I know how that feels! Get well soon Xia, and make sure you get lots of pampering while you can.

Damn, that's rough.

Here also hoping you recover well and soon.

If he's having his appendix removed where will he go to find out who all of the characters and places in the book were?

;D  ;D  ;D

Get well soon, @xiagan! Hopefully you'll be comfortable enough to find pleasure in reading while you recover  ;)

So my search for an appendix cake was not very fruitful.



I did find this (above), which at first I thought might be an appendix but is probably a baby's foot coming out of a c-section, given that most of the images that came up for my appendix cake search were actually vaginas, many of whom had babies or pieces of babies coming out of them.  Most of them were just disturbing but I found this uterus really aesthetically pleasing:



There were some ACTUAL appendix cakes, but they just looked way too real and damn ugly:





I"M NOT KIDDING THIS IS AN ACTUAL CAKE:



Okay enough grossing you out.  This has been educational for me.  I've seen like a million cake vaginas now and I also learned not to take laxatives when you have appendicitis:



So ummmmmmm......

You're all too sweet. :D
Thanks a lot and your good wishes must've worked wonders!
I haven't taken pain medication since Wednesday and am at the moment traveling alone from Berlin to Sweden by train (and ferry). I'm still easily exhausted and carrying stuff doesn't feel good but from what I heard and read, I had the best possible outcome. :)

Boy, I can't remember if I've ever been away from the forums for such a long time in the last ~six years... (Can't remember because I haven't.)

I'm really glad that all the functions are working again. Thanks a lot, @Overlord, I have absolutely no expertise in this area, but it couldn't have been easy.

You don't know how many unread topics there are. How do you expect me to catch up with that? Hopefully the wifi on the train is stable then I should manage some of it.

Thanks again, you're amazing. :)

@Bradley, I'm wondering. Do I want to google vagina cakes? What are they for? "Congratulations, you have a vagina! Here, have another one!"

There are countless reasons to celebrate the vagina
