Last week did not start out well, so here is hoping this week is better. Here is my story: On Monday of last week I ended up in the ER. I had had severe (And I Mean Severe) abdominal pain all weekend. Monday morning I got a hold of my doctor and she said What Are You Thinking!? Go To The ER! I had been avoiding the ER all weekend...But I went. I couldn't take the pain anymore anyway. They did a CT scan right away, and gave me a nice hit of narcotics, phew, and I was diagnosed with an intestinal obstruction/blockage. I mean it's nothing exciting, but it was nothing to sneeze at either! So you know what comes next...I was transported via ambulance down to the bosses: aka my transplant hospital. And I was there for a week getting lots and lots of IVs to get the blockage moving and lots and lot of pain medication to keep me sane, and we were able to avoid surgery! Hurray!
