Boy did I ever get way laid! A week ago, after a night filled with unrelenting pain, my Mom took me up to the hospital emergency room. They ran tests, did ultrasounds, a cat scan and administered morphine. It seems I had two or more gall stones stuck in the viaduct that leads out of my gall bladder. Things were backing up, my temp was climbing and my white blood count was as well.
They were hoping to get things settled down and then maybe do the surgery in a week of two. Well, things didn't settle down and on Saturday morning they operated. My surgeon was fabulous!! Even though he didn't think he would be able to get my gall bladder out using the laprascopic method, he was somehow able to , and I am so grateful! I was told by several nurse's and attending Dr.'s that my gall bladder was the most awful, nasty swollen looking one they had ever seen. Not something to brag about. However, it's gone, and I came home Monday afternoon.
Yesterday, I went back to my surgeon and he removed a drainage pump that was taking out extra fluid. Because, even though I hadn't ate for nearly 4 days, I gained 11 lbs the day after the surgery from all the fluid they used to clean me out with. I told them I didn't care for their diet. hehe. Now, hopefully I can get back to blogging and visiting with my fellow bloggerettes! Oh, and I picked these pics today, just because they make me happy!! And Happy Thursday everyone! I will get around to visiting you as soon as I can.
