If anyone tells you that gall bladder surgery is a breeze, ask three questions.
- How old were you when you had the surgery?
- How sick were you at the time?
- Who are you, Superwoman?
No, I am not going to divulge all the painful details but I could give you some tips if you are facing this surgery. Leave an email address in the comments.
Instead, I am going to list all the things that made my journey easier and lifted my spirits.
- a wonderful hospital staff
- my dear friend, Pam, traveled all the way from Nova Scotia
- peppermint tea, chicken broth, Calmicid from Melaleuaca, Vitamin C, and my rice heating pad
- Juicing a few days in
- Daisies from my three girls with three butterflies in it (they hadn't specified those to the florist:)
- walking in the middle of the night around my house
- afternoon naps
- Hallmark movies (I am going to start writing the names down, Relyn :)
- pictures, videos, and FaceTime with my girls
- a loose pink nightgown I purchased prior to surgery
- a clean house thanks to my niece
- any sort of GOOD news
- stool softeners (I am whispering)
This morning is the first day I awoke and felt a tad bit more like myself.
"I am going to spend this morning with the Lord."
I announced to Hubby today as he went off to the shop. I did and it was wonderful.
I'm pondering if I feel well enough to persuade Hubby to take me to the movies this afternoon.
Thanks for your prayers, dear blog sisters. It's good to be back.
