I just wanted to let all of you know whats been going on. Last Friday morn, I became very ill so my Parents called 911.
At the hospital they did all the usual test and found that My bladder was full of urine even though I was urinating well.Anyway, they put me on a antibiotic for a Urinary tract infection. They also said that I have a bactirial overgrowth so I'm on a antibiotic for that. My Gastrologest came in to see my parents and me on Sun morn. He said things are progressing. He talked with us for 45 mins. He told us everything that is going on and also told us what to except for the future. He put me on 2 new pills for nausa and upted one my other medicines. Thank you for your support! You guys are wonderful! PS-I was released from the hosptial yesterday afternoon. I'm so glad to be home!

Sadie

I'm sorry to hear you are having such a nasty time. I hope those medications start working right away to help you clear those things up. I'm really glad you're home too and I hope you can get some much needed rest in the meantime. Try to keep us updated when you feel well enough ok....and of course, we're always here for you if you just want to chat! I admire your strength, you are a true inspiration to us all! I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Sadie,
I'm glad that you are doing better and that you are home. I know your cat missed you. I'm hoping that those antibiotics work very quickly.

Oh Sadie,
I'm so sorry to hear that everything is not alright.. I've become scared to open this website because every time I do it I just know that there are wonderful people in here and they're not feeling well at all.. But it is absolutely great that you got some help and that you have your parents there for you. I'm really hoping that everything will be better soon! :)
Take care,
Emmi

Glad you are home now and on the mend, Sadie. Gentle hugs.



Epasen, I know it can be depressing to read about the not so great parts of all this, but your caring enough to do so in spite of feeling bad about it is what makes this forum so great.
Warm wishes,
Jefa

Thank you for your encouraging words! You guys are the best! I've been having some rough times lately. The news from my Gastrolgest on Sunday wasn't the best news but I am going to keep fighting this nasty disease! I am a fighter!

Thanks again for all your support!!
Sadie
