Can't Sleep



I seem to be unable to get to sleep tonight. My husband is coming home tomorrow and I am so excited to see him after his being gone 6 weeks. He is in New Mexico tonight and will be here sometime early afternoon. Today is his 65th birthday and he was going to ride through Durango, Colorado to celebrate but he hit rain on his way up the mountains. So, he turned around and took to the highway and just headed the fastest way into New Mexico. I am sorry that his birthday was not what he hoped. It is a place that he has wanted to see, because one of his Bike mags said it was a beautiful trip. He said there would be another time. The stomach pains finally went away today and I hope they stay gone. I am so sick of getting blood drawn for whatever doctor. They all want different tests. My veins over my lifetime have left me and they have to use a butterfly needle on the side of my wrist. If they need lots of blood, they have had to go into the foot for it - that is really no fun :angry: . I have type O negative and I cannot be a doner as the blood gets bruised using a butterfly. I have had so many body tests, CT scans, MRI's and what have you that sometime you want to say enough is enough. And yet, when something is wrong, we still tell our doctors, knowing that they are going to order more tests. I am glad, that at least, my fighting for a diagnosis for Celiac Sprue Disease has been over for eighteen months. And hopefully the blood tests yesterday and the CT scan on Monday will only show a minor problem or no problem at all. Just a long time of recovering.
