Our First Strawberry- no one knows what it tasted like cause this little guy chomped it down after we took the picture.
I went to a surgeon today- she was very sweet.
I have a gall bladder that needs to come out. I have had this problem for awhile (about 7 years) and have been having pain lately and decided no more.
I also have a hernia that I have not taken care of and thought that would have to be taken out as well.
But, good news, the doctor believes all I need to do is take the gall bladder out, which is a laparoscopic procedure and won't take too long for me to recover.
When I was waiting in the waiting room, I noticed a lot of overweight people and didn't think much of it, until a woman who I was making small talk with, asked me if I already got the procedure or if I was getting it?
**My mind quickly recalls that this surgeon does a lot of bariatric surgeries.**
She wanted to know if I was getting the lap band or the bypass.
I quickly told her about the gall bladder problems and we had a nice chat.
She didn't seem to feel bad about asking me the question.
Ya know, when you ask a lady when she is due and it turns out she isn't pregnant?
You feel terrible.
I thought this would be the same.
But, it wasn't.
She told me how she was getting the surgery and we talked about it- she was very excited and I was happy for her.
But man o man, nothing gets you omitting your nighttime snack like a complete stranger asking you if you are getting stomach bypass surgery. :)
The kids are driving me crazy, so that means everyone is well and we are off for another great summer week.
What did you do today?
