So this happened last Wednesday morning…which is why I never got around to posting. 🙂
An unlatched gate went through the front windshield of my car. Thankfully, no one was injured, but my car is a mess. The repair place is estimating that I won’t get my car back until the end of November, so that stinks. Anyway, the good news is that no one was hurt.
This past week has been super busy. I had family and friends in town last weekend for a big work event and we also hosted people at the boutique on Sunday.
Sunday night we had an old west experience at an equestrian center. It was super fun!
My family headed back home on Monday and Monday night I started feeling lousy. By the time I woke up Tuesday morning, I felt horrible. I was sweating, nauseated and in a ton of pain. By the time I got home from taking my daughter to school I was miserable. My husband took the little kids to school and I stayed home with what I thought was the flu. By Tuesday afternoon, I was having back pain, chills and more nausea and I began to wonder if I had gallstones. I ended up driving myself to the Emergency room after I finished voting for an ultrasound that revealed that I do indeed have gallstones.
Anyway…I’m meeting with the surgeon today and will most likely have surgery in the next 24 to 48 hours. I’m hoping that my gallbladder weighs a ton. My goal is to lose 100 pounds by the end of 2018 and if my gallbladder weighs 8 pounds, that would push me over the 100 pound mark.
On a strange related note, yesterday when I was at the emergency room they weighed me. Normally I would have taken off as many clothes, shoes, etc as I possibly could have before stepping on the scale. Yesterday, I didn’t even take off my shoes. Even with my shoes and clothes, I only weighed 189. If I hadn’t been in so much pain, I probably would have done a little jig in the hospital. Hopefully, I’ll be able to report on the weight of my gallbladder next week!
