rolleyes   rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes Went to see my surgen today.I will have to go get my gallbladder out next week.Had a hida-scan last week(monday)it works at 0%.Then had a ultra sound on Thursday its full of sludge(what ever that is).My DR. said that he would just like to leave it alone but since it went septic when I was in the hospital  at the first of the year(JAN.TO APRIL)he is worryed that it might happen again.Unfortunately because of the damage to all of my muscles in that area he will have to do open surgery and not the scope one(the one with the little half inch surgery scars).Some of you are wondering why he did not remove it at the begining of the year(I asked him that in May).DR. O. sayed that if he would have had to do one more surgery on me I would not have survived as it was he told my family that I was not going to make it and that at the most I only had 10% chance.I guess its time to stop rambaling on and go to bed.Hope that some of you will pray for me next Thursday.GOOD NIGHT rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes
Lost half of my small intestine.Ilieostomy for 5 months then reverst,Nerve damage to right leg,part of my right hip bone removed,Cronic pain,hernia,infection in my back called discites,and depression.Mother to 9 kids 7 boys 2 girls and 1 stepson.4 grandsons,9 grandaughters.4 of my grandkids I inherited from my twin sister who passed away 6 1/2 years ago from a blood clot after surgery.God has given me my life back after I almost lost it.Even though its a painful and sometimes hard road to walk I take it one step at a time and give thanks to god for every step I take.

mom9mom - I WILL pray for you; prayer works wonders, definitely.  I'm sorry you have to go through so much, and that you have to have the more in-depth surgery.  My prayers will be for a safe surgery, a quick and comfortable recovery period and just a peaceful mind through all of this stuff.  Let me know if there is anything else more specific.  --Tina

Mom9,

It sounds like they will get it right this time. Who told you that 10% thing?

I believe you will be fine and I hope you take the best care of yourself
mentally and physically before the surgery.

You will be in my prayers. I need to learn that skill. : - )

Pamela it was the surgen that op. on me in jan. and feb.april,june,and oct.It is not that I only have 10% chance on this surgery.In feb. the surgen had to go back in to remove 1/2 of my small bowel because it was full of little holes and fecal matter lecked in to my abdominal cavity.I have seen this on the medical chanal and that is exactaly what thay said on the show.This kind of injury only has a 10 % survival rate because of infection(I had alot of those)The man on t.v. died.I know that I will be O.K. God and my twin sister sent me back the first part of the year.I know that I belong here.I am just so very happy to have everyones prayers and I want to thank everyone in advance.Debbie
