Not So Fun

Mesenteric Lymphadenitis refers to the inflammation of the mesenteric lymph nodes.   It causes a clinical presentation that is often difficult to differentiate from acute appendicitis.  The most common cause of meseneteric lymphadenitis is a viral infection.

Now...while Zachary is feeling about 90% better and got to keep his beloved appendix...

It would appear that whatever virus Zachary must have had...has now landed in my body.

Fever, vomiting and some not so pleasant accompanying symptoms for 12 hours and counting.

So glad it was not appendicitis and no operation needed.

So sorry you have it now...

Yes indeed - how wonderful that little Zachary is feeling so much better and didn't have to have surgery.

I hope your recovery will be speedy since you know so quickly what is happening.
