Welcome &byladies and gents to this week’s coffee share. It’s going to be a quick one for two reasons: 1) I’m typing this on my phone, so my apologies for any errors and 2) I’m in the hospital.
So let’s just jump right into it. I was supposed to be participating in several challenges NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo as well as an Instagram challenge and I was ready – for the most part.
Anyway Wednesday, November 1 rolls around and I’m awakened around 3am with pain in my abodomen. I rule it as gas and take something for it. It doesn’t work. And it gets worse. I head off to Urgent Care and leave horribly disapponted in their inability or unwillingness to help. I go back home and after a while I decide I have to get this looked at properly. The pain is so bad I can’t even stand up straight.
Get to the hospital and they are on it. Within 6 hours the doctors have an idea, but need to consult a gastroenterologist first. Well, according to all involved I had not only a bowel blockage but a twisted colon too.
They admit me for observation and to try one other thing. The other thing didn’t work. And head down for a flouroscopy not as uncomfortable as a colonoscopy, so I hear. After that I head straight off to surgery to be disected and put back together again.
I’ll be away from the interwebs at least until this time next week. Because well i’ll still be in the hospital and it’s not real easy typing a blog post on your phone.
So till then!
- P.S. I’m feeling so much better.
