Well, I have to have my gallbladder taken out!

The last week I have had these severe attacks of pain in my chest and back. The pain is so awful that I can't do anything. Brian took me to the instacare and I had an ultrasound. The diagnosis: gallstones. I guess that it is really common to develop gallstones during pregnancy. We women sure go through a lot to bring these little babies into the world. So in about 2 weeks, I have to have surgery. I am a little nervous, but glad to know that after it is out I won't have the pain. In the meantime, I am so afraid of having another attack. They say that eating fatty foods triggers the attacks, so I am trying to eat really low fat foods. Knowing I can't have certain foods makes me want them even more! I want ice cream, steak and french fries!
The surgery is pretty simple. It is an outpatient procedure and I will be home in a few hours. It makes me happy to know that I am not going to have to stay overnight.
So that is today's update. Wish it was about something else!

Evening Walk

We have gotten in the habit of taking walks over at the South Ogden Nature Park. We love it over there. Jack runs everywhere- Last week he chased some pheasants. I really like it because I get to be with my little family and it is helping me get back into shape. Here are a few pics-
