Missed reading all my favorite blogs for their updates.
But most of all I miss my husband, my best friend..
I had to take my guy to the hospital on Saturday and leave him there.
He had been home for a couple of days from work last week with what we thought was the flu .
Then he became dizzy and fell and ended up hitting his head on the basement floor.
So off to the emergency room on Saturday Morning we go.
The Dr on duty at the hospital came in our cubicle and knew right away that my guy was anemic.
Blood work followed and 3 pints of blood was ordered. His red blood level was down to five pints, where 12 is normal for a man. Oh my gosh, no wonder he passed out.
After numerous tests, it appears that my guy has an ulcer about the size of Rhode Island,.
Biggest they have ever seen at this hospital, .Because of it's size, the Dr took a biopsy of the ulcer and then ordered a cat scan of his abdomen..
The results from the xray of the head, the abdomen and the biopsy of the ulcer and stomach wall, just trickled in. My guy was not a happy camper, he wanted to go home.
But since he came in on the weekend, things moved very slowly and as many of us know in these types of situatios, waiting is the hardest part..
The glances that the staff gave us were not encouraging and that made us worry more.
Finally yesterday afternoon, his hospitalist (head Dr) came in smiling. "No Cancer!"
Big heavy sigh of relief for sure. He was released an hour later and I have him home with me resting nicely.
He does need to rest for a week or so and also will have to give up his over ten year addition to popping aspirin.without the aspirin, the stomach will heal the ulcer and he should be fine. He doesn't even have to watch his diet..
After seeing a couple of his new Dr's next week for follow up, we should know more about how long it will take to get his blood levels back to normal and his ulcer healed..
Have got to go, my main guy is cleaning out the pantry.
Oh dear, maybe this is the hard part.
I think this sitting around is starting to drive him nuts!
Thanks everyone for listening.
