Mr. Mystery Pain had returned. In full force.
After a few hours in the Emergency Department, we made our way back to 4 North. Different room, though. Lots of familiar faces up here... and they are all great, but we sort of hoped to never see them again. Despite many tests and scans, the doctors have ruled out a lot of scary bad stuff, but remain in the dark about what might be causing pain this severe. Thursday was a long night... we are trying to prove that it is indeed possible to survive without sleep.
So, the plan for tomorrow is to try to catch up on sleep, get the pain under control, continue being treated for an infection, and hopefully work towards being able to manage the pain at home. If you'd like to come visit, please call first. If no one answers... we're sleeping and/or considerably drugged. ;)
Thanks for your continued prayers for peace, comfort, strength and rest.
Cathy & Hannah ;)
