Some people have off today, but not me. I could take it off if I wanted to, but it's quiet at work with many off so it's kind of nice.

Today I'm thinking about my mother in law. She had knee replacement surgery last week and over the weekend she was having problems eating and just felt terrible. What they found is that she is have gallbladder issues and it needs to come out. Yesterday they moved her to a different, nearby hospital and she will be having it removed either today or tomorrow depending on her condition. She is 80 years old and not in the best general shape so this is not something any of us wanted to hear. ...especially her! On a positive note, her knee is doing well and she is able to walk easier than before surgery. She is a nice woman; I'm praying that everything goes well and she can get back to knee replacement recovery.

    Gall bladder can be a pretty harmless procedure...mine was amazing...woke up wondering when they were going to yank it out! :-)

    Hoping for some smooth sailing for your m-i-l!

    My Monday was just a normal crazy day! Glad yours was quiet!

    Best wishes to you MIL! She's already been through a lot already, and more surgery is not ideal, but hopefully she'll feel MUCH better after it is done.

    I hope all goes well for your mother in law. I was one of the lucky ones to have off on Monday. But sometimes it is nice to go in when others are off because it is a quiet day and you can accomplish quite a bit. Have a great day! emoticon

    Argh! Your poor MIL! Surgery right after surgery... that can't be fun. At least healing from gall bladder surgery is pretty fast. I had that done a few years ago - it is laparoscopic so there is minimally invasive. My friend who had a double knee replacement, is very happy with the results once she recouped from that. In short, your MIL will feel much better once these surgeries are healed up.

    Hope they can do the little camera hole surgery on her gall bladder, then her recovery would be much smoother.
