When will your "gumball" be gone?
...asked little Allie, gently rubbing my shoulders.
I had a very unfortunate experience yesterday/today, when a sharp ache filled my abdominal cavity. Twelve hours of shivers and hot flashes combined with the searing pain prompted me to head to the emergency room at 1:46 this morning.
Diagnosis? A Gallstone has impacted itself in the opening duct of my Gallbladder.
Treatment: Lots of fluids, some constant pain-killers, and no fried or fatty foods.
End result: I missed spending the day with my dear friend Debby Schuh (in town from Buffalo to teach at Sweetpeas,) slept most of the day away, and am sitting here with the dull throb of an aching tummy, re-medicating when the pain gets too strong.
Stupid Gallbladder!
