My Poor Baby!

Poor Cara!  When she was here, she was complaining about abdominal pain.  We got her Maalox, and she felt better.

Until 4 am this morning, that is.  Tony had to take her to the ER, and it turns out she has gall stones.  She's having surgery this afternoon to remove that pesky gallbladder (what is a gall bladder FOR, anyways?)

I am feeling terrible bc I am way over here on the West Coast and can't be her nurse as she recovers.  I'm actually a terrible nurse (except to my children), so maybe she will be better off with Fred taking care of her.  But still...

Oh Cara, hope you are way better way soon. Sorry for you too L, hard to have your kids so far away.

She got through the surgery fine (a BIG gallstone ick) Hopefully she is going home today.

Thank goodness she had her brother there! Best sib EVER

well, it took 4 days, but i finally got to go home very late thursday night! it wasnt quite as easy as the pic made it look as the gb had ruptured (dont put off seeing your doc when you have had pain for a month!) so i have 5 incisions, not the usual 3. that's also why they didnt kick me out the same day!
