I am a Dr.

Yesterday, using google, I diagnosed SweetKeith with Appendicitis. We went to the hospital at 7:30pm last night. It is Appendicitis. He just got medi-vaned over to another hospital with better doctors. I'm home quick to let Lola out and am heading over to be with him. Running on 2 hours of chair sleep. Need coffee. Scratch that---coke :] UPDATE: Keith was diagnosed more accurately with a Perforated Appendix. We waited a total of 29 hours and Keith is now in a room. His nurses and doctor are nice. They don't think operating will be necessary.. instead, they're gonna suck the poison out with a long needle. We'll see what happens. He's on good drugs now and so the pain isn't too bad. The nurses wouldn't let me stay because I'm a girl...so now I am home in bed. We're both so sad, this is our first night apart. Thank you everyone for your care in the comments! Love you guys!! I told Keith about all the nice things you said :) He said awwww, and felt special. Goodnight :)

  17. That sucks! But I'm so glad he got to the hospital and everything will be ok. I know how it feels to be apart like that - when I was in the hospital after having luke, they wouldn't let Todd stay overnight and it was the first night we had spent apart too. Very sad, but he'll be bettter soon! Love!

  18. dang...not fun. you should have your own show, doing the whole online diagnosis thing all charlie bartlett like :) i would watch it every day.

    tell keith we hope he gets better, needle in the belly doesn't sound nice but at least its not too invasive right?

    anyhoo, big hugs to you guys.

  21. I'm kinda wondering about that sucking the poison out with a long needle part. If I were him I would have had the surgery, it's quick and not that bad. I can't believe they wouldn't let you watch because you're a girl. OMG. Unless you just didn't want to watch. It's actually pretty cool. I'm a Nurse though, so I think most bodily things are pretty cool. Yea, I know gross. I hope he gets better soon and everything works out. Please tell him if his fever doesn't go away and he doesn't feel better really quickly to ask for the surgery. Although after 3 days of antibiotics he shouldn't show signs of fever and the symptoms will decrease. Saying prayers for him.
