On the Road to Recovery

I am starting to feel better. I still have some days I'm in pain. Need to pay closer attention to what I eat or don't eat. I think the major part of my problem is that I don't eat when I'm at work at night.
I really hate the way I feel when I eat in the middle of the night, so I dont' eat. So now to find a happy medium. I was thinking of taking yogurt to work.
Eventually I will find a way to deal with all of this.
Knitting away on a Clapotis using Malbabrigio. It is beautiful yarn.

I have an ulcer

At least it has a name.
I'm on pills. Now for diet change.
10 years of Ibuprofen usage was not good for my gut I guess. I spent the past year trying to cut down on my Ibuprofen dose. I guess it wasn't enough. I have arthritis. Tylenol Arthritis Strength does not work as well as Ibuprofen.
So now it is more important then ever to lose my weight.
Hey I lost 8 pounds with this pain. LOL
So now to be healthy. I think I'm due.
I did finish a scarf thru all this.

2 ER visits down

This has not been a good month for me so far.
On the 2nd I passed out without warning.Yesterday I Spent 10 hours in the ER with abdominal pain. Diagnosis? Not sure.
Could be gall stones, an ulcer or gastritis.
I've had blood work, had it repeated. Had 2 EKG's and a CT Scan with contrast. Ugh. A Chest Xray.
Now for an ultrasound, a GI appointment and a return appontment with my regular doc.
Right now I just want to feel better. Eating and being in pain is no fun.
I'm trying to knit but I just don't feel well enough.
I'll keep it with me just in case.

Warm Hands

I've joined the warm hands knit along.
Just waiting to be aproved.
I figure this is a good way to get some Christmas gifts knitted.
I did make one mitten earlier this year. I need to rip out the thumb and reknit it, then I need to finish the second mitten.
Hopefully this will be the push I need.
