The surgery is over and I am healing. I got really nervous the day before and I almost cancelled. My husband talked me through my fears and told me I needed to get this done before something really bad happened.
It went a lot faster and a lot easier then I expected. My husband and I headed to the hospital bright and early in the morning on a Thursday morning. My sister stayed at my house with my two littlest and my older two spent the night with my mom. We were there for a total of five hours, the first hour being lab work and prep, about an hour and a half for the surgery and the rest of the time in recovery. After that they sent me one my way. I went straight to bed when we got home and slept for four hours.
The next couple of days I was pretty sore and was happy to have my husband here to handle the kids and cleaning ( He took Thursday and Friday off that way he would have four days to be with me before he went back to work ). I took it easy, rested as needed and did the few things I felt up to doing. When he went back to work Monday, I spent that day with my mom and Tuesday I decided I was ready to get back into being a stay at home mom.
My older two kids were really helpful, while some things still made me pretty sore ( like holding Amelia and other lifting ) overall I was doing pretty well. More then anything I was happy that I could finally eat without fear. I was able to go back to eating the foods I like without worrying about pain.
I am so happy that I finally got this taken care of, gall bladder pain is no joke.
