I don’t normally discuss my personal life or health issues on here. Normally, it’s sports, of course. With this, I wasn’t posting the last five or six days. Since 2006, I have had several violent episodes where I would puke my guts out for about a day. Sometimes, it would happen every other month. There was an instance or two that I would go a year without one. I’ve went to several different specialists and they couldn’t figure out my issue. I thought it was just a stomach flu or bad dieting. I would change up my eating habits quite a bit and still, the same results.
Back in October, things began to change. I went to Central Dupage Hospital (Rated in the top 100 in the country) and more detailed tests began. The doctors there are truly the best. This past weekend, I had a three-day illness where I was tired, vomiting and really out of it. My employee who is also a nurse, noticed some of the issues. I went back to Central Dupage to speak to my specialist and after some more testing, it was revealed that my appendix exploded some time ago but it didn’t show up until they did more blood work and another CT scan.
My appendectomy was late Monday night and I finally got back to Dekalb a short time ago. But, once again, thanks to Central Dupage Hospital in Winfield. The surgeon, doctors and nurses saved my life because if this continued, it would have been much worse. I am very thankful. These folks are the best.
Anyway, as I was resting up, I had the TV on quite a bit (including that asswhooping the Bulls took last night with all of us in the room watching) and heard the Bears made some moves. I will comment more on those in the next day or two. I will say this for now: Emery is making some good moves. He isn’t signing the household names (yet) but in the big picture, it’s not necessary to do that. If last year was any proof, he is signing the right players without having to break the bank.
Like I said, I will comment more in the next day or two. Just remember, listen to what your body says and not your mind. It’s been a shitty few years for me but I am glad I probably won’t have to worry about this stuff anymore.
