Healthwise, things are okay. We are all still reeling from the whole "Hannah still has some of her colon/J pouch left" news and trying to figure out what this means. I am also trying to figure out what's actually going on with my tummy. The day after ID Dr. put me back on antibiotics for the fluid collections, I get a call from GI Dr's PA telling me that my ultrasound was totally normal. So no worries about anything, oh except for this big mass that they think might be cancer. I was mildly baffled (but no worries about the mass thingy. It's just a cyst. It's been on about every other scan I've ever had and it's been worked up and it's nothing to be worried about.). I just don't understand how ID Dr thinks the ultrasound is abnormal and GI Dr thinks it's fine. I have put in calls and emails (beginning on Monday) to both of them requesting that they communicate with each other about their respective findings so that I'm getting a unified answer. I have yet to hear back from them. Needless to say, I am beyond frustrated and exasperated with the poor communication and conflicting information I'm getting.
I'm feeling okay. My joints flared up this week with the weather changes, but I think my pain is better overall (plus, I saw Dr. Pain and got a shot of Toradol, hurrah). I think I need more steroids in my life, since I've been shaky and tired all week. But, I think the antibiotics are helping me to feel better overall.
I'm also having a bit of trouble with work... I am in love with my job, but I'm driving far and not getting benefits. I know that I go to the doctor a ridiculous number of times and that I am very blessed that I only work an average of 4 days a week. Their patience, however, is understandably wearing thin as I continually have to go to the doctor. I don't miss work for this; I do it on my days off. But sometimes they call me into work on my days off... and I'm always at the doctor and can't come in, so they give me a hard time about that. There is no official policy about needing to be available on days off, so I don't really know who's right or wrong in this situation. Anyways, I'm praying that I'll have a good testimony and that God will make it clear what I should do. Ideally, a perfect new job with health benefits will just drop into my lap... ;) Haha...
