Adventures in My Bowels! :)

31 March 2008
I want to thank all of you for praying and probably fasting for me this past week. I think that your prayers and fasts helped a lot. Here is an update of what happened last week.

On the Friday before I posted about myself bleeding, I started to feel like crap. Pain was coming back, but it was not too bad. I sort of ignored it. Then on that Saturday, I still did not feel up to par. I was sleeping a lot (about 15 hours a night) and then take tons of naps during the day. I never felt like my old self. Then on Sunday, I started to excrete blood and it was not fun at all. I was in extreme pain and at some points I could barely move. That pretty much wraps up the event before my original post.

On Monday, I tried to get into the doctor's office, but I could not. There were no slots with other doctors and my doctor had surgery all that day. I went to school and did my best to be my happy self. It was kind of working, but people noticed that something was wrong. Then came Tuesday. I still could not get a doctor's appointment, but the good news was that I was able to get in on Wednesday. Tuesday was hell. I hurt so bad and I just wanted to rip out my intestines. Then Wednesday finally came! I went to the doctor and he gave me some new medications that are more intensive. There are also a lot more side-effects with these ones. One of them is insomnia, if you have not noticed from my random postings and facebooking times.

I am generally feeling much better, but I am still in a lot of pain. The doctor told me that I am having another flare up and it is on a worse level than the last one I had since I am bleeding. The bleeding has generally stopped. It only comes every now and then--it mostly depends on what I eat. My bowels basically have adventures everyday and I have to go on a ride with them. ;) Hopefully I will start to feel up to speed and go do what I normally do.

Thanks again for all of your prayers and fast! You guys are great! :)

Life is good... :)

PS Whenever I am sick or cannot go 80's Dancing, I crave it. I have been craving it since I started bleeding. That is probably why I posted tons of Madonna's music videos and One Night in Bangkok. I love the 80's...

Glad you're feeling better! Love the video's you posted. The Dancing is....HOT! I agree.

And the insomnia thing, I read and watch infomercials. It's great for catching up on all the books I want to fill my head with.
