Negative Nancy.. I guess you would say

So after this blog you can all call me 'Negative Nancy.' I don't like to be a negative person. I really don't. I much prefer finding the good in things, but I'm afraid that it's not possible for me right now. So if you don't want to read any further, I understand. Just know if you do, It won't be the happiest blog today.

Since last Tuesday I have been in incredible pain. Now, I'm sure there are others out there that have been in worse, but for me this is awful. I put up with it from Tuesday last week until Friday. I called my Dr to see if she could get me in on Friday and of course, they thought it was just a pulled muscle so they told me to take some IB profun and relax. Serious? If I thought it was just a pulled muscle, why on earth would I be calling to a Dr. that I will have to pay money I don't have to go and see, if I wasn't really in that much pain. So whatever, I decided I would go to the insta care. The Insta Care worried it was my appendix and after paying that high copay they decided I needed to go to the ER.

So, Steve leaves work and comes and gets me from the insta care because, well they gave me so many pain injections that I could barely even talk. We arrive at the ER and explain whats going on. This is about 10 am on Friday. I sit in the ER in pain until 4pm yeah, they give me pain pills, but I want to know whats going on with me. At that time I was extremely sick to my stomach so the pain pills were just making that worse for me. Well, the CT scan results came back and show I have cyst on my ovaries. That's it? I have had those before, several of them and have never felt so ill, or been in so much pain. They give me a Rx for pain pills, take my 150$ copay, and send me home.
That was day 3 of pain

Day 4; Saturday. Not so much pain, I was pretty knocked out from the pain pills, and it felt good to sleep. I felt good until I actually got out of bed. Where I realized I was so sick to my stomach. Must be the pain pills I thought. So the rest of the day I just took it easy, laid down, and only took Tylenol for pain.OK so things are looking up. Great Saturday.

Day 5; Woke up for church.. felt pretty good. Not so much pain and no nausea. Perfect. I head downstairs to get some breakfast. I just ate 2 pieces of toast. Felt great and went to church. While I'm sitting in relief society I get the overwhelmng feeling I was going to throw up. Oh please, hold it in.. don't rush out in front of everyone. That's not what happened though. I ran out of the room, and of course did what I thought I was going to in the bathroom. I had Steve take me home and I laid in bed the rest of the day.

Day 6; Monday. This day I of course had to go to work. I work the early shift now and I'm the only one there when we open so I had to go. I made it the whole day feeling just sick to my stomach no pain.. until 2 pm. Then I felt worse then I had last Friday. This is awful! i don't understand what is going on. If its just a cyst then why am I not able to hold anything down. I mean anything. Not even water. Something is wrong here.

Day 7; Tuesday. I decided enough was enough. I called my Dr again and said that I needed to be seen ASAP. I cant afford the insta care or ER again so they would need to find a spot for me. They decided to check me for a twisted ovary and a tubal pregnancy. Both of those came back negative. All they saw in the Ultrasound was the same thing they have been saying all along. CYST!! I left this time with nausea medicine. I was not sure how long this sick stomach was going to last, and neither were they so I thought I should prepare for the long haul. I got home and looked at the Rx. It says its for sick stomachs BUT causes drowsiness. WHAT?P I cant take that during the day at work. I can barely work from being so sick, this sucks! I take it before bed and had a good nights rest.

Day 8; Wednesday, Today.
Well I woke up, sick and in pain again and was sad to know that I didn't have a pain pill or anything for my nausea to have during the day. I was just going to have to tough it out like every other day. I couldn't do it. I guess I'm just weak. I made it til 230 and told my boss that I had to leave. For one, I was way sick and could not even look at the computer screen with out wanting to run to the bathroom and the second reason is I have my big Pharmacy Tech test tomorrow and was stressing out and needed to study. So here I ma at home, sick, tired, in pain and really really missing my husband. I wish that I could see him more than 2 times a week, but I know his schooling is for the best right?

Well, that's it. Its my negative spiel (spelling??) I'm don't for tonight. I really hope this all goes away by this weekend. I could really use a vacation for it all.

Baby News!!

I saw this on someone else's page and thought this would be funny... and now I see that it was, and completely inaccurate. If that's not birth control for you then I dont know what is haha.

What do you think about my little new baby kATEVE? - What will your baby look like?

What do you think about my little new baby stekat? - What will your baby look like?

It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

So, I'm probably the last to know, but I just found out that Mr. Rogers was cancelled. That's totally sad! It was pretty much the only kids show I thought I would ever really enjoy watching with my children. I guess I will have to get used to Barney! Long live Mr. Rogers!! You will be missed!

Sleep...or lack there of

Yes, here she is! Sleeping Beauty..or should I say Sleep Study Sleeping Beauty. That's right, this is a picture of me last Tuesday at the Sleep Institute of Utah. I have a lot of swelling in my feet and my Dr. wanted to see if maybe im not getting enough oxygen to my body when I sleep. So they checked me for sleep apnea. I really don't understand how they can expect you to sleep when you are hooked up to so many differnt electrobes all over your body. Not to mention there is a micro phone and a camera watching you all night long. I think its an insane and very inaccurate sleep study
I showed up Tuesday night at 8pm. They then have you sign a whole lot of papers and then have you change into your pajamas. The the fun part starts. They take you to your room which they have tried to make look like a normal bedroom as much as possible, but it didnt really work. THey then proceed to hook all these differnt electrobes all over your body. I seriously think that I had at least 30 coming out of my head. It really felt like I had things growing out of my head, it was a gross feeling. Anyways, after they get everything hooked on you, they tell you its time for bed. By this time it was 11pm. Now, normally im a pretty boring person. I love to go to bed early. 9:30 seems late for me so you can imagine how tired I was at 11. But alas, there was not sleeping for the woman. I laid there all night long. You cant turn the tv on, or read or do anything but sleep, or try to sleep. It was horrible. You Have to lay on your back,and try not to move a lot because if you do, you could pull one or more of the electrobes off the many places of your body. 4:30 rolled around and I finally fell asleep..just until they had to wake me up at 5:30am. I then had to be to work the next morning by 7. So by the time they got the stuff off my body I had no time to go home and change, or shower. I showed up to work exhausted, dirty and orneary. It was not the best day of my life.
If any of you ever have or have to go through this, I highly recomend taking something that will put you to sleep all night long..
