WOYWW...Bet you didn't expect one this week :-)

This is written by Annie[wipso] on Paula's behalf.

Well girls this is my desk for today....and yes it's very tidy!  As most of you will know I was rushed back into hospital at the weekend with Gall Stones this time!  They had hoped the antibiotics they gave me would reduce the inflammation so they could send me home for 4-6 weeks but alas no, and they had to do emergency surgery for me yesterday.  They have removed my gall bladder using keyhole surgery so I now have 4 more scars on my tummy [yes I am much more like Jane Teddy Doe now!].  
I have just had a visit from the Surgeon and he is happy how the op went.  My gall bladder was inflamed when he took it out as expected.  I have much swelling and pain but have just managed a shower.  I seem to be the ward entertainment....I have an old school friend also in the ward and it's been really good catching up with her.  We plan to stay in touch. They are keeping me in today and reviewing me again tomorrow.  I plan to catch up with all your desks over the weekend when I'm home and RESTING...I have vowed to rest properly when I get home.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this post. Please come back again. hugs, Annie[wipso] on behalf of  Paula x x x

  31. I hope you are felling better. Keep tabs on your body - my daughter had her gall bladder removed & it caused pancreatits - which is very painful. You will be in my thoughts.

  33. Now thats a special WOYWW. I hope you are home soon ..or when you feel its right ...and manage to chill and recover at your own pace. Take care xx

  34. Ach Paula! What're you doing to yourself girl??? Typical you're thinking of us again and not yourself! Got a medical q for you, perhaps the docs told you the answer to this but I'm curious!! The gall bladder stores the bile produced by the liver for digestion of certain food types, it also makes the bile much stronger than when it comes out of the liver.... so what happens to the bile the liver produces now if there's no gall bladder to store it in?? And how well will your digestive system work now?? Stupid, stupid questions I know but I've always had a very inquiring mind and I want to know!!! Hope you're home soon, rest up and keep well.

    Hugs

  39. Oh Paula, I had no idea as I've not posted my WOYWW until just now...an I've quoted your comment about Promarker storage.

    So, many thanks for the inspiration to get the job done, and Please Get Well Soon. The hospital bed table is a quirky piece of inspiration!
