Appendicitis–From the #Historical Research Files — 8 Comments

  1. I love this!
    I’m thinking thoush, if you want different ways to kill your characters, just watch Game of Thrones. hahahaha. Talk about diverse methods….

  2. I was fascinated to learn that the only fatality on the Lewis & Clark expedition was a scout who died of appendicitis. Incredible, considering all the trials of that 2-year-long venture.

    • Wow, that’s really interesting, Nikki. And it’s weird how randomly appendicitis seems to strike. Thanks for sharing that tidbit.

  3. I’m glad all went well with your great-nephew. This post was most informative. Medicine has made such strides.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Diane. I wonder what the next 20 years of medical advances will be? Hope I’m around to see them!
