Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. I'm highly frustrated at my doctors. My outpatient doctor spoke with the admitting team and they didn't do one thing that my outpatient doc recommended. I'm very frustrated that they didn't draw one single stinking lab on me, they felt the labs that were drawn 5 days ago is good enough. Now you all know things can change in us within hour. They finally came and did put and IV in my arm but they aren't running fluids. I'm getting all my pain meds in shot form in the butt. This is the first time here that they've acted this way with me. Tink I have to say I'm not sure I'll get the care I need. I've only had 12 oz of fluids in 3 days and they aren't giving me IV fluids. Yes, I'm dealing with medical students, residents, and staff doctors. Yes, the President comes here, but he's special us regular peeps don't get the same care as him.
The GI doc on call came to see me, he feels the problem with my stomach is probably the muscle and skelatull (sp) and nothing that they can help me with. I think it's an adhesion from all my belly surgeries. They did decide to do a endosocpy tomorrow, the fact that I'm on oxycontin worries the GI and he feels that they'll not be able to sedate me well enough. So the anatheisologist will put me under for the scope. Because of this situation I'm not sure what time I'll go for the scope it will be when the anatheisologist is ready. I'm to have nothing by mouth after midnight. I'm not sure but I suspect after my scope tomorrow they'll send me home. I'll still be dehyrated, feeling crummy, and not have my pain under control. As the doctors are unwilling to check my inflammation markers. I can't begin to express my disappointment with the hospital this time.
Well that's the update on me, please pray for me as I'm truly very very ready to give up on trying to keep holding on and fighting to be there for my family.
