Health Update

Here we are again – a week later – after the Gallbladder inflammation.

I woke up last Monday with pain all over my upper body. On Tuesday before dialysis I was sent for x-rays and MRI – nothing showed. On Wednesday the soreness of my arms and upper body was better but I still had pain over the abdomen, so again on Thursday after showing a fever of 38,3 I was sent for an ultrasonography – it showed acute cholecystitis.  I was treated with antibiotics and still have to take Flagyl 3 x a day.  Happy the pain is gone and hope they will not have to remove the gallbladder.

I found an excellent article on the internet.

Otherwise dialysis is going normal, they do not take too much water – depending on my weight and it varies from 800 g to 1,300 g.  I just feel immensely tired and washed out, but sure it has to do with the extra strain due to the inflammation.

I did some work on my cardmaking hobby again today as the weather was rainy and cool, some of my cards can be viewed at:  Cardmaking and I also put 4 up for sale on facebook.

Wishing all my friends a good start in the new week – enjoy everyday as it comes – the present is the only time we can change.
