Takin' it Easy

Life always has a way of telling you that you need a little break. And I guess that's what has happened this week. Just wanted to thank you all for the prayers and sweet words on my little "ordeal".
For the last couple of weeks, I have been trying to figure out what is going on with a little tummy situation. What was thought by two separate doctors to be either an ulcer, a blockage, or GERD ended up gall bladder! Yay-- if I was going to have surgery, that was the one to have!
Sunday night, I had another "episode" and ended up at the Metroplex ER again. This time (since I embarrassingly puked in front of the ER staff) they considered my gall bladder as a possibility. Low and behold...we had a winner! 
They loaded me into an ambulance (which was a little over the top for me, but you take what you can get in these kind of situations, right?) and took me to Scott & White Hospital in Temple. I had my surgery Monday morning and spent the night. I was sent home yesterday and have been literally doing N-O-T-H-I-N-G since! 
My parents were so incredible to drive to Killeen in the wee hours of Monday morning to watch the boys and then take them to their house for a few days so I could recuperate. They are bringing them home tomorrow. THANK YOU so much, Mom & Dad. I don't know what we would have done without you in this crazy situation. I am very thankful for all of your help...and it was so nice to come home to a clean house yesterday, too! We appreciate you so much.
Thank you also to all the sweet friends and family who have done so much in these last three days for us-- yummy food, beautiful flowers, and sweet, sweet notes of well wishes were much appreciated. 
Hopefully in a week or so, we'll be operating at 100% again. We do plan to take it easy for the holidays so we can be back in action in 2010. 

Thanks a million, everyone! 
Love, the Dominguez Family

I wondered how all this played out! So glad you're home and recovering! Hey, at least you have nothing else to do except sit at your computer and work! HA! Take care of yourself and we'll see you soon!

I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better. I was worried about you! My card is wonderful - I hope that is not what set you into an gallbladder attack.
