Surgery Update

Ok, I know this is a week late...Aunt Debbie, this is for you!! LOL!! Last Friday morning, Randall and I arrived at Baptist Outpatient Center a little after 8:00. Surgery was scheduled for 10:00. I was called to the back and prepped, then they called Randall back. Brother James got there right before they gave me the "goofy juice." Once they gave it to me, I remember it kicking in, me saying, "Whoa!!!" and that's it. I now have 4 small holes in my belly, and my gallbladder is gone!! They did find some fatty tissue on my liver that they removed for a biopsy, and I should get results on Wednesday when I go back to the dr. for my follow-up appointment. Momma googled it and found out that complications from a high-risk pregnancy, obesity, or diabetes could cause it...well, we all know for sure that I've had #1!! I am doing well (still not eating a whole lote) and still CRAVING MEXICAN!!

Surgery Date is Scheduled

Next Friday, October 8, I have to report to admissions at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock at 5:30 for my gallbladder surgery. Surgery is scheduled for 7:30. The plan is to have outpatient surgery to remove it and come home later that day. The kids are going to spend the night with Gramps and Grammy so Grammy can take them to school/babysitter's on Friday. I'm not nervous (yet), but I am praying for God to guide the surgeon's hands to take care of my problem. I am hoping to only miss Friday at work and be back to teaching my 6th graders on Monday!
