Had six (count ‘em – SIX) gallstones out yesterday. The gallbladder is definitely infected, but it’s just a question of whether they’ll be able to take it out today or tomorrow (which is what I’m hoping for) or whether I’ll have to come back in a few weeks (boooo).
Interesting point of pride/embarrassment: I am apparently, out of thr 5,000 gallstone removals my doctor had preformed, the only one to REACH UP UNDER SEDATION AND PULL THE TUBE OUT OF MY THROAT. I have no memory of this (fortunately) but I had to be put totally under, something they rarely need to do for gallstone removal. I apparently REALLY don’t like things down my throat.
There goes my career as a deep-throat artist.
