what doesn't kill you...

i'll be honest. i thought i was going to die last night.

i mean, if we're being technical, it was about 6:20ish this morning, but regardless, i woke up and it felt like someone was stabbing me with a zillion knives in my side. more specifically, my right side...way more specifically, my lower right side and under my ribs. i sat up. i laid back down. i tried to walk it off, but the pain wouldn't go away. needless to say, i couldn't fall back asleep either.

i googled my symptoms (lack of appetite for the past few days, feel like throwing up, pain in the "lower right quadrant" of my abdomen, fever, etc) and guess what?

my appendix is going to explode and i will probably die.

did you know you can die from appendicitis? gosh...what a way to go. according to webMD, the appendix doesn't rupture until about 24 hours after the initial pain / symptoms start to happen, so i think i've got at least another day or two to live.

so if you don't hear from me again, don't say i didn't warn you.

Appendicitis is unlikely. Much more likely, gallstone. Also possible, pain from not having me around.

i'm calling mom in like ten minutes so if you don't tell her to take you then i'm going to tell her myself..

slash how awesomely cool would that be for you + mom + ruth to all be in the hospital tending to you and your appendix bursting/dyingness and then all of a sudden RUTH'S WATER BREAKS AND SHE HAS THE BABY RIGHT THEN AND THERE?! you'd already be in a hospital. so it's perfect. probably meant to be. duh. so what are you waiting for?

Dear Sarah, you are a total drama queen as usual. Anna: you are not going to die. But you should go to the Doctor. I feel really bad that you've been feeling that way and living under my roof and I didnt even know it, so I'm going to play mom and say I am going to force you to go to the Doctor today. End of story. You can even go to Dustin's future doctor if you like, he wont mind sharing.
