Hospital Again

My dad was finally admitted to the hospital after his 5th trip to the ER today. My sister is with him. I'm glad she's there. Tomorrow he'll undergo a cytoscopy to find out why he can't pee and why his bladder keeps forming blood clots.

I spoke with my other sister today to find out whether or not I need to go up. I'd like to be there but it's a 3 hour trip and my dad's wife isn't too keen on me for some reason so we would probably stay in a hotel. It's hard for me to make decisions so I'm relying on my sisters' a lot right now for information and help in this area. We'll know more after his procedure tomorrow.

I've been feeling pretty awful physically. I'm not sure if it's a herx anymore. I feel incredibly fatigued, and weak. Today while talking to my sister I felt pretty woozy. I left a message for my doctor's office to call but never heard anything. I'd like to stop the antibiotics, and herbs for a few days but don't know if that would ultimately make everything worse.

I was awakened by horrible stomach pain that I sometimes get. I know its an ulcer but it hasn't bothered me in at least a year. The strange thing is I get hiccups with it. It's a gnawing pain that wakes me up.

I made it through the MRI though. The open ones are much easier to tolerate than the closed ones. The valium, half a xanax, and lots of practice with relaxation stuff on my ipod all helped.
