|04:07 pm - Final update|
Thanks for kind thoughts. My son had his appendix out at 10pm last night, and he came home about an hour ago, and he's asleep in his own bed now. I think it's good they get people out of hospital as quick as possible, though it's probably to save money.
I can't imagine how hard it is for parents whose kids get real bad stuff, and are ill for a long time. I'm just glad we were so lucky.
