Ode to my Appendix!

You’re an odd appendage Appendix

No-one knows quite what you’re for!

But over the last few days

You certainly given me what for!

Pretty aren't they?

Not my appendix!

I knew I felt a bit grotty

I knew things weren’t quite right!

And then a strange thing happened…

I refused  wine on a Friday night!

This pretty little flower is one I photographed today just up the road in a place called Water End. Ain't it pretty?

Definitely not my appendix!


To cut a long story short (phew!)

A story that isn’t so comical

The doctor took one look and said…

 “Go straight to hospital!”

"And she certainly didn't do anything snazzy iPhoto wizardy at all....this is really what we look like!" smiled Polonius Purple Heart!

Much prettier than my appendix!


So I’ve been away from WordPress

And I’ve had my appendix removed!

I’m now recovering at home

Feeling slightly battered and bruised!


But I don’t need that appendage

It certainly had no purpose

And I’m back to my blogging world

Without an organ that was surplus!

That’s All!

See Ya xx

  1. Lol, love this. 🙂 My cousin just had her appendix removed, and I felt so bad because she said it hurts to laugh…..I can’t imagine not laughing. 😦 Anyway, hope you feel better soon!!!! 🙂

  2. I had commenced to wonder, Liz! – “where are my daily doses of birdies and flowers and beautiful English countryside?” I asked myself. V. sorry to learn of the pain you will have been through; but these days an appendectomy is as nought. As is the offending organ itself, of course! 😀 Keyhole surgery? One hopes. Welcome home!
