I’m home and recovering. No complications and the doctor said my gallbladder didn’t look happy. It was inflamed, had scar tissue and just looked sick. It was good we took it out and he’s 98% sure that was my problem.

Been drinking liquids mostly but did try some real food. Ate some bread today, and before that made me sick, this time it didn’t. That’s hopeful! More food tomorrow, and slowly build my way back up to regular food, although after all this, I’m thinking much healthier food, and exercise. The swimming pool will be open soon.

Lessons learned:

Pain is bad! Spend 10k and you can get it fixed (hopefully)

My veins are evil. I have the bruises from the 5 tries to get IV going on Thursday to show it.

You can live on tapicoa and water for 12 days and not die. It’s not a great diet, but you can loose over 15lbs doing it.

I love water now!

Salads are the most beautiful thing there is after 12 days of pudding. Lettuce, tomato and honeymustard. It’s the food of heaven!

Surgery hurts, and makes you really tired. I keep falling ….ZZzzZzzhuh….. asleep with out realizing it.

There are times, when even knitting is hard… and that’s sad, because usually it passes the minutes quicker.

God is good all the time, and all the time God is good.

I have the best husband in the world, to bad he’s stuck with me.

Drug meds make you write silly posts at 11pm at night.

I’m off to try and catch up on my 2008 Hats. I’m 4 or 5 behind so I have this really snazzy idea of knitting 5 hats on one circular needle! woosh. Baby hats though, but 5 different patterns, 5 different yarns. Should work….. send help if you see me all tied up.

(really I’m not as drugged as I sound)

Hugs to everyone!

    So very happy to hear your good news.
    Now just take it easy, relax, and build yourself up.

    Thank you for the ballband hat. I think I will knit one up for a little friend in the neighborhood.
