While I was sleeping ...

(gorgeous flowers from my sweet friend Beth)

On February 28 I woke up with a severe pain in my right upper abdomen and very nauseated.  The bestie insisted I head to the urgent care.  Thank God she did.  I probably would have waited it out for a lot longer than I should have!!!  I am so thankful so insisted I go and I listened!!!  After being evaluated at the urgent care I was sent to the emergency room.  Many hours and tests later I was sent home drugged up and still in pain.

Long story very short ... lots of testing, lots of meds, lots of pain, frustration, tears and 17 days later I had my gallbladder removed.  I woke up from surgery instantly better.  The stabbing pain and nausea were gone.  I could not believe how quickly I felt 1000% better!!!  Of course it was all replaced by sore stomach muscles and a week of recovery ahead but I was thrilled.  Beyond thrilled.  It was over.

I am now day six into a seven day recovery.  I feel exponentially better each and every morning.   I am still sore but only when I bend over, use the stairs or sit up.  I love how I feel. I had no idea I felt as bad as I did until it was over.  Its absolutely amazing!!!

During the time I was sick March came and almost went.  Spring has sprung in Atlanta!!  Its absolutely gorgeous.  I had lunch yesterday with two girl friends and while I was waiting outside to be picked up I was snapping photos of the blooming flowers.  When Lee arrived she giggled and asked me what I was doing.  When I told her I was taking photos of the beautiful spring flowers she giggled again and responded ... "A lot happened while you were sleeping"!!

Now if it will only rain so we can enjoy the amazing weather without all the dusting of pollen!!!  But I will take whatever we get.  I refuse to complain about anything.  I feel so lucky and blessed to whine!!!

 I say it a lot but I think it bears repeating.  I am one lucky girl.  I have a great husband ... amazing friends ... great healthcare and one fabulous family.  My kids have been rock stars!!!  But most of all I have a clean bill of health!   I will say it again ... I am one lucky girl!!!
