Stitch or Die... And a health update

So it's been a trying week. We spent Tuesday at ER because I had new problems on my right side, instead of just my left, and they felt way worse. I'm on a 48 hr watch, waiting to see if I get a fever to indicate an infection (it didn't appear that I had one at ER on tuesday). So far so good. *fingers crossed*
And I got an appt. with my family doc on Monday (even though it's a holiday here she is working). So here's hoping that some answers might materialize from there. I'm still hurting from what might be an ulcer on the left side, and now have new pain on the right... It's a mess really.

But the good news... I'm alive and breathing, so far. lol. I'm hurting but managing for now. I just hope this doesn't go on forever and they can do something to help soon. (also the diet they told me to do sucks, so I'd love to go back to eating real good and not just oatmeal and rice! okay there are more options than that, but not by much)

Alright... onto stitching. Needless to say stitching has been pretty sparse. I was glad that I started Stitch or Die on the weekend, cause it's an easy stitch and I don't have to think as hard. I did also work on Elfland for the HAED SAL but forgot to take a pic...will come tomorrow.
For now, here is Stitch or Die (I am not super happy with the coverage on it, but it's just for me in my little stash area, so I am not too concerned):

 

Thanks for all your past comments on Friday. I really appreciate all the wishes for good health. 
I am really hoping we get some answers soon and then out of that get some relief. It's just no fun to be in agony all the time, let me tell you that. But we'll get through. Cause there is not much choice in the matter. 
Also, huge kudos to my BF who sat through no sleep and 9 hours at ER. He was sooo great! And I just got tell you that I feel very very lucky to have him to help me out.

Oh, Mel! I hope you are feeling better soon. Somehow I missed your last post and I didn't realize you may have an ulcer. I hope the doctors get it figured out soon, and that you will be mended in no time.

Coverage looks fine to me. Hope you can get all your pains figured out, and a big slap on the back to BF for taking and sitting with you, you can be in an ER for hours if not days.

Awww, Mel. I'm sorry you're still feeling bad. Yuck. Nine hours in the ER. Glad your BF was there with you, though. It's always nice to have somene there for moral support.

S&D looks good on that fabric. I biggi-fied it and the coverage looks fine to me.
