BYE BYE GALL BLADDER

As of Wednesday at 8:00 pm I am gall bladder free! However, I have been blindsided by all the pain and discomfort it has brought. I have had laparoscopic surgery prior and bounced back quickly. This time however, I feel like a steamroller has run over me. Upon my return home from the surgery center I was instructed to take morphine. (I am camped out on the couch as the thought of climbing stairs is not appealing) I take my morphine at midnight and the next thing I realize I am passed out on the kitchen floor. I crawled back to the couch and did not move for the rest of the night. No more morphine for me! It has been raining since Wednesday, I have not lost any gardening days. But when your down and out you think of the the chores that need to be accomplished. Yes mom I will be patient! Till next time.

Morphine is horrid stuff. I told my husband to make sure they never give it to me again unless I'm next to death! Hope you are feeling better this week-end Julie : )

Oh, Julie...somehow I missed this post. I'm so sorry for you pain! Thank goodness all this is behind you now! Bye, bye gallbladder, indeed. Stupid ol' thing. Crazy story about the morphine. I'm wondering what you wanted to do in the kitchen that you didn't remember when you woke up. lol
Speedy and complete recovery to you! :-)
