I tried to come up with a clever title for this post, but I've got nothing. I'm actually writing from my hospital room, that's right...hospital!! The good news is it's not for my family. I actually had emergency surgery yesterday.
It all started on Monday night when my tummy began hurting while Eric and I were watching a movie. Thinking it was just gas, I went on to bed. By midnight I was was in dire pain and throwing up every few minutes. I actually thought it was a nasty stomach bug until about 3 am when I had to CRAWL into the bedroom to get Eric. Unable to walk and puking my guts out Eric and I decided to head to the ER, sleeping baby and all!
After some tests and a CT scan they determined that I a bowel obstruction and would need immediate surgery. I won't go into details because it's gross. But long story short..it hurt. Labor has nothing on a bowel obstruction. It was excruciatingly painful.
I'm doing better now and hoping to go home tomorrow. But while here I've been blessed to have my husband by my side around the clock and tending to my every need. My dad drove almost three hours (on his birthday) with a broken pelvis so he could help with Eli. We've had the prayers and support of a wonderful church family, and countless visits from friends and co-works. Thank you all!!
Please continue to pray for a speedy recovery so that I can get home to my sweet boy!!
PS: The title just came to me. Thanks to the bowel obstruction, I am FULL OF CRAP...literally. Haha!!
