My endoscopy was bright and early yesterday morning, and I had trouble coming out of sedation. Not real trouble, just the I couldn't keep my eyes open all day long kind of trouble. While Brian waited with me in recovery, I kept arguing with him that they hadn't done the procedure yet (because I didn't remember it) and that I just wanted to take a nap. I could not figure out why he wouldn't. stop. talking.

I came home and slept most of the day, and Brian swears I slurred my words until supper time. Everything is mostly fine. The doctor did a few biopsies to check for bacteria, but it looks as if the lining of my stomach is irritated by all the Ibuprofen I take these days. Good news is that the further away from chemo I get, the less I need to take it.

Camden has finally (knock on wood) been fever-free for almost 24 hours and is starting to feel better. Better enough that he's playing outside and I asked him to pull weeds out front . . . .which probably guarantees he'll come back inside with a fever. ;)

Notice the pink on his face over the weekend. And the glazed look in his eyes. That's what a fever will do to you.


And Rory really wanted a picture of her side ponytail.

By the way, thanks for the prayers for Elizabeth. Her ultrasound came back normal so it looks like her elevated CA125 is just her normal baseline. Over the next 10 days, I have a whole lot of doctor's appointments and tests so you can just shift those prayers my way.

Glad everyone is doing well. I love it when patients tell me they have not had their procedure yet. Cracks me up. Drugs:)
