My husband had his gall bladder removed today, he’s resting comfortably. 

“He’s got a lotta gall.” Nope, he doesn’t. Not any more. What does that even mean?!?

Grateful for the caregivers!!

@aspire Best wishes to your husband.

One point of advice, if you'll allow it. Look into digestive enzymes for him. Ask the doc about it. 

This is what I know. Squeamish need read no farther.  I discussed the aftereffects of gall bladder removal with my GI doc 3 years ago. He agreed with my suspicion, chronic cramping diarrhea usually occurs after a removal. It happened to my sister and others. Sister said she has to immediately go to the bathroom after eating, like NOW, no waiting, complete urgency.  The gall bladder collects bile and empties after a meal. When a removal has occurred, the bile constantly leaks, has no collection of digestive enzymes to digest a meal correctly. I hope I wasn't overly gross, but do look into it. I like the Enzymedica brand that I get from Amazon. I use the Lypo gold after a fatty meal.

@sue-ellen Wow thank you so much! Not sure if that’ll be the case yet with my husband - too soon yet - but the enzyme idea makes sense. Appreciate your input!

I have to make my Astro week ahead. I just wrote it and it came out dire.  I'm going with it though.

Today I searched "Pluto in Capricorn". An article on the first page of results claimed it was about "reinventing your sun sign".

I would never be able to learn astrology if I had to begin today.  Real things are disappearing off the 'net faster than you can spin.

Omg, I just looked up my great grandmother on my moms sides birth chart. Nov. 20,1925 is her birthday. She died Dec 2018. She has a CAPRICORN MOON. So my Mom, her mom, AND HER MOM ALL HAVE CAPRICORN MOONS. I find that amazing. And I am married to a Cap Moon. No freaking wonder.

That's amazing. I'm married to a Capricorn Moon, which sets on my Capricorn Sun.  Our only child has Capricorn rising. All three points are conjunct.

I’m amazed at how things line up, leading you where you’re supposed to be. I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. That’s what I started out going to school for, but the universe had other plans. And it all makes so much sense now. 

I have Chiron in the 10th exactly Sextile my Sun/Moon conjunction in the 8th house. Chiron also quintiles my Mercury. It’s part of a boomerang pattern in my chart as well, involving my Sun/Moon/Venus/Pluto/Saturn. I have the NN in the 11th house. I’m a therapist now and sort of a jack of all trades therapist, honing skills, no real niche yet. But I’m helping people gain independence (11th), with transitioning out of long-term care. These people have various mental illnesses and/or physical disabilities. So I’m practicing every type of psychotherapy you can think of.   It’s an exciting job — people are for the most part, looking forward to gaining back their autonomy.

Of course I wanted to be a teacher of children (5th). I had this strong desire to be a healing presence for them, but the universe pulled me in another direction.

Sometimes what I’m doing doesn’t feel “natural”. In some ways it does, but it feels foreign. I learn something new everyday that’s for sure. I can see myself going further and further with this for sure. I think I’m meant to be doing this type of work. I have some kind of divine protection surrounding me. I experience divine interventions, big and small, on a near daily basis. Something out there wants me to do this for a reason. I’m humbled and amazed.

Later this month, I'm planning to attend a powwow--my first one ever. My Native client (Cherokee, Apache) has been asking me to go to one for years now, so I'm trying to move forward on that now. The season is winding down but there's still a few going on. It's been a long time since I took more than one day off from work for a vacation out of town--for anything other than a funeral. And I need a break--I feel drained. 

In a way, I feel like this is for me, as well as my client, who is a medicine woman. Also, my husband, who was Cherokee. His disabilities would not have allowed him to go--North Carolina is not exactly the smoothest terrain!

@notmycircus 

that sounds fun! For the longest, like a lot of people from the south, I thought I had native blood. I was told that by relatives growing up, however, after doing ancestry research, turned out not true. 🙁 Saddens me so much. I really love native culture.

 

I’ve been to a powwow once, it’s super fun! Show us some pictures if you want. Have fun!!

@sirena-oceana My dad's cousin (the family historian) says in my great-great grandmother's bio online, that a certain line of the family is registered on the Dawes Rolls as Choctaw. Haven't been able to confirm yet. She also said one of my 3rd great-grandmothers is Scottish and Choctaw. Found the Scottish ancestors, and MAYBE a Mattaponi woman (her husband is listed on a family tree as being buried at the reservation, and no one knows her name, just that she MIGHT be an "Indian", so....welcome to the 1600's! lol)

Anyway, not gonna worry about all that, just going to have a good time and recharge.

@notmycircus I love reading this. I went to a small one in the Sioux reservation and brought home a dog. He was a special one, a therapy dog for me during a complicated time... Have a blessed journey!

@cocopeaches Thank you! If Shiny Taurus were still down here, he'd read that and beg me to come home with a dog, preferably a husky. 😆 🤣

So cool!  I went to several when I lived in CA -- lots of fun activities, drumming, dancers, exhibits, ethereal flute music, craft items, and great food!

@warped I'm looking forward to all of it. 😀

My Native client said she would be with me in spirit since she can no longer travel.
