The pain of a stomach ache. The pain throughout my body was powering over. Laying in bed wondering what I should do. I finally fell asleep.

Monday the 22, I drove myself to the hospital. Soon enough I figured out the pain I was having was not just a stomach ache. It was my appendix that burst. They rushed me into surgery that hour. It was the first surgery I have every had. 

I woke up from my surgery with the doctor in my face telling me that it was all done. Then they took me into a room that was going to be my home for a few days. The room number coincidentally was 510, I was shocked. 

I finally got to go home on Thursday. Learning all the basic things in life over again; walking, sitting, making food, and lots more.
