Part IV

Good news, the doctor didn't find anything unusual. Still no clue what the lump is, but he doesn't think it's anything serious. So, a thousand dollars later I am very happy to not have to worry about it anymore. Oh, and Demerol is a wonderful drug! Hmmmm. I think I'm going to go take another nap.

Part III

Well, the good news is that they didn't see anything on the ultrasound, the bad news is that they are going to do some more tests to see if they can see what it is on the inside and....well, I'll just leave it at that. ;) No fun, but I guess it'll give peace of mind and then I can stop worrying and wondering what it is. That'll be on Tuesday, and tomorrow I have to be on clear liquids diet all day and not eat or drink anything after midnight. So I went and bought about 20 packages of jell-o....hopefully that'll tie me over. Well, that's about all the report for now!

Part II

Went to the doctor, and he said that there was definitely something wrong there but he didn't know what it was. He guessed a tumor because it was set in the deep tissue and not just floating around and that it was in my colon. (this doctor also spent more time checking out my boobs than my abdomen!) So, he sent me to another doctor, a gastroentomologist (or something like that) and he did just about the same thing only adding a few more unpleasant prods. "Hmmmm. Well, that's not supposed to be there. I'm not sure what it is, so I'm going to send you to someone else." So now, $300 later, I have an ultrasound tomorrow morning and they are going to take a look and see if they can figure out what the mass is. So far, today I've heard that maybe it is a tumor, a piece of poop (??? which would mean that I haven't gone poo in 2 weeks? ummmm, no.), and an ovarian cyst. So, it's just more wait and worry now. If they can't tell what it is with the ultrasound then they'll do a CT scan or an MRI, or possibly a colonoscopy. (oh please not the colonoscopy....not till I'm 50!!!) Hope they can figure it out tomorrow....

So, the other day I found this weird abdominal mass on my left side. I have no clue what it is, and there isn't one on my right side, and I can't think of any organs it would be. It's really weird! It doesn't hurt when I push on it or anything, and it's pretty fixed in there. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow, I'm curious to see what it is!

Meet "Gigantor". We just found this sucker in our backyard in a tree! It is called a yellow garden spider, and this sucker is about 4 inches from leg to leg! So, my friends, there really are "Texas Size" spiders. Uuuugh. Nasty. It's web is HUGE!!! It's probably about 2 feet wide. I've heard horror stories of people walking smack into these spiders' webs and getting one on them.....totally traumatizing! We're talking about a spider bigger than the size of your entire palm stuck in your hair! Luckily they aren't poisonous....might as well be if you ask me. If I got bit, first of all, it wouldn't be the poison that would kill me, I would already be dead from the heart attack!
