Who Needs A Gall Bladder Anyway? (Updated)

Tomorrow is the big day for Donna. She is scheduled for surgery at 5:00 AM. I took the day off so I could hang out at the hospital being glad it's not me. Donna should be discharged around lunchtime, after which I will be playing nursemaid. We dicussed things beforehand and it's decided: if Donna is too out of it from the anasthesia or otherwise incapacitated, I will step in and tell them we want to keep the biggest stone they pull out of her.

I already have plans for it, you see.

Updated (4/15/2010 10:19am) Donna is out of surgery and doing well. The surgeon says there were no complications. At this point Donna is not sure if she feels lighter or not. With luck she will be discharged around noontime.

  1. I had my gall bladder out a couple of years ago.

    Had a painful attack Sunday night and went to the ER. Was admitted to the hospital that night with a preliminary diagnosis. The next day spoke with the surgeon who told me I should get it taken out. We scheduled the surgery for the day after that, Tuesday, and I went home on Thursday.

    In Canada that process takes three months.
