Right now, we should be in Las Vegas, sipping stupid drinks and wandering around seieing what there is to see. I should be mentlly preparing to meet a potential client (sorry, T...) We should be looking forward to seeing Terry Fator tonight.

Instead, the Spouse Thingy carted me off to the ER between 5:30-6 a.m. on Wednesday, and by noonish a fairly hot (female, but hey I know hot when I see it) was poking holes in my belly to yank out a nasty looking (so I'm told, I did notsee it) gall baldder. So yesterday, the day we were supposed to leave, I lounged in bed enjoying dialudin (sp? no idea how it s spelled byt my typing sucks right now so I guess it doesn't matter0 and Vicodin, hile I ignored the water-based cream of wheat and pureed vegetble soup they tried to feed me.

They let me leave yesterday afternoom and I was modtly pa free when I left, but the ride hoem wiped me out and I made the mistake of trying to lie flat in bed when we got home, which was inatanseou OW, necessitating the Spouse THingy doping me up with Vicodin the rest of the day. Today is much better, only one dose of pain meds so far, so I expect tomorrow to be a whole lot better.

We'll shoot for Vegas again next yearm maybe in January or Febraury. Danm glad I bought trip insurance...we might lose out ona few hundred bucks but tyat's beter than $1500...

Sorry to hear about your gall bladder problem! At least this happened while you were at home. Getting sick on a trip would have been even worse. Cause then you would have been out the $1500 too. ;-)

Hope you feel better soon. BTW, it's pretty funny that Max wrote about this before you did!

Rotten luck, Thumper, but at least the offending gall bladder is history. And judging by your typing, you must be having a reeeeeally good time on Vicodin! :D

Ouch and hope you feel better soon.

Glad you're home, and you WILL feel better: hope that happens REAL soon!

p.s.: all of us who have had to take pain medication (most recently for a broken foot, in my case) understand about the "typo's". The whole message came through loud and clear!

Get better soonest Miss Thumper. I understood your typing purrfectly.

Grrreta said...

I'm so sorry you missed your trip. Thankfully you got trip insurance. Your typos tell me you are getting some really good pain meds. I hope you feel better soon.

Marti said...

Feel better and best wishes.

Michelle C said...

Get well soon from your faithful lurker. =)

kenju said...

My goodness!! You are the second blogger I know who had to have an emergency gallbladder removal this week!! I hope it doesn't mean there'll be a run on them!

Hope you feel better by now.

RANGER said...

I understood your LOLcat typing purrfectly. Sorry abut the gall bladder. Uh, don't eat - never mind. Experience will let you know what not to eat.

Roses said...

1) Feel better soon.

2) Quick! Step on a scale! (How much does a gall bladder weigh?)

Angel and Kirby said...

Sorry you missed your trip, but glad you are OK

Angela said...

Whew! Glad you're OK and I hope you heal up soon!

Thumper said...

Holy carp...with all the fluids they pumped in me I came home 10 pounds heavier...

Mila said...

Get well soon, Funny Lady.

I sympathise with the drugginess. I had oxy after my appendix was out. All I could do was watch tv and read Agatha Christie's til I convinced them to switch me to Darvon. (Propoxyphen APAP) You hurt a bit more, but you have your brain back.

Good luck :)

ps: I know what you mean about the fluids! It's the only time I've ever had naturally rosy cheeks and red lips. XD

Geekwif said...

Dang, that stinks! Hope you're feeling better very soon!

yellojkt said...

So sorry to hear about your gall bladder. At least you got some good drugs out of it.

Linda said...

Sending wishes that you are feeling better soon. Been there, done that with the gallbladder. I made the mistake of laying down in the bed too. Hubby had to get me up. I slept in the recliner for a week. Take it easy and let the body heal and use pain meds if needed.

bless you, bless you! hope you heal completely and quickly. glad you at least got some enjoyment outta your (unplanned) trip, in the form of good drugs;-D

I think the typo's are definitely forgivable and understandable considering. It makes it real; although it seems like you are asking for a spell check for the pain medication you were given... Dilaudid is the proper spelling for your favourite one.
Hope you recover quickly!
