oh what a week it has been.|
friday and saturday was my floor retreat. we went to the santa ana zoo and had dinner at rubys in laguna and then stayed the night at a church in dana point. on saturday we woke up early and participated in serve day, where we worked on various community service projects
sunday night was biola's 100th birthday bash and it was so fun. switchfoot was here and they were amazing, the myriad and tyrone wells opened...again amazing!
i had a cold but by tuesday night it was getting pretty bad then that night...or actually wednesday morning around 6:30 intense stomach pains woke me up so i hobbled to the bathroom hoping to throw up but no luck there. i called my mom and at this point and eventually ended up laying down in the hall of my dorm sweating and looking like im going to die. so i called the advice nurse and got a southern california kaiser number and an appointment to go to the doctor. by the time i got to the doctor i felt fine but they gave me huge extra strength ibuprofen to take if it happens again. so im feeling fine and go to physics...take my quiz and then the pain starts again so i take some meds and stay in bed.
the pain comes and goes
thursday morning around 3 i am awoken by extremely intense lower back pain. so i eat some crackers and take another pill...only to be awoken at 6:30 again by the pain. i end up getting up and getting ready for class anyways. i walk to my class and realize it is just too bad and i need to go back to bed. unfortunately i can only take my pills every 8 hours...i call my mom again who tells me to call the advice nurse again. i call, describe my symptoms and then am transferred to a registered nurse who then tells me to go to the ER because it could be kidney stones. so i go to the ER and pee in a cup. they dont know whats wrong. again the pain stops by the time i get to the dr.
if the pain starts again i have to go back to the ER for cat scans and blood tests. fortunately i am not in pain and havent taken pain since about 10:45 yesterday! yay!
oh and my grandpa is in the hospital because his legs keep collapsing...the drs dont know whats going on so keep him in your prayers!
