☕Weekend Coffee Share☕

Welcome &byladies and gents to this week’s coffee share. It’s going to be a quick one for two reasons: 1) I’m typing this on my phone, so my apologies for any errors and 2) I’m in the hospital.

So let’s just jump right into it. I was supposed to be participating in several challenges NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo as well as an Instagram challenge and I was ready – for the most part.

Anyway Wednesday, November 1 rolls around and I’m awakened around 3am with pain in my abodomen. I rule it as gas and take something for it. It doesn’t work. And it gets worse. I head off to Urgent Care and leave horribly disapponted in their inability or unwillingness to help. I go back home and after a while I decide I have to get this looked at properly. The pain is so bad I can’t even stand up straight.

Get to the hospital and they are on it. Within 6 hours the doctors have an idea, but need to consult a gastroenterologist  first. Well, according to all involved I had not only a bowel blockage but a twisted colon too.

They admit me for observation and to try one other thing. The other thing didn’t work. And head down for a flouroscopy not as uncomfortable as a colonoscopy, so I hear. After that I head straight off to surgery to be disected and put back together again.

I’ll be away from the interwebs at least until this time next week. Because well i’ll still be in the hospital and it’s not real easy typing a blog post on your phone.

So till then!

  1. P.S. I’m feeling so much better.

      Hi Karen and thanks for the well wishes. It was definitely hair raising. But once we found out what the problem was some of the anxiety subsided. I am feeling a better. I can’t wait to get to 100%. I’m tired of being in the bed most of the day.

        Recuperation is so boring!

      Thanks Lalia! So far so good. I was discharged on Wednesday. So, glad to see the familiar four walls of my bedroom.

      Thank you for the well wishes. And as a retired RN you know the heeling process. I was discharged a couple of days earlier because they said I was progressing pretty fast. Feeling better, but still there a moments when I’m just a blob in my bed.

    Wow, that’s awful! Though your PS “I’m feeling so much better” is great. Keep healing, and I hope you continue to feel better.
