I Think Maybe Meatloaf Was Wrong

In October, my 14 year old had to have her gallbladder removed.
It was not working right and was causing a lot of pain.

Finally, my husband goes to the doctor because he is in pain.

He had gone to another doctor a couple years ago and they did an ultrasound, didn't find anything and said if it got worse they would check into it more.

Well, it has gotten worse and I finally convinced him to go to the doctor.

This doctor did more than an ultrasound and said they'd figure it out.
Did a HIDA scan and yeah- it's his gallbladder.

HIDA scan is where they run dye through your system and take pictures of the abdomen to see how well the gallbladder functions.

His is at 12% which is lower than Kiddo's.

He's in so much pain and he is tired all the time.
He's all pale.
It just isn't good.

He goes in to see the surgeon tomorrow.

His work clothes felt looser when he put them on last night.

We are hoping that is not a bad sign.

So, two out of three people in the house have bad gallbladders.
Two out of three is bad.

Sorry, Meatloaf.
You were wrong.
