Alas, I spoke too soon. I am just home from another stay in the hospital. Same condition as before--blockage in the lower intestine. I had another NG tube stuffed up my nose and down into stomach. They pumped my tummy again for a few days. Medical people out there--you know how invasive that is. Plus--ouchy. And miserable. All of that.
My last CT scan showed no blockages, no tumors, no nothing, so they released me from the umbilical cord. Then the surgeon told me that it will probably happen again, maybe next week or next month. Whenever. And that I can't do anything to prevent it.
I cried so hard I had to be sedated. My family Doctor came in and when I told him the conversation with the surgeon he said that we are not going to lay down for that, and he is sending me to a GI Doctor. I have an appt. tomorrow. I don't know that anyone can help me, but I'm going to try every avenue I can.
My sewing has been nill this entire year. There are so many things I want to do. I just haven't been able to get on my feet. But I will. My husband took me for a little walk outside--it's so pretty today. I'm a bit wobbly yet, but making an effort to move around and get my strength back.
Meanwhile, I have a week's worth of your blogs to catch up on. I know you are all making fabulous spring clothes. I'm so glad to have them to read while I recuperate.
