Why me?

Well as you all know, I have been very sick this last month.  Last Friday everything started all over again.  My diarrhea and vomiting came back.  Saw my doctor on Monday.  He put me back on antibiotics, referred me to a Gastroenterologist and set me up for an ultrasound of my abdomen.  On Thursday this week, I had my ultrasound which was very painful as I was completely full of gas.  Glad I didn't pass any during the test!!  LOL!!
Yesterday I saw my doctor again and he had the results of  my ultrasound.  It shows that my gallbladder is constrained and the walls are thickening.  Which means for me that the gallbladder is not working any more.  So he has recommended that I have surgery to have it removed.  But he has not set up the surgery yet.   Because he wants me to see the Gastro doctor first and make sure that nothing else is going on with my stomach and intestines before having surgery.  I see the Gastro on Tuesday.  I sure hope nothing else is going on.  I'm very tired and sick of being sick!!!  I just want to get better!!

Bad 2 weeks

I am starting to think that someone doesn't like me.  LOL!!!  Two weeks ago I fell and ripped my lower right leg from the knee down to mid shin apart.  Then it got infected.  Went to the doctor and put me on antibiotics.  Then last week I started to get 102 temps with severe diarrhea and vomiting. Which I went to my doctor on Monday and he told me that I now have a infection in my stomach and put me on a different antibiotic.  OMG!!!!  Is all this really happening to me????  I am now wondering what else is going to happen to me.  You know that everything happens in "3's" and it's about that time this week for something else to happen.  I surely hope not!!!!  I don't think that I can take any thing else happening to me.

I am just now starting to feel a little better today.  Leg is healing nicely.  Of course, it's at that itchy pealing stage.  And I am now just starting to eat real food today.  I lost 12 lbs in 5 days.  Needed to loose some, but not this way!!!  LOL!!!  I am really tired and know that it will take another week or two before I am totally back up to par.

But my youngest DD has been the best little nurse anyone could ask for.  She is constantly checking up on me and even cooking me grilled cheese sandwich.  She gets my drinks and makes sure that I have everything that I need.  She's going to make a "Super Mom" someday!!!

Well back to bed for me. :(
