    Hi everyone..

    Just a little note and check in to say I'm still alive and that sweet baby William is doing very well.. Hard to believe he is 6 weeks already!

    Unfortunately Mommy is not doing so good. Seems due to giving birth to my boy I have had gall bladder issues and I have been very very sick. I have to get the gall bladder taken out but I had to get another procedure done first before that surgery. That procedure was done last Thursday. It had some complications and put me in hospital for a bit. I am home again, however I have to get the procedure done again later this week as they couldn't complete it properly. Hopefully it will work this time. I really hate hospital stays!!!

    Keep your fingers crossed all goes well. I just don't have much energy these days due to the illness, not to mention William is making Mommy work very hard LOL.... I will post photos of the little fella again soon.

    Cheers

    Oh no! It's hard enough to have a little one in the house without being ill yourself.

    Best wishes for a successful procedure and a quick return to good health

    I'm so sorry things are off to a rough start, but you'll get through this and feel better soon. My DD also had gallbladder problems and had it out a few months after the baby. It was done laproscopicly and she had a quick recovery. Get some rest whenever you can!

    You poor thing. Get yourself fixed up and you'll be as good as new. Sweet William will be glad to have you back at 100%. He's little, so try not to feel guilty. He won't remember. Just focus on getting yourself better.

    I hope you feel better soon. My sister had her gall bladder removed when she was in her mid-20s. She had been having so much pain in her stomach since she was 15, and every doctor she went to said it was nothing!! She was even told she was imaginig it!! Well, she finally went to a doctor who decided that based on how she described her symptoms her gall bladder neeed to be checked out -- IMMEDIATELY!! Guess what? That was exactly what was causing all the trouble!!!!! The poor thing had been in so much misery for so many years -- in and out of doctor's offices, emergency rooms, being told she was making it all up, etc. She is so-o-o-o much better now. 8-)

    Here's some advice I got from a friend (she had 6 kids so I figure she's an expert): Forget housework (it will be there when you feel better and he is 21, believe me) and try to sleep when he sleeps.

    Sorry to hear that things have been a little rough. Hopefully your doctors can get everything sorted out and you start feeling better real soon. Be sure to take care of yourself, baby William needs his Mommy to be in tiptop condition.

    It isn't unusual to have gall bladder issues after childbirth, reassuring maybe but not very helpful. I wish you and the baby the very best and pray for your quick and total restoration to good health!!
