I'm home and on the mend....

Six years ago I had my first gallbladder attack and an ultrasound showed no gallstones. For the next six years I have continued to have attacks every 3-4 months...lasting 2-3days.

After the last one this September, I promised myself and my hubby I would go have more testing.This last attack lasted way more than 2-3 days and was more intense. Well 1 1/2 months, Hida scan and an edoscopy later...Oh! and 1 dead deer..I am gallbladder free! October 16th I went into surgery to have it removed...with only one incision in my belly button and just a few hours in recovery...I am now home recouping!

I am loving all the pampering my family is giving me...especially my hubby! He's a wonderful man and I am very blessed to have him in my life. You just never know how much someone loves you until you have an illness. I am so bad at taking people for granted. I'm learning to be thankful for the trials in this life, they can be used as a tool to open my eyes to the true heart of the ones I love. God knows me so well and knows exactly what I need and when I need it..His timing is perfect!

For the next three heavy lifting! This is going to be a difficult task for me...but with God's grace I will spend the next three weeks letting my family bless me. I just hope I can obey the Doc's orders...I don't want to prolong this recoup time!
