Day 209

The nurse didn't listen to me when I told her which vein to NOT use. It REALLY hurt.
Mad face because the IV hurt so much.
Cold feets.
Scary IV bag.
That's me. Yep.
Am I breathing? Actually, yes. I am really dizzy and snoozy from the drugs they gave me, and I don't remember anything about the procedure itself, and I didn't die, and so far I'm not coughing up blood, so that's good.
Preliminary results showed gastritis and esophagitis, both kind of a "duh", if you consider how many pills I swallow in a week. The doctor took some samples of my stomach to send in for biopsy... have to wait two weeks for the results. On to my next appointment in 2 hours. Then I can EAT, DRINK, and SLEEP!

*Update - second appointment went well, and instead of just an ultrasound of the gallbladder, it was an ultrasound of pretty much all of my organs. Good. Will know results of that by Wednesday, at the latest.
My friend and I went to Tropical Smoothie Cafe afterwords, where I devoured glass after glass of ice water, a supremely delicious turkey sandwich, and a make-your-taste buds-dance smoothie.


  1. wow Bonnie! I hope this all passes quickly! As many injections as I have had in my life you would think that needles wouldn't bother me but, I HATE them... but, tattoo needles are ok LOL!!! :) Hope you get well soon! GIANT HUGS!

  2. oh I love hospitals. I'm not sure why....strange I know.

    I've got my fingers crossed for clear results!!
