This week sucks

Early Monday morning (5 am), my husband woke with an intense pain in his left side. We waited until afternoon thinking that it was some sort of stomach bug, but when it didn’t get better and started to get worse, I made him call the doctor and off to the emergency room we ran. We spent from 3 pm to 11 with him getting tests to figure out what was going on and he is one sick man. It seems he has a severely inflamed gall bladder and they are doing more tests (they admitted him at 11 pm and I was falling apart from stress and needed to collect the girls from my mother’s house). If the tests come back positive, he’ll have the gall bladder removed. If not, they keep him until his white count goes down (at least I hope they keep him).

It is funny how different people deal with pain differently. I’ve grown pretty insensitive due to my chronic pains and what I’ve gone through that past two years. My husband has always been sort of a big baby and I think that is what threw me or I would have had him call the doctor sooner. They of course put him on the oncology floor (murphy’s law) and he is pretty sanguine and I always freak when he gets sick because it can bring on a seizure. You can tell, I’m a mess.

So, send hugs for my hubby (he is pretty comfortable at the moment, but still sick) and speak to whomever that this mystery gets solved.

Thank you everyone. Obviously all the good vibes from all over the country and world paid off. D did have the lapriscopy tonight and he is resting comfortably. I'm so glad that I had him call the doctor because his gall bladder was a mess.

Kaz, it is amazing surgery and he is due home tomorrow. Since he is a simple eater (meat and potatoes but more pasta than anything) he should do fine. Thanks for the heads up.

I think it was really difficult to watch him go through all this knowing about hospitals and illness so closely myself. He is a reall trooper and after 24 years we are so part of each other that I don't know what I would have done (coped, yes) if things weren't solved. So thank you all and hugs back at ya.

You are great friends.
Oh, R! I just read your LJ. I'm sorry you and hubby are having such a stressful time. My sister went through the whole gall bladder thing a few years ago. She's so much better now than before.

Here's a hug from me...
