Thanks to everyone who has sent me private comments, and Twitter comments, about my Mom. She hadn't been feeling well for about a week, but seemed to get better while camping this weekend- turns out her appendix burst while camping. She even kayaked with me for 4-5 hours with a burst appendix and didn't even know it! Monday, after returning from camping, she went downhill fast and was admitted to the ER. Because the appendix burst and septicimia, she will be in the hospital for at least a week. Surgery went well but she's on a lot of morphine and antibiotics because of infection. Thank you for all your kind emails and Twitter comments. I appreciate ya'll thinking about my family!

Holy Cow! I somehow managed to miss your tweet about this! I hope she gets better quickly! She is one strong lady! My SIL had appendicitis and thought she was dying. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys!!

I had a ruptured and gangrenous appendicitis last year too. They told me I had been sick for at least a week and didn't know it. I recovered completely and hope your mom does too! Best wishes to you all - Carmon
