In case you are wondering

Hi Everyone Hi Doctor Nick (You'd get it if you watched The Simpsons.)

In any case Hi Everyone. I'm sorry that I haven't been posting. I haven't been up to specs lately. For the last couple of months, I have been in some pain. Whether it has been discomfort, or full blown-I want to rip you to shreds and everyone else kind of pain. Not to mention some tenderness. Actually I've felt this pain long before the two months. I thought it would go away (and it did for awhile), but now its back and it's a worse. I think its from a combination of stress and neglect (I should have had this looked at in the beginning). Sunday when I spat up a little blood, that is when I decided to call for an appointment. The pain is located on the right side of my belly, in my abdominal area.

I went and saw a doctor yesterday. She told me that she doesn't think it's anything serious, but like I told her I am not good at describing how I feel. My doctor told me to drink Metamucil. Then she had me go and take a urine test, and for fun and torture some bloodwork. I swear, whenever I go there I get blood drawn, they can never get any from my right arm. Even with the wiggle and jiggle. So the left arm got some torture as well. Guess what one of my arms is going to be tortured even more, because tomorrow, I am going to have a CT Scan on my abdomen and my pelvis. There going to put an IV in my arm(first time for everything), and they said that it may burn a little at first. Needles and burning (poor arm). I also found out that I have to drink some funky liquid, that taste somewhat good (at least that is what the woman on the phone told me today). Then I have to wait an hour before it is absorbed throughout my body. Also I have to lie on a table for about 30 minutes while they perform the scan. Did I mention that I hate going to the Doctor?

Honestly I am a little nervous. I don't know what to expect, and I don't have anyone coming with me tomorrow. I do have someone thinking about me and lighting a candle for me though. That makes me feel better. Let me just say, that this isn't how I wanted to start my November, and my end to October....That wasn't good either.

Time to go have to get my Metamucil on! Wish me luck!

P.S. I haven't forgot about pimping you in the pimp joint Chris. I was going to do it tonight, but blogger won't let me upload any photos

Oh hon, I hope you'll be alright. You're so brave to go alone. Let us know what they say. Otherwise, I'll sit here and be worried.

You have more than ONE person thinking of you. I am glad that you are getting it checked out thoroughly. Most of the time, the worrying about it is much worse than what you really will have to deal with. Too bad we can't just turn that off, eh?

Keep us posted.

Jeff is right on the money.. the worry is always the pitts!!
Just focus on the fact that the doctor didn't think it was anything too serious.. all the tests are to confirm what he/she thought. But do let us know the results when you do...
I wish you didn't have to go alone, I'm the biggest scaredy-cat alive and it's always comforting if someone is there to keep you calm. we'll all worry for you.. be good and do the tests!
