Gall Bladder Surgery

Ok, so the chinese food was not good fortune for the Gall Bladder. I woke up this morning in pain but was going to the doc anyway so that was good fortune! Turns out he said "guess we need to look at some elective surgery". So I picked from a list of a few names that I knew from working at the hospital and called and have myself a consult this Wednesday after my physical therapy. The office girl said typically they can get a surgery done within the next week but my situation is a little more delicate. My surgeon will need to contact my neurosurgeon and talk before hand and I have to have an anesthesia consult. I guess a C-section, 5 brain surgeries and gall bladder surgery is a lot for one person in a three month time period. LOL! Apparently the GB surgery is a one day quick thing and I'll go home the same day. Hoping to squeeze it in before Brooke's baptism but we'll see. We may have to put it on the week after and hope I don't continue to have attacks. We're going to talk about it all with the doc on Wednesday. At least I'm going to be better quickly from it and no more pain after I eat! Guess I pushed it last night with the Sesame Chicken. Darn it! That's all for now. I'll update once I have a surgery date!

At least it is a one day surgery. No more big things.

For the update, there was no sausage showing so October 27, we should know boy or girl. I will post pics in another day or so.

After everything you've been through, this will be a piece of cake...you can do it! When I had mine out, I felt better right away and will pray that you do too. Please check my blog when you have a minute for an update on the girls. :)
