Bed rest sucks… so I shall read..

If you have been wondering where I have been.. I am around just laying low and reading books while on bed rest from the emergency gall bladder surgery I had on the 23rd of December. I had went in the night before because I was in a lot of pain and the Er thought I was passing a gall stone so they gave me a shot of morphine and sent me home. A few hours later the pain had returned with a vengeance. I went back to the er and begged to be given a bed and not have to sit down in the waiting room like I did the night before. Thank goodness one of the doctor’s took pity on me and gave me a bed while he requested a CT scan.

As I waited for the Ct scan I tried to concentrate on breathing through the pain and not passing out. I had the chills and hoped someone would take me out of my misery. Luckily a nurse came and pushed my bed to the CT room and did whatever needed to be done. I can hardly remember as I was in too much pain to pay attention. I was wheeled back into the room I was put in and the doctor was already there waiting for me. He informed me that we would be going into surgery and taking out my gall bladder as it was about to burst. Not even five minutes passed after that and they already were wheeling me into surgery.

When I woke up I asked ” Will they be starting surgery soon” and the nurse said “honey you are in recovery and all is done” I was still a little dazed and confused. Once in my room and my vitals checked my surgeon walked in and said you are lucky I happened to be here taking out someone else’s gallbladder. Your gallbladder was ready to burst and you would not have been able to make it a couple more hours like that.

I am so thankful I listened to my gut instincts and went back to the ER instead of waiting for the ” gallstone ” to pass which was not the gall stone passing but my gall bladder getting ready to burst. I am still on bed rest since my body wants to be slow and take its time to heal. Hopefully soon I will be A-okay to resume the shenanigans I usually like to get into.





This is why I have been quiet.

In case you are wondering why I have been so quiet lately, it is because I had Lasik surgery on Sept 26,2013 and my eyes haven’t quite healed yet. On my one day post op appt the Dr said that my right eye was healing beautifully but my left eye wasn’t healing as quick as he would have thought. He said my right eye was doing all the work and that is why I was seeing blurry. Days have gone by a week to be exact and I am still seeing blurry. For some reason when I go outside my eyes seem to focus way better and I am able to see a little bit more clearer but definitely not 20/20 vision like I was hoping. The dr put in some kind of tear duct implant on my left eye and said hopefully that would help but it hasn’t helped much.

I go back in tomorrow for my 1 week post op appt and I am hoping I get some solution to this blurry vision. It is quite hard to be online very much and I have to rely remembering what letters are on the keyboard and then having my daughter proof read everything I write. I am sure my girls are getting annoyed at having to read or sometimes write for me. I feel a little bit bummed out about not being able to see clearly right away and I am trying to have as much patience as I can. Lets hope the Dr can figure out why my left eye isn’t doing so good.
