this is getting old

Well, here we are again. IRP called at about 10:30 this morning in terrible pain. I ran her up to her doctor and he had her admitted to the hospital. The hospital was full, so it was nearly 3:00 by the time she got a room. Since then, we have been struggling to keep her out of pain and to get her to keep contrast liquid down. Finally, I decided to have the nurse tell IRP’s doctor that she was never going to be able to keep anything down unless he could get, and keep, her out of pain. The nurse had already come to this conclusion and informed the doctor. She was actually on the way to IRP’s room with a syringe full of morphine and the information that the scan would be performed without contrast fluid. They will be coming for IRP shortly. Please pray that the reason for the problem will be relatively mild and quickly solved. Thank you!~~TSG

    Will pray. Very sorry. I can’t imagine going through this without getting frustrated and angry. I hope God strengthens you in this horrific trial.

      Thank you! The doctors have determined that there is a lot of gas and a small obstruction. The gas is beginning to vent through the colostomy bag. We are going to try hydrating IRP and having her take in plenty of liquids in the hope that the obstruction, which is caused by scar tissue, will loosen on its own. The doctors do not want to operate again.
