Penny is home from the hospital. I called about 7 last night to get an update and she answered the phone. Which both surprised and pleased me. I asked what they had decided was wrong with her and she said "Gall bladder." So, dumb me, I said "When are they going to take it out?" She told me they had removed it that morning. And sent her home 8 hours later! She was still fighting off the immediate effects of the anesthesia, for pete's sake. What is WITH health care in the US?! But I'm glad she's through the worse of it and on the road to recovery... even if she has to spend the next week living upstairs in bed!
