well, met with the Surgeon today & he is going to yank that cranky gallbladder right out & take a "peek" @ other things while in there ! They say IF they find no other problems and IF there are no complications, I will come home the SAME day !!! (BOOOOOO) I was hoping for 1 night in the hospital bed.... Y'all might htink Im crazy .... but those adjustable beds are AWESOME !! Im trying to talk hubby into getting a pair for our room... 2 twins to a King... hey... just like on a cruise...lol !!
Of course, my son is already biting his nails & is scared to death of me going in hospital, and thinks I should TRY SOMETHING ELSE ??? uh - been there, done that... I say take out everything I dont HAVE to have ! Anyway... as of now, scheduled for the 22nd of this month... will keep y'all posted !
On a good note, I saw my best friend this weekend & she wants me to get a cruise lined up for her family & ours... now if I can just convince hubby... he would rather do a all-inclusive.... we'll see !!
P.S. RollerDonna, hope u r getting rest & peace of mind during this sad mind.... (hugs for you & your family )
Hi Steph, Good luck with the surgery. I will be sending prayers and good thoughts your way. Take care and get well so you can plan that cruise.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
Steph, this is a good time to convince DH to go on that cruise. He'll be so concerned for your health that he'll agree to almost anything. Ah...don't call it manipulation, <G> just call it a suggestion.
Arthroscopic surgery is a great thing though. Getting home the same day is great. It's the next day when you really start to feel the pain. Oh well, I hope everything works out OK.
I will be praying that everything will go smoothly. I'm sure that once the recovery has taken place you will feel much better. And as a reward for being such a good patient I do think a cruise would be in order. Hope your husband has a change of heart.
Thanks for your good wishes, and I send send mine to you for a successful surgery.
I like the idea of a cruise for recovery, I could sure use one to recover from the nightmare of these past few months!
Good luck with the surgery. Be glad that they are now doing it with the scope. Not much of a scar and recovery is much much quicker. I have to agree with you about going ahead and getting this out of the way. You will feel so much better. Do keep in mind that Tums or Rolaids will more than likely be a part of your life from here on out, but that is a small price to pay if you want to eat spicy foods.
Good luck with your surgery, Steph. I know what you mean about the adjustable beds! The best night's sleep I've ever had besides on a cruise! (Love that rocking!!) Be sure to tell DH that a "recovery cruise" is the best medicine!
