slight setback

So, I've been complaining lately that I haven't been able to blog in a while so today my body hast decided to act up on me. Sunday, I started having stomach pain and by today it was so bad I had to go to the doctor. He said that its a gallstone attack so I am off to the doctor tomorrow to get an ultrasound. 
I've had gallstones since I was 12 years old and I am so lucky that I've only had about half a dozen attacks in my life. The thing is my hematologists don't want to remove my gallbladder unless its absolutely necessary. So as long as I'm only having a few minor attacks here and there I think I will hang on to them. In the meantime I am very uncomfortable and I'm really looking forward to getting this ultrasound so we can see if the stones are blocking something and then we can decide what to do from there. Last time I was given a blood transfusion and antibiotics so in the grand scheme of things not the end of the world.
