Gastroenterologist is a Long Word

Nov 14 2009

It's barely passed noon and I've had two accidents today, or rather they were in the middle of the night. It's no fun at all. I hate not being in control of my bodily functions. My mom has been wonderful though and has helped me get cleaned up and helped me shower too. Most the time I'm doped up on the morphine and I'm barely able to stand up, let alone clean myself. 

My GI came in to see me again today. He was able to compare the CT scans from my previous hospital visit and this one and the inflammation has moved down and gotten a little worse. So, he's continuing my steroids, antibiotics, probiotics, PPN (nutrition thing, because my body isn't absorbing anything), and some other medicine that I don't know what it is. I can't really remember.

My two teachers haven't responded back to my e-mail and it's made me a bit frustrated. I'd really like to know what I will be able to do for the remainder of the semester. I have already began to do the work for all my other classes and am getting myself prepared to have to do everything online. It's going to be a challenge, but will be worth it in the long run.

I got some morphine about fifteen minutes ago, it's finally starting to get to the pain in my stomach so I'm going to try to get some sleep to help it as well. Might edit this with more information later if there is any. I'm feeling better than I was yesterday.

Glad to hear you're feeling a little better. Your story about the tiolet and trash can/puke bucket gave me flashbacks! It certainly makes a memory. I'm glad you have your Mom with you to help you thru this. She sounds like a wonderful person. smilies/smiley.gif
