Dr. Update

I visited the doctor again today....

I saw Dr. Glass today and he believes it is my gallbladder. I now have an ultrasound scheduled for next Thursday, the 27th at 9:30. I could have scheduled it earlier, but I can't eat for 6 hrs prior, and I insisted it was in the morning. My first option was a 1:00 appointment, meaning I couldnt eat all day... I said no way!

The ultrasound will check for gall stones. If I do have them he will send me to a surgeon. I will be sent to the surgeon mostly to just meet with him. If I have a gallbladder attack before the baby is born, they can remove it, otherwise I will probably get it removed after Leah is born sometime.... if it is gall stones that is causing my discomfort.

The thought of having surgery is scary... not for the fact that I will be put under and have something removed... but because it will most likely happen while I have a newborn to take care of! I dont handle stress very well anyways, and this just spells drama to me!... but hopefully surgery means more paid time off! :)

So from here on out I am still restricted on my fatty, greasy, spicey food.... no fast food, and nothing fried.... This weekend we are headed to Michigan for my cousin's wedding. I am sure I will not be a fun travel partner... not only will I be cranky during the drive from being uncomfortable... I can't' have any of the usual roadtrip foods! ... I will let you know how it goes!
