  • So another late night trip to our local emergency room to pump her full of fluids after a panicked call to her doctor last Tuesday. A follow up at his far away office on Thursday led him to readmit her to the hospital in Rockford for further tests. I stayed in the same motel for two nights until they found what was causing the problem. She is on the schedule tomorrow morning, Monday, for gall bladder surgery. It seems they could finally say, "Je accuse'" to the culprit. It had been cooking in the background until all the other problems had been solved. Then it flared up and has become inflamed. They are continuing to give her antibodies in fluids to calm the inflammation before performing the surgery.

    The surgeon came in and explained in detail the entire procedure which put both of our minds at ease. He seems highly competent and has a wonderful bedside manner. He went into great detail explaining that she would have to give up her strenuous house cleaning job, but could return to her other Mc job after ten days 0f rest. She accepted his reasoning.

    I came home Saturday afternoon to restock up on clothes and feed the cats. I will leave about 4 am tomorrow to make the drive to the hospital. Until then I am enjoying the Sunday paper and the quiet.

    Best case scenario I will bring her home the following day.

    Just another day in paradise... Papa
