One day in December, I was very sick. Vomiting, not repetitively, but continuously. Over and over, for hours. I thought I had the flu and acted accordingly. Ginger ale, crackers, all in an effort to minimize the illness! Eventually, Hubs and I made the journey to a "minute clinic" type of place to be told that they did not accept my insurance.
Upward and onward, I say! We went to the local hospital.
I spent a few hours under a morphine induced haze, being subjected to numerous tests. As it wore off and the doctor came back, (Dr. Behr) came back and asks:
"How do you feel about surgery?"
We were shocked! Blindsided! I thought I just had the flu. As it turned out, my gallbladder was full of "sludge". Not stones, but sludge. I was not aware that sludge could be occur in your body, but, apparently, it can and can be lethal.
The next day my gallbladder was removed laparoscopically.
It has been a very slow recovery, as I have done things I should not have, such as lifting Dozer. (How could I say no to him)! I tore open an incision and had to have it repaired. All I can say is ouch!
|Such a sweet face! How could I say no to him?|
I am doing much better and am back to providing you with must have reviews!
Lots of Love, Modern Mommy
