Please Keep A Good Thought For J.

She is having ‘minor’ surgery, this morning.  Having her gall bladder and a stone-blockage removed.

The scariest part is she’s felt bad for over a year, now.  Doctors ‘discovered’ the gall bladder problem during an MRI on her unrelated back issues.

Last November!  Grrr…

And it’s taken this long for the governmental-medical-complex to get ‘approval’ for her surgery! (She’s a Medicaid recipient!)

Did someone say death panels for old people don’t exist?

The good thing is her surgeon has high marks for success, and this is one-day outpatient surgery.  Not the major hospital visit of 50 years ago.  (Arthroscopic, ya know!)

I’ll post later as to the results.



(And, now for something completely different – as promised)
I would ask all of you bloggers out there to at least make the effort to post a link to


Even ONE of these heroes making this choice is unacceptable! (Day #13 of 22)

  1. Lord, guide the surgeon’s hands, and help her to heal & recover quickly. Thank you in Jesus’ name, and amen!

  2. Fingers crossed, good karma waves beaming to the South East part of the valley.
    That she had to wait this long for definitive treatment is disgusting.

    Tell her to definitely keep that ice bag they will probably have on her belly. Use it for a good week.
    Since it’s going to be hotter than the hinges on the gates of hell this weekend anyway, might as well be as comfy as possible.
