gi fun, redux

another day, another last-second scramble to a medical facility of some flavor. everything's better today, but yesterday afternoon min had another attack. christ! because of the medicine she's on, and hopefully the procedure she just had, the last two (monday, yesterday) have been calmer. calmer because they only involved excrutiating pain and not the other lovely symptoms i'll leave out because i already feel a bit nauseous today.

this time tho her attack was during business hours and not on a holiday, so the doc said to come in instead of going right to the ER. i'm sure we waited a shorter time there than if we'd gone to the ER, but it felt like forever. dr. t gave her some new meds to try cutting down the spasms, but by the time we were able to get the stupid rx filled, she was feeling a lot better. i guess the good part about that is, this attack was much much shorter than any of her other ones and she didn't even have to get doped up to stop it! wheee!

she is back at work today. i think she's a bit crazy but i can't say i wouldn't have done the same thing. damn that work ethic!

i'll try to post something fun soon to balance out all this seriousness. i am living in my own medical reality show, yes, but that doesn't mean i don't have plenty of silliness in my day. i'll try to make sure some of that creeps in here soon. :-)
