I am officially home from the hosptial.
After seven days, million of tests, and a bunch of different drugs I am home. With the same pain... But with four drugs to take and try. (they can take awhile to kick in). So I have to try to get my life back in order, make some money, manage some new dietary restrictions and manage the pain. Ah, easy stuff right? lol.
The official diagnosis is Sphincter of the Oddi Dysfunction (SOD), Type III. You can google it if you want to know more. Also I have a back-up of Bile in my stomach, so on acid reducers for that (caused by the SOD issue).
But at least we have a name for the disease and so now can try starting to treat it. No magically solution sadly, it's trial and error. But that's the best we can do right now.
I have so many other things to update you on...
Terri visited me in the hospital on Friday and brought these lovely flowers, along with many hugs:
I was out on day pass on Saturday and Sunday (had to sleep at the hospital). On Saturday my B/F took me to my stitching store to spend some of my birthday money. I picked up two things. Halloween Quaker by Cherished Stitches:
As I had no IV at the hospital since Friday I worked a bit on Stitch or Die. Here is where it stands now:
My current plan now is get my life back in order... and stitch on my poor neglected Dragons. I do have to start work immediately tomorrow so we can pay some bills and stuff (and so I don't loose my job). Here's hoping I can manage.
Thank you to everyone for their kind thoughts and prayers. We are not at the end of the road yet, it may be a long one, but at least we have some progress
