Gallbladder is out!

Yesterday was surgery day for my gallbladder removal.  My gallbladder has been bothering me for a few months if not longer.  I had lots of gallstones per the ultrasound.  On the ultrasound, it was also constricted like it does when you are eating when it wasn’t supposed to be because I hadn’t eaten for at least 8 hours.  Then was the hyda scan which  is where they inject a nuclear substance through IV and wait for it to get into your system so they can see the things they need to see.  The hyda scan took longer than it should have because my gallbladder was playing hide and seek, it wasn’t showing up within the hour like it should have.  I had to go back for more scans/pictures an hour later and if it hadn’t shown up so slightly at that point I would have had to wait 3 more hours!  Thankfully my gallbladder showed up ever so slightly but good enough to show that it wasn’t cooperating.  When I saw the surgeon 2 days later there was no debate, it was coming out.   Continue reading

Hawaii

Well I survived the trip…hahaha.  I had a great time with my family and celebrating my great uncles 90th birthday.  We went to 7 or 8 beaches, I lost count.   Another one of my must haves when in Hawaii is shave ice, we got shaved ice 5 times, yummy!  No it is not a snow cone…it’s completely different.  It is shaved ice from an ice block, not ice pellets.  Anyway that is your Hawaiian lesson for the day…haha.
