I thought I'd be back before now...  but I just didn't feel like blogging.  After my gallbladder surgery on the 10th, first I spent a week in agony, then I couldn't think of anything to blog about.

I'm feeling better each day but still a lot of soreness in my belly.  I was glad to be back to work five days after my surgery.  Of course, sitting in an office doesn't take a lot of umph.   I just need to be careful about how I twist, turn and move around.

The first week I could only sleep on my back.  Tylenol was my friend.  Sleep was not.  A heavy, burning pain radiated through my gut and I wondered, was this surgery successful or did it leave me worse off than before?  About a week out the pain slowly but steadily became less and less.

A couple more weeks and I should be back to normal.  Heres to time and healing!

Spring is next month.  I'm ready.  How about you?


  1. It, along with hip/knee replacements, are the most popular of the surgeries I transcribe. I never thought of the recovery period afterwards; lets hope each and every day gets you feeling back to completely normal :) We have had spring like even summer like weather here for the past week or so, so can't complain too much :)


  2. Healing does take time. Dancing the Twist is not recommended. By summer, you will have forgotten all about it.
    In a little over a week, the March winds will be heralding spring. It hasn't been too bad - I can wait, it will hold off the heat of summer that way.

  3. I hope you feel much better by now. It's March and spring will come real soon. Sending hugs.

  4. Is everything OK over there? No posts from you or Gracie for a while.
