I was going to be put in the hospital yesterday through Christmas but my doctors decided they would try some "intensive therapy" yesterday and if I improved today I wouldn't have to go to the hospital. And guess what, I actually improved! I get to stay home for Christmas (knock on wood I don't go down hill again) and actually spend it with my family. And I'm not feeling so horrible. Talk about awesome.
By the way, I have the best gastroenterologists in the world. I have never had such caring doctors in my life. My doctor actually told me he couldn't sleep last night because he was so worried about me. Talk about caring about your patients. Anyway, I feel so lucky to have found them (I see two of them).
