ok, i was mildly frootlooped for a few days...but i owe that to starvation & lack of sleep. lol
doing better. tire easily but what the heck? right?
so i went to the ER monday after NOT having a BM for 9 days & increasing ab pain, fatigue & fever. 5 hours of hell waiting to get into the ER, ugh, and @ 12am was admitted.
CT scan & XRAYS showed i was FOS (let your imagination figure that funny one out!)
so with a small bowel obstruction i served 4 days inpatient.
no solids or liquids the 1st 3 days! i think that made me bonkers! no food + no sleep + no liquids=erin's a zombie.
loaded up w/ steroids IV / antibiotics/ pain med shots to the stomach (which worked quite well). had to tackle fevers, enemas, and being a pin cushion....but what can ya do. the blockage is slowly getting better.
very happy to be home, battling shakes & tremors & fevers still. fatigue is bad.
oh, the Promethius test showed i can up my Imuran! 75mg i can do now, i wasn't at therapeutic levels.
my GI doc and PCP were saints in the hospital.
that's about it. Ducky covered it all (thanks babe!) and thank you everybody for the well wishes.
i remember how to spell correctly (thank God) i was seriously stupid for a few days! forget where all my crap was...how to get around my house, shower, dress....i guess very disoriented.
so here's to better days.
i'll be reading posts & catching up.
