We interrupt this blog for a little thing called "Gall Bladder Surgery."

A little over two weeks ago, I woke up in horrible pain.  Pain so bad that I overcame my cheapness and fear of doctor bills to be driven to the ER.

Turns out, I had gall stones. 

Can I just say OUCH!

So, on March 11th, I had surgery.  A quick in and out of the hospital, four small incisions.  Good pain meds.  I came home later that day.

Until today, I felt okay.  Now, I'm beginning to understand why there's a recovery period of 6-12 days.  The pain is manageable, but I did lose a body part.  So, reluctantly, I have to give my other body parts time to figure out how to compensate.

Would it surprise you to know that I am NOT a stay-in-the-bed kind of gal?
