Today is Tuesday 29th November

I am getting to know every lump, bump and dip in the road personally on the journey to A&E. Hubby woke up with horrendous pain in his stomach again and I got him there at 9am having caught the rush hour for the last half hour of our journey.
After the last three visits, it’s pointless hanging around, so I came straight home. The liver we had so been looking forward to for lunch had been put in the freezer for another day so I hope it will be OK. I bought a baguette roll and will have bacon and mushrooms in it.
Hubby rang just after I got through the door to say he was being discharged, but to have a break before coming to collect him. I said I’d ring him when I was ready to leave.

I walked the dog, did some housework, and had a coupe of cups of tea to wash down some paracetamol, then called him back to find out what was going on.
They have finally agreed there is something wrong and fast tracking the endoscopy, but not today. They’ve taken bloods too, but Hubby hasn’t seen anyone to find out what’s happening, so I’ve said it’s pointless me coming up and then having to wait hours in the car with the dog as it’s not fair on her and I can’t leave her with our friend today.
I am therefore waiting for him to call me and then I’ll go and get him.

Glad fuel prices are coming down at the pumps.

Take care everyone.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I hope they find out the problem. Hugs.

  2. Fingers crossed for hubby!

  3. I am so sorry you are having to endure all this going back and forth and not getting answers. I vividly remember the times that we had to get an ambulance out for my husband when he first became ill or get a friend to drive us to the hospital in Hobart 60kms away. I hope that you are a bit closer to finding out what is going on.

  4. Has he had his gallbladder out yet? When mine was getting bad I would get sharp excruciating pain right in the center of my stomach right below my rib cage. It would also bother me to the right of that but it was mostly right in the middle. I hope it is something minor! 🙏🏻

    • No, and that is something that has never been mentioned actually. He is certain though it is to do with the stomach wrap operation he had two years ago which was to help his reflux issues. However, it is something to consider especially the location of the pain.

      • Yes, definitely have it looked at! It took over six months for them to finally pinpoint the problem. When it was finally taken out the doctor showed me a photo and had said that if it had burst inside of me I would have died. It was so infected that it would have be septic, (I think that’s the word they use). Anyhow, I was in so much pain all the time!

      • After writing my response, I asked Hubby and he said when they did the CT scan, he was told there was no sign of kidney or gall stones. He’d had kidney stones before but this pain was in a different place. He is waiting for another endoscopy now.

    I hope they can give you the answers as to what exactly is going on regarding your husband, asap.
    I’m seeing the nurse tomorrow to get my legs bandaged… again!

    • Us too Glyn. Have you got ulcers on your legs?
      Hope you’re not too uncomfortable. Hubby had major surgery on his legs years before I knew him and has to wear support stockings now.

      • glyn40wilton says:

        Yes, I have got ulcers on my lower legs and they are very sore. The problem I have is that the valves in my veins aren’t working as well as they should. The scan I had showed that it’s the deeper veins with that condition and surgery is not an option…yet!

      • Hubby can identify as he suffered from spontaneous DVTs following reconstructive surgery on his legs following a motor bike accident before I met him, which is why he’s on warfarin for life. Take care.

  6. I hope they find the problem and that you didn’t have to wait too long. 🥰

  7. Nope, Not Pam says:

    Not good, I hope all works out and they final get a diagnoses

    This is troubling news! I do hope they can figure out what is going on… I agree with Christine re: gallbladder issues. I’ve known several people who have had gall stones and everyone of them had different symptoms! Usually an ultrasound can diagnose the issue if it is the gallbladder…

    What is happening to our NHS it makes no sense anymore 💜💜
