Slice and Dice

It's official - I'm having surgery. But on my 10th straight day of feeling bad, I'm pretty darn excited about putting an end to it all ... the pain that is. And my gall bladder.

I've never had surgery before - other than wisdom teeth - so I'm a little nervous. Fortunately, I'm not worried about the four small scars it will leave on my belly - this gut was never going to win a beauty contest anyway. The incision in my navel, though - eww, I don't like to think about that one too much.

The surgery will be on Friday morning, and I'm just hoping I can make it till then without any more attacks (like the one this morning). Believe it or not, I'm actually tired of missing work!

This little adventure has made me appreciate the joys of showering, getting dressed and going somewhere, anywhere. And feeling good enough to do something around the house. I tell you, the poor bathroom is languishing for some attention. (Meanwhile, the functioning bathrooms are getting much more attention than they ever asked for.)

Maybe this weekend I'll be so pitiful from the post-surgery pain that Darwin will do anything to alleviate it - even work on the bathroom!

Aww, Kristin, big hugs! I'm sure all will go super smoothly and you'll feel fantastic soon.

I agree with everyone above, milk it with Darwin! You deserve some waiting on, hand and foot!

The belly button thing really isn't that bad.

Kristen, I've been reading your blog from the beginning recently~ love it!

Don't fret, sugarpie, I had my gall bladder out, and it was a good thing. But see if they'll give you non-vomit meds. They decided to let me get rid of surgery toxins the old-fashioned, natural way, which I appreciate, but ow! ow!
I was awful for three days, then I was free from gall bladder pain forevermore!

Don't know if you'll do this, but now and then, if I eat anything too close to bedtime, I'll get a nauseated feeling in my stomach when I'm lying down. But if you're smarter than me about chocolate binges and late night snacks/suppers, I'm sure you'll be fine!
Praying for your speedy and smooth recovery~
