Home after five days in the hospital

Well its been a long five days away from home and my family and espcially my "little man " Churchill.

Yesterday I underwent an Endoscopy and they found my bleeding ulcer , That i have had now for the past three years. I have been on medicaions to heal it , but it hasnt healed. Four and half years ago I under went Gastric Bypass surgery and since then I have nothing but problems. I have lost 247 pounds which people would think is great , but I am underweight and not doing very well health wise.

I was also Hospitalized for another type of abdominal pain. Pain I have had now for almost four years. They think it is Endometreosis. I have to see a specialist on April 4th at Woman and Infants Hospital. The only way to really find out if it is Endometreosis is to have an exploritory surgery, Then if it is I can decide whether to have it scrape out of me , or have a full historectomy ( which I think I will opt for ) because I have fibroid tumors on my ovaries ( I found that out yesterday during my pelvic ultrasound )

I stay very hopefull that things will get better very very soon with my health. Thank you all for Praying for me. God Hears all Prayers and Prayers are the most amazing things.


Churchill is doing great!!!! He is running around and being a kitten. When Mike goes in the Kitchen , He guards the kitchen so no one else can come in. He has been Protecting himself from Mocha. Mocha has become a little more tolerable of him, but is still very nasty towards us. Mary Lynn's friend Dannie is Helping us to place Mocha in a good home with no animals or kids. Also Sharolyn from "artsy Catsy" is donating the money she raised directly to Dr.bird.

Things are really starting to come together for the "little Man" . As I said in previous posts Thank You for everything you have done for "handsome Churchill" and also my family. I am forever in your debt and I have found "forever friends" at the Cat Blogosphere. I love each and everyone of you unconditionally. Thank you again for everything , Yours Truely , Rhi <3

We are sorry you are so sick. We hope they can fix your ulcer soon. Mommy had 19 fibroids removed in 2005 and a polyp removed in 2007. Not fun, but from what everyone says not nearly as painful as endometriosis. There are several less drastic things that can be done for fibroids now, but if you have endometriosis too, you may ultimately need the hysterectomy. We hope the specialist gets everything sorted out for you so that you can have treatment and start feeling better soon.

We are glad Churchill is feeling better and hope you feel better soon.

OMG - you poor thing! we will certainly purr for your health to get better! And it seems that all the purrs helped Churchill - so I do not see why it wouldn't help you either!
And Churchill's purring will also do wonders for you, I am sure!

I am glad that Churchill is doing well, but now he needs his MomBean to get better. I will continue to purr for you in the hopes that we can get you to start feeling better soon.

Meowm and I will purray that you get all fixed up! And we will keep purraying for Churchill to recover completely.

Meowm had a fibroid and she decided to have (only) her uterus taken out since she wasn't using it and cancer runs in her family. Once the doctor got in there he found she had endometriosis, so the doctor scraped that off of her ovaries. Anyway, we hope you get all straightened out soon!

I am glad mommy that you are feeling a bit better, and at least out of hospital. I hopes your tummy and your girly bits feels all better soon.
