The Waiting Game

I am now playing the waiting game. I am going to have an Endoscopy (EGD) done on January 30th. The specialist had a few thoughts on what could be going on, but nothing is certain until next week when she can do this test. I have done research online and the one thing that I think it could be won't show up on a scope. It is also a condition that is mainly treated with a medication that I'm highly allergic too! I really thought I would feel better by having a plan, but health wise I feel I've declined. I have another week and a half to wait and it seems so long. You would think after 3 months it would seem like not much time at all, but yet it does. I'll try to update my blog after the big test and I'll be praying for some type of answer! Thank you for all your support!

After almost 3 months of suffering with this mystery illness I'm going to see a specialist tomorrow. It's going to cost a lot of money, but at this point I couldn't put a price on feeling better. I have a whole list of food I want to eat when I finally recover. I think I'll feel better after tomorrow, because at least there should be a plan of what we can do or test. Tomorrow is really just a consultation with the doctor. I know that I have learned to appreciate my health through this whole ordeal. I think about all the times that I woke up feeling great and didn't even realize that I should thankful. Now I know how much it means to have your health. If you feel good today you are blessed!
