I ended up having what I thought was a normal indigestion episode Saturday along with my sugars being a little up. When the pain didn't go away Sunday it turned out that I had appendicitis. I had to wait what seemed like forever until I could have the surgery. I ended up having it at about 5am monday morning. I'm still experiencing a little pain from where they had to cut into the muscle but I am just relieved that I got out of the hospital with no complications (other than mild soreness that will go away)and that the Surgery went well(First ever and hopefully last). I still have to go back next week for them to remove the sutures. I'm just glad that I'm out and hopefully I can get back to my normal routine soon. I also remember that they gave me some jello and popsicles for my liquid diet and rose my sugars a little, and I havent had my normal lantus dosage in 3 days so I'm really looking forward to getting those more under control. I also wonder if the ketones at my last doctor visit was a sign of it.
