It seems like the curse continues...the curse being gall bladder woes. Joe was so happy after he had his removed, he could eat almost anything and not be bothered with pains. He was lucky the doctor did the 4 small cuts...but then he also repaired a hernia which was a very slow recovery. Brenda, I hope you got the teeny weeny snips! Lucky you to have Nannie around to fuss over you!
