last night i ended up being taken to the E.R. by my 2 sisters because Denise though for sure i had a hernia. she scared me so i went. we were there from 8pm to 3:30am. i had labs drawn and a cat scan of my lower abdomen. the results of the cat scan showed a fluid filled mass which had formed under my skin but outside of my abdomen and will have to be aspirated with a guided needle under fluoroscopy. instead of just doing it last night, the bastard E.R. doc sent me home and told me to make an appointment with a surgeon for weds.
so weds. @ 2pm i will see the surgeon and hope that he takes care of it asap. it feels like it has grown and has become more painful. i asked him.. "what if it ruptures?" and he said he didn't think it would. he also stated that he didn't think it was infected as my white blood count was normal and i didn't have a fever.... so, i axe myself, what's in there, jello?
when i was 15 years old, i had an abscess on the outside of my uterus the size of a grapefruit which did burst and i nearly died. i spent 6 weeks in the hospital. because of that, i am a bit worried about it rupturing and if it does i will sue the shit out of the E.R. doc for sending me home like he did. the bastard.
so today i took it easy and layed low... i let Diane and Joanne do things for me as it hurts more. we ended up watching a cuppla movies this afternoon and tonight... it was comfy. I'm not afraid to have this done, i just want it to be over. Jo leaves early Friday morning and i SO don't want her to go. i have enjoyed her here even with all the palaver with our other sister. i feel emotions building at the thought of her leaving. it has been such a comfort and strength for me having her here.
well..... the 2 Vicodin i took are kicking in so i am going to bed now. i will let you know what happens tomorrow (weds.)
