Could use some prayers

Recommended Posts

My ttf family i could use lots of prayers and good vibes my way at this time. My health has went down hill again. I am currently dealing with 2 ulcersand they can not seem to figure out why my blood counts have been chronically low. I have an appointment with the hematologist this week and depending on how that goes will determine my treatment for the ulcers this time. The doctor is considering doing a total gastrectomy (meaning the remaining portion of my stomach will be removed and my intestine will be attached to my esophagus). I am really scared and just hoping for the best right now. I appreciate any and all good thoughts.

So little update i had a blood transfusion and i am getting weekly iron infusions to help combat the low blood and iron. The surgeon is going to rescope me on August 20th to see if the new combo of meds is helping the ulcers if not i will then see the other surgeon to see about having the total gastrectomy. @BurgundyBoy i am doing okay just taking everything one day at a time. I recently celebrated my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend.  He has honestly been my rock and now that we recently made the transition to living together a lot of my stress has honestly been lifted. As a bonus my boyfriend had sleeve surgery back in may so its been nice having someone who gets this lifestyle. son is well also just enjoying his last week of summer before school starts back. I can't believe i have a second grader already (my baby is growing up too fast). I hope you all are well and will try to update again soon.

@ktallon Sorry you have to go through this... hope the meds work to stop the bleeding. I guess the good news is you have a plan of action here with a clear solution, the gastrectomy, if need be ... and congrats on the relationship. Enjoy the week with your son, they grow up fast... B)
