Hi, I'm trying this again.
Summer has been uneventful, unless you count doctor and dentist appointments as events! Because of all of this, I have decided not to volunteer at St Vincent DePaul. I never know how I'm going to feel!
I have still been experiencing severe abdominal pain. I decided to go to Froedtert Medical in Milwaukee for a consult as I have been there before for my abdominal surgeries. The first order of business was an MRI was scheduled. I got the contrast down, and got through the procedure, but I hope I never have to go through it again. I think the noise of the machine would be a very good torture device! Being enclosed did not bother me, as it was like a tanning booth.
The good news is that the MRI did not detect any active Crohn's or anything else.
Next step will be an ileoscopy. That is like a colonoscopy but they will go through the opening on my tummy.
My psoriasis on my tummy is under control, but is flaring in and around my ears! Sheese!
All this stress is adding to my urological problems, so my meds were increased to prevent any further flare ups.
Some days I feel like a mess, but it could be worse. I still have not ridden my bike. Will today be the day? It is difficult when I have abdominal pain.
Recently I got my hair cut. I decided on a new "do."
Last week I took my bff, and my great nephews to Bay Beach Amusement Park. We met up with my niece and her husband and daughter. It was a beautiful day, not too hot, and the boys were well behaved! No crying!
My great niece talked me into some rides. Here I am on the Sea Dragon (if you look real close).
In the middle. (the front on this pic). As it swings, you are at a 90° angle looking down and looking up. I didn't like it. I closed my eyes. My great niece kept saying, "It will be okay Auntie Debbie, you'll be fine, open your eyes!" LOL. She was such the little mother!
Next ride: The Bumper Cars. We had three who did not meet the height retirements, so I was recruited. It wasn't too bad, unless we got hit really hard. Hurt at the time, but I was okay after I got off.
That's us front left.
