Still Here!

Hello everyone ! You have not seen any  recent post because I have been been in the hospital.  I went to the emergency room last Saturday with severe pain on my right side.  They took test but could not pin point where the  pain was coming from.  They gave me pain pills to get through the week end. (which I hate to take.")
I called my PCP Monday morning and she thought  I needed to be back at emergency  They did a few more test.  Then the house doctor thought  I needed to be admitted.

I was put through the mill with test.  A scope of my abdomen, more test on my stomach and small bowel.  

I came home yesterday morning.   They said it was irritable  bowel syndrome.  Also, gastritis !  The lining of my stomach is inflamed.

It really is  havoc.  Family Physicians  do not go to the hospitals anymore.  So you have a strange doctor with no idea of your physical condition.  Then a specialist comes in and I couldn't slow him down enough to tell him much of anything ~~

I'm just glad I am home.  I will follow up with my primary doctor
next week.
Pray for us.  Silas had Pneumonia last month.  He followed up with a chest x-ray and it took them two weeks to get the report.  He still has something in a certain part of his lung that they still call pneumonia.  He is going for another x-ray the same day  that  I do my follow up.  So put us on your prayer list. 

I will post  when I feel better.  Have a blessed day!

I knew something was up when I hadn't heard from you. I'll be praying for you and Silas to both get back to good health. I'll be watching for an update. Hope you have a good weekend!

Oh my ... I'm so sorry. Thank God they've diagnosed it; and hopefully they can treat the condition with something that not only alleviates the pain, but that diminishes the effects of the condition.

Be well & blessed,
