Steve has to have his gall bladder removed

The ultrasound revealed that he has heaps of gallstones in his gall bladder so the doctor thought it best and easier to remove the whole thing

We have to cut out on a lot of fried or deep fried foods too...which doesn't bother me as we never used to deep fry foods till we bought our deep fryer....so back to oven chips for us

We stopped off at the chemist and I got some tablets that the doctor suggested Steve have if he gets the pain again before his operation, which will be day surgery we think, it is Outpatient.

The hospital will be phoning us with a day and date.

So Steve is home now and we are just relaxing and having some lunch, then I think a little nap for the both of us later

Thanks again everyone
I'm glad things have worked out, the worst part is not knowing. Take care, both of you!

I'm trying to convince my brain that it wants to go to sleep.

Heat the coconut in the oven. It forces the meat of the nut away from the husk and is easier to remove. Just make sure you have punched those holes in the top or the nut may explode.

We had a nap on the recliners this afternoon, all rugged up, it was nice, although I thin it has made us even more tired now

Early night for us I think, I am sure we wil be feel refreshed and a lot better in the morning

Hope everyone is having a lovely day/night

I am in a quandry. Son #3 is out of state at a conference and is flying home today. When he lands, hewill be coming here to pick up the paddle and bowl for his wife's KA. The problem is I don't know what time and I am supposed to go into Boston for preop blood work. I am going to cancel and set it up for Monday or later today down at the health clinic here in Eastie. It all depends what time he arrives. And I have no way of contacting him. This really screws up my day and plans.

Leave the bowl and paddle on the counter with a note telling him you are sorry you missed him, but you had a better offer with a guy with more money, so you have run off for the blood test...

Seems like I recall a movie referring to 1700's European ships returning from the tropics carrying a cargo of breadfruit trees and copra - maybe Mutiny on the Bounty. I'll have to check with Capt. Bligh.
