she's aliiiivve!

Hello dear hearts,

Just wanted you to know that I came through the surgery.. and lived to tell!
That is one looopy experience to wake up from... especially when your short-term memory is wiped clean (I asked when I'd get debriefed by the doctor... and they said I already had!).

Providential timing to rush this gall bladder removal for Sunday morning though, since the amazing surgeon said there were a number of gall stones lined up at the escape point of my gall bladder - which would have had me in the E.R in no time!

Now this mama is in recovery mode... finally keeping down fluids, and ingesting a smorgasbord of Jell-O.

Thanks to all my amazing friends and family who are carrying the weight of everyday life that I am ordered not to lift (for 4 weeks..eep).

Thanks for all your kind comments, support, thoughts and prayers.
You're all beautiful!

recovering mama,
Mel ;o)

    Glad to hear you're still with us.  I woke up from my surgery and started crying because I thought the surgeon had been rude to me right before I was put under.  Aw good times.  Perhaps we can start a gallbladderless support group - we can sit around and eat avocados and talk about the good ole gallbladder-with times.

  2.  haha!  Sounds like fun to me... as long as we get to eat all the 'fatty' foods we want at such a group!

  3.  thanks Nicky! Yay is right ;o)

  4. Glad to hear you're alright. Hope you get back to 100% very soon. 


  5.  thanks Nev!  We're on the road to recovery... ;o) xo


Thanks for dropping by our nest, I love to hear from you!
