Here We Go Again!


My daughter Kami is in the hospital again. Would someone please let her know that this is not a high class resort? She can spend a lot less and be a lot more comfortable elsewhere~
The doctors say that it looks like the early stages of pancreatitis-AGAIN! She was also diagnosed with Addison's disease during her last stay at the hospital which they believe could have contributed to the symptoms that she had with the first round of pancreatitis. You can read about Addison's disease here but basically it is when a person's body doesn't produce enough cortisol. It can cause low blood pressure, dehydration, nausea and vomiting... (sounding familiar to anyone that followed her story previously?) The nurse today told her that she couldn't believe that they didn't put a stent in her bile duct the last time she was there to help prevent the pancreatitis from coming back. Sometimes it gets SO frustrating!!!! Hopefully since they know what it is this time around it won't get so out of control.

Keep her in your prayers...

I called her this morning. But I woke her up & she wasn't awake enough to really talk. I hope she doesn't have to stay long. Keep me posted.

So sorry Kathy. I can't believe you have to do this again. So frustrating for all involved. So very very sorry.

Kathy, I can't believe she has to go through this again. I will keep her and your family in my prayers and hopefully they will get some more answers this time. Take care and stay strong!

Kathy, is there anything you need? May be the winning lottery ticket, or a private hospital? I will keep you all in my prayers.
