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!
