Well this has been quite a few days for me! As most of you know, I went in for gallbladder surgery yesterday ~ and as some of you know, it was also my 16th wedding anniversary! Bill and I joked that at least we got to spend the day together and it will certainly be one of our more memorable "celebrations" lol.
Actually, sweet guy that he is, he surprised me Thursday night with a bouquet of gorgeous fall flowers:
And then Friday morning, just before we left for the hospital he surprised me with some post-surgery treats:
Godiva truffles (my favorite!) and a box of Ina's brownie mix (that he - and the boys - will bake for me). You see, I've had to restrict my diet considerably lately due to the gallbladder situation (low-fat, bland foods etc.) so I will be looking forward to a few indulgences now that things are resolved. :)
So now I'm home and everything went smoothly yesterday. Except for the tonsillectomy I had done when I was 4 (which needless to say I can barely remember) this was my first time having surgery. I was mostly nervous about the general anesthesia - only because my brother reacted poorly to it when he had his gb out a few years ago. He was so sick they kept him overnight and I was anxious that would happen to me. After sharing my concerns with the doctors, they decided to up my anti-nausea medication (inlcuding a patch I am still wearing behind my ear). So far everything feels ok - things are pretty tender to say the least but the pain medication helps. Bill has taken time off through mid-next week so I can just rest up and concentrate on getting back to 100%.
I will say, Bill sure has his work cut out for him! He'll be shuttling the kids wherever they have to go, minding the housework, making meals, supervising their studies and taking care of me! Come to think of it, that all sounds familiar! ;) He's a good sport about it all though and I am very lucky to have him!
So I think that's all for right now, I just wanted to check in and let you all know I'm home and doing fine and I truly appreciate all the kind thoughts and prayers you have left for me here at the blog. I really do have the very nicest readers. :)
I will check back in again next week ~ for now, enjoy your weekend and keep safe and be well!
