Ok, thought I would report back for those of you who were concerned.

We just got back from the ER and I do not have a cold, flu or infection. All my symptoms are typical for some people post gallbladder surgery. I wasn't given any instructions about how to eat afterwards. I haven't been eating much and some of the wrong things. I need to eat 6 small meals a day and stick to 3 grams or less of fat per serving. The comfort foods I have been eating are too fatty. This won't last forever (hopefully), but is a healthier way to eat anyway.

I am still anaemic and am losing weight way too fast so they want me try to stick to the diet suggestions they gave.

Whether it is a hospital stay or even just day surgery, BMC always sends me home with complete written instructions, any needed medications or supplies and they read them to me to make sure I understand. The my PCP or NP follows up with me within seven days. I certainly can't complain when it comes to my medical care.

Thanks, Laurie. I'm glad it's nothing serious

I think I'll stuff them into a pillow.
I had saved a whole garbage bag of shoulder pads with the idea of making a comforter.

It all got left behind when I moved, so I'll never know if it would have worked.

Some would have been a reminder of favorite clothes I had.

Pillow stuffing sounds good too.

Thanks for going to the ER, LP.

I hope things improve and you are feeling better soon! Thanks for the update.

I'm thinking I'll be lucky just to load my old electronic equipt into my Jeep today.
Of course, if I get that far I might as well run it down...
It's just so nasty outside, I really don't want to do anything I don't have to.

A bit of that weather just blew through here pac. Snow has been alternating between big flakes few and far between and lots of flakes thick and heavy.

I'm leaving shortly to make a library run and stop at the corner for one ingredient I need for tomorrow's supper. Don't want to wait till then because it's going to be even colder than today. With picking up two books and a video I might not be hanging around here as much. Yeah, right!
