Alright...well I promised an update soon--and today's letter seems to fit. It won't be a very Inspirefly moment...but it is a very Kimberly moment. Yesterday, I was at a Young Women's activity (for my newer readers....an LDS weeknight for girls 12-18 to get together and hangout--I am one of their leaders). Out of nowhere I got a VERY sharp pain in my lower abdomen...around the place where my pants start. It felt like someone was stabbing me from the inside.
We got up to walk into a different room to laminate some cookbooks we were making, and I was really having trouble walking. I decided it was probably time to go home, and I was talking to a really good friend of mine about it. She was asking me if I could make it home and I don't really remember what I said because I started to feel really faint. Now don't get me wrong, I am not a big fainter--but I regularly faint when I have blood drawn--so I knew what my body was doing. I sat down on the ground and I think I began to freak some people out. I definitely freaked myself out. I never completely lost consciousness just the ability to really communicate.
Brian came, picked me up, and we ended up at the ER. They hooked me up to an IV with morphine....which helped a lot with the pain! They ran a whole bunch of tests...and tried to give me an ultrasound. The key word in that sentence was tried! Apparently a not full bladder is required...which I did not have. They ended up sending me home after all the other tests came back clean and there wasn't anything that they could tell is wrong with me. They did send me home with some pain killers which have been really nice today. I have my ultrasound tomorrow...so we'll see if we know anything soon.
I stayed home from work today and I am really just taking it one day at a time...so with the pain today and appointment coming soon--I am staying home tomorrow too. Crossing my fingers that we know more soon!
