Now Playing: Day 761-The Final Road To Survival
Patients with severe idiopathic bowel dysmotility have severe upper gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, abdominal discomfort and vomiting after meals. In addition these symptoms are common to continue in patients even after subtotal colectomy. Recent studies have shown other various connected gastro abnormalities including esophageal disturbed upper and lower sphincter problems.

Ahhhhhhhhhh......So this is what they like to call having to endure Drano aka Hell-In-A-Jug on a weekly basis or what other patients instead are enduring which is the magic glass bottle aka Magnesium Citrate? Maybe all these doctors and scientists who conduct years of research and data for the government need to just say its called, "Gastroparesis" then maybe our conditions would be taken a bit more seriously. Amen. The problem by not giving the various symptoms its proper name is the same problem why those who don't live with Gastroparesis but live around it are so darn confused. In turn it makes those of us who are Gastroparesis patients frustrated because society fails to understand what we have to go through on a daily basis due to lack of education...
I got my wake up call around 11am. Seems my lab work came back stat in less than 24 hours. It showed more blood than expected in my urine due to failing kidneys which is caused by connected dysmotility problems called, "Gastroparesis." My doctor asked how I was feeling in which I replied, "The same, not any better but not any worse." His response was a bit different, "It has gotten worse because your labs this time are showing things progressing and the medicine we have been trying isn't showing signs of working. You will need to see your Gastroenterologist next week and he will need to figure out the next course of action." Knowing my luck it will most likely mean adding one more specialist to the team of 17 or worse the dreaded word, "Dialysis." Sure, my attitude stinks today and who could blame me? I just woke up with bad news on top of dealing with bad Drano all night into the morning and early afternoon hours. I have a hangover from Drano hell going on with tremors and a nasty headache. At least I can say the toxic poison finally started working 8 hours later and I finally got some relief. WHEW!
Once I forced my tired body to get up and moving I checked the mold kit petri dishes for any changes. Guess what? WE HAVE MOLD FOLKS! DANG IT!! Seems out of the four spots we tested two are now showing mold growth inside the petri dishes. Of course they are from the basement wall downstairs where the water has been a huge issue and upstairs in the crawl space where the third bedroom is located. YIKES! Seems sleeping in the living room over the past four years which is located in the opposite side of the house where we are having all the water problems might had been the safest place to sleep. The mold is just now starting to grow so its white in color but once again only time will tell how bad things are going to get. My friend-Caregiver suggested we just might need to once again keep our options and eyes wide open when it comes to looking for a new place. Not that my full plate isn't already too full just imagine adding the 50% possibility of having to do a major move. This sure can't be good nor healthy for someone in my unique medical situation. Times like these I question where is Ty and is he going to move that bus so I won't have to deal with more stress? MOVE THAT BUS!
S I G H...
Yes, I always said, "Things could be worse." I better stop saying that because every time I do things literally do get worse! Whats next? A rare Egyption python snake is going to escape from Egypt and land in a FedEx flight and find its way on my front porch? Is Jack in the beanstock going to jump out of my peach tree in the backyard? I know! Maybe the land of make believe really isn't make believe after all and this is just some kind of joke and Tom Cruise is going to run into my house and scream, "YOU JUST GOT PUNKED!" Hahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
