Just thought I would give her a call since we keep missing each other. She said she is at the hospital.She said she's having a lot of tummy pain so please keep her in your prayers. She is having such a rough time.

Barb was just seeing some doctors, she has *not* been admitted to the hospital. She had some unusually severe pain in the left abdomen she needed checked out - they've given her some more intense antibiotics & I'm sure she'll be around tomorrow after she gets some rest. You guys know how exhausting pain & doctors are!

I don't think you freaked anyone out you didn't say she *was* admitted you said she went there. No one assumed you meant she was admitted.
MCTD had a high positive ANA of 1:2560 with high positive anti -rnp using antibiotic therapy and now pretty much better. With now a negative ANA and all labs no more RNP antibody or Pain

Hi Everyone:

Thanks for your well wishes and prayers. Well I've got a very rare UTI infection. It's an infection that they normally only see in children. Last Tuesday they sent me home with antibiotics and wasn't sure what I had. Friday they called and told me about the UTI infection. Today the doctor called again and said they tested the antibiotic I'm taking against the infection and it's resistant to it. So I had to go and pick up new meds, if this doesn't kill the infection I'll have to be admitted for IV vancomycin.

I'm been told I'm not to take my Monday dose of MTX cause the vancomycin makes it more potent. I'll also have to go to the hospital on Weds or Thurs and have labs done. It's possible my blood counts will drop from having MTX in my system.

On Friday I'm having another mediport implanted into my chest. I'll be at the hospital at 9:30 and get IV meds and pred. They'll take me down to the special procedures room and sedate me, (hopefully last time they didn't sedate me enough with my endoscopy) it should take about 2 hrs to do the procedure. I'll spend 2 hours in the hem/onc clinic recovering. I'll be very sore for several days, but it's certainly worth it. Last time I was in the hospital they had to stick me 28 times before they could get an iv started. I'm praying I have good success with this port. My first one I had in my chest for 3 years before it became infected. Anyway, I'll drop a note in next weekend and let you know how things are going.

Hope you all have had a good weekend.

Love,
Barb

Hi Barb,
 
You sure are dealing with an awful lot. My heart and prayers go out to you.  I sure hope this new port works well for you too.  I'm so glad you touched base with us. We think of you a lot. ((((hugs))))
