Kenda, I have had that test and it isn't as bad as I thought it would
be. I have gallbladder problems off and on...I have found my best 'care'
during these bouts is to go strictly liquid diet. Jello,water,clear
broth etc.  The pain is awful. I will keep you in my thoughts.

Hugs,
Sabrina in Kentucky

Kenda, does your Grandma qualify for
assisted living or nursing home care?
So many times,no matter how much we love them,our dear aging loved ones
cannot be cared for at home the way they NEED to be. My dear Mother
fought the idea until it became clear even to her, that she needed
someone to be with her at all times . We all felt so much more relieved
to know she was having good meals every day and that her medications
were being given correctly and on time.
  Having her family close by and visiting daily assured that she was
being well cared for. When any long term care facility sees how much a
family is involved..they are more involved as well.
Keeping all of you in my prayers.

Hugs,
Sabrina in Kentucky

Our oldest DS has had this test also.  He hugged me last night and told me
it would be a breeze!  Keep in mind less than 12 hours after he had the test
his gallbladder was removed.  lol
I just wish they'd remove the darn thing and be done with it.  Thank you for
the kind thoughts Sabrina

Thank you Tabitha.  It's a shame and hard to believe two very kind and sweet
people could produce a cold and uncaring person such as my aunt.  I tried to
call today and my aunt wouldn't let me talk to her.....DH told me to go
ahead and call social services.  but I'll give her until the end of the
week.....

Glad to hear they found out she had a problem they could fix easily.  I hope
you aunt will learn her lesson and take better care of her.  Your cousin did
the right thing reporting your aunt for the neglect, so someone can monitor
the situation.  I hope they find out soon what is going on with your
gallbladder.  I'll keep you in my thoughts and hope the pain killers
continue to work till they can fix the problem.
