Ahh! I know I have yet to put up the pics from NYC and Katsucon. I have been rather MIA though as I was taken to the hospital a week ago. ;; I was in horrible, horrible pain in my midsection and it turned out my gallbladder was inflamed and I was having what they call a gallbladder attack. Since then I have been a bit sick and eating much gives me discomfort. I saw a surgeon last Wednesday and after reviewing the final results of all the tests and stuff, he decided it needs to be removed.
So I'm scheduled for surgery this Wednesday. >.<
It was explained to me as a simple lapriscopic procedure and I go home later that day unless complications arise. Admittedly, I'm terrified! I know, kinda sad I guess, but I've always been afraid of surgery and thus outside of stuff like dental work, stitches, and my broken arm... I've never had anything resembling surgery! Years ago an orthopedic doctor wanted to do a procedure on my knees, but the idea of surgery scares me so much I've just lived with the pain! But this.. I'm told if it gets worse and ruptures it can be fatal, so I don't have quite the same choice. Still scared though!
To make such fun matters worse, an old filling fell out of my back molar and I was going to try getting it fixed today or tomorrow. Yesterday I woke up around 7am near screaming in pain from the tooth. All I can figure is that it got infected. I called the after hours thing for my dentist and gave my information along with the problem, but never heard back. >:| Kind of pissed about that, as even though I've been taking pain meds.. it's still hurting so much that I haven't been able to sleep. :/ The pain killer dulls it somewhat, but mostly makes me feel a bit weird and slightly nauseous since I can't eat much. *sigh* I'm planning on begging them to fit me in today at the dentist once the office opens. Not only would it be nice to sleep, but if it's not taken care of quickly they might cancel the surgery. (And I kind of want to get it done and over with so I can stop dreading it!)
But that's what I've been up to pretty much.
