Re: Can I not catch a break?
Thanks everyone. Sorry I have not been around to catch up. Since it is now 2 weeks since i have been able to eat and I have dropped 16 pounds now, we made a family decision to get me back to sweden and my doctors there. I will leave today and get back to my house the next morning. I will have a gp appointment on Friday to try to work out things enough that I will then sit on the toilet instead of hug it. My head doctor is away for two weeks, but is secretary informed us he is sneaking in on Monday so we will be there to pounce!
I am bummed on many levels. I havent had Christmas with my family in 4 years and it is so close, but I have to put my health first and figure out what is going on. Hopefully it is just my stomach is still not happy from the prilosec, but I need to kow for sure and I cannot afford to pay for it here. So
I am heading back to Sweden during the darkest and coldest part of the year and leaving behind 60 degree weather. The good news is I will be back with Hans and since my stomach is so upset there will be no forced eating of the various and wonderfully weird traditional Swedish Christmas fish dishes (it comes all ways...dried, pickled, rotten, dried and then soaked in water). Hallelujah. Free at last. God Almighty I am free at last. No weird fish! I have the perfect excuse.
So off to do my last minute Christmas shopping and packing. Thanks again everyone for your advice and support.
