An Update, in Which Bee Loses a Body Part

Upcoming post: S'mores Cupcakes

So, my regularly scheduled posting has been postponed thanks to my bitch of a gallbladder who decided it was time to be purged from my body ASAP.

Upcoming post: Homemade Bagels

About 2am Monday I was in unbearable pain and brought to the emergency room. At 10am I was finally seen, and after much blood work and tests and ultrasounds it was concluded my gallbladder was quite the unhappy camper--full of stones and very inflamed. At midnight Tuesday they removed my gallbladder. For the full story, click here to go to my other blog.

I am doing okay now--in a lot of post-surgery pain but I have my laptop so I'm trucking on through. I have like five posts in the queue for you but they'll have to wait for now. My next post was going to be another In Memory of my Dad post, since his 52nd birthday would have been on the 11th. But, as you can see, I was mighty distracted over the past few days... heh.

Upcoming post: Ginger Salmon

In the meantime, Musings On Life After College interviewed me for their blog! I was seriously honored to be picked, and very touched by what Rebecca said about me :) So please check it out while you all wait in anticipation for my next recipe! Click here for my interview.

Upcoming post: My first quiona attempt (with beets of course!)

In other news, I'm on a clear-liquids-only diet for the next few days. If anyone has any suggestions on how to make that tolerable to a budding foodie, I'd appreciate it!


  1. hope you're feeling okay! glad it sounds like you got the care you needed!

  2. Hope you feel better soon! Can't wait to see the recipe for those s'mores cupcakes.

  3. Good luck with the recovery! A few of my friends had their gall bladder removed and it was rough.

  4. oh my gosh, those cupcakes look iiiiincredible!

  5. I'm sorry! Hope you are having a speedy recovery and back to your normal self soon! Lately I have been cutting up fruit and vegetables and adding it to my water for flavor. Strawberries and mint are really yummy and so is cucumber and ginger.

  6. oh my gosh! i hope you're doing ok now!! i know a few people who have had to get their gallbladders removed. you'd think that we would just stop growing them, since they seem to be so problematic. haha. i can't wait to see the cupcake post. they look delicious!! feel better soon!

    1. I think I'd rather have a functioning gallbladder if given the choice, but I suppose no gallbladder is better than the dysfunctional one I had. Now I'm going to have to finagle a whole new diet and way of eating... it's stressing me out!
