Stress

Sorry I haven't been around much this week. I also have not been stitching at all. Sunday, Matt complained of some stomach pain around bed time. I thought maybe he had pulled something while helping his mom move some things around earlier in the day. Monday, he texted me out of the blue and said he needed to see a doctor asap. For a man that never complains, it sent me into quite a tailspin. He had his coworker drop him off at my office on their way back through town from a job and I took him to Urgent Care. It was the first time either of us had been to an Urgent Care facility. It was a good experience, a much wiser choice than to go to the emergency room and sit around waiting all night.

The doctor thought as I did that maybe he had pulled a muscle and needed to take a couple days without any heavy lifting to let it heal. He decided to do some bloodwork just in case and, glad we did, as it came back with some abnormalities. We were then sent over to the local hospital for Matt to have an ultrasound. In an attempt to keep it light because we were both freaking out a bit, when the picture popped up I said, "Oh! It's a boy!"

All we know right now is there seems to be a blockage of some sort between the liver and gallbladder. Yesterday, he was supposed to go see a specialist, but of course they rescheduled the appointment for today. So, I have taken off work today in the hopes that when we get there, we can get some answers and solutions to the situation.

If they reschedule this again, I just might have to start throwing some punches.....
