Inside Out

Time to 'fess up, my daughter Jess has been pretty poorly for the last five days, we originally thought she might have been suffering as a result of trying to take her old dad on in a chile eating contest, (that Jardines, 7J Jalepeno Verde is serious stuff, like a tattoo in a jar) Mr's B's mum intuition kicks in and we end up at the Baptist Emergency Hospital to get Jess checked out, Mr's B reckons Jessie B has the classic symptoms of an appendicitis, (Mr's B is a physiotherapist and Scottish, don't even go there) the Doctor in the emergency room agrees, 'typical appendicitis symptoms, I've checked the' 'Mcburney, not a modest man' counters Mrs B, the doc suggests a CT scan, twenty minutes later Jess is down for a scan, it's not an appendicitis 'Godamn, if I owned a hat, I'd have to eat it!' Turns out she has a kidney infection, she gets hooked up to some intravenous fluids and drugs, one of the hardest things I've ever had to do is leave my little girl in that hospital......


  1. Never argue with a canny Scotswoman, on ya mum, job well done . . . get well Jess, Whitey.

  2. Egad. Never a good time for a kidney infection.

  3. Hope she gets better soon, my best wishes for y'all.
