A hospital Update

I have been in the hospital since Tuesday morning.
I am home on a day pass right now. What it means is we have to make sure I diligently take my meds and that we are back at the hospital before 10pm tonight (I have to sleep there). Same deal tomorrow. And then more tests on Monday.
I know that the lovely Evalina, Terri and Meari have all been keeping all from ILCS in the loop and to them a huge huge huge thank you!

I cannot access my blog on my phone which was my only source of internet, so my apologies for not updating sooner.

I am hoping to be able to share more info on Monday after my last test.
We have solved one of my problems which was an acid taste in my mouth, caused by bile in my stomach. The meds they are giving me for it are working.
Unfortunately so far nothing is working on the pain. So it may be a bit of trial and error for awhile. Once I have Monday's test I will have more info, (and maybe a name for the disease to share).

I was able to stitch a bit last night from my hospital bed as they took my IV out. It was glorious!

I have missed all of you and hearing about your lives I'm so sorry to have not been around. I know some of you have been having a very rough time with things and do know that I am thinking of you as well.

I will update on Monday when I know more info (and hopefully when I'm home for good)
*hugs to all*

So sorry to hear of your recent episodes! I'm not in the group any longer so I hadn't heard. I hope your tests solve the mystery and you get some answers real soon! Take care of yourself.

I can't imagine that you have been through so much yourself and are still worried about others. Take care of yourself! You need all the strength you have to get better and heal. I hope the doctors can solve your problem quickly. Then a restful recovery time when you can stitch and rest as much as you need to.

Hope you get better soon. At least you can cross stitch now...you'll probably get quite a bit done.
