What fun, what fun.

I am now officially diagnosed with gallstones.

This is a relief to finally have a diagnosis after so many years. I had a doctor suggest an ultrasound some years ago, but at the time I didn't have any insurance and couldn't afford it. So I suffered, and had an attack last night it required a trip to the ER where they gave me the happy drugs and performed an ulrasound on me. So now I have a referral to a surgeon and get to talk to him about either doing something about the gallstones, or something about the gallbladder itself.

I am now on a clear liquids diet for 24 hours, and I found out something cool: Kool-Aid and Country Time Lemonade now come in single-bottle packets, where you just add the packet to a bottle of water, shake and you have Kool-Aid. it's a neat thing. And I've got enough chicken broth for a change of taste. And my momma asked me to keep her informed because if I do have the surgery to have it taken out, she'll come up and take care of her little girl. [yay!].

It's too bad applesauce can't be considered a clear liquid, because i've still got that jar of homemade applesauce that my grandma gave me. But I'll get to have that tomorrow when I can eat solid foods again.

Nice to know what it is finally, and *hooray* it's something that can be dealt with! I'm praying for a really easy treatment & recovery for you :)

GET BETTER SOON WOMAN! At least you know what's going on!

Also, about the small packet things, the same is also true of Crystal Light -- and if you use 24 oz. instead of 20, it doesn't leave the sharp aftertaste in the back of your throat as badly.

Ah, but I need the sugar today. Aspartame is not a good source of calories.
