    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I woke up Wednesday morning in great pain and went to the hospital emergency room. They determined that it was my gallbladder, and that it needed to be removed immediately. They performed emergency surgery on Wednesday and i returned home on Thursday. I'm now recuperating, taking pain medication, but this pain is nothing like that I had on Wednesday morning. The surgical wounds are tender, i'm weak, but overall doing well.

    This was all shocking to me, I'd not had pain like this before or gallbladder issues (that I knew anything about), and was alarmed to be told that I had to have surgery that very minute / day. The doctors said that if I didn't have the surgery, it could cost me my life. They removed 6 stones with my gallbladder. Everything seems to have gone well, as i'm here telling the story.

    Just want yall to know why i've not been around as much, and will probably be kinda quiet over the next few days.

    Thank you all for maintaining our peace so nicely, keeping our home in order.

    I Love You All.

    :heart:

    Destee. Gall stones usually aren't fatal. Maybe you should seek a 2nd opinion of that?
