Friday night I returned home from work at 5. 30pm to find my teenage child with acute stomach pain. My child had stayed home from school that day as had been vomitting during the night and I thought this was simply a case of gastro. My husband and I ended up taking our teenager to the Angliss Hospital in Upper Ferntree Gully by 7pm. Was diagnosed with appendicitis by 8pm. We received wonderful care by each nurse (especially Irena) and the doctors (Andrew and Adrian) and Xavier (surgeon). Our child came home at 1pm Sunday and has recovered fully.
