No Holiday Food hangover today which is good. Yes the night before Thanksgiving I was in the ER for myself too much time in the wrong room The Good news I get to keep my appendix's ! the not so good news is that I need to see a specialist or two on Saturday , not the end of the world - Conclusion - perhaps I need to eat Gluten Free or I have some disease in the ileum
( Crohns ) so really I was in for pain management and additional electrolytes.

I did complete the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving slow and easy got the Fun done. Then went and cooked for my family at my Moms and really enjoyed myself. I can workout since I know that no major body part has ruptured or is in Danger. As the pain was located in the area such as the Aorta , Appendix etc. that's what I went to find out - after the Morphine shot pretty much I did not feel a thing. lol And as usual the Blackhawks scored and the won the Game after I was released - keeping up with the Tradition that I am the jinx when I watch the first two periods and leave before the game is over , then they win , everyone agreed and laughed at the Dinner table when I memtioned . emoticon

Today and in the future paying closer attention to what I eat is a must and writing it down to perhaps narrow the list down to what ails me !! Thanks for all of the Well Wishes - Going for a easy swim today and Resting - Lil Racer

    Um, wow. You commented on my daughter's undiagnosed digestive issue blog on 11/27 where I discussed Celiac and IBD, and 2 days later you were in the ER for what turned out to be an undiagnosed digestive issue which might turn out to be Celiac or IBD? I hope that whatever the diagnosis is turns out to be the least painful / least hassle issue. Good luck!

    Oh man, sorry to hear you had to spend time in ER, and that you're suffering from an undiagnosed ailment. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it isn't Crohn's, yikes!

Sounds like you're doing well otherwise, and keep trucking along, as I know you always do. You're truly an inspriation to me! Congrats on doing the Turkey Trot! And then you went and cooked too? Amazing! :)

    Well, it's Sunday so I hope yesterday went well. Going GF isn't fun... (I'm not, but been tested for a ton of tummy issues). Keeping a food diary is an awesome idea!
Congrats on finishing the race!

    Hope you get a diagnosis soon. It was decades before I realized that fish, especially shellfish were a cause of my problems. Imagine! FISH! The one food that everyone suggests for a healthy lifestyle. Just proves that we're all unique.
Good luck.

    Oh dear, the ER visit is a worry. Just one episode of pain that is gone now, or ongoing issues, Lil Racer? Pain is debilitating so don't overdo it!

    Congrats on finishing the Turkey Trot and making/enjoying Thanksgiving! You now know what you have to do for the BlackHawks. Some are chosen. Guess it was you.

I'm glad the ER visit turned out the way it did but sorry you had to go through it. Good luck figuring out what it is. It sometimes takes awhile. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease a few years ago. At first it was hard but only because there is lots to learn. At first, I still stuck to my gluten containing foods but, at this point, it rarely comes in the house. It's just easier and, really, there's lots of good foods you can still eat. Take care!!

    I'm glad you are being diligent in tracking. Yes, it could be what you mentioned. It could also be something else, perhaps something minor we hope.

Hugs and please don't do anything I wouldn't do. LOL

Love ya 'lil racer Karen

    oh, feel better soon. I am so sorry to hear you required a trip to the ER. Not a fun place to be! Keep us posted about the crohns and gluten free, I work with a gal that has Crohns and she has been gluten free for a couple of years and has done much better with that kind of diet!
Have a great Friday! I am hoping to work just a 1/2 day so I can still get out of here and start the weekend early!
hugs!
