Now Playing: Day 692-The Final Road To Survival
I TEBOW MY DRANO!
Hee,hee,hee,hee...Yep, it was too good not to go there! Sometimes when faced with a ocean full of Drano you might as well find some sort of humor in it!
Ask my friend who had the job of picking up the box of Drano goodies today at my local Walmart pharmacy. Boy! did he ever have a few great stories to share! Hahahahaha! He said the pharmacy assistant even tried to hand him the information packet with the eight jugs of liquid dynamite so he chuckled and replied back to her, "Thanks! but we already know the drill since this is more than over 200 jugs already." He said the ladies jaw hit the ground and the line of people behind him waiting to pick up their prescriptions were silent as a mouse. He said, "You could hear a pin drop!" Lastly add the cashier's look on her face since he had to pick up a few things and check out with the already paid box of Drano. The cashier asked to see a receipt and then questioned what was in the box. So he replied, "Oh you don't want to know what this is but I will give you a hint. Think of Drano but only for the body." I can only imagine her facial expression but instead the woman looked at him and said, "Oh heck noway! I could never do that on a weekly basis." Hmmmm....Well I guess she would never make it past even one weeks worth of treatment! Hahahahaha! Its a different experience dealing with Drano aka Hell-In-A-Jug treatments. Another experience when the world shares the monthly pick up process getting my prescription.
I am once again enduring the treatment hangover from hell! I am dragging and honestly could be just content staying on my couchbed all day but the animal gang would never have it. No such luck although Pumpkin kitty didn't have a problem just lounging on his window bed all day. Lucky isn't he?! Instead I did my best to move around hoping to gain some energy. I am still taking my daily handful of vitamins as well liquids but I honestly don't feel any different. I still have yet to get any energy but will continue taking them to make my doctors happy.
We all finally figured out my strange stomach rashes that have been coming and going over the past year. We also figured out the problem with my hypoglycemia. During my last surgery they did find some issues going on with my liver as well inflammation. Unfortunately since my intestines no longer work and lack movement/motility my liver became fused to them. My surgeons could not get to my liver in order to do further investigating. It seems whatever is going on continues to progress and my Idiopathic Gastroparesis is also doing a domino effect on my pancreas and other GI organs. Its no wonder I am having one heck of a time trying to keep my blood sugar levels up and once I do get a decent reading on my monitor I am a few hours later right back down again. I also have dull, achy upper right quad pain that really was quite easy to explain. I just needed to ask my surgeons or look at my last op reports. DUH! Your liver works with your pancreas and your pancreas works with your liver. When one acts up and starts losing function the other will soon follow. A hida scan would show my doctors how much function I have left with both organs but honestly at this point why bother? If they can't fix the problem or cure it then why add something else onto my full plate? Its tough enough dealing with the multitude of issues due to this darn Gastroparesis. Heck, I am just doing good keeping up with everything now. Amen. So I have decided to not put my body through anymore extreme tests. I will continue keeping a close eye on both my low blood sugar and low blood pressure problems with my paralyzed organs.
Thanks GP! NOT!!
Friday I have my last test of the week and hopefully for the month or rest of the year. It sounded good anyways! Next week I am back to the dentist to repair the last two teeth on the right side but still have to find out if there is more damage again on the left side. Maybe me and my dentist need to just move next door to each other? This way I could just walk over in between treatments and get my dental work done. Hahahaha! Pretty sad when I see my dentist more than any other of my 16 specialists.
Thanks Drano! NOT!!
Hey, at least I can still find humor in life with bad news. To me the best medicine in the world will always be laughter.
