Just when things are starting to work, I get the stresses of my life almost figured out, a hugh monkey wrench has to be thrown into the mix.
Three weeks ago my husband complained of pain on his left side. He blew it off as overeating on crap and that it would go away. Sunday morning I took him to the hospital as the pain was worse and well, it's been three weeks ongoing he just never said anything. The ER doctor poked and prodded, ran some blood and urine tests. They came back clean. The dr. felt "something" during the poke and prodding and is now sending him for a ct scan and ultrasound. The dr. did come out and say that it was only 1 of 2 things and as there is no sign of infection (that would show by now), it isn't number one. And number two is not a pleasant thought - cancer. The worst part is having to wait til Aug. 4th to even get in for the imaging. If the pain gets much worse, hubby wants to take time off work - he is having problems sitting and driving for long distances. I'm at a loss right now. I didn't think at 40 we would be dealing with anything like this.
