Cruel and Usual Punishment

So, Its been six weeks since Ive been having trouble with my gallbladder. Some days Im fine, some days im throwing up. Im sick of being sick. I feel tired and run down and I have a urinary tract infection. Thankfully my job has been so understanding and Ive been managing to work 25 hours a week. I meet with the surgeon about getting my gallbladder removed on October 6. Im looking forward to hearing what he has to say and hopeful that I will feel much better once it is removed. 
I think the problem itself isn't that bad its just the its been dragging on for so long long. Some days I have a lot of pain and it really takes the good out of me. Add in work and my mom being in the hospital I just feel really overwhelmed and tired. 
I have been having tarry stools the last couple of days so tomorrow I am going to see my doctor. Maybe I will feel better after that.

Momma Bear

So, My momma has been in the hospital for 4 weeks today. It been so hard to focus or so much besides worry about her. She has Parkinsons disease and it has been causing so many complications for her over the past 7 years. 
I want to go to Stephenville to see her but about a 6 weeks ago I have a gallstones attack. I am currently waiting for surgery to get my gallbladder removed. I have an appointment with a surgeon on October 6th. So until I get my gallbladder its not a good idea for me to travel anywhere there is no hospital. There is a hospital in Stephenville but they are not equipped to deal with me. 
So I am here in Calgary waiting it out somedays I feel fine some days I am nauseous and in pain. 
I am nervous about the surgery but I am excited to get back to normal. I am sick of being sick!
Thank you so much for reading my blog and keep us in your prayers!
