Just when things are going great and you don't have a care in the world (like right after a great birthday) you are grounded by a trial in your life. My trial this month is my Gall Bladder and Pancreas! Christian rushed me to the hospital Saturday night with the most pain I have ever felt in my life!!! I can honestly say that I would rather go through labor 20 times over than feel what I felt that night.
The Doctors decided to do a procedure called an ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography). This procedure is to get out the stones that are located in my Bile Duct. They go through my throat, then down into my stomach and then to the Bile Duct to pull the stones and sludge out of there. Everything went well with that procedure and they gave me wonderful drugs so I don't remember a thing!!!
Well, after the ERCP yesterday they told me to rest and then I would be discharged the next day. Unfortunately I have had a lot more pain and nausea and vomiting so they drew some more blood to find out that my Amylase and Lipase (my Pancreas enzymes) were critically elevated. Which is NOT GOOD! So I am still in the hospital with NO food or drink and a lot of pain medicine. The only thing we can do is wait it out, and hopefully things will get better.
Christian is being such a great husband and father right now and I know he is getting Mucho blessings right now. I just wanted to thank all those people who have helped with the kids and have brought food over. I have been stressed about things at home and it is nice to know that the most important people in my life are taken care of. I feel so helpless here in the hospital.
