What the Heck? PART 2

So what else has happened in the last month? Well...

2 visits to the ER
1 visit and numerous emails to and from the Doc
1 visit to Urgent Care
1 very thorough Ultrasound
3 X-rays
4 blood draws
12 pounds lost (I need new pants)
A whole load of questions
and 1 scheduled surgery to take my gall bladder out on the Jan 27th.

oh yeah and 1 case of pink eye (so far...poor Finn)

AND... 1 stressful bridge deadline for a new bridge in Seattle.(poor Brandon)

What is a Gall Bladder you ask? For me it's a painful and irritating annoyance that keeps causing me to have sudden attacks of gut-wrenching pain. I think this is the first time I've been able to use the term "gut-wrenching" literally. In reality the Gall bladder is basically a reserve tank for the bile that flows from the liver to the stomach. The one way in and out of my gall bladder is getting "clogged" by a gravely-sludge that's in there(the start of possible gall stones) and that's causing the horrible attacks I've been having. So hopefully all will be fixed by this surgery. THAT is what has been going on this month.
