I gone and done did it. I looked to Google. I wasn’t going to stress. Trying to be a no fuss, no muss me. A better Jilly! But it’s raining here. And I blame the rain for all my woes. Sure we NEED the rain. Without the hail of course. My mood is affected by weather and gray rainy days do me no favors. I’m exaggerating of course. Miss queen, comma drama.
My lab results are online y’all. So despite me not retaining a thought in my head as my Doc gave me the results; scheduling my colonoscopy, I was able to commandeer the report she was reading to me from just now! When I highlight certain key words in the report then right click, a brilliant option known as Search Google for “epigastric pain” comes up. I mean c’mon, it is like they’re begging me to look. Am I right?!?!?
Despite having no medical degree, I have decided I will no longer take my H2 blocker. I even blame my H2 blocker for the step backwards. Of course I will talk to my doc about this on Friday to make sure I’m okay to do stop. If I need to start back up again I will. Though mentally, that one step to stop the H2 blocker is freeing. Poor B, he is worried about me. Not because of the lab report, but because of my fixation. I’m worried about me too. Less worried now that I got some control back by seeing my results. I really needed to read this part of the report ….
“Liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, adrenal glands, right kidney, uterus, adnexa, and urinary bladder have a normal CT appearance.” “Abdominal aorta has normal caliber. No adenopathy or ascites. Lung bases are clear. No suspicious bone lesion.” I left off the potentially bad stuff about inflammation and narrowing, cysts and what nots. Denial is powerful. Plus there is enough “looks normal” in there to help my crazy brain realize this … whatever this is … is absolutely treatable.
Ta-ta for now. Off to an early grocery run. Going today since the church picnic is tomorrow. We’re still ordering ‘to-go’ but this is a step up from last May when all was shut down tight and the picnic got cancelled.
As always, more to come.
