Surgery was Successful.

Everything went well. I'm home resting now with a solid amount of stomach pain. Thank you for all the prayers and love. I showed up to the hospital at 7am and they began doing the final prep work. At 8:30 surgery began. They shaved my stomach+swabbed it with iodine, pumped it full of gas to expose the gall bladder then began working on it. The gas is not in my intestines, but inside my body (I can't just fart it out) and it should be absorbed by my system in 3 days or so. The pain is sharp and intense but I'm taking pain pills to help me sleep. It feels like I have been shot in the stomach, I wasn't expecting that from what I heard from various folks- different body types I would imagine. Now I just have to take it easy for the next month and I should be right as rain : )
