Home from Emergency Surgery

Well, as some of you know, and others do not. I got admitted for emergency gallbladder removal surgery late Monday night. I have been in the hospital all week. I am home now, and finally back online. So I am trying to catch up but I'll have to ask that you all be patient with me. I'm only about 60% back. And still quite sore. But alive and that is good.

No stitching so far, but maybe this weekend I can work on Stitch or Die, as it's easier and stuff. Still on pain meds so sometimes kinda loopy. But getting there.

You take care of yourself! Get well soon!!

My sister-in-law went through five years of gallbladder pain, so although you probably can't think about feeling 1000% better right now, you will in a short period of time. And that awful pain will never bother you again. Rest, relax, get better!

60%??? That's like half dead! I bet it is 95%, you just don't know it because you are 120% all the time! Stitch or Die is en excellent choice, the little bugger will put smile on your face and make you feel better. Have a wonderful day.

Well hopefully your gall bladder was the cause for all your discomfort and now that it's gone you can get on with recovery!!! Take it easy and rest up!

At least you know what was causing your discomfort, and I am sure you'll be back to your old self before too long. Take care!

Prayers for a quick recovery. I had that surgery a couple of years ago.

TammyK said...

Wow, spent the whole week in the hospital? Were there complications? My sis in law had that surgery in the doctor's office, believe it or not. Of course it was laparoscopic but still I wouldn't have risked it. Hope you're feeling 100% soon.

get better soon and enjoy your opportunity to watch the Olympics :)

Shelley said...

I am so glad to hear that you are okay. I know how dangerous that darned gallbladder can be. Almost lost my Grandma to it last summer because gallstones blocked her liver. But, she has never been under anesthisia and refuses to have her gallbladder removed even though all the scans show it is loaded full of stones. I dread the day another stone blocks something else.

Take it easy and if your loopy please don't stitch as the frogs will more than likely attack.

Hugs,

Ouch! I'm so sorry that you're out of commission. Be gentle with yourself and don't rush your recovery.
