My Holiday at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital
After severe abdominal pains, I self diagnosed my problem a possible appendicitis. I went to the emergency room at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital on the 4th of July and spent the day with testing before my diagnosis was confirmed. I spent the night on IVs and had a Laparoscopic Appendectomy on Sunday morning. I was able to go home on Sunday afternoon. I now need to take it easy for a couple of weeks. Seniors need to know that appendicitis is not restricted to younger people. Be alert if you have symptoms and get immediate medical attention.
Do not hesitate to object when you encounter a hospital employee without a mask. Early Sunday morning, the man sent to draw blood for my blood test was unmasked at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital. He said he knew that he was supposed to wear a mask.
