Hey guys. I’m pretty exhausted and delirious writing this now, but I’ll try my best to make sense. 😉
I am still in the hospital right now. It has been about a week and a half now. I was finally moved from a clear liquid diet to a somewhat normal diet to see how my body would respond. With a banana, a potato and some puréed foods over 48 hours, that was enough to set me off again resulting in severe abdominal pain. My doctor was hoping to release me Tuesday, but with how bad I was feeling, he wanted to keep me in patient.
I have finished the C diff medication and now they are thinking it is just a small bowel partial blockage. Since things are moving through my system, they do not want to operate. While this is good news, it is also pretty defeating since they can’t figure out what has caused this blockage. The plan is to get stable enough to go home and then complete a new endoscopy and colonoscopy in the next week. So far they haven’t been able to keep my comfortable and out of pain for very long. While I hate being in the hospital, going home scares me more. I am nervous to have another flare up and end up back in the ER for the 4th time. So the doctors are being extra careful this time around. They did put the NG tube back in Tuesday night to help relieve some of the stomach pains. So for now the plan is to hopefully get off the tube tomorrow and back onto a clear liquid diet and stay on that even while I am home because my stomach can’t handle much else. We think liquids are getting through, but the food (even bland soft and puréed foods) is not passing through my system which results in it building up and causing so much pain and nausea.
So basically we are back at square one. We are in the process of getting more opinions from different specialists so we will see how that goes.
Thank you all so so so much for all the thoughts and prayers. I really need them right now.
Me with all the baby food. Lol.
My husband brought my puppies to see me yesterday morning. I’m the last couple weeks, they haven’t seen me much. They both went crazy.
Sweet little Riley climbed out the window and just clung onto me. It was the sweetest reunion ever.
I hope you guys have a great day. I’ll keep you updated when there are more answers. Until then I’m just trying now to go crazy in the hospital. Love you all.
