Goodbye Gallbladder


This is what a gallbladder looks like. Now add some stones and that is what my gallbladder looks like. I go for surgery in the morning. Tomorrow night I will no longer have a gallbladder! Oh boy am I nervous. However, I am very happy that I will not be having any more attacks and horrible abdominal pain! Wish me luck... Wish Rhett luck... Wish Lucy luck...Wish my mom luck!

Good luck. Dave just had his out about 6 months ago. He is so happy the pain is gone as well. He did have some narly side effects though that no one told him about, so if you want to know feel free to ask. It is a quick painless surgery.
