bed rest brings me back to you..........

Hello bloggies!!! It has been a long 2 1/2 month furlough, but alas, I am drawn back to the blogging world.....why now you say??? WELL, here's what's been going on in the ever insane Hamilton household.....
Well my last month I was pregnant with Georgia I experienced some horrific chest pain that caused me to throw up and have chills and fever (sorry if that was TMI). I brushed it off as the last few weeks of my pregnancy were off enough in of itself. Then the "attacks" if you will, started happening in more frequent intervals. FINALLY after much prompting from my husband, I saw the doctor in November. He thought it was several different possible things, but nevertheless we settled on horrible acid reflux and he wanted to treat me for that for a few months and then readdress the issue....literally one week later my hiney was in the ER- i.e. KIDNEY STONES!!! So my doc and I both just scratched our heads and said I'll be damned....maybe the kidney stones were just having a weird effect on my body....so we ran with that. THEN last Thursday I woke up at midnight with the worst chest pain I had experienced to date and was in excruciating pain until that Saturday....last Monday I had an ultrasound because they wanted to look at my gallbladder....and SURE ENOUGH it was stockpiled with gallstones- so, the kidney stones seemed to be a freak thing that threw us off track for that one week but the rest of the time, it was my gallbladder....who'd a thunk it?!?!? That one person would have kidney stones AND gallstones in one lifetime!?!?!? Oh it's possible my friends....so I was rushed over to the surgeon's office this past weekend and yesterday I had that sucker taken out! I already feel so much better, aside from the pain of the gas they blow you up with (it has settled all in my chest and shoulders and back and it feels like I have worked out for a week nonstop!) and my incisions itch like a mother. I have to be out of work until next week (boo) so Ill be facebook stalking...and blogging....what better activities to fill your time with?!?!? I can already tell a major difference when I eat so I am so relieved to be out of pain. It is awful and I feel for anyone out there that puts up with this any longer than I had to...I couldn't even make it a year....
For those of you that have emailed me and checking on me I really appreciate it!! I will blog later with all of the wonderful things that have been going on with us!!!!
