Jolt – Daily Prompt

My husband isn’t doing as well as he should be doing after a laparoscopic gallbladder removal. He had a lot of scar tissue built up around the gallbladder from it being inflamed. The doctor showed us pictures today, it was pretty awesome to see what the doctor sees. He did go back to work last week, but came home cranky and in a lot of pain. He wasn’t actually cranky towards me, just towards the fact that he could not work.

Our debt is mounting and we will be climbing out of this hole for a while. But that is okay in my book as long as my husband’s health is taken care of first. I can rearrange bills and satisfy some with partial payments as I need to.

My health, on the other hand, has taken a jolt from the stress. I have worried about my husband healing properly and what has been causing him the added pain. Maybe my nerves will settle down now that the surgeon has seen him and explained why he is still having pain.

It seems the scar tissue that was built up was supporting an inflamed gallbladder and now the inflammation is on the surrounding areas, including the liver because the surgeon removed the scar tissue. He went from one angry area to another. At least knowing why the pain hasn’t gone away is helping my nerves.

Maybe I can get my Avon estore to take off so I can supplement our lack of income.

    Praying for turn arounds in health and faster recoveries! I understand the cranky feeling when not able to do something because of not healing fast enough. I am also in that situation after my surgery. Get to go see the specialist this week and I have lots of questions for him.
