Miss Julia doesn't want anyone to get bored. Today's excitement: a ruptured appendix. That would explain the very high white blood counts, and her agitation. As soon as the surgeons cleaned out her abdomen, her vitals began to improve. They feel that they were able to do a good job getting her well cleaned out, and she should start to feel a lot better. She has been back in her room for a while and Carrie was with her. She was having some excitement with fluctuating blood pressure, but was relatively stable when I talked with Carrie a few minutes ago.
