The Road Before & After Surgery
October 8, 2017
Mood:  not sure
Now Playing: Day 2834-Next GP Chapter... Turning Lemons Into Lemonade :)


The waiting game begins.

So much...for hospital physicians estimated guess on what the heck is going on with me. So much...for cat scan imaging coming back with absolutely zero, zip, zilch. Not once. But twice. So much...for this too shall pass...because it hasn't yet over the past 10 days.

The final radiology reports came back this morning. This after needing to be carefully read and reviewed by two other radiologists due to two separate cat scans failing to show a slue of problems. One big nightmare of a mess.

It's crazy to just sit here and think about how fast things have quickly progressed with my health. Literally in just a mere 5 months since my last rescan. At least back then things weren't not even a touch...this bad. In fact, the largest ovarian tumor is now more than doubled it's size. The lower portion of my small intestine as well has it's own serious connected problems going on that were not present just a mere 5 months ago. That is just 'some' of what was finally discovered using different imaging machinery at the hospital.

The toughest pill to swallow is the inability to take morphine due to causing even further GI issues. It worked really well in the hospital via IV. But then once I got home, three days later...my entire GI tract locked up on me. Now it's back to 24-hour pain and overwhelming discomfort until my team of specialists can figure out who needs to address which part of the damning radiology reports. The far bigger pill we might have to swallow...IF there is anything left that can be done. Instead of things just staying within the ovary after a failed attempt at a very high, maximum dose of radiation therapy. Everything has now quickly spread like wildfire, out of nowhere. I still am lost for words, yet thankful to have some sort of voice here on this blog. The only place where I will talk about the huge elephant in the room with regards to my health. Elephants'...plural now.

It's all really a HUGE, GINOROUS, damning of a shame.

If you are wondering what the heck is going on with this blog. I am still in the middle of transitioning this blog over to a new website. Becoming this sick, out of nowhere, sure didn't help out matters. It's hard to find more than an hour to refocus myself from the pain and place my attention towards the new website. A new home for this blog that won't continue crashing due to the inability to handle high volume server requests. The current webserver is still overcoming some serious issues. As once again...the blog has crashed while I am waiting for engineer assistance. Thanks to everyone for being patient as soon enough, this blog will have it's new home. YAYYYY! Something positive during a really dark time for myself and Eric.

It's been tough over the past two weeks. We have no clue what to expect, whether alone what to anticipate come tomorrow morning. It's like a really bad version of, "Anything Goes," by Florida Georgia Line.

Now what?... Who knows.
