Hospital

I know this is way over do. I have been in the hospital pretty sick since last Monday-Jan. 10th. I developed a very very sudden and severe small bowel obstruction and have been fighting it since. I had an NG tube up until this past Tuesday. But after that, things turned the wrong way again, and another tube was put back in. The tube came out again this afternnon, so I'm hoping it can stay out. We are still working on resolving the obstruction. I had hoped to be home by now, but things are just moving a lot slower. Upon admission, i was extremely sick and very acidotic. i had no bicarbonate in my blood. In addition, i had been in extreme, extreme pain. Luckily the pain is better.

THey have started me on clear liquids right now. I will have to remain on a full-liquid diet for about 2 weeks before resuming a solid-food diet. THis will be hard, but know it is necesarry. Please pray the obstruction will clear itself very quickly. Pray that the NG tube can stay out. Pray for improved strength, and energy. Also, just as importantly, pray i will be able to catch up on schoool stuff. I have missed a lot of stuff.

I'll try and update again soon!
Thanks!!!
