This Week

This week I’ve got several guest bloggers coming by to share stories with you while I’m having my gal bladder removed.

I’m a little nervous, even sad.

We were close.

We did everything together.

I have a high pain tolerance and am prepared to be uncomfortable, bed ridden, and punctured. I’m not concerned about the actual surgery, it’s after  and my poor responses to prescription pain medication that I’m worried about.

Aesthetic, morphine, and any type of pain medication stronger than a Tylenol turns me into a babbling lunatic. BUT… in my head I can tell I’m being a psycho, I just can’t turn my mouth off.

My mouth and body think my actions are hilarious while my brain is begging for control.

Morphine has caused me to tell my mother-in-law that her necklace was beautiful, and then shush her mid-sentence to exclaim loudly that it was windy.

Aesthetic has made me tell my surgeon, after her completing a scope to look at my gal bladder, that she was driving fast (the gurney) and then I loudly told myself and everyone in the room to shut up.

Pain medication makes my lower half feel like cement and my brain and head feel like a hot air balloon floating through the air. I giggle like a teenager and can not be responsible for children, animals, or myself. I spontaneously pass out and have no control over my emotions.

I’m sure there are people out there who would be excited about these symptoms.

Not me.

I like to be in control of my body.


There is one drug that I enjoy and I promote.

My friend Epidural.


Anyway, because I’m the true to life blogger that I am I will still be writing while on meds.

I can’t keep you all from that comedy.

See you in a week and enjoy the guest posters!

      I think I also replied to YOU but it’s not showing up.
      AND yes, unicorns will probably be making an appearance.
      along with zombies.
      Send cake.

        I am! I am! Unicorns?! I love unicorns!! They never visit me. Just evil sprinklers masquerading as snakes.

    So, it’s been a pretty crazy weekend around our home. We’ve have all been staying up late, past 2am and waking up late past 10am. I’m outta of it. Haven’t even had my coffee yet. It’s brewing as I write.

    Which means as I was reading this, I thought you were having going to have your girl bladder removed. Which made me sad for you. It would be hard to go through life w/o a bladder, because how would you hold your pee? Then I was thinking you were probably getting a bladder transplant too. Maybe from a guy, since your gal bladder was going away. Then I decided that might not be bad at all, because guys can usually hold off going to bathroom for a while.

    Then it hit me. OH.

    Hope it goes well…

      SWEET JEBUS.. did I write girl bladder?
      I have to go look now.
      AM I having my girl bladder removed?
      How will I pee?
      Will I have to use my boy bladder?

      • FranceRants
        July 4, 2011 | 3:07 pm

        no, you wrote gal bladder, which my creative brain interpreted as girl bladder, not gallbladder…

    Those side effects sound awful! I wouldn’t like that either. But in a perverse way I’m looking forward to seeing what you share while in that altered state 😉

    Good luck! We’ll hold the fort for you while you’re admiring the bunnies on the nurses’ uniforms.

      And playing with their hair, and pulling at their necklaces, and softly singing to myself… oh LAWD!! Maybe I should vlog it?

    Good luck with the Gall Bladder thing. I had mine out and now I have a great story to tell about it. The drugs afterword were the best.

      Is it common for men to have them removed?
      Did you secretly have a baby?
      you did!
      I’m calling oprah.

    Oh! I didn’t know you were having surgery. I’m so all over the place of late and I also didn’t know you had a bloggy makeover. It looks BEAUTIFUL. Seriously. I love it. It’s so soothing and calm, and perfect for you. How long have I been away? Why does it not feel like I have been? Oops. I stink. Anyway, I hope all goes well and we’ll miss you. Happy healing to you. Sending you strength and love and if you need anything, even all these miles away, tell me!

      Glad you like the design.
      I’ve missed you! Glad you came back around.
      I will be tweeting, just from an altered state.

    I hope the drugs agree with you this time, and at the same time, looking forward to seeing some side effects that could be comical. Good luck!

    First, good luck to you! Hope it goes well. Second, I’ve been a very bad blog reader so far this summer and am just now seeing your new design. It looks awesome! I love it. Excited to see who you have guest posting. 🙂

      Try and write?
      you doubt my abilities.
      If I was a witch I’d put a spell on you for that.
      A love spell..

    Get better soon.

    I, for one, can honestly say that I look forward to the under the influence posts.

    I’m sick that way.

      July 5, 2011 | 8:46 pm

      You aren’t the only one who’s looking forward to the looped out posts…
      I think I’m brewing one right now.

    Best wishes with your surgery. I hear you on the pain medication. I hate the feeling too.

    I’ll be thinking about you!

    Gallbladder removed here! it was June 6 actually. I was so scared of the whole thing and 3 days after the surgery I was back to normal, well, everything but lifting baby. Diet, digestion, recovery all has been back to normal.

    I wish you well and hope it all goes well during and after the recovery.

      I was supposed to have it out on June 13th but it was re-scheduled. I’m on day two and I’m still pretty sore.
      I’m glad that I’ll be back to normal soon.

  21. […] was given some pre-op pain killers, and as I mentioned in a previous post, I do not do well with pain killers. I began to get a little loopy, a little drowsy. My glasses […]
