Just Another Day?

I started the day out with nausea and tonight I am in pain. I am now suspecting my troubles are from endometriosis. Mark is having a hard time accepting the possibility that I may still have endometriosis. For that matter I am also. The pain is cycling, but I try to deny it. I have been taking very little hormones, staying off estrogen entirely. I notice the pain has calmed down, but is not entirely gone. All the more reason to believe it is endometriosis related. I have a phone consult coming up with my endo doctor, so will let him know that I have had more bouts of pain and he will want to try the Danazol. I also have an appointment with my bowel doctor this Thursday and hopefully I will learn the results of the biopsy they took.

Despite feeling lousy, I kept doing what I needed to do as best I could. I did have to take some time out to rest and nap. Tuesdays and Fridays are my shopping days. I try to get all the shopping I need to do into those days since the boys are on campus those days. Today's shopping accomplished some good buys at Ross. I got a pretty top for Easter and a pair of shorts. I still have not gained any weight so my old summer clothes are too big. Eric has grown so he needs some new clothes. I managed to find a funky pair of name brand shorts for $10. I was not sure he was going to like them, but turns out he loves them. Whew!

I emailed my nephew this morning. He is stationed in Iraq. He has been working at the palace where President Obama showed up. My nephew missed seeing the President as he wasn't in the palace today. He told me that he is going to be touring Iraq. He said he is not sure if it is safe, so please keep him in your prayers. He is due to come home this month and we are looking forward to seeing him so I hope his travels are safe.

I didn't experience nausea with endo, but my daughter does. She takes Ativan for nausea and aside from making her oh so drowsy, the Rx eases the nausea quite nicely. For pain she takes Vicodin.

Yes, I have had Ativan in the hospital, but take Xanax at home. It really helps me with the menopausal symptoms. I choose not to take anything for pain, it just interferes with the working of my bowel. When I was on pain medicine I got an ileus. I really don't want that to happen again. ;-)
