Wheee, I am writing to you from THE HOSPITAL, which is where they send you when your internal organs misbehave as mine do. Short version: abdominal pain, vomiting, ER. I now have IV fluids and a feeding tube, surgery happening as soon as I am no longer malnourished.

Slightly longer version: I went for an MRI (in which I was required to drink contrast fluid and proceeded to vomit said contrast ALL OVER THE DAMN PLACE, advice for good living: do not vomit in an MRI tube) which showed a 20cm stricture that basically is blocking food from getting through. I thought I could stick it out a few more weeks and was planning to have surgery probably early May. But then I started vomiting and couldn't stop, and went to the ER, and here we are.

This is terrible news but at least you're getting the treatment you need to recover.

I am holding you in the light.

Damn things escalated quickly. I hope pain meds are nausea pills are tiding you over until the surgery (yay for it happening quickly? Maybe? Though boo at the need for it.)
