Weak Immune System

good  morning readers,

I have not been feeling too great.

About a month ago, I had the stomach bug for 5 days, and went to urgent care got fluids. Then a week later I had the same syptomns for 3 days. Then two weeks ago I had a burning pain in my stomach, waking me up at night it was awful. I went to urgent care, and they sent me in for a CT scan. 
The scan was normal.

A week ago Wednesday, the burning pain turned into neasous and vommitng. Ever since then I have barely kept any thing down, feel achy, weak and tired. On Friday, I went to urgent care and got fluids. I was told that if I had not kept any thing down  by the next day, to go the hospital. So on Saturday I went to the hospital from 8-1 and got fluids and  blood work. I was told it was viral. On Monday I was still throwing up so I went to my primary care, who didn't know what was going on so she sent me back to the GI. The gastroenologist believes it's viral but wants to do two procedures to make sure it's not some thing else. So on Tuesday I have to be sedated for a colonoscopy and endoscopy. 


So currently I am on day 8 of a stomach bug. Some days I am stay more positive than others. It's hard because I am used to go,go, going, and have been trapped In the house.

I don't know if I have a weak immune system and keep getting sick because of my HD, or if there is something else going on here. I'm more than ready for answers, ready to know. I am a little nervous about having the two procedures done but want to get them over with. I don't know what answer I want- don't want it to be viral because that means I have a weak immune system, but don't want some thing else to be wrong that  I have to deal with.

And there are many things that I have been looking forward to the next few days. I was planning on visiting my old school tomorrow for Halloween and seeing my old students and co- workers. Another thing I had been looking forward to for months is HDSA Education day, which is a mini convention in Boston. Then that night my cousin Chel and I were dog sitting at my sisters, and going out in Boston.

If your thoughts and prayers could be with me that I feel better tomorrow and Saturday I would greatly appreciate that.

I know today's post wasn't very positive but I had to get my frustrations out. thanks for baring with me!

As always thanks for reading,
Alex
