Because it can't ever be simple

I'm laughing as I type this. I've just gotten to the point where it all strikes me as funny...

I met with the surgeon yesterday. It's never good when he starts with "They told you about the gallstones, but I have a surprise." Doctors should never use the word surprise, it's just a bad idea.

The surprise was that one of my gallstones is floating in my bile duct and if they don't get it out it could cause serious problems. The best way to do this is with an ERCD before they remove my gallbladder. So Monday is my ERCD, Tuesday is my gallbladder surgery, and what I thought was going to be a quick outpatient surgery has turned into a two night hospital stay.

My mom will be here Sunday to help Hubby with kids and me deal with all the medical information that is getting thrown at me. I've learned more medical terms this year...

I'll try and update as the week goes on, but at the latest when I get home Wednesday. I'm a little nervous about all of this, so prayers would be appreciated.


  1. Prayers are definitely on their way.

  2. Don't hesitate to call if we can keep the kids or help out in some other way. I'll be home! Sunny
