I received a Sparkgoodie from one of my Sparkfriends earlier in the week wondering how I have been doing.
So, to update any who might be wondering...
August 2012 - stomach issues landed me with a colonoscopy...came back clear, though I am now on the 5 year program.
Fall 2012 - Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy, then a mastectomy. She is on a pill treatment that lasts....the next 5 years...I think. She is doing well with that. She is also in therapy, and finally dealing with the grief from my dad's death a few years back.
January 2013 - Back to the doctor, stomach still not feeling well...gall bladder, it turns out! I had it removed in February, and then came down with a lovely case of C. diff. After a 3 week antibiotic course, that is much better.
Late February 2013 - my bum ticker ended me up in the ER, though my symptoms disappeared before they could get me on the EKG. My cardiologist put me on a one month monitor, which recorded some PVC's (early heartbeats, which we knew I had), and SupraVentricular Tachycardia....that is most likely what I was feeling when in the ER. Now I will be seeing a Cardiac Electrophysiologist. While in the ER, the X-Ray showed...something?? They wanted me to check back with my doc in 3 months, but he and I decided to check again in a month. My follow up X-Ray was Monday, waiting on results.
April 2013 - My mom has been scheduled to have her gall bladder removed in May.
So, the struggles continue. I'm not crazy about my late 30s right now, and have been dealing with anxiety and depression to boot. I feel like I'm in a stall, just waiting to see what the docs will determine.
