Hiatus R Us

OK. Where were we?

I took a few days of sick leave for gall bladder surgery. Easy surgery, thankfully. Day surgery, actually. In the past, gall bladder operations were a stem-to-stern ordeal which required days of recovery in the hospital. Now, the doc sends you home the same day with some sweet pain killers and good wishes.

Gallstones can bulk up to the size of marbles, so I'm told. And some folks would collect enough spheres to make a necklace. Why I could not say. But that's all over. Homeland Security has declared gallstones to be a bio-hazard and ended that fun. About time.

This will be a mercifully short post. I'm milking my recovery for every minute I can.

"Honey, could I have another cup of coffee?"

Glad you're home, George! Talked with Annie who kept us apprised of your situation. You'll be back to pizza and beer in no time, minus the heartburn!
