Well ended up in the ER yesterday.  Woke up yesterday morning feeling kinda sick to my stomach, tried to eat a little breakfast and it came right back up.  Even sipping water made me throw up.  Ended up having to go to the ER because I knew I was getting dehydrated and not getting any better.  Gave me ALOT of nausea medicine and did a CT Scan and that turned out good.  Made sure they gave me plenty of fluids, nausea and pain meds and slept till about 4:30 pm today.  Do feel better but a little run down.  I hate this disease sometimes.  I hate being so sensitive to things.  Hopefully all will continue to improve.

So did they think it was the stomach flu? Or just your Crohn's acting up? I've been there done that, more times then I can count. I HATE throwing up, it's just the wosrt. Glad your feeling better now!

Thanks for all the good wishes guys.  Yeah it was the stomach flu that my lovely husband shared with me.  At least I told him when he was sick, "see thats what I feel like all the time."  He was quite sympathic.  Actually always has been.  But you know how it is with us, a minor stomach flu to the regular joe is an upset stomach for a day or two, but generally ends up sending us to the ER because everything is always so amplified.  Hopefully, I don't get the cold my husband has now.  Geesh!!  That man is the healthiest person I know and he has had the worst luck this past month.  Anyways, thanks again for all your good wishes.

 

God Bless,

Gail *Nanners*
