    Default Where is ILoveHistory??

    I know that we've had this concern before, but here I go again. Has anyone heard from ILoveHistory? The last post that I've seen from her was Dec. 18. I know that she was really ill, and I do hope that she's ok.

    I know, we're concerned too - hope she's on a good vacation!

    I remember that she was at risk of seizures, so her mom wasn't letting her near a computer screen (the lights, apparently.) Maybe that's getting in the way of her logging on. Sure hope it's nothing more....she's had a plateful for one so very young.

    Hi Everyone!

    How are you all doing?

    I've been in and out of Hospital and doctor's rooms SO much recently, that I haven't been able to log in! I've really missed you guys and am SO happy to be back! Thank you all so very much for your concern.

    Well, I am FINALLY in remission from Ulcerative Colitis! I also had a Gastroscopy recently, which was AWFUL (I was not asleep) and five biopsies were taken, which all came out normal! So, the Gastroenterologist increased my G.E.R.D. (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) meds from 20mg at night, to 20mg before breakfast, 20mg before lunch, 20mg before supper and 40mg before bed, which is working brilliantly!

    However, the big problem at the moment is my bladder. I was diagnosed on Friday afternoon with Bladder Dyssynergia (by my Urologist), which, unfortunately, is apparently quite serious. I had a very large amount of white blood cells in my urine, so he's sent it away to the lab. because "at this point, it may be significant or it may not be." If there's an infection or some other simple problem, he'll treat it first and then we'll move onto treating the Dyssynergia. Here are some websites with information on Dyssynergia:

    I started my final and most important year of school last week on Wednesday and managed to go to school on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, as well as attend an important school function on Thursday evening.

    Keep well!

    Regards
    IloveHistory

    So good to hear from you ILoveHistory!

    You're in my prayers and thoughts about the bladder issue. (Note I didn't try to spell it...) Sounds painful and frightening. My hopes for you that the tests come back OK, and that all will be well.

    May this most important year of school go brilliantly!

    ILoveHistory;
    Congratulations on your remission, on your successful three days at school and at a school function. I am praying that your bladder problem is one that can be treated and not cause you any more pain or complications.
    It was so good to hear from you and please keep us posted about your test results.

    Peace and Blessings

    Hey ILoveHistory,
    I've been watching for your posts for a long time. It's good to know that you are doing better! Keep posting a note once in a while, so that we don't worry about you. I'll be seeing a top specialist in movement disorders at Baylor Med School on Feb. 25. I'll post about what happened after I get back from Houston.
    Bona fortuna in school this semester.
    Marla
