Out with the old...gall bladder. I had two attacks in December, the second one sending me to the ER again. I'm done. I went for my surgical consult this morning. I'm scheduled for surgery on Thursday, January 28th. I have to go for a pre-op nurse interview the week before. Noni has volunteered to take care of the kids while I'm having it done and during my early recovery. M and I are both appreciative. I'm not looking forward to paying the costs, the insurance hassle, the hospital, lost work time, and recovery, but I suppose it has to be done.
