Hopeless Promotion

It had been (3) days of serious pain at home denying anything was wrong with me. Then it was 6 hours at the hospital after I decided something was wrong before they gave my my first injection of pain medicine. I think this picture was taken just after they administered it. I can't begin to describe the stupid sort of pain I was in. It was something close to being shot in the belly a number of times and having some idiot with a hot knife trying to dig out the bullets. I was insane and I must be a serious hard-ass or fool to have dealt with it that many days without medical attention.

At this point in the game my appendix had already burst (I assumed on the 7th) and as CAT Scans would reveal I needed to be rushed into surgery before it spread everywhere and I'd be in serious trouble.
