Missy Undergoes Emergency Appendectomy Surgery

I had to undergo emergency surgery for appendicitis on March 16th. Luckily, I caught it very early and my appendix did not rupture. The surgery went great! They were able to remove my appendix with no complications. I was definitely in a lot of pain the first few days and couldn't do a whole lot by myself. (It's amazing how much we use our core and stomach muscles in day to day life. You don't fully realize this until you are unable to use them.)

Having never undergone surgery before, I was definitely nervous and didn't know what to expect in my road to recovery. Fortunately, I am recovering very well and getting better and better every day! I had my follow up appointment last week and my surgeon said everything looked great! She cleared me to run, do yoga, but still no bowling until the 4 week mark due to weight restrictions. I should be cleared to bowl very soon!

For those that follow me on social media, THANK YOU for your continued well wishes, prayers and encouragement during all of this! I appreciate all of it immensely! And if you don't follow me on social media yet..PLEASE "Like" my Facebook Fan Page - Missy Parkin, Follow me on Twitter @missyparkin or on Instagram @Missy_Parkin so you can get the most current up-to-date information.

I've been getting asked a lot if I'll be well enough to bowl the first PWBA Tour Stop at the end of this month in Las Vegas. The answer is YES! I'll be bowling all of the PWBA Tour stops this season and can't wait to get back out on the lanes!

Until then...
