Wanted to give you all an update (since I'm up stupid early after having some tests done for pre-op)
I've gotten everything cleared with my work and will be able to keep my job through all this (thankfully) however since I'm still on probation (6 months of new employee probation, I'm not even 1/2 way through) my leave will be unpaid.
They're projecting about 2 weeks of recovery, but if I'm feeling better before then my surgeon said he will release me back to work (only after the first week of recovery though)
So my off time is going to be spent drawing once I'm feeling well enough to sit at my computer.
So! About the surgery for those of you who are curious. I will be going in on March 1st (My 25th birthday... yes... I get surgery for my birthday this year...) for the surgery. I'm getting Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (Laproscopic Gallbladder Removal). Basically they're poking 4-5 holes in my stomach and using long tools to remove my gallbladder, they said we aren't even going to bother just removing the stones as they usually come back after a year or so, so we're just taking it out... good riddens... damn gallbladder...
Given the surgery goes well (which it hopefully will), I'll be going home the same day. I'll have been under general anesthetic (they're putting me to sleep for a little), so I'll likely not be making updates the day of. However I might have my friend give updates over on discord for you guys as she's taken off for the surgery and will be there with me for moral support, like the wonderful wife she is
Anyway, after the surgery the doctor says I'll probably feel pretty bad for 3ish days, I hope not but like... at this point a few more days of pain isn't anything... I'll take that bullet to never deal with this again!
But yeah hopefully when that's all done I'll be feeling wonderful and back to functioning like a normal person!
And of course I'll let you guys know how the surgery went when I'm able to ^^
Also, thank you to everyone who gave me info about this, your help has really put my mind at ease. I appreciate it.
And as always thank you all again for all your love and support! I hope you all are doing well and that things are going good for you in 2018.
Love and Hugs,
I've had someone ask if I have a donation link so I'll post it here for anyone who wanted it (Since I'll be busy with post-op stuff I might not be able to answer, so there it is!) www.paypal.me/AM1343
