Two day’s post-op, and I can finally chuckle myself with gratitude, even if it hurts, lol!
Though four days in the ER and hospital was at best a trial run at sinking vs Zen Buddhist apprenticeship 😊 I both – learned the truth behind why my core’s called a core AND – that I have much to be grateful for.
Both realizations centered round four days later finally laughing again, and my stomach rumbling a drunken-like dance inside shards of slit tissues – mine!
And I remembered sitting in the ER’s waiting room with my wife, waiting to be called through the double doors to an unknown diagnosis, doubled over in knife-sharp pain, tears streaming from my eyes, and laughing, hurting, saying to my wife, “No wonder it’s so hard to stay smiling when you hurt.”
I didn’t know then, that four days later, after having part of me cut out, laughing I was so glad to eat vegetables again, I’d be thinking almost the same thing — but this time, my core’s little rumble dance would answer me..yes…it’s worth it…. 😊
Some Links and Ideas
There’s lots of books offered on Amazon about gallbladders and this one has 94 reviews with an overall 4+ star rating. I’d recommend using this as a starting point and explore if this is something you might be interested in. The little my wife has found online tells me I definitely need to learn more about my post-op needs 😊
And here’s my post-op self-marketing offering, a little inspiration to get myself moving again – my collection of original sports poems I wrote in the 90’s working art shows with my wife Sheila 💕

One’s view and nature
grow balanced between the
thud thump heart-feet-beat
of one’s breath….
Thanks everyone! Adan 😊
