ER Visit 10/9/18

*Don’t scroll through the pictures if you can’t handle blood.* Thanks to those who have been praying! Because of my gastroparesis, I hadn’t been able to eat solid foods in normal quantities in 9 days. I’ve been drinking water and meal replacement shakes mainly to try and get my calories and nutrients. Eating a bite of solid food here and there. I had lost weight over the last week because it’s been hard to even get my liquids down. Each day, I’ve been feeling more weak, fatigued, and nauseated. I went to my doctor today because my hands were blue this morning and I was still super weak, nauseated, low motivation, low energy, and barely able to get up. I was at my doctor’s office for 2 hours and then they sent me to the ER to get an infusion of medication to try and combat the gastroparesis and my internal swelling from my angioedema. 6 hours later, I’m home. I’m okay, but am not 100%. I’m exhausted. Chronic illness really bites. This is not how I wanted to spend my Friday.

    Yuck 2 hours at the doctors office then 6 hours in the ER, i bet you are fatigued, those places are hard to be at even when you’re well (like going to see someone). Rest up and i hope you feel better soon.
