Life’s never boring
Took Steph to the ER last night (due to extreme abdominal pain) and she spent the night in observation. Long story short, she has gall stones. Come the second trimester of the pregnancy, she’s probably gonna have surgery to take out the galbladder altogether. Apparently she’s got all sorts of gall stones in there. And they can’t blast ’em like kidney stones. Whole ‘nother ball game.
She’s sleeping now. Super tired, didn’t get much sleep at all. She’s feeling okay in terms of the pain and everything. We just have to avoid spicy, fatty, hydrogenated foods for the next 8-10 weeks til her surgery. Weight Watchers is gonna go into high gear.
One upside to all of this: they did an ultrasound of Steph’s tummy to scope out the gall bladder, etc. and since they were there, they also did an ultrasound of her womb. We saw Little One, all 1.3ish centimeters of him/her. Puts Steph somewhere around 6 weeks. Two cool things: 1) the tech let us hear the heartbeat. Man, that never gets old. Makes ya cry every time. 2) the tech printed us a picture, even though she wasn’t supposed to. Coolest tech ever.
