I am glad this holiday is over because that now means we are through Mother's and Father's day and I won't have to think about them till next year and by then hopefully I will be pregnant with baby C. On Mother's Day our church had all the mother's congregate at the front of church while we prayed. I think I was one of 10 women who were still seated...I felt awesome. They did the same thing for Father's Day today but they also played a slideshow of pictures of all the father's at our church.
Tomorrow I have an Upper GI scheduled to find out the source of blood. I think I puke more than the average person but that was the first time blood ever came up.
Last year around this time I was having my Upper Endoscopy because I had puked EVERYTHING I ate for almost a whole month. Zofran became my new best friend halfway into the month. It was a great weight loss plan but not so good for having any energy at all or being able to work efficiently. Thankfully I was one of two women at my job and I was really close to my coworker. Anyways they told me they couldn't really figure out what was wrong with me.
They did however run a biopsy and print out a sheet of pictures and a description of what they found. I took this information and plugged it into Dr. Google and came up with my own diagnosis. The sad thing is I then went to my Dr. and he agreed that was probably what was wrong...Go ahead and give me my M.D. thank you very much. I have a hiatal hernia. I have a schatzki's ring. They told me this on my picture sheet. This shows I have had acid reflux that has gone untreated for years and finally it got so bad I had a allergic reaction in my throat. The biopsy found Eosinophilic esophagitis. Go ahead and try to say that three times. I dare you to try and say it once.
The only thing they started treating me for was the EE. I had to spray flonase into my THROAT 2 times a day and I couldn't eat or drink anything for 4 hours after that. NASTY stuff. Yea so I kind of suck at taking medication. It lasted about 2 weeks until I could eat again. I was also put on Omeprazole. I take 2 tablets twice a day. Well I am supposed to...I try to. I have to take it 30 minutes before a meal. Do you always know when you will eat 30 minutes later? Neither do I.
So wish me luck for tomorrow that this time I won't have to diagnose myself.
