Thanks!

Thanks for all the prayers, good thoughts and get well wishes! I went into the surgery not knowing for certain if it was my gallbladder causing the problems. I was pretty sure it was, and all the test results seemed to indicate it wasn't something else. My two doctors thought thought it probably was, too, but they couldn't be certain. Once the surgeon got in there and saw just how bad it looked, he feels it was the culprit! I won't gross you out with the description, but my gallbladder needed to come out!

The four incisions in my abdomen hurt, but I'll take that over the 24/7 nausea and random painful attacks I've had since August. I'd forgotten how it felt to feel well...normal! But I'm not going to rush it or try to do too much too soon. I plan to take it easy all weekend and recover!

I hope to be back on-line and what not by Monday! But I'll play it by ear.

Hope you have a great weekend. And thanks again!

Love,
Melissa

I knew I'd been kind of spacey lately, but I didn't realize I'd totally managed to miss you were having surgery! I'm so glad it went well. Both my parents have had their gall bladders out and they both felt tons better afterwards!

Hope you get well soon. My hubby had the same surgery years ago. I dropped him off at the hospital, then took the kids to school. By the time I returned to the hospital he was out of surgery. He got home before the kids did from school and he had pork chops that night. I think he was back to work the following day or two.

Take care of yourself.
