The Battle of Gall . . . . . . . Stones


Forgive the puns, I am high on Morphine at the moment. In less than 24 hours I'm getting my gallbladder removed thanks to some pesky painful stones. I woke up at almost 6 in the am, in incredible pain in my chest. I never wake up at six if I can help it, I am an unrepentant night owl. In any case it was bad enough that for someone who has never been to the hospital for themselves since birth I gladly went. My biggest regret is that my second run-through on edits is going to be slowed, surgery is a pain-in my time crunch.

At the very least, enjoy the morphine.

that doesn't sound like fun at all. maybe you'll get some really crazy ideas while doped up.

seems like most writers are night owls, doesn't it?

I was going to say, "Cool. Morphine. Enjoy it," but Th beat me to it. Here's to healing quickly.

Hope you're feeling better real soon, David! And I'm so self-absorbed that my first thought was, Oh, no, that much longer before I get to read Heroes of the Fallen! And btw thanks for your thoughts about that blog post. I really appreciated your support.

The surgery went well and now I am just sore and am going to rewrite how a character feel's about their wounds. I must say I did not enjoy Morphine at all. The way it hits your head all warm and pressing, to me I don't even understand how anyone could get to liking it. I hated it, but I am a person who has almost always toughed it out and avoided taking anything except on rare dire occasions, this was actually the first time I ever had morphine.

Yeah, I have no great desire to try it myself. But everyone else seems to dig it, so I thought it could be your silver lining. Alas.

Not fun. I hope your recovery is swift!
