The last couple of days have been a bit of a whirlwind. Dan had been feeling unwell since sunday and as it wasn't improving I took him to the GP's on tuesday for a check up.
He promptly sent us to A & E where after blood tests and an examination Dan was admitted to the adolescent unit.
Late tuesday he had his appendix removed which was inflamed and gangrenous.
Dan has made a really good recovery and was discharged today to convalesce at home.
It's so horrible to see your child in pain and I'd have swapped with him if I could, but he showed real maturity in the way he coped with it all and I'm so glad to have him home.
