Not Well

I have been in the hospital all week, since tuesday.
I missed Sullivan's 5th birthday because of issues in my colon.
We cancelled his carnival birthday bash because I have gas.
This is really getting to be a pain in the ass.

Not well.
But no infectious contagious.
Waiting for results on tests to determine anything auto immune.
Really tired.
Can never remember how to spell that.

Happy to be home resting.
Happy my close friend had a healthy baby boy on Monday.
My interview went well, and I was due to Shadow the coordinator in the ICU department on Tuesday, but instead I was in the ER.

My heart reacted and a neurological reaction occurred due to dehydration and too quick of a push of Zofran IV Meds.
Had an upper GI procedure Wednesday evening and they said, "Gastritis."

So my colon is playing with my stomach.
Tennis for colitis and gastritis.

Home though.
Was there from Tuesday until yesterday, Friday.

Trying to rest. Not thinking about how I will manage this coming week.
With the care needed for my brother, my parents are unable to help me out.

Trying not to think about that too much.
Instead I'm going to go back to bed.

See you later.
Say hi if you want to.
I'm cranky, can you tell?
Not even going to spell check this.

I know your doctors are doing probably a bazillion tests, but have they checked for a sudden food allergy or celiac disease? One of my friends suffered for over a year with some of the same symptoms and was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitits, they thought it was Crohn's (sp?) Disease for a while. After all that agony, it turned out she had developed an allergy to wheat gluten. She still has a lot of tummy issues, but making a change in her diet made for a drastic improvement. In any case, I do hope you start feeling better!!

Oh Elizabeth I've been thinking of you so much! I'm so sorry that you're going through all this and am praying that you will be well very soon and everything will be back to normal. I would have commented sooner except my computer was down. Sending love and prayers your way....hang in there sweetie. This, too, shall pass. Love and hugs.

Elizabeth, I can never quite believe how much you've gone through - but you do it with grace and style. Love and prayers.
