Update on me:D YAY

Still no period, going in on Wednesday, and Annie has armed me with some great questions, I have printed them out and I am going to ask them all no matter how stupid I feel... Yes I feel dumb asking questions about it even though we are going onto month 8 in April, and I feel like it is all my fault...

which brings me to my next point, for about 2 years I have been getting this pain in my side, which I assumed was just because I was gaining weight and my ribs were resting funny on the fat or an organ or something, so I never asked about it. But my girl friend Ashli pointed out that it could be my gallbladder so I went in and for some reason this doctor is so much easier to talk to! He is hilarious! I told him the fat thing and he said... "you must be Lutheran" I died laughing and said Nope I am Mormon... he paused and asked do they have a lot of guilt.. again I laughed pretty hard and Amy put it perfectly when she said we have the guilt of omission and commissions.. (did I say that right???) He speaks my sarcastic language which makes the appointment fun, even though he ordered lab work ( I am a hard stick) and poked and prodded. Over all I highly recommend Dr. Whittenburg, he is fantastic. Anywho back to the gallbladder, he is fairly certain that that is what it is, so we got me what he calls surgery ready, he updated my chart and made all the needed notes, but he isn't positive and told me he didn't want to get my hopes up, again it cracked me up! Anyway I have to laugh when I think about it because right now we are in a position where this wouldn't kill us financially, we set up an HSA through Costco, and still have almost 900$ in it, so what our insurance doesn't cover will be close to covered with the account, and I could schedule it and not wait for it to become an emergency, which means I could get my mom to come out, so I could have help while Brian is at work and school. I know Amy would be overly willing to help (hey ame I am snapping... where is my drink) but I don't want to add to her burdens, she carries a hefty load! Not that my mom doesn't but yeah... there is nothing like a mom when you are nervous! And my mom is just wonderfully fabulous! But wouldn't it just be my luck that I wouldn't have to have it out... and then two years from now when its the worst possible timing it has to come out... Anyway we shall see what becomes of all this on Monday, either way the doctors will be rich from my co-pays!

Side note both Brian and I were laying in bed I was doing some puzzles ( I love fillin's but I can't find the fill in only books, let me know if you find one:D) and I had the over head light on because I have yet to put up our bedside lights, and he talked talked talked for like an hour then looked at me and said hey babe I have to go to sleep, which cracked me up, I looked at him and said well then stop talking... and I proceeded to get the giggles for about 30 minutes... he cracks me up, that man can sleep anywhere under any light, but in bed it has to be dark... whatever:D

You do make me laugh with that bedtime story I was a little nervous to read on after "Brian and I were laying in bed"...yikes. =) Love you!

Oh, thank goodness you found someone you feel comfortable with. I don't wish you ill, but I hope it is your galbladder. That would be something you could fix and it would finally be over, right? Love you!

May sound weird, but I hope that they figure out it is your gallbladder (rather than not knowing)and you are able to get it out before you HAVE to get it out. BELIEVE me, you don't wanna wait til then. Ya, pretty much some of the worst pain ever! I had to have mine removed unexpectedly. ick. Anywho, your post cracked me up with your story of being in bed with the hubs. You can always make me smile. I'll keep you in my prayers :)

Hey Lady. I am so glad that you spoke to your Doctor. I'm also very glad that they found a good follicle. I'm hoping and praying that all goes well for you and that you will soon have a visit from mother nature. :) Hahahahaha that sounds funny. Love you girl.
