alot to say....

Whatever it is, it hurts...

Doctor is calling it an ulcer for now, and it hurts like crazy. They've almost ruled out gall bladder, ultrasound showed no stones, but because of my symptoms, I may have to go for another test on that. They took all of my blood (well, not literally) but I'm waiting on that to come back... I take lots of meds all day. I just want to be healthy, for my family, and for my sanity. If you're a praying person, then send some up please.... and for those of you who don't pray, I'll ask again that you do whatever you do when someone needs that extra bit of hope and encouragement...

Thanks

Thanks to my husband for being patient with me, and being a good dad and making sure my kids are happy all while mommy's sick. Thanks to the friend who sent me the card last week telling me she was pulling for me. Thanks to the friend who puts up with my whininess (is that a word? and if it is, is it spelled right?) on the Internet then phone, and even dealt with my bit&hiness. Thanks to my friend who "gets it" when it comes to my panic, and keeps me focused during the day with tweets and texts. Thanks to the friend who drove from her house tonight just to make sure I was ok, while her babies were at home with their gma watching over them while they slept. Thanks to my mom, for driving 2.5 hours at 5am to my house un-announced 3 times in the past 2 weeks to arrive in time to ride with me to take the kid to school, all to let me cry on her shoulder because I have no idea what's going on inside of me. Thanks to mom for also sitting with me while I was at a hospital having tests ran, because the doctors are trying to figure out what's going on... Thanks to my dad who's sat with me at the doctors office just like I was a little kid who needed their daddy.... because I did need him -and I needed him to reassure me that I wasn't crazy AND my doctor that I've never been a hypochondriac!! Thanks to both mom and dad, for tolerating my constant calls - and realizing that for once in my life I actually DO need them (until now I their was super independent daughter). Thanks to my brother, who has called multiple times every day for the past 3 weeks, just to check in on me. Thanks to my aunts and uncles who send me emails and prayers. Thanks to my mother in law and father in law for indulging my tearful moments. Thanks to the friend who I haven't seen in YEARS for offering up her husband to come over and baby sit because he just happens to work in my town....and I've never even met him (love you and you know who you are).... thanks to all my bloggy friends and other friends who've given me a nudge of encouragement while I'm feeling down.

Just wanted to basically say thanks. I've been down, and you realized it, and I needed you - and you all just make it easier to deal with. I don't think it gets said often enough, by me, and in general. Family that sticks by, friends who see you through, and bloggy friends I've never even met are great to have, lately I've felt like life was the shoe and I am the bug - and I'm getting stomped.

I hope they figure out what is wrong and you feel better soon. My husband had is gallbladder out a couple of months ago. They didn't confirm it was his gallbladder till they did a hyda scan. He had no stones either.
