Okay, ya'll I'm here, but my belly button is killing me! For that matter, so is my shoulder and my ribs and I'm having a hard time breathing from the gas they put in my tummy. Throat is killing me from the intubation too. Ah well....it should be gone soon.
RuthieRN....your question yesterday: Tomatoes and peaches. I'm not a big peach eater, but if they are fresh....oh yummy! Strawberries, too but it's so hard to find good ones anymore.
JulieLPN....hubbies complaining? That doesn't ever happen, does it? LOL
Netters....I hope you have a FABULOUS time! and thank you for thinking of me!
Suzy...Hope you got some good studying done. I can't believe how much I have to know in my Nutrition class for the first exam Tuesday.
Fairy...thanks for thinking of me yesterday! Your day didn't sound like very much fun either!
Tweeters...where in the beegeebers were you yesterday on the thread?
Leslie.....*sigh* how I wish I would be looking forward to pain free days, but it doesn't look like it anytime soon.
zambezi.....a party? Where? When? LOLOLOL!
Melissa....and Suzanne...thanks for thinking of me this morning. I sure could use the hugs.
Here's what's going on: Had the surgery and he didn't see anything in my pelvis that would be causing pain. We are just waiting for him to get the hysteroscopy results but we aren't hopeful that anything would be found there. I am discouraged beyond belief. I cannot live with the pain like it was...I couldn't even concentrate in class Thursday night it was so bad. I have to go back to get the results in two weeks and if there is nothing, will call my GP and let her do the chest x-rays she had planned and probably end up back at the GI dr. for a full colonoscopy. Now, I am thinking since the pain can be all the way up under my ribcage (near the transverse colon) that maybe it is IBS? I just know it has to be taken care of before Clinicals start or I might as well give up now.
I decided for my descriptive essay to do it about the first time I saw Trey's face. I can interject humor into it then because if you've had a baby, you know all the buildup and then what you get isn't quite the beautiful thing you expected. My first sentence (so far) is: "From the moment I found out I was pregnant with my first child, anticipation to see what he would look like ruled many of my thoughts." See where I'm going with it? I think it will be fun and I have many ideas running through my head.
Todays goal is to get at least a rough draft of that done and to get my Nutrition notes copied. This test on Tuesday is going to be a BEAR! It's so hard when it is the first one and you haven't had that instructor before, because you don't know what the questions are going to be like, etc. I'll be happy as long as I don't mess up my chances of having an A. Anything below a "C" and I would guess I'd have a very hard time pulling the grade up with the four other tests.
Funny, but I feel a little violated, ya know? I mean, I know it was all clinical and stuff, but the fact that I was sound asleep (the anesthesiologist sang to me as I was falling asleep...he's just wonderful...did all my epidurals) and people were spreading my legs and poking around is a little disconcerting.
Alright, I'm done for now....gotta catch up (and that could take all morning). LOL.....Bry is taking the kids to his moms so I can study, but until then, I'm playing here. He leaves tomorrow morning for Hartford, CT for the week.
hugs all around.....
