Christmas Aftermath

Came home from the hospital on the Christmas Eve afternoon, did well, then got quite ill, thought I was having a heart attack, had Mac call an ambulance.  They were quick, took all my vitals, no attack.  At the hospital a Cat scan was done.  They called my surgeon who was sure it was gas, but decided to keep me in the hospital overnight as a precaution.  The surgeon came too see me on Christmas Day and assured me the pain was normal, painful, but normal.  So I came home, the daughter and husband cooked Christmas dinner and we opened presents.
Our daughter had to leave yesterday morning to return to Japan.
I'm still struggling with pain and I'm going in to see my primary care doctor this afternoon.
Getting better, but oh I wish it was all done.

Got some wonderful presents and will talk about them later.
Looking forward to a new year.

  9. I am so sorry to hear that you had to go back to the hospital. I hope that the pain eases soon. It must have been difficult for daughter to go back when you aren't feeling well. I hope she had a safe journey back. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time with her. Hope you feel better soon!

  25. Hoping you are doing better. Scary when we realize we aren't infallible. Something I've been dealing with myself lately. By the way...Wild Bill got a clean PET can on Dec 21st with minimal cancer activity and no longer has to do chemo!
