Hello my blogging friends - see this laughing horse?
I love to laugh, but I can't do it yet - at least not in this heartfelt way. It still hurts too much.
So, I had my surgery last Friday - I arrived at the hospital at 1:30pm and shortly after 7:00pm I was already home, in my own bed. Yep, they kick you out pretty quickly in the States. Honestly, I much more prefer it this way. They took out the gallbladder including five stones, one of them really big, about 2cm, it's shiny black and looks like licorice. After the surgery the surgeon said to the Geek that I must have been sick for at least a year, if not even longer. In hindsight, it makes sense - the tiredness and fatigue, the phases of depressive mood, the low energy etc. I had simply thought it's because of menopause. Hm, obviously not.
He (the surgeon) promised that I will be like a new person when everything will be healed. I can't wait.
I still have a long way to go, and at the moment the painkillers are my best friends. I take it one baby step at a time, and during that time I won't be in blogland too much. I hope you understand.
I was so touched by all your good wishes, prayers and healing thoughts. I am convinced that they helped. You are such wonderful people and I feel blessed and grateful to have met you in this wonderland of blogosphere.
You're simply the best!
