It is a little frustrating how badly this Tula fabric photographs. Anyway....
DH is here and his gall bladder is there. I have to keep reminding him that the medical term for "having your gall bladder out" is cholecystectomy- because it sounds way cooler and way better than "having your gall bladder out".
He is fine, he is asleep, he feels a lot worse than he thought he would- it's his first non-limb, non-orthopaedic surgery. And it was only a laproscopic procedure- I'm glad he didn't have to have "real" surgery!
I am NOT happy with the way modern medicine operates though. We reported at 6:30 AM to wait in the hospital lobby until 8:15. At 9 AM they "took him down" for surgery, but when I finally checked in at the surgery waiting room at 10:30, he was still not in the OR. I got to see him when he got back to a room from recovery around 2 PM. In the room he was left on the gurney rather than having a real bed- and the gurney was too short so his feet and lower legs were hanging off the end. We left way before *I* thought we should, but he was discharged and so uncomfortable all he wanted was home and his own bed. The MEDICAL care was fine- the "Patient" care left a WHOLE LOT to be desired!
Up top you can see that I got a little progress done on the dragonflies. I am actually up to working on the last one! I also read about 150 pages of a good Anne Perry book, A Breach of Promise. I prefer her Charlotte and Thomas Pitt books but am learning to like the William Monk ones. And, having been up before 5 AM- for what turned out to be an 11AM surgery!!!!- I also took a nap. So, some little things were accomplished as I waited.
AND..... the Phillies won!!!!
Game #2 tonight- GO, PHILLIES!!!!!
