I'm scared for my father. It has not even been a year since he had surgery to remove a cancer-filled organ. Luckily, the cancer was completely contained and they got it out in one fell swoop. But he has been slow to recover since that surgery. And then just a few days ago, he had to go to the hospital because of intense pain in his abdomen. They did scans and found that his gallbladder is filled with sludge and can no longer function. He has to go under the knife, twice in one year, to have it removed as it is the only way as the sludge cannot be removed from the gallbladder and even if it was, the gallbladder is too far gone. I hope, I truly hope, the surgery goes well and he goes on to lead a pain-free life. But two organs to be removed in one year? That's an intense burden to bear.
