Monday-Vacation day 3

Well, it is Eddie's vacation, but, look who is totally chilling out!!! Coco is loving the extra time with her daddy. Today, Eddie and I both had appointments with our gastroentologist . Eddie got a good report, praise God. He has to go have a colonoscopy done on September 9th. No problems, just a routine screening because he will be fifty on his birthday in December. As for me, the doctor said there is nothing that can be done for the severe nerve problem in my stomach. The nerve damage is what is causing the nausea, bloating, dehydration, tiredness, and several other problems. There is a few medications for this problem, but, I cannot take them. The reason I cannot take them, is because they are neurological drugs, and could cause more brain trauma, or a stroke. So, I will just have to live with these problems. The doctor said he has done all he can do for me. He is scheduling me an appointment with a colon rectal specialist, they will be running test on me to try to find out what is causing the severe diarrhea, cramping, and bleeding. Will keep you all updated. Much love to everyone.

Yep. The regular doctors won't touch me, not even the dermatologist. They are all scared of the strokes.

Hi Denise! Well, some good news, and some not-so-good news. I am so sorry that you can't take medication that could help with the GI problems you are having.

I hope the new specialist will be able to figure something out for you?

Blessings,
Ceil
