A short update and a lot of giveaways!

Hi, all! If you follow me on Facebook, then you know why I have been absent here on my blog. Last weekend, I suffered my very first gallbladder attack and ended up in the ER. I didn't even know I had stones till a week ago when I had my regular systematic general check up. I can only compare the pain to labor pains but without relief, for 5+ hours, and without the joy of bringing home a sweet baby.

I'm still in a lot of pain, but not as bad as the attack. I'm doing tests and waiting for a surgery date, which I hope will happen in the next 2 weeks. In them meantime, there are FOUR chances to win amazing prizes from my favorite commpanies.

I missed The Craft's Meow's release hop. There is still time to join and win prizes. I have 4 stamp sets and 1 by Karen being released.

I am also part of the Authentique/Want2Scrap blog hop going on now. You can find my project on the Want2Scrap blog and get a chance to win a prize package.


Two of my Penny Black stamps are being featured on the Moxie Fab World blog today. Comment to win 5 PB stamps!

Finally, I will post the winner of the NinaB Designs hop this weekend. In the meantime, you can still enter! I hope to be back to normal soon as I have tons of projects to share with you all!

  9. I had my first and only gall bladder attach several years ago. I agree with you about the pain except where you had no pain between contractions with child birth, this was unrelenting! My attack was on a Monday night, got in to see the dr. on Tuesday late afternoon and he thought it was gall bladder and scheduled an ultrasound for the next day. He gave me a shot for pain and that took the edge off of it. I had the ultrasound at 2 in the afternoon and at 5:00 that same day I was wheeled into surgery. Easy surgery and recovery and no pain since! Best of luck to you.

  13. I've been down that gallbladder road and it's awful! Surgery definitely fixes the problem though. I hope you're able to get your surgery scheduled ASAP and that you have an uneventful recovery.

  17. Been there and done that. Labor pains are preferable. Hope your surgery is quick with the small incision so there will be a quicker recovery.
