body parts

I had hoped to make it through life with all body parts intact. Alas, 'tis not to be. I am being punctured at 7 a.m. to remove my "great BIG stones and the gallbladder's packed full!" Such indignities associated with any medical procedures. Boo.

After suffering for avery long time, the Mrs. had that done about 8 years ago. Once you recover from the surgery you are going to feel a hell of a lot better.

I will be thinking of you and the doctors attending you. And on my way downtown will stop by and light one of those candles. You are going to feel so much better afterwards.

Actually, you really will feel loads better once it's done. They keep telling me the polyps on mine aren't causing any problems.. right, sure.

Poorly designed organ in reality. Hope all goes well, keep up updated so we don't fret too much, pretty please??

My friend had hers removed, and when it was all said and done, she wondered why the hell she hadn't done it all sooner. I hope you have the same experience. :)

Thinking about you.

Ow! Good luck, sweetcakes. Here's hoping those itty-bitty incisions heal up soon without too much soreness. And hey... don't worry about getting through life with ALL your parts intact -- Goddess will love you when you get to heaven even if a few (unnecessary) parts are missing. ;-)

Maybe you'll have time to regale us with written stories while you recuperate? Smooches...

Surgery sucks, but they've really improved the procedures, so hopefully you will be all recuperated and not dealing with gallstones and the pain. I'm thinking about you sweetie!

thanks for all your good wishes. my gallbladder was so full of stones, i surely lost five pounds :-)

aside from stopping breathing a couple of times in recovery, all is well. today a little skin infection starting. hope it's not that godawful flesh eating bacteria, because otherwise i just feel as if i've been punched in the gut and i'm pretty frisky.

hospitals suck. doctors . . . pretty sucky. fortunately, my assigned operating nurse was a democrat and i told her to keep them from killing me so i could vote in november and then we discussed politics :-)

Let me tell you something. I had my gall bladder out when i was 25. (My father had his out when he was 25, so we figure we come from a strain of peasants with less gall.) In those days, they made a big old mother incision half way across the belly, and you were bedridden for about five days. I had asked them to save the wretched stone that had caused me so much pain, but they forgot. The Archbishop came to visit me while I was in the hospital. He was effecting a warm pastoral persona and he sat on the bed while we chatted. He also sat on my foot which was under the covers. I was in extreme pain from this, but I couldn't figure out a diplomatic way to say "Get your ass off my foot, Your Excellency." Get well soon!

I want to say "break a leg," but that's probably not very helpful going into surgery. After years in the theatre, I still can't bring myself to say "good luck," ever.

How about, "let us know that you're okay when it's all over" ... ? Better?

Oh, so glad it came out OK. Did you have the laproscopic deal? Glad to hear you're OK.

Did they make you walk from surgery to your room? It is the latest in evil medical procedures. Make the patient suffer while they are under anesthesia, and they won't remember. They are clever. At least you had a Democrat as your O.R. Nurse. Did any of my Tulsa relatives cut you open?

We still need to catch up about the tranny daddy baby. I laughed and laughed at your phone call.

And Talbot's is the answer for sweaters. My sisters are addicted to Talbot's sweaters.

Lynette, we need an update. Thanks.

Had that done a long time ago. I had small but very hard stones that kept getting caught in the ducts. I'm sure you'll have a fraction of the scar I got. Most important, you'll feel better. Best wishes, Lynette!

Oh, what's a gall bladder in the long run? You already have a regular bladder. Having two is just American excess.
