Back to the house

So I get to go home today. I am happy to report I had a great day yesterday which included eating without pain and vomiting, a restful night's sleep (no waking up in pain like previous 3 weeks!!!), and I feel stronger and healthier. The doctor has just been in again and said he has never seen a case like mine, but so far, any tests that could be potentially scary (lymphoma, etc) have all been negative. For now he is calling it a severe acute h. pylor infection, probably brought on by the amoebas I had a few months back. I'm taking antibiotics, stomach protectors, acid reducers, and pain meds if they're needed, for 10 more days at home to hopefully irradicate the bacteria and continue getting well.

The continued good news is that he saw no more signs of ulcers and that is excellent because it means no more strict diet. He said at this point he wants me to eat, and eat as often as I can. So these are all great things that I am rejoicing about. I continue to hope and pray this progress continues and that after the 10 days, no other things are found in my guts. Thank you again for all the support you have given me, it has been the biggest encouragement receiving your notes, emails, and Facebook posts. So home we go pretty soon for more rest and recovery.

Holy crap! I am just catching up on all of this and I am so glad to hear you are doing better. It sounds like you have been through a lot. I hope you continue to get better. Are you going to stay in Oregon for a while or are you headed back? Does this mean that this trip replaces your other one? Take care of yourself!
