Jello….That’s it for you!!!!

Well, here is the update for today….

I waited most of the day to have the ERCP, which would check to see if my Common Bile Duct is functioning properly and to make sure there is not a stone obstructing it. Still nothing to eat or drink….until after the test (as long as the test comes back okay!).

1pm…The transporter (I swear he was my son’s age…if it wasn’t a school day!!! LOL) came to pick me up and take me to Endoscopy to prep for my test. They got me all hooked up, I.V. fluids running, ready to go! I talked to the anesthesiologist and was soooo happy to find out that I would be going to sleep for my test by IV anesthesia (not conscious sedation). I really didn’t want to know about the process!!! I signed my consents and then the doctor finally got there! I got wheeled into the procedure room…got on the table and eventually they were ready to put me under =-)

About 3pm…I woke up and thought gee that was quick and my throat didn’t even hurt….WOW!!!! Then the nurse informed that they had to cancel it due to the probability that I WAS pregnant. This whole yes, no, yes thing is crazy!!! Turns out that because the first pregnancy test showed that I would have been very, very early on in a pregnancy and then they did a different type of pregnancy test the second time (one that shows just yes or no). The OB doc explained that the original test should have been repeated to see if the numbers were rising and that it was highly likely that the 2nd test gave a false negative. And then when they looked into the ultrasound I had on admission, it showed a sac in my uterus (which they could not say yes or no that it was a baby cause it was too early). So, add all this up and the GI doc did not feel comfortable going thru with the procedure…UGH! So, I am still not sure what caused the biliary pancreatitis and they stated that they hoped I didn’t have another attack while being pregnant.

By the way….My test numbers doubled since yesterday….So, I am pregnant! I don’t know a due date yet and from the numbers I haven’t been pregnant very long at all.

I still don’t know when I will get to go home. Soon, I hope. They started me on a liquid diet….EXACTLY 48 hours after the last time I had anything to eat or drink! I never enjoyed chicken broth, jello and italian ice soooo much ever in my life! It was the best dinner I had in, well, 2 days…LOL!!

Oh yeah, the one doctor said that it is possible that the pregnancy triggered the attack….I just hope another one doesn’t happen….

I will update more after I see docs again tomorrow.

Thank you for all your good thoughts and prayers!!!!
