Family Update

Because I know that my family follows this blog, I'm am posting here about my mom.

Mom watches my twins for me while I'm at work and yesterday afternoon she took them to the White Castle to get them some lunch, she had two hamburgers and a handful of fries. A few weeks ago she had to have a scan done for a routine check up and they told her that she had gall stones. Boy did she ever.
At 4:30 yesterday she called me at work to tell me that she was going to the ER because she was doubled over in pain. She had several doses of "high octane" pain meds and nothing was helping to relieve the pain. They decided to admit her to the hospital at 10 last night. It was near 12 am before they got her to a room. The did a scan on her this morning and decided to remove her gall bladder.
Around 2:15 this afternoon they took her to surgery to determine whether they could do surgery with the scope or if they needed to actually cut her open and remove it because it was "shredded". Luckily they were able to remove it with the scope and she should be coming home tomorrow around lunch time.
I just wanted to let everyone know that she came through like a champ and when I left the hospital at 8 she was sitting up in the bed and eating a few graham crackers. She should be up and around by the weekend.

  2. She's doing really good. I'll keep you guys posted. We've had a few scares in the last 3 or 4 months and I'm hoping this will be it for a while.
