Where have I been?????

That's a question I've heard for a bit lately from friends and fellow mommies on Mommies 'N Babies. My answer....

I've been in bed.

I've had a hard almost week, I've been dealing with gallbladder symptoms yet again. Today is the first day in almost a week I've felt somewhat normal. I'm so thankful for that.

I discovered I had gallbladder disease in 2000. After being home for almost a week with what me and my parents thought was "Gastro", it finally became too painful to just sit at home and do nothing. I ended up going to the Urgent Care center and they discovered I had gallstones.

I stayed in the hospital for almost a week, with Jaundice and a blocked bile duct. I didn't have my gallbladder removed, they were able to go in and take out the stones without removing my gallbladder.

Every once in a while I get bursts of pain if I eat the wrong things etc. Never have I had a real 'attack' until this year. It wasn't painful enough to go into the ER but it was and still is quite worrisome.

No insurance = no doctor to just go to and see. It seems to be subsiding today, which is great, I was hoping it was just going to pass and it seems that it may have.

I know eventually i'll have to have my gallbladder taken out, but hopefully that's not for a while, I hate doctor's hate hospitals and definetly don't want surgery.

So that's my update, i'm still taking it easy, I just wanted to update my blog.

Be on the lookout for some upcoming reviews and giveaways that will be on there way once I'm feeling a little more 'normal'.

Take care everyone!!!!
