Happy Valentines Day!!!

So much has happened this past two weeks...first of all, these are pictures from the Valentines Dance we went to. Had a great time, but for the past 10 days my gall bladder has been giving me fits. I made 2 trips to the Emergency Room with it before they decided to take it out.

They said they would take it out Friday or Monday......well, we had been looking forward to going to this dance for days, so I opted for this past Monday morning removal of "de gallbladder". I was to go to Same Day Surgery on Monday AM and have it taken out and supposed to be going home Monday afternoon.

After we got to the dance I was having so much fun, I thought,'I might as well have a few beers,'...so I did. Needless to say I ended up back in the ER the next morning! The Dr gave me a pain shot, and sent me home since I was all set up for surgery in the AM Monday. But when they took it out, 'de gallbladder' was all inflamed so I had to stay overnight! :((... But I am happy to say its out, I am home and feeling pretty good and if you ever do have to get your gallbladder out..dont sweat it. If they can take it out through those 4 little holes its almost painless! Piece of cake!

The top pic is Larry and Janice and I, this second one is Janice and her brother who is recently divorced.
Sharon and Larry
This is my Aunt Brenda who took such good care of me when I had my open heart surgery. She is sitting on Janices brothers lap. We had a great time and a lot of laughs.Today I got a heart full of chocolate candy from Larry and he is giving me my Valentines gift tomorrow!!! He is really spoiling me, isnt he???? And I love it!

Happy Valentines Day to all my friends...may you all have a wonderful Day .

Hope you are feeling a lot better. Sounds like you have a good guy there. My hubby surprised me this morning with two boxes of candy and little stuffed bear and a pot of tulips. He laughed cause he was trying to get me to go to be last night so he could get the stuff out of the car.LOL

YAY for Larry! I'm so SO glad you 2 found each other...

I had my gallbladder taken out 100 years ago, and was full of gangarene - I have a large, lovely scar & blowhole.

I hate to ask this...but .... what four little holes are we referring to? I stopped and had to think...real hard. *sigh* I'm so clueless.

I hope you're feeling better and so sorry you had to go through all of that...but on the up side, this looked like it was so much fun!!! Did you enjoy yourself?

You have a free-spirit which is what I admire most about you!
