11:00 pm. I stayed with her and she was sent home this afternoon. I am tireeeeeed…it was very kind of them to find me a recliner’ish chair but sleep was scarce. On the way home we stopped at the pharmacy to fill her prescription for Percoset. The sweet child actually told her doctor she didn’t think she could take any painkillers home because her brother had a problem with drugs. I made sure we got a script before we left the hospital.
I am going to sleep with her pills in my purse under my pillow. I am very proud of J’s recovery but stupid I am not.
