Good So Far
To those who commented on LJ, thanks for your words. Your thoughts and prayers mean a lot 🙂 Now, if you have a weak stomach, you probably ought to think on not reading this.
Dad went into surgery this afternoon as I was out gathering overnight-supplies and running other general errands. Rushed to finish everything up as quickly as possible so I could meet back up with Mom. So we sat. And sat. And munched the little bit of protein I brought up. And sat. TV. Sat. Wait. The surgery lasted nearly four hours, which is pretty freaking insane for a laproscopic procedure. But well, the doc did say it was quite possibly the worst gallbladder he had ever seen. Full of rocks, pus, infection, nasty, and all sorts of fun… which burst as they were pulling it through one of the incisions. So they spent a good hour, hour and a half, flushing out the infected-explosion.
But he came out and went back to his regular room on second floor. He’s looking good, in a lot of ways. All should be clear, but there is still the chance that they didn’t get everything all flushed, so they’re probably going to keep him til Sunday so they can closely monitor him and drop the big-shit antibiotics.
And nowww… I think I’m going to get some solid food, a nice stiff drink to settle my nerves, and start looking forward to a good night’s sleep.
