How I feel about it all: awakemneh
Soundtrack: None. Hannah's still sleeping, poor thing
Last night I was seriously Not Feeling Well. Dizziness, nausea, pain in right side under ribs...sounded just like something gallbladder related to me (and to patchfire), who's Been There, Done That. So, i_am_a_hannah and I trudged off to the ER in the rain. Three or so hours, two X-rays, one urine sample, and a vial of blood later, they say, "oh, we don't know what is, we couldn't find anything". So I have an order for Pepcid, which is silly because there's nothing wrong with my stomach (they say it could be an ulcer, though, so I'll take the bloody stuff), and an order for an ultrasound (which I'll also do because I've had this right-sided thing for a while and want to make completely sure it's NOT gallbladder).

The funny thing is, I was almost disappointed. Because if it had been the gallbladder thing, I could have had some time off work while I had surgery and got better. Why, yes, I am stressed out, thanks for asking. :/ I AM missing a day of work because of all of this, but that's not good because I've no sick time currently and had to use holiday time. Bleh.

The good thing is that my i_am_a_hannah is (tied for) the loveliest, most caring daughter in the world. She can look at all this as practice for when I'm old and chronically ill and she's always schlepping me to the doc from the Old Folks' Home.

I have two daughters. Both are fantastic, incredible young women. *is proud*

I also have two fantastic incredible young men for sons, btw. I'm just rolling in greatness. :)

Oh, yuckies! I had what we thought might be gall bladder pain last week and it was no fun at all! Of course, mine turned out to be a wonky rib, but I can relate to side pain completely, now. ::::feel better soon:::::

*g* Thanks. Believe it or not, I'm off to NYC tonight, because the person I was planning on going with already booked the room. I will have a good time if it kills me, however. I feel okay, now, just a bit tired.

NYC!?

*turns green with envy* I LOVE NYC! Go Carnegie Deli on 8th Ave.for lunch; you will not disappointed. Carmine's for dinner is also wonderful. They serve family-style huge portins, at a reasonable price, especially for NYC. It's on W 45th Street, across the street from the NY Times building. Ask te hotel concierge to get you reservations., since it's very crowded for dinner.
*have now turned as green as green can possibly be!*

We both have great kids, BTW.

Re: NYC!?

I actually went to Cafe Reggio, just down from the corner of Bleecker and MacDougal.

Just so you know, those (non-medicated) heating pads that they sell in drug stores are the BEST EVER! They attach to your skin and give 6+ hours of heat... that really helped me a lot, when the pain was at it's worst.

Have fun in NYC :D

Ah-ha, found another of the saved links I accidentally discarded!

Anyway, I am glad to see you are better, but keep an eye on it. Well, as well as you can, considering your gall bladder is all hiding away on the inside and everything....
