ANGELA HEALTH STATUS ALERT

Angela's been sick since Sunday.  I took her to the on-call doctor on Monday, with complaints of intense nausea, and a heart rate that had dropped below 60 beats per minute, but he didn't find anything wrong and basically shrugged her off.

Her heart rate improved a bit, but she continued to get sicker and more nauseated all week.  It became more and more apparent that she was having a major gall bladder attack.  (We've known Angela's gall bladder was bad and needed to come out for a year now.)

Today, we found out that her own doctor was on call, and took her back in.  He immediately sent her to get an ultrasound and some other tests done.  Sure enough, her gall bladder's in bad shape, AND has become infected.

She has now been checked into the hospital, and is on antibiotics.  They plan to remove the gall bladder at 8am Sunday morning.

More news as it develops.  Stay tuned to this network...

Good thoughts on the way. Perhaps they'll let you make the gall bladder into a paperweight, or something...
