Hospital "Again"

Isn't my little boy the cutest little thing? What an attitude!

Well it’s been awhile since I’ve checked in; it’s been a pretty busy past couple of weeks. After my trip to Michigan I started experiencing a lot of severe pain mainly in my hip and back. I had called into my doctor’s office on the 5th and they prescribed a pain medication for me, and it was not even touching my pain. So on Monday the 10th I called into work because I was in so much pain that I couldn’t stand it; so after that I called my doctors office again and she told me that I would have to have a doctor look at me to see what was going on. So I woke up my husband and he took me up to the hospital. Well they ended up keeping me until Thursday late afternoon, to run some tests and try to figure out what is going on. They were giving me morphine for the pain (and yes I was still in pain). They gave me an x-ray, a MRI, a CAT scan, and blood tests to try to find out what was wrong. I have a bacteria infection in my bladder, a bleeding cist on my ovary and either arthritis in my hip/back or a sciatic nerve. I had to go see my OB yesterday for an ultra sound and they found fibroid tumors in my uterus, but she said that it isn’t bad enough yet for surgery. I have to go see my cancer doctor next Thursday at 3:00, and then go to the hospital to see the rheumatoid specialist at 4:20; I think that they are going to give me cortisone shot in my hip to help to relive the pain. I can’t wait. It hurts soooo bad. Working is almost impossible; I’ve had to go home early every day this week so far. I wonder how much longer I will have a job. By the time I get home every day it’s everything that I can do to stay awake.

My mother took my two youngest children to the race track on Saturday evening, they had a blast. They got to go down to the winners circle because their uncle Jeff won, so they all got their picture taken.

I’ll check in again soon.
