My Sister - Update

Christy had laparascopic surgery to have her gall bladder removed. She was getting pretty nervous. We were all being silly & giggling & I think that helped take her mind off it for a little bit. Thank goodness it went well & she did great! She has some aches & pains, but they gave her some pain meds & something for her nausea. They finally brought her back to her room and she was pretty tired and thirsty. She hadn't eaten or drank anything since 2am. They said it was ok for her to have something. She had a popsicle & some chicken broth. My Dad and I decided to leave and let her get some much needed sleep, plus it was getting really late. I just barely got home about 20 minutes ago.

My Dad's going back to the hospital in the morning and once the doctor checks her out, she can be released. YAY!!! She'll be staying with my parents for a few days (plus she gets out of work for a whole week - doctor's orders).

Thank you all for your well wishes & prayers! They are really helping :)
