ER I <3 U
Friday night I had the "opportunity" to go visit the nice people in the emergency room. My chest/abdomen started hurting Friday at work about 3:00 and it got steadily worse; by the time 9:00 rolled around I was pacing the floor pulling my hair out. A couple of our neighbors came over and took me to the hospital ER where they did some blood work, x-rays and ultrasounds to see if it was kidney stones or try and figure out exactly what it was. Results-- inconclusive. They gave me a heavy sedative and some prilosec and that has seemed to help, but next week I get to go have an endoscopy done to see if it is ulcers (again) or something else. Not sure all of what is involved, but if they figure out why this type of thing keeps happening, I am all in favor of doing whatever it takes. Maybe I can watch the video of my guts -- probably rated "R" for grossness.
