Last week I was thinking how about this time last year was when I ruptured the disk between my L4 and L5 vertabrae, so I had been just the tiniest bit paranoid of doing anything that might cause a repeat of said injury. So needless to say when I got a stomach ache around 2:30am Wednesday morning I didn't really think much of it...for the first hour. Then I tried everything I could think of to get it to go away. Switching positions didn't help, using the restroom didn't help, a hot bath helped a bit, but one can't exactly go to sleep in the tub. (My husband would have been very annoyed to find my drowned in the tub! O_O) By quarter after 5, I was starting to get really worried so I woke my husband up to ask his opinion. (He has had a little bit of combat medic training, so I had hoped he might have some answers) We hemmed and hawed about whether or not to go to the hospital. I'm not a big fan of them myself, I tend to be pretty healthy. But when hubby suggested I search online for my symptoms and the 30 foot walk had me in severe pain I KNEW it was time to go. And it was a good thing we did. Turns out I had several gallstones and my gallbladder was in the beginning stages of an infection. The Doc decided not to wait and scheduled me for surgery that afternoon to remove it!
Now of course this couldn't have happened at a worse time for a mom as we were supposed to go meet the boys teachers Wednesday afternoon so they (6th and 2nd grade) could start school on Thursday. Well the boys weren't too upset to get 2 extra days of Summer vacation! LOL I came home Thursday afternoon and have been recovery slowly here. I am still very sore and tired, but very glad to be out of the hospital. I know many of you are friends with me on Facebook and already know all this, but I'd just like to take a minute to THANK everyone who sent prayers, healing thoughts and good wishes my way. They were and are very appreciated!
It's been ages since I posted and I have been busy doing things, so I will hopefully take this recovery time to try and catch up on my blogging and hopefully my shop as well.
