The day began with a trip to Fort Yargo to see colonial life with Karen’s parents. I was going to go, but was feeling pretty lousy. So, I stayed home and slept all day. That evening I went out for a small group meeting, but could stay out long at all. I came home in pain. I went back to bed, but thought it merited a trip to ER. Well, I am glad I did. Nearly 40-years-old and now a few ounces lighter. I had emergency surgery this weekend to remove my appendix. Happy Birthday to me!
