That’s what I feel like other people hear when I talk about my latest Dr. appointment.
I was just telling P how the Dr just called & said a Lyme infection showed up in my bloodwork for Tuleremia testing & he didn’t even look up from his laptop. “Uh-huh, really, that’s interesting, so um….yeah, so what’s next?”
And when I tell my girlfriends about how I still have a stomachache & a fever AGAIN I get that same pitiful trying to act interested face but really they’re dying to talk about anything&everything else. Here’s the thing everyone, I’m bored with it too! I haaate it!!
It’s so not me to always talk about my ailments, that’s what grandma’s do on phonecalls, not 30-something year old active women with lots of fun, exciting things to say & do! Gr!
I’m getting really bummed over on the other side of this laptop & want to blog about something frilly, cheerful & happy to get me back in the game. Oo! I know!!
Wait for it…
I’ve been working on two pairs for me & one for Sam & they’re finally done so there’s absolutely positively no reason I shouldn’t blog about it tomorrow! And now that I’ve said it outloud to you it’s like a little insurance policy that I’ll get back on that darn horse and do it!
(And I know of few of you dear sweet souls are actually interested in my health so I will give you the update in a nutshell. Colonoscopy & endoscopy were just fine. Anesthesia is AWESOME. When I woke up my first thought was wait, maybe if I just close my eyes I’ll go back to that quiet happy placee…didnt work. You’re up and they get ya on outta there pretty right quick. I will no longer confuse “recovery” with “retreat”. The only thing not normal was the lining of my stomach was red, Gastritis they call it. And it’s really no surprise considering I’ve had stomach pain for 4 weeks. So the question now becomes what’s the cause.
I found a wonderful new primary care Dr who’s leaning towards the thought that I might have a bacterial infection transmitted by one of the buns scratching me. My Lyme also seems to be back. Somehow my gut says they’re related. But I guess I’ll leave the connecting the dots to the Infectious Disease Dr I’m seeing next week. Every day I still have a low fever that comes & goes, abdominal tenderness & occasional pain as well throbbing headaches every freaking evening. Those are getting annoying. Want to hear the really weird part?? LUCY IS SICK WITH SOME OF THE SAME SYMPTOMS! She’s achy, tired & is having major bladder problems. That’s werid to you too right? I mentioned it to the vet today during her appointment, he’s thought I was a little too coincidental and is going to do some broad bloodwork on Lu if the antibiotics don’t get her some relief in the next couple days. So my incredibly smart friend, any guesses??)
