I'm back home and the surgery went fine. The doctor said I had lots of gallstones, one almost as big as a golf ball. And my gallbladder was in bad shape. I'm fine now, just sore. We didn't leave the hospital unil after 8, because the doctor had to come around to release me.

Maddie!!! ***hugging gently*** I'm so glad you were able to let us know you're doing fine!

I'm glad the surgery is over and you're home. Now get in that bed! *g* Time for major TLC and rest. :)

Thanks, Lorelei! Believe me, I'm taking it easy, reading and getting caught up on LJ and e-mail.

Are you going to have the gallstones set in jewelery?


17th-Jun-2005 03:54 pm (UTC)
LOL! No, I don't want to see them again.
17th-Jun-2005 02:47 am (UTC) - back home

I know, I was shocked at the size, too. And don't worry, sitting here on the couch with my lap top is the most I'll be doing for a couple of days!

Great News. Take it slow. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to just laze around and read your favorite stories. Feel better soon.
17th-Jun-2005 03:57 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Mav, that's what I'm planning, a few lazy days.
17th-Jun-2005 03:32 am (UTC)
Good news, Maddie! Rest up and get well soon!
17th-Jun-2005 03:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I'm glad to be home, I really didn't want to stay overnight. Those hospital beds will kill you!
17th-Jun-2005 09:33 am (UTC)
Ouch, get well soon :-)
17th-Jun-2005 04:00 pm (UTC)
Thanks!
17th-Jun-2005 09:40 am (UTC)
Glad that's over. Make sure your take enough time to recuperate properly. Once you feel fine, rest three additional days:)
17th-Jun-2005 04:00 pm (UTC)
LOL! I like your advice. I'm taking it easy.

Thanks, so am I. I was miserable in the hospital. There's nothing like being home.
17th-Jun-2005 05:38 pm (UTC)
Glad to hear that all went well and that you're back to sleeping in your own bed again. Take things easy now for a while.
18th-Jun-2005 02:27 am (UTC)
Thanks! And those are my plans exactly.
17th-Jun-2005 05:43 pm (UTC)
Yipes. A golf ball? Wow. My GF didn't have any large ones, just thirty odd little ones :o(
18th-Jun-2005 02:28 am (UTC)
I know, I couldn't believe it! I'm just glad I got them out before the symptoms got bad.
17th-Jun-2005 06:51 pm (UTC)
Good news, Maddie. Now rest a lot. Take your time.
18th-Jun-2005 02:28 am (UTC)
I will. Thanks!

So glad it's over and nothing else this year ok?

as others said, just veg out and sleep, drugs, eat.

You're lucky though in a way, years ago that surgery was a guaranteed 10 hospital stay.

take care love ya.........sis
19th-Jun-2005 12:57 pm (UTC)
Thanks, sis! And I agree, no more surgery! And you're right about the way it used to be - - my mom stayed about that long when she had the same surgery.
19th-Jun-2005 01:59 pm (UTC)
I'm glad the surgery went well and that you are back home. Take it easy and have a great summer filled with lots of relaxation, you deserve a nice quiet summer:)

***hugs gently***

Thanks! I'm definitely hoping for a relaxing summer!

Good! And now you're still resting and following doctor's orders, aren't you???
20th-Jun-2005 11:18 pm (UTC)
Aww, there's my beloved Shroeder! And, um, I *have* been following my doctor's orders, but I *had* to do some laundry today. While J was at work and couldn't catch me of course! But seriously, I'm not overdoing.
