Thank God that this isn't Canada or Britain and medical conditions can be addressed with reasonable urgency. The periodic recurrence of my 14-year-old son having his appendix become inflamed is over. I just returned from the hospital where Matthew is recovering nicely after a 30-minute operation that removed his cause of severe pain. He'll be left with a scar of less than two inches. The doctor patched the incision with a 2" x 2" piece of gauze and told him he could probably go home tomorrow or Monday. This episode contrasts sharply with my experience 25 years ago when I was hospitalized for 6 days and still sport an 8-inch reminder of my incision.
