Quick update

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Update: Thanks for the prayers. I got in with a very nice doctor who seemed really knowledgeable. (I don't have a primary doc here yet--shame on me.) He thinks I have salmonella. He ordered tests, and prescribed antibiotics, rest and liquid. If I do not improve asap, he will admit me to the hospital. I really hope to improve immediately.

I have gotten so many kind e-mails asking how am feeling. Thank you. I cannot answer them individually right now so I wanted to update here quickly. I was doing better yesterday and even started to resume a somewhat normal life. Then in the middle of the night, the stomach illness started all over again with a vengeance. I have a doctor appointment this morning. I will admit I am a little scared that something is really wrong. I am also scared the doctor will prescribe Nexium and send me home. Something is not right with my stomach. I so appreciate your continued thoughts and prayers. Please pray that the doctor finds the cause and treats me appropriately. Thank you, friends. I will update when I can.

  2. I'm so sorry that you're feeling badly again, but I will definitely keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I too have had my fair share of stomach issues for the past 5 months, so I certainly empathize with you. Although it is scary, you just want to know why it's happening. Best of luck at your doctor's appointment today!

  10. Kim I do pray right now the dr is lead my wisdom and you are treated accurately and with a quick correct diagnosis as well as proper medication and I pray you heal speedily. Fear not sweet friend. The Lord is with you, when you get afraid try to find one scripture and meditate on it like you did when you flew on the trip to visit your friends. Psalm 91- He is your refuge. abide in His safe shadow today.
    Love'Connie

  20. Oh...I'm so glad that they think they might have the answer and are treating you. Feel better soon. We are all thinking of you.

    Five us of here have the swine flu. It has varied in severity from person to person. Pete and the girls have been really miserable. Hannah has had terrible hallucinations and almost delirium. She and Emma have had 104-105 fevers which makes them feel icky, too. Emma has some asthma with hers. It seems to be lasting a week before feeling much better. Christopher and I seem to be faring better and poor Matt just wants to move out...he's the only one here who doesn't have it. Hopefully, by Monday, we will all be a lot better.

    I hope you are better TODAY!
