Perfect enzymes @ last testing about a  month ago.


Liver, liver woe is me...

May 24, 2010 - 0 comments

Found this today, looking for info on how much time it takes to progress from stage to stage. The poem has nothing to do with what I was looking for, but I liked it just the same:

Liver, liver woe is me
Gross hepatomegaly
Pain just north of my umbilicus
My yellow face is so ridiculous
Upon my back and on my chest
Those spider angiomas nest
My serum G.O.T. is raised
And so's my alkaline phosphatase
So set 'em up  don't make a sound
We've still got time for one more round.

Bad test results abound, which is kinda strange, cause i'm a pretty good learner, and did well in school. Haha. funny. So anyway, the most recent test I failed was an external abdominal ultrasound. I've been complaining for almost 5 of pain on the lower left section of my abdomen-The Drs run tests-and nothing abnormal. Well this time, the external U/S says I need a "physical" exam as well as one of those invasive, gross feeling, condom covered probes used to do an internal U/S. Great, eh? The external u/s showed my L. ovary is 6cm x 1.5cm. lay 6 cigarettes together side by side, and that's about 6cm.

Oh, and I may have already mentioned, but i failed an Upper Endoscopy, too...duodenitis, barett's disease, stomach inflammation...and here i have been all these years thinking it was simple heartburn. The pictures (color) that the GI Dr showed me after the EGD were sickening. I liken it to skateboarders' "road rash". Ugh.

Aight, Y'all keep well. BFN

Halloween was fun. I dressed up for the first time in years. Just found out my husband's Dad is going thru kidney failure. His Mom asked us to move in with her to help her keep up the house. (2 story plantation home, 5br, 2ba, pool, formal diningroom, formal livingroom, and the one everybody else uses.) It's a lot for anyone, but His Mom is in her mid 80s now, and soon she may be alone there, so we agreed to move in. Our lease here is up in 2 months, but I think we can get out a little early. It's good for me to be of service, and this is a time for family to rally 'round. I think we'll be moved in in about 3 weeks, just before the end of the month.
