Surgery went quite well. It's amazing how quickly everything goes when you go to a hospital on a scheduled appointment. I arrived early for my 8 AM check-in, surgery was at 10 AM, I was out of there by 1:15 PM , and we were home by 2 PM.

I took a long nap this afternoon, awoken only by pain with a reminder to take another oxycodone. Right now, my main discomfort is the gas that they inflated my abdomen with to perform the laporoscopy. It will gradually dissipate over the next 24 hours.

I'm trying to walk around the house as much as possible. I'm very thankful Tom's mother is here to help out with them. Families are amazing things.

Tomorrow morning, I am getting my pesky old gallbladder removed. It's developed a gigantic gallstone which has been bothering me off-and-on for the last few months, and constantly for the last two months. I was trying to hold off on surgery til Amelia was in kindergarten, but my doctor sat me down and told me that if I waited too long for surgery, I might have to have open surgery versus laparoscopic. So I went ahead and got that surgery scheduled.

Tom's mother is currently on the way down from South Dakota to stay with the kids for the next 7-10 days. She'll arrive sometime this evening.  I have to be at the hospital at 8AM for outpatient surgery. I should be home before the evening rush hour. I look forward to spending the next couple of days laying in bed reading junky magazines.

I should be back up to speed before Amelia starts school on the 10th. :)
