Squirrel Friends co-host and Drag Race guest judge Loni Love had successful gallbladder removal surgery, and as soon as she woke up, she was making jokes and dishing out wise words from her recovery room. In her typical upbeat fashion, Love let us know everything went great. She also had some health-related advice we should all heed:
I’m fine by the way. I had a quick question. Whenever y’all go to the OR, do y’all ever make the whole OR stop and get into a little prayer? We had a prayer moment. That was me, okay? The nonbelievers, y’all just think some positive thoughts. Put on some Kirk Franklin. Thank you, Kirk. Let’s say a quick prayer before y’all put me under.
She was able to get on the path to better health by getting regular checkups.
Make sure that you check your health. Go to the doctor. Check your numbers. Get your blood work done. Because without your health, you are just as broke as if you don’t have nothing in your bank account. Health is wealth. I wanted to let y’all know that.”
A great option for your Kirk Franklin pre-surgery playlist is “Smile“:
