Thanks everyone for all the kind words and prayers, it is much appreciated.
Couchtater, Yes, he has been surprisingly positive about the whole thing, and says that he doesn't want to be sick from radiation or chemo. He says he'd rather enjoy the last few months of his life with his family.
Luvzminis, I have not had an endoscopy, which is surprising to me, seeing as how I told the doctor months ago that I was having trouble with my stomach and she sent me to a gastro for a freaking colonoscopy! Now tell me if I'm crazy here, but I don't see WHAT looking up my rear end is going to tell you about my stomach...
I even told the gastro doc that my stomach wasn't right, and he said "well, she sent you here for a colonoscopy, so that's what we're gonna do". I'm thinking of calling a different gastro doc now, seeing as I no longer need a referral from my primary doc for a specialist. All I was told was that they found nothing on the colonoscopy, and that I just have IBS. Well.... how do they know what's wrong with my stomach if they never even checked it?! *shrugs*
Anyway back to the reason for my post.... I spoke to my dad's cousin, who is head of hospice care in our area and has been a nurse for many years, and she told me that my rib pain is probably coming from my bed. I told her I just got a new bed about a month or two ago and I got a firm mattress because that's what my chiropractor suggested. But then she asked if I'd had that problem BEFORE I got the bed, and I thought..... "No, never"..... so I guess I'll be buying a memory foam pad for the top and see how that goes.
Sorry to jump all over the place here, just a little anxious at the moment and I forget (thanks to fibro-fog) what I want to write next. Haha!
Anyway, let me stop rambling, and just say thank you all again! Hope you all have a wonderful day with no pain!
I know, I know, wishful thinking right? But a gal's gotta dream! :)
Lord, Please calm my heart & my soul today. So many things are out of my control and I need your love to soothe me and calm me. YOUR love lets me know it will be OK.
