Thanks so much for your kind thoughts, prayers and notes. My test went well yesterday, I am now back to eating food, and they found nothing major. My hope is that with the diagnosis and the medication I will be back to my old self soon!
Have I mentioned that not having any food for 2.5 days sucks? Oh, and I discovered that when you're really dehydrated it's really hard to find a vein for an IV. Apparently I have tiny veins. And a nice bruise on my arm from a botched attempt. Oh well---I felt so sorry for the nurse---I wouldn't want to have to do that to people for a living!
