The List

February 28, 2010

I am so tired of the restrictions I’m on before this gallbladder surgery that I’m making a list of what I want to do afterwards.  Boiled down to its essence, the list is morphine, chocolate and cheese.

Okay, maybe scrap morphine because it makes me throw up and I don’t want to be throwing up with an abdominal incision, but I want good pain meds.  And cheese might come before chocolate.  I’m not sure.  I want my grandma’s famous chocolate cake because I didn’t get to have any for Valentine’s Day.  But I also want pizza, lasagna, macaroni and cheese, ham and cheese omelettes, fondue, nachos and lots of other ooey-gooey dishes.


1. pain meds
2. cheese
3. chocolate

Anything else I should add?

Keep your fingers crossed that everything goes well…
