When it rains it pours

This weekend was a crazy crazy weekend. 

It all started on Thursday morning when I noticed my shower wouldn't drain.  This lead to me discovering the basement was flooded, which lead to my mom having to have MAJOR plumbing work done.  Some where along the day there was a geyser of crap that came up my shower drain.  Fun times cleaning after work.

Friday morning I walk into the kitchen and shut the back hall door.  A wine rack that was holding 6 bottles of wine and 10+ glasses fell off the wall and broke everywhere!

Friday I went and did some Christmas shopping and helped Kelly from work look for some outfits for her engagement pictures.  When I got home I was going to relax, have dinner and do laundry.  Then the washer broke.  Full of my laundry and water!

Friday night I started having stomach pains again. I took some TUMS chatted with P and tried to relax.  It was a restless night and finally gave in to the pain and got up early.  I talked with my mom and she thought I was having Gall Bladder issues.  She convinced me to go to the ER.  So I had a bunch of tests and an ultrasound.  They told me I had a large gallstone and needed surgery within the month.  Then came back in the room 15 minutes later saying "Opps you don't have a gallstone"!!  Very confusing especially due to the heavy drugs they gave me.  In the end they said I have gastritis, which is basically inflammation of the inside of your stomach. 

I got nothing done I had planned on Saturday since we were at the ER for several hours and then I slept ALL. DAY. LONG!  I have tried eating twice since I have gotten home and it has been a VERY painful experience.  I plan on calling a GI specialist this week.

P was so supportive and sweet though it.  Of course reminding me to worry about being healthy not about getting stuff done for Christmas.  I am so lucky to have him.

This week will have lots going on including my first trip to a laundry mat in about 5 years!  YIPPEE!!!

    You're right. When it rains it DOES pour.
    I'm sorry you're not feeling well lovely lady and I hope that the GI Specialist can give you some more answers.
    Here's to a MUCH better week!!!
