As some of you know Amber has had pain in her left side and chest area for over a year. It use to be just on and off and we really didn't think too much about it. About a year ago she really started complaining about the pain and it was pretty constant. It has taken us awhile due to switching doctors, insurance referrals, finding doctors that are in our network and finally getting a diagnosis as to what was causing all this pain. After numerous test the GI doctor discovered that her gallbladder doesn't work and it should come out. Well Tuesday, 12/30, was the big day. We took her to the hospital in the morning, it was a same day surgery and we were back home around 4pm. Everything went VERY well. The doctor did tell us that her gallbladder was severely scarred due to the all the inflammation. We were able to go in the recovery area about an hour after surgery. She was awake and had three requests. She wanted her retainer, contacts and her cell phone. We gave her the retainer and contacts, but felt she needed to rest and not text. However, once we were in the car smoke was coming from her fingers as she was texting all her friends to let them know she was on her way home. She is doing great, still sore, but today she was able to play guitar hero.
Leaving for the hospital.
Waiting and texting before her surgery.
One of her BFF's made this. It was on the door when we got home.
