Not many in my family have had gall bladder removed that I know of. Only appendix but since i still have mine maybe the sanitation in my house isn't the best. Someone said undeveloped countries have no appendectomies. Well, they at least got something the is good. Maybe since doesn't have best hospitalization no one knows what is going on. I just will have to wait my turn and hope I am not one of those who has to wait in ER forever. Did you Alix? Or did they take you right away? Boy, do I have my imagination going.

Thank you so much for your time Alix and tell Ken to stay close. Can you eat soup? Crackers?
Hey ITK, I met with the surgeon some time ago and had Dec 5th booked as my date to have surgery. No ER for me. And I can eat anything I want whenever I want it. Today my work buddies sent me a box of Cookies by George cookies and they are soooo delicious! Ken has taken a few days off to look after me but will go back to work on Monday. The nurse told him he has to do all the cooking and cleaning for 6 weeks! LOL. We know she was only joking though. I'm just limited in how much I'm allowed to lift for the next couple of weeks.

Anyone know where to get palm fronds in Edmonton in December? And I need some tips on how to peel grapes.

Will do! And let me take this opportunity to subtlely point out to everyone that it's been June since I've had any Karma. (People, I can't catch Alix without regular contributions for no reason whatsoever.)

Oh, Alix is ringing her bell again for me....gotta go!

You know...laughing after abdominal surgery hurts. Ken is so BAD for that. He gets me giggling without half trying and then when he sees me trying to hold my guts together as I'm laughing HE starts laughing and well...you can imagine how bad it can be.
