Red face From cycling to surgery in half an hour

Wow...life throws you these little curves, doesn't it? On Thursday I had a normal day of work, came home, cycled for exercise, and ate a little dinner. Half an hour later I was in acute abdominal pain, that night I was in the ER, and today I am in the hospital recovering from gall bladder surgery. I have another procedure to look forward to in the next few days, too.

So, think happy thoughts for me - I'm feeling almost human at the moment, given painkillers and a toothbrush - but I don't know if I'll be posting a lot or almost not at all over the next week or so.

cheers -
