He was discharged tonight around dinnertime. That “original pain” mentioned in the previous blog post, that sent Dave to the ER on Wednesday night in the first place, hasn’t returned since about this time last night.

A Gastro-Intestinal specialist worked with Dave’s case today and presented this as the cause: mesenteric adenitis. Basically a virus affecting the lymph nodes near the appendix. Read more at the website I linked. I’m anything but smart when it comes to such medical issues. Dave seemed to fit the bill according to the article, though.

He doesn’t regret losing his appendix, we figured it would have hit him at some point in his life. Call it preventive medicine.

Dave’s probably on quarters (i.e., at home on doctor’s orders) for the week, which is fine.
