So I had an exciting day yesterday. And unfortunately it is the only thing going on around here to blog about.
I got to spend the day at doctors offices and the ER. And it wasn't for my kids, which is the good news. I woke up at 5am wed morning with horrible stomach pains. I went to the bathroom because I thought maybe I was going to be sick, but then couldn't get up off the floor because I hurt so incredibly bad. So I sat there for over an hour and I think I dozed off. But in the morning it wasn't much better, so Ben made me call the doctor.
No, I am no good at taking medically care of myself. Isn't that a normal Mom Trait? My kids all have their scheduled appts and take any medicine right on schedule and finish all of it (although that part I have to give credit to the Pharmacist in the family), the eat a pretty balanced diet and even chew a Flintstone every morning! But me? uh, not so much. Vitamins quit when I got to quit taking prenatals (which make me sick), and my diet.... lets just say "yea, I need to be on one!"
So I was procrastinating to call the doc. For several legitimate reasons, I feel. #1 is that she is in south Tulsa and I found out is only working on fridays now. and #2 is that I was kinda waiting around to see if it was a huge gas pain or something! How embarrassing would that be??? ("Hi doc, I have this really bad stomach pain, oh,.... excuse me... its all better now")
Anyway, I found a doc (Dr Yancy Galutia) here in town and REALLY liked him. (He told me he would pray for me and did a wonderful follow-up call personally this morning) He did x-rays, and blood work and all kinds of other things and thought it was my appendix. So he sent me to the hospital to get a CT scan. I had to go in thru the ER to get that done. So, I was pleasantly surprised with the efficiency of St John Owasso. They were very nice and pretty fast, all things considered. I got in, triaged, evaluated, ct scan done and discharged all in about 2 hours.
So it apparently WASN'T my appendix. But they don't know what it is. And yes, I say IS, because it still hurts. Granted, not near as bad, but painful none the less. I did find out, via CT Scan that I have cysts on my ovaries. I didn't realize that that is almost "normal" for most women. And that might be the source of the pain. So I guess I will take it day by day and just sit back and be thankful to God that I am not in the hospital recovering from an appendectomy, or worse, exploratory surgery.
