The post is dedicated to my pre-op nurse Brandee! I may be spelling her name wrong, but I was scared to death at the time

It was just 3 weeks ago when I drove to ER with pain in my side I had been living with for a couple of weeks, just kept getting worse. I “goggled” everything and nothing really added up. I just had to go. Entered ER at 8:00 am, all the tests they do and lots of doctors visiting, they said they were keeping for the night as my appendix was swollen and they were not going to let me out until the Surgeon gave me a look.
Next thing I knew, transport showed up and there I went off to surgery. CRAP! I was scared. My nurse was amazing and made me less scared and we talked food 🙂 See told me bout these wonderful “Carrot Fries” and of course it was all I could focus on!
I hope this does her justice! Thank you so much for making the whole crazy thing a good experience and you are amazing at what you do!!!!
