Two Steps Back

The wee hours of the morning found me awakened by pain searing in my ankles, wrists and neck.  I finally got up at 4 am to take an anti-inflammatory and a couple of T-2's.  5:00 arrived with severe pains in my pancreas area, worsening by 6 am when Rob took me up to the Wiarton Emergency.

It had been 2 weeks since my last attack and visit to Emergency.  I didn't wait for the pain to become as bad this time around before I headed there.

The "on-call" doctor ordered me a shot of gravol and Toradol, however within 20 minutes she had to order a shot of Morphine for me, which took an hour to kick in.  Blood work was also ordered which took four hours to come back.

The blood work showed my liver being a little "off" which is common with having bile clogging ducts.  The next "on-call" Doctor hopes the MRCP I have scheduled next week will maybe unclog the ducts when the dye goes through.  He also assured me if there was something needing looked after that there wouldn't be a 4 month wait to get into the Specialist.  That all sound most promising, now to hold out from having any more attacks until we figure out how it can fixed.

I finally got "released" at about lunch time.  Need some information on Bile Duct Obstruction? just *click* HERE.

By the way until I woke up I think I had a fairly good night's sleep.  Guess there is an upside to every downside?

This afternoon I had a meeting at the Chamber office at 1:30 to finalize some of the Santa Claus Parade details.  After that I dropped off the leftover Santa Claus Treat Bags to the Community Living, who the Chamber donated them to this Year.  Last Year any leftover had been donated to the Wiarton Pioneer Kids.  I finished up the afternoon with a trip into to our Bank.

Needless to say I was hungry as I hadn't ate all day.  Rob was kind enough to take us out for Chinese Food for Dinner.  I also told him if I have another attack he will be running me back in to Emergency.

I was very disappointed of loosing almost a whole day.  I had just seemed to get a handle on the Crabby Cabbie paperwork, the house cleaning, and getting somewhat organized, then WHAM two steps back.

I suppose I will have to get back up, dust myself off and carry on, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. I so hope they can sort all this out for you ! I had a 4mm stone blocking my Bile Duct which causes poisoning in my system with an infection and my gallbladder and liver were twice their size before I got my gallbladder out I was on heavy duty painkillers and antibiotics 2 weeks before I I could have the gallbladder taken out this was 17 years ago and the infection left scares and damage to my liver , bio duct and intestines and that's why to this day I have digestive problems . I pray they get this all sorted out for you soon before it causes any more damage , Take care and take it easy .

  2. That is a rough day for you. I hope the doctors get it all figured out soon.

  3. Oh Cindy, how awful.I sure hope they get to the bottom of this problem soon!

  4. Oh Cindy take care of yourself. HUGS HUGS B

  5. I hope they get to the bottom of this Cindy. Glad you got some sleep; you are always on the go!


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
