Olga hospitalized

Oh, well. Today we decided that Olga should see a doctor. She had pains in her stomach and back very often for the last two weeks.

Someone recommended that we see a gastrologist. OK. We decided to go the nearest polyclinic (“Ygia”). When we almost entered the building, I saw a “Gastrologist” sign across the road and we agreed to go there first, since that would most probably save us some queue time. The gastrologist was on holidays though and his secretary suggested that we go and get inspection from the general surgeon from the office across the coridor.

The guy there looked reasonable. We went through a troubleshooting session (very much like a chechlist they give to technical support personal at ISPs), and decided to do X-Ray and blood tests.

X-Ray immidiately revealed the source of pain – Olga appeared to have two stones in her gal bladder (small thingy that helps liver): one 12mm and another 8mm. Blood tests confirmed the theory. After not much of a discussion Olga is hospitalized and will undergo and operation to remove her gal bladder. The doctor promised that this will not affect any of her “afterlife”.

Quick shopping for the hospital staff and she is in. More news tomorrow.
