1.5 weeks after saying goodbye (and good riddance) to the gall bladder, I'm feeling pretty good. The little scars are healing (itching like crazy, so I know they're healing!) and I ran 3 miles on the treadmill yesterday afternoon with no ill effects showing up after or today.

But that's not the main reason I'm feeling lucky. I'm feeling lucky to be here, to have friends on DietBet that left cheers and comments and likes the last few weeks as I went through my little medical drama. And, yes, I know it's little compared to what a lot of people face, but it was scary and change and all that jazz for me. 

So a huge and grateful THANK YOU!!! to everyone for their support and cheers and checking in. It helped me more than these words can say.
