Hi everyone, it's really me, back home where I belong. Thank you all for the heartfelt good wishes.
So, CT results show that I was suffering from Diverticulitis, worse than ever before, so I am now on the list for a colonoscopy in the near future...
Meanwhile, I had no food, not even liquids for 2 days. The most I got was a 1/2 cup of ice chips. Not a nice way to lose weight!
After a morphine drip and IV antibiotics I was feeling much better, but had to wait on the results till my Dr. came in this morning at 7:30. He said I could go home, stick to a liquid diet and take my antibiotics. Best part is, while I was there, he also gave me the cortisone injection in my hip that we had scheduled for early March, so now I have no more arthritis/bursitis pain in my hip in additon to no more belly pain!
I've had a good hot shower and thrown all my clothes, including my jacket, in the washing machine in hopes of killing any germs I picked up in the hospital (Noro Virus in rampant there as well). I've manged to keep some soup down, and am now going to take a much needed nap after 2 nights of no sleep. Seeya later!
So glad they figured out the problem and that you are now home.
