  1. One of our cardinal rules of life is: NEVER SPEND A NIGHT ALONE IN A HOSPITAL. We say this after spending our working careers in hospitals. My wife once had to spend a couple days (and nights) getting IV antibiotics, and her nursing friends rotated shifts of their off-time to stay with her overnight. And this was on the very floor they worked on. When my mother was in with a brain bleed, I spent the nights with her, telling everyone I met that “I’m here to yell if any yelling needs to be done!”
    We certainly hope you have trusted others to do the same for you. Fortunately, g-b surgery nowadays is pretty straightforward stuff, and if that’s all there is to the problem, you should be out and home in a day or two.

  2. Had mine out a couple of years ago. No big deal. Doctor was so impressed he took pictures because my Gall bladder turned into a skin bag of stones. The biggest was the size of a shelled walnut. there were a few of those. I think i still have it in the freezer.

  3. You’ll make it. You are too tough and ornery not to :). My mom had that op done when about your vintage – & she did just fine. So will you.

  4. “That which doesn’t kill you had better be fucking running away” 😀
    Hang tough man and I pray you will be healed.

  5. You got this big guy…My mom had hers’ out at 98 years old…after they finally found a surgeon willing to roll the bones on someone that old…in recovery they said “no sweat, you can go home if you want…you’re good to go.” The family weren’t though…convinced her she should stay in one night.

  6. Fortunately, it’s “EX” f’in law. Blood relation excluded. Nothing to see here. Get out of there as fast as you can!

  7. God Bless Ye. See you back in the harness asap.
    The one good thing to facing mortality (again!) is it dials up your “don’t give a fuck meter” past the redline to lay buried against the peg.
    And God knows, we need more fearless truth speakers.
    Salute!
