Still MIA

Well I just wanted to update you. I just got back from the Dr and he says it's 50/50 on this being a horrible virus or food poisoning. He said this isn't necessarily fitting what he's been seeing and what he's been seeing hasn't lasted this long however it's not a classic case of food poisoning either.

Here's where I'm at. I had to get blood work done again because he's concerned about my potassium level. If that doesn't come up then I'm in trouble so hopefully that is rebounding.
He gave me a slip to get the test for food poisoning but we're going to wait 2 days to see if things start turning around. He can treat the food poisoning but it's better for your body to heal on it's own.
He is thinking whatever caused this may have ulcerated which is why my stomach is so painful after I eat. I have meds to help with that now. I'm quite sick of only eating crackers for seriously about 7 days off and on now because anything else causes me hours of pain. It's a good diet plan- I've lost 11 pds now- but I think I'd rather have the 11 pds back and feel normal again!!

I hear you. I had major gastritis issues a few years ago. The pain was so tiresome and the meds took a long time to heal the irritation.

Praying you start heading on the road to full recovery.
