frustrated and discouraged

I'm skipping volleyball tonight. That's BAD!!!! Volleyball is one of those things that I hate to miss... Norm even teases me that he'll have to plan his funeral around my volleyball schedule! (I think he's joking!?!) I'm not going because my stomach is acting up again. I've been nauseous all day long (yesterday too). I slept a few hours this afternoon hoping I would feel better and want to go play, however, I kept waking up because of the discomfort. I realized I should cancel tonight so that I can rest up to feel better enough to play on Wednesday. That's what I'm shooting for... Volleyball on Wednesday!

I did have my appointment this morning with the gastroenterologist. I didn't care much for her, no bedside manner at all. Norm reminded me that I'm not there for someone to hold my hand (although I wish she would wave a magic wand or something). She gave me some medicine to begin taking tomorrow to help reduce the acid in my stomach. I'll take that for the next three weeks to see if it begins to help at all. She is also scheduling me for an EGD (Esophagastroduodenoscopy). That will happen within the next few weeks. (I'm waiting to hear what the exact date will be.) I'm frustrated and discouraged. I hope that we'll be able to pinpoint the problem soon...


  1. Hey Big Sis Ü,

    I am sorry to hear that you are still not feeling any better.

    That is too bad that the Doc did not have any bedside manner. I think I am spoiled with my Doc. She has the best bedside manner. I hope they figure out what the problem is and get it taken care of.

    Luv ya

  2. Thanks sweetie!

    I am feeling better today than yesterday. I started the medication this morning and went out with Norm to breakfast... so far not nearly as nauseous as yeseterday (just a little tinge).

    You ARE spoiled! I wish I had a nice Doc like yours! I'm just hoping that her knowledge makes up for her attitude.

    Love you! Have a great day!!! :)
