Monday

  • I've got two medical tests this week: a pelvic ultrasound, which I had today, and an abdominal CT scan tomorrow. I've been having abdominal pain and am looking about 5 months pregnant. I was told to drink 32 ounces of water an hour before my appointment. Well, I guess I overdid it because by the time I got called into the examination room I looked like my 3 year old when she has to go really, really bad!
  • Tomorrow I've got to drink some disgusting barium stuff that they have the audacity to call Vanilla Smoothie. I hope I can keep it down. I hope to have some news as to what is going on in my body in a few days.
  • It's over 100 degrees here today, not counting heat index. It was equally as hot this past weekend, but it didn't discourage those silly people standing outside watching the men in ugly pants walking at the big, big deal sporting event that was held in my city. This event happened across the street from the hospice offices and it was a major pain in the butt. I'm glad it's over and I can make a left hand turn out of our parking lot again.
  • I love my 7:30 am- 3:00 pm schedule.

Ugh. So sorry to hear this. Maybe if you breathe through your mouth and don't take a whiff of the smoothie it will go down, ah, smoother?

Praying that all goes well with the tests.

Hope you soon find out what's going on. Could it be stress related??? Glad to hear you sound more peaceful with your new job and new hours. Peace, Iris.
