I am absolutely blown away by your comments/emails yesterday. I can’t even explain to you how much you guys have helped!
I’m going to keep this post short because I am pretty tired/weak/nauseated/woozy as I write about this (I write my morning posts at night and schedule them for the next day) but I wanted to fill you in on what they found!
PS I do not like needles but as I was writing that I realized nobody actually likes needles so it is kind of pointless to say because it is probably just a worldwide fact.
They found 2 problems during the scope that were the causes to all of my symptoms. I am so relieved to have answers and to be on a plan that should get me back to feeling good again soon. The next few days will still feel pretty awful but knowing it won’t be this way for much longer helps a ton!
They found inflammation in my stomach and they took 2 biopsies. He said one of the ares is almost at ulcer level and that is why it is so painful—> aka why I haven’t been able to eat much at all for the last few weeks. They also found a problem in my colon and I am on a lot of medicine for that.
PS I was hoping to be wearing a garmin and not a hospital band this weekend but things don’t always go according to our plan and that is okay.
I was pretty excited about the socks that they gave me… almost as good as running socks:)
With the problems found during the scope I asked what would have happened if I had tried to run the marathon. The answers were—> a lot of pain and I wouldn’t have made it at all because of the second problem. I know I made the right decisions and I’ll come back stronger and fitter for my next race.
And three more pictures from our day (I am pretty sure I am now sleep writing so yeah…)
1. Doggies in each hand 90% of the day.
3. What happens when I tell her it is bedtime. She is pretty good at hiding.
Good luck to all of the St. George runners! You are going to crush it and I’ll be there next year with ya!
What do you have going on this weekend???
