Procedure Outcome

The last 2 weeks have been pretty tough for me. Being sick is not fun anyways but being a mom makes it really hard. I felt so guilty not be able to take care of my own kids, clean my own house and do all the other things that are my responsibilities as a wife and stay at home mom. Last Sunday night and Monday morning was not fun AT ALL!!! I had to drink 4 liters of the worst tasting stuff ever! Its not just the taste that was HORRIBLE but the feel of it in my mouth YUCK!! The best way I can think of to describe it is slimy and greasy. Makes me wanna gag just thinking of it!! I hope I never have to go that again!! I was so worried they wouldnt be able to do my procedure because I threw up ALOT of it. Luckily they still did it. I was so nervous when I got there. After filling out all the papers they took me back and I laid in the bed and got all the IVs started. After about 10 minutes my nurse wheeled me down to met the specialist. He talked to me for a few minutes and the nurse put something in my iv and the next thing I know I was in a different room and a different nurse was with me and soon after Kamrin came walking in. It was a comfort to see him come in!! After waking up more we went to a room to talk to the doctor. He came in and told me I didnt have Crohns or any other disease like that! YAY!! I was so relieved!! Then he told me I need to eat a high fiber diet and supplement and he gave me a pill for stomach and intestine spasms. I had felt better off and on the next few days after that. Thursday I felt yucky again so I called my regular doc and he had me go in Friday to draw blood to run a bunch of tests. When I got there the nurse took my temp and asked how long I had the fever for. I told her I hadnt had one at all. She looked at me like I was stupid and told me I had one then. My doctor later told me my white blood count was high and I had an infection in my stomach and intestines. He told me he still doesnt know if the infection was caused from why my pain started or if the infection was why I had pain to begin with. I guess only time will tell. Im just so thankful its not Crohns or anything like that!!!! Today I have felt better then I have in 2 weeks so looks like the antibiotics are working so far!!
