My mom is such a douche bag. She is getting her gallbladder taken out.
She hasn't even done all that she can do to prevent this from happening. All she has to do is do this liver flush, and that should take care of the problem. I've done that liver flush 3-4 times already, just for kicks and giggles (and because everyone needs a good liver flush now and again), and it is not that big of a deal. And it is such a beneficial alternative TO GETTING YOUR GALLBLADDER TAKEN OUT! (You know, because you need your gallbladder to do such things as digest fats and stuff.)
I don't get it. Such an easy thing to do. Something that everybody should be doing anyway every once in awhile. Why doesn't she do it in lieu of getting surgery? I don't freaking get it.
Mother wants one of us children (either me or my sister) to drive her to or from the hospital on Thursday, March 18. My sister can't do it, which leaves me. I CAN do it, and I want to be there to support my mother when she needs me to be there for her... but this is just something that I fundamentally disagree with. It'd be like asking for my support when you're going in to get an elective cesarean. Or an abortion.
I would be more apt to want to be there for her if SHE HAD DONE EVERYTHING SHE POSSIBLY COULD TO AVOID THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE, which she hasn't. Bah.
