I had to go to the ER by ambulance for the second time in a month for SEVERE abdominal pain etc.
I'm now admitted for the past couple days till they figure out what's wrong.
I'm never sick so this is rare for me and I certainly don't like it!
This post may look a little different because I'm trying to do it from my iPhone!
Not easy because it's hard to see.
What I know so far: was maybe a bowel obstruction but that's cleared. Gall bladder seems OK but they say that there's something wrong with the R kidney so now I'm waiting for a kidney Dr to see me.
In the meantime, now allowed full liquids which I'm sort of afraid to eat. I have IVs and allowed up to walk.
That's about all I know. So I wait along with my kids who have to pet sit at my house.
I'm trying to keep my mind positive. All the nurses and doctors are so nice.
There was a beautiful sunrise out my window this morning.
I ended up being in the hospital till this evening. Almost a full week!
They did all kinds of testing including an upper GI barium swallow and thought they saw an obstruction. So yesterday I went to surgery for an exploratory laporoscopy. My appendix was a little enlarged and maybe inflamed so they took that out but there was no obstruction.
This evening I came home with some pain and a lot of bloating from the gas they use during the procedure to separate the organs. Well, at least I know all my other organs are fine.
I was discharged this evening.
In a few weeks I have to have an endoscopy and then a colonoscopy. Oh thrill!!!
I hate all these things that seem to be going wrong at my age!
It sure is different being on the other end. I liked being the nurse a lot better than the patient!!
Both my kids took care of my animals while I was in the hospital. If they hadn't been around to do that, I don't know what I would've done!
