Home Sweet Home!!

I am back home from the hospital! I came home on Friday, after being there for a almost a week!! I am so happy to be home!!

My blood pressure went nuts, and went so high. The Dr's got it under control with two new medicines. While I was in the hospital my Dr scheduled me for a colonoscopy and a upper GI. Wow! Getting ready for for of these is something else!!

I had 5 little polyps and one has been sent off for a biopsy. I had my ulcers fixed too! Which I didn't even know I had!!I knew my stomach had some pain but didn't even think of it being that.

While I was getting ready for the upper and lower GI my blood sugar fell to the 40's twice and that was a mess. I really don't remember a lot about that day I was so sick. One of my dear friends was visiting,and she said I was so out of it I went to sleep while she was talking to me! That was a first! I usually talk her leg off!! She knew I was sick, when I wasn't talking!!

I want to Thank you all for your many prayers for me. This was a real blessing. Thanks to my Bible study group too!! Joan, the teacher reads my blog I sure want her to know how much I appreciate all the prayers. My son's church prayed and my daughter in Mexico had all her ladies groups and church praying too!! Kelly put it on her facebook and tons of people at church came up to the girls yesterday and wanted to know how things were going! I stayed home and slept!!

It is a blessing to have friends who care and pray! Thanks for all the kind comments you all left for me,too!! I read them and had tears in my eyes reading them!

Well, happy you're back home. You really had an overhaul while you were there. The best place for all that to be done while they could watch your sugar levels.
Praise that you're all better.
Love you,
Mama Bear
