Life has been a bit hectic around here. Since before Christmas, we've kind of been in survival mode between sickness (both kids and myself) and the 'ol gallbladder (mine). I talked about Conrey's headache issue and am happy to say that he has an appt on Feb 2 with an ENT. Hopefully, the ENT will have some insight into this issue. It may mean that he gets a tube put in that ear. It may mean that he's referred elsewhere. All that I care about is resolution.
Dec 8th, I had my first gallbladder attack, which was severe. Since then, I have had 15-20 minor ones (if you can call any minor). Last night, I had another pretty bad one. I ended up back in the ER. Unfortunately, I have to report that I still have the dumb thing in there and am waiting to have a HIDA scan performed. Basically, they radiate me by pumping radioactive dye into my veins and then watch it on a camera as it takes rapid-fire pictures of my digestive system. They will see if/how my gallbladder reacts and then determine if it is time for it to be yanked out or if there are other, less-evasive options for dealing. As of right now, I'm on a no animal fat, no grease, no fat, no spice diet. Sounds fun, right? For lunch, I had a dry, plain, baked potato. For dinner, I had white rice with some soy sauce. DELISH! My day has been blaaaaaaah!
So, that's what's up with us. Thanks to everyone that has been praying. Keep 'em coming! :)
