    Hi sweetie. It has been awhile since we last talked. I have been thinking of you quite often, but have been so sick to post. I haven't been on the board that often, just to ask a few questions. My rib and stomach pain have truly gotten the best of me. I cannot take it anymore. I have barely slept in a week and almost went to emergency a few times, but held off. I see the stomach specialist on Wednesday to schedule me for an edoscopy and I am going to insist on having a HIDA scan on my gallbladder. My mom had hers out many, many years ago, and the routine ultrasound did not show anything. After years of pain and complaints, they finally did a HIDA scan and long and behold she had tons of stones. Her gallbladder was immediately removed. I did not know this until recently, because she has never seen me in so much pain and mentioned it to me. If it could only be something like that, then I would never have this pain again. Nights are the worst for me. I can't lie down because it makes the pain so much worse. I am so fed up and my husband is starting to feel my pain. We were talking in bed last night, and I could not stop crying from this misery. Enough about me, how are you doing? Haven't seen your name on the board in a long time. How is the pregnancy going? Kids and hubby o.k.?? How has your rib pain doing. The last time we talked you were saying it has hit your right side just as bad. Oh, Shannon, why, why, why???? That's all I seem to be asking lately. My kids are suffering as well, because there mommy is not well and they see it. I just want to fullfill all the requests. They ask me to go out and I say "no mommy is not well." I am so sad for them. I hope I get an answer soon. For there sake, anyways. The weather has been so cold here for the past week, and it is supposed to finally start warming up. I wonder if my rib pain is because of the cold. It's just hard to believe that so much pain can come from the muscles. Are your kids off this week? We have something in Canada called "march break." They kids get a week off from school to enjoy. So, my older son is home for the week. Enough with my babbling. Shannon, I hope all is well and I truly look forward to talking to you soon. I could use a friend to lean on.

    Love,
    Tes

    HI stranger....I am sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I have not been on the boards in a long time as I have been so busy. I to have been sore but not as bad as it was a month ago. I am feeling more sick then anything and I know that is from the baby. All the kids have been sick for the last month and when they got over it we went on vacation to the dells and when we got home they all got sick with something else so now hear I sit with 4 out of 5 children ill. My hubby took our daughter in to the hospital last nite because she was having a croup attack that was getting the best of her so they were their for 6 hours treating her with all kinds of meds. Now she is doing so much better. so enough with my roller coster.
    I am so sorry that you are still in so much pain. I am not sure if it would be your gallbladder as most of your pain is in your left side and everyone that I have met had pain in their right lower region. i hope that is what it is as that can be taken care of and explian your pain. How are the little guy's doing? hubby? You will get better in time. I know summer is always good to me unless it rains. I hate the heat but love the fact that I am not in any pain.
    so how did your appt. go with the doc? good I hope. did I tell you that the doc said I have to have a c-section? The only good thing about that is that I can pick the date so we decided the 23rd of September will be the day we have the baby. well I am so very very tired so I am going to lay down for a nap. I will check in with you later on today. I hope you are feeling a bit better and know that I am thinking of you and pray for you to feel better.
    love,
    Shannon

    So glad to have you back. I really missed talking to you. Glad to hear that you are feeling better. I am doing abit better today and wonder if the weather is playing a role in my pain. It is supposed to be warming up big time this weekend. I was so bad last weekend, my body went numb from the intense pain. Do you ever think it is something much worse when a real bad flare hits? I saw the stomach doctor and I am doing a HIDA scan next Friday. I am also doing an edoscopy in October. I can't believe the long wait for this test. If my HIDA scan comes back negative, I have to beg him to get me an earlier appointment. I am just worried I have ulcers, infection. The pain has become to unbearable. I defiently have a high tolerence for pain, but lately it goes beyond my own strength. How are you managing with all the kids sick? You poor thing. Has the pregnancy lessened your fm symptoms at all? Maybe I should get pregnant again, since that seems to be the best cure for me.lol. My pain starts from just below my breasts and goes all the way down to my waistline and on both the left and right ribs. I used to get it more on my left, but now my right side bothers me as well. Is this where you feel your pain? And it is not an achy feeling(that I can handle), it is such an itense pain. It feels like my ribs are tryig to burst out of me. Does this describe your pain? Are you finding out what your having? Another girl would be nice to keep your daughter company. It was awesome talking to you again and please, try and post more often. Who am I to say, I only have 2 kids.lol...Take care buddy, your pal, Tes.

    I am so sorry for all your pain. the weather is supposed to get very warm this weekend here as well. I can not wait to open my windows and air the house out a bit. I hope your doc can get you in sooner for the endoscopy thing. I have got such a monster headach right now so I just took some aleve as it is the only thing that seems to work on them. I have found that from being prego I do feel a bit better muscle wise but tummy wise I want to barf everyday but don't. I am going to go and take a nap with the little guy and hope this headach goes away. I will check in later.
