I have been sick over a week now. I was having some stomach troubles, and went to the doc Wednesday. They gave me some medications and said I should be feeling better within 2 days. Thursday during work I had a cyst rupture. I don't know if any of you have had this happen but its wretched and it hurts like a mother. I rushed to the hospital where I had to wait 4 hours in the waiting room. How awful is that? The most ridiculous thing I have ever dealt with. I spent the time when the pain is at its worst hunched over in a waiting room chair. By the time they called my name I wasn't even able to stand anymore they had to put me in a wheelchair. Needless to say the pain meds they gave me were a lifesaver I was about ready to wring my own neck to put myself out of misery. 

I was released late thursday/early friday and spent the day in bed drugged beyond comprehension...then the stomach pain started again but much much worse. I had to go back to the hospital on Sunday because it had become unbearable and it turns out the medications given to me were making my stomach issues worse and the cyst rupture had irritated my gallbladder. There was some talk of maybe having to remove it and I was not hearing any of that. Plenty of tests were run and I am due for a return visit tonight to make sure things are progressing as they should. So that is where I have been. I haven't been able to read any blogs since Thursday afternoon and I know I am so very behind. Just wanted to give an update! I'll leave you with some pics from my visits...

The awful stuff I had to drink before my CT 

The docs all loved my socks 

This is what happens when the nurse can't find a vein
 BTW it sucks to dip into your savings to pay for hospital visits even with insurance. I had to waste a lot of money this past week but I will be moving to my parents at the end of the month so hopefully I will be back in my budget soon.
