Still waiting on the ultrasound...so fasted all day, 6pm...no can't do the scan until tomorrow...oh well getting by....little old Yaya Maria went home and my new roomie is a bit of a nightmare...telly on full ball, speaking to the nurses like they are her servants, just rude and demanding and obnoxious.

Probably Gunna be another long night.

Glad you have a diagnosis and a plan and will be on to the mending up part soon.  Fasting sounds like a real drag but if the alternative is more hospital food, it's probably worth it. Rest, rest, rest, and feel better!

Dammit!  I wish I had some words of wisdom to offer but I don't think "do farmer's walks" or "go outside and chop some wood" are applicable in the case of gallstones.

 

I couldn't find the get well soon card I was looking for, but here's a Birthday card I sent to Doreen.  Hope it lifts your spirits.

Crafting, Crafting, Crafting and making masks.  I find during difficult times, I do best if I keep my mind busy.  I started with making a few cute t-shirts for some seniors  graduating from high school, that weren't able to have the usual ceremony or party because of the pandemic.  What started as a thoughtful gesture, turned into so many people wanting them.  So know that I have not forgotten you all.

Those look great, Mee!   The 2020 classes (H.S. and college) are going to have some good bragging rights and will have learned a lot of useful (if not always fun) lessons by the time we get through this, and they'll have the shirts to prove it.

Right now I'm sitting on my chair in my lounge minus one gallbladder and with a repaired hernia. 2 for 1 who could ask for better than that. Didn't even know I had a hernia. 20hrs after a 4 hour surgery and I was discharged. But omg, besides feeling like someone's just used my tummy as a punching bag I am pain free. Wonderful nurses, great doctors, I love my socialist health service.

@Boo there will be no farmers walks for 6 weeks as I have a 5kg limit...come on who am I kidding, there will be no farmers walks. 

If I didn't forget how you do a secret squirrel box I'd give you the gross op notes...the kids not talking to me because I didn't ask them to keep the stone. At least they got it out before it burst.

On the us side, the post op nurse is putting me in her book...when I was coming out of the general she asked if I knew where I was..."of course I bloody know where I am, post op at fricken Sunshine Hossy after just having me gallbladder out" and then I was off with the fairies again....next time I was semi lucid she informed me they found a hernia while in there and fixed that to, do I said "Twofer, gotta love a twofer"...god only knows what else FL from my mouth but she thanked me for the laughs as they wheeled me back to the ward.

This is great news, oh galbladder-less one.  Some of my best pals are without !  Doreen for one !

Only the best for you, sugar.

 

Heal up, don't screw up.  Don't do things that you shouldn't.  HEAR ME ???

 

Love you like a rock,

S

Well that's a load off... or out.  You got rid of two things nobody needs.  Good job to the docs and nurses and what a lovely bonus that you don't have to go broke to get the care you need.  Happy to hear you're home and recovering.

Thanks for the update Jo, glad you're home and feeling better already. Your health system sounds awesome. Ours would've probably never repaired both just because they noticed it! Here we gotta jump through the right hoops first.

Rest up and keep feeling better, 😘😘

Hey Jo,

Glad you're home and surgery was successful.

Enjoy the resting up for a few days.
