Shroom'in It...(in hiding)

Welp, I have been Shroom'in..in hide out mode sorta I guess you could say. Just have not gotten on the computer lately....It seems family, cooking and cleaning is more of a priority right now. here lately just to make a doll takes so much energy..I feel creatively zapped! I love making dolls too, don't get me wrong. Just the kids are growing so fast, everyday really is amazing with Sophia She is just the cutest little her she can be. Christopher and I have really had an open line of communication too and Gabby is a chatter bug of course who wants to tell me about her friends and the boy who likes her ( I think she may like him too...) All of this just makes me want to freeze time. I can't even comprhend that one day they will leave the nest.

On a down note...I have been having pain in my Upper right Quadrant for nearly a year and a half. I knew it was gallbladder pains. I tried some natural flushes with no success. I changed my diet (No dairy, fried foods or refined carbs..~~or very limited amounts anyway..) but was still having pain. So, made an appt and the DR had me do an ultrasound. They found no stones..so I had a HIDA scan done. (they basiclly inject you with radioactive dye and a chemical that your brain secretes to make your gallbladder function) all the while lying flat on your back in a scan machine for nearly 2 hours.

When I got the results back they said MY GALLBLADDER WAS ONLY Functioning at 24%. Went to the Surgeon today..made an appt..in short my gallbladder is coming out next week. I hope I get much needed releif. my last gallbladder attack this week lasted 26 hours with pain so bad I just about went to the ER. And I had very little fat in my diet the day before..


well..thanks for letting me ramble...
