Update 1/09 – The 411


Today is my second day on z pack and I am still struggling to keep food down.  My stomach has at least stopped burning.  I woke up at 4:00 am hungry for the first time all week and guilted my mom and sister into taking me to Waffle House for grits and toast.  I ate and it came back up a few hours later, if that long.

I was incredibly touched that Dr. Kiltz contacted me to check on me yesterday evening.   Nothing like having doctors who care about you! !

I am feeling better than I was yesterday and am now back in the bed and resting.  It is sad that the majority of restaurants only serve cream based soups in lieu of broth based.  I have wanted chicken noodle soup all day.

My sister is going to make Pho tomorrow for me.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend !!

Stim Day 25 UGH! – The 411


Today is my 25th day stimming and I am miserable ! This tummy ulcer sucks and I am nauseous and feeling a bit weak.

My RE called in a prescription for a Z pack.  My mom and sister went and picked it up and brought me a sweet tea from McDonalds.  I took the first dosage of two pills and I have to take one for the next four days.  Thank goodness I have not experienced side effects from this med yet.

I have been sleeping off and on all day.  I can tell I have lost a few pounds from not eating these past couple of days.  My stomach, which was a lot more bloated from the injections has gone down some.

I hope by the end of the weekend I am starting to feel normal because this kicks rocks !
