So, 2 days ago, my back hurt so badly that I woke my husband up at 0500 and told him something was wrong. However, as an ER nurse, I am honor bound to not go to the ER unless I’m dying. At about 0800 I decided I was dying, and onto the ER we went. Turns out, I have gallstones, and I have to have my gallbladder out here soon. The only problem is, I only have gallstones, and since I don’t have an infected gallbladder, I just have to get it done outpatient. Which means I called the general surgeon 2 days ago, have an appointment for a consultation tomorrow, and will probably schedule surgery for Monday. This means I am on a clear liquid and pain meds diet until then. This is a sneaky kind of pain… I feel fine when I’m laying down watching Netflix, but as soon as I go to stand up, I remember why that’s a bad plan because it hurts reeeeeeeal bad.
So, I haven’t painted much, because the combination of pain while standing, and pain meds that make my eyes a little blurry make it difficult. Anyways, we had a Monday miniature this week, it was something I painted several months ago. It was kind of cool to see how far I’ve come.
Hopefully, I can get up in the next couple of days and do something. We’ll see.
