That's the part that perplexes me the most. Appendicitis is (normally) pretty routine in terms of diagnosis/treatment. Very weird that they couldn't diagnose it right away.
Nonetheless, good to hear all went well and you're on the mend, Artashes. Just think. Once you're strong enough to get back onto the tennis court, you'll be a 1/2 pound lighter (I'm approximating the weight of an appendix), so you'll be that much more limber and agile and responsive to your opponent. He won't know what hit him!!!
Oh, and dubs, careful what you wish for. Knowing Artashes personally, he is very
competitive. Do you really
want him coming down stateside to kick some US a$$???
