Surgery is over. I am fine, but bitterly disappointed...

I chose having my gall bladder out over seeing my Halos play next month (not enough paid time off to do both). I'm in a fair bit of pain, but I have percocet, and it's helping.

I am deeply disappointed that we had to cancel our mini-vacation to Baltimore to see the Angels.

I appreciate those of you who weighed in on my "decisions, decisions" thread, as well as those who offered their support on facebook.

DU, besides being a great service to the liberal community, is a greatly supportive community, too. (And my thanks to the admins!)

1. Glad it's over. I hope you recovery goes well.

A good friend of mine just had his removed and he felt SO much better in the days following. Hang in there. Here's hoping you get to see your team play sometime soon!!!

Here's also hoping some day we will have the ability to have time off for vacation as well as time off for medical needs without having to choose...

2. I hope your recovery goes smoothly.

If you didn't have the surgery, you may have been too ill to go to Baltimore.

3. Kiddo, I nearly died from not having mine out soon enough, so be glad.

Pancreatitis is NOT your friend, take it from me. You'll be good as new in no time and will have many more chances to play. I'm glad you went for it.

4. Health always come first.

There will be plenty of time to plan other mini-trips.

5. You'll be fine in a couple of days.

Take naps whenever you can.

An evil gall bladder can do wicked things. You made the right decision.
