As reported by Taste of Country, Country Music star Toby Kieth is under going the surgeon’s knife to have his Gallbladder removed. Neither Paul or I know a whole lot about what exactly a Gallbladder is let a lone what kind of purpose it serves in our bodies.

 

According to Wikipedia:

The gallbladder is a hollow system that sits just beneath the liver.[2] In adults, the gallbladder measures approximately 8 centimetres (3.1 in) in length and 4 centimetres (1.6 in) in diameter when fully distended.[3] It is divided into three sections: fundus, body and neck. The neck tapers and connects to the biliary tree via the cystic duct, which then joins the common hepatic duct to become the common bile duct. At the neck of the gallbladder is a mucosal fold called Hartmann’s pouch, where gallstones commonly get stuck. The angle of the gallbladder is located between the costal margin and the lateral margin of the rectus abdominis muscle.
