my dad does not have appendicitis. so far, they think he has an infected colon and perotinitis, which is inflammation of the peritoneum (the membrane that surrounds the internal organs). my mom originally thought he was going to be able to go home tomorrow, but they’re keeping him until at least tuesday now so they can do a colonoscopy on monday and try to figure out what’s going on. that means he’s now on a clear liquid diet. when i called my mom, i could hear him in the background asking me to sneak him in a cheeseburger. hehe. we just got home from the wedding and i’m not feeling well myself, so i think we’re going to go up tomorrow and see him. i just hope it’s just an infection and they don’t find anything more serious on monday.
