So long, farewell

So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight

I hate to go and leave my gallbladder behind.

So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, adieu

Adieu, adieu to not vomit any more, I wouldn't mind.

So long, farewell, Au revoir, Auf Weidersehen

I'd like it to stay and digest some more fat...
So long, farewell, Auf Weidersehen, goodbye

I leave and heave and go under the knife.
I hope and pray, I wake up still alive.

I starve, I scrub, I really want to cry.
The sun has gone to bed and so must I
So long, farewell Auf Weidersehen, goodbye
Goodbye Gallbladder.


Dear Gallbladder,
I would like to say that I will miss you, but the truth is, I have been counting the minutes to get rid of you. You have been a no-good, dysfunctional member of my anatomy for many years now. You are a sneaky little organ and had all the doctors scratching their heads. One told me "ulcers." Another said, "urinary tract infection." I'm pretty sure another thought "munchausen's." I don't want to sound like I'm holding a grudge, but I am looking forward to losing you, and I won't grieve you at all. Good riddance rotten gallbladder.

Best thing I ever had done was to evict my gall bladder. Just get up and walk around afterward - that bloat is killer.

PS - you will win the farting contests should you enter one after surgery... I'm just saying...

Maybe the gallbladder removal will help with weight loss ala my tonselectomy. Best diet I ever did!
