Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

When You Are Going Through Hell...Keep Going

This week we had seven serious business meetings arranged.


Seven potential accounts for our little company.

We were talking about after landing this little coup, taking some time off
and planning a road trip.



Everything organized, prepped, ready to go...

and then...

Drama, Pain, Emergency,


Hospital.


Monday night 7 hours in emergency waiting for pain medication and to see a doctor.

Finally....in the wee small hours of Tuesday morning, blessed morphine, one specialist, a surgeon and then admission.

Gallbladder attack.  Not me, husband.


So we are now playing the waiting game.

He is still in the hospital. The plan is to try and calm his gallbladder to ease into laparoscopic surgery in about six weeks.  But this GB is not so easily appeased it seems, and it looks like we might be headed to emergency surgery over the next couple of days.

Want to make God laugh?  Tell Him your plans!

    1. Tomorrow should bring decisions Karena. Will postpone the getaway plans until I have him home in my arms. Thank you for your concern.

  5. After excruciating pain, I had the laporiscopy procedure. Gallbladder problems are difficult. My hubby because of other problems, went through the full-blown surgery. His recovery took a little longer than mine, but he was fine.

    I hope the doctors can relieve your husband's pain, and that it can be taken care of quickly.

    Take care..

    1. Thanks Sock'em...that's the quandry we are in at the moment. Doc says if he operates now, it's likely the operation will have to be the full-on version which makes recovery longer...It's sort of a pay me now or pay me later situation to me. Back off to the hospital (or funny farm as hubby calls it) now to see what unfolds.

  9. Gall bladder attacks are yucky (to put it mildly). I've had a few that were fairly minor. I would hate to have a really bad one. Though I've heard about them, even from doctors, and they are NOT FUN!

    Hope hubby is feeling better, soon. And you, too!

    Blessings and Bear hugs.
