So, I had the honor of speaking to the group of nurses today at the South hospital here in Calgary.
It was so nice to speak to them and share my crazy medical history.
Anyway I had to do a lot of writing and a lot of talking so I thought today I would just show you some pictures of my life along the way!

So, after the dust settled, Zane and I realized that they had stolen our TV, two laptops, my purse, Zane's wallet, his shoes and all of our keys. We were still in shock but had to quickly start the process of having our locks changed, contacting our insurance company and all of that fun stuff.
Our family and friends were very supportive my Dad came over right away and helped me make notes and keep track of everything.
Our friends brought over food and were very supportive.
My bff Cheryl even paid for our supper as the robbery took place two days before our wedding anniversary. She is always there when I need her and she continues to be my friend through this crazy journey of having a chronic illness even though sometimes I am not easy to be friends with.
Anyways, We were robbed on Thursday and then the following Monday I went for a Capsule Endoscopy because of course your illness can't stop even for a robbery, so my Dad took me to the hospital and I swallowed this really big camera shaped like a pill. I had to wear a recorder on my waist and my nurse said she could see blood in my stomach before I even left the office.
This started a long and exhausting process of Gastrointestinal bleeding, plasma and IV iron. Lots of exhausted days, iv, weekly blood work and tests.
I will write all about that next. For now I am fighting the flu so I am hopped up on Cough medicine watching Christmas movies and cuddling with my pups!
I hope if you are reading this you are safe and happy and healthy. Thank you for reading!

So I have had a nose bleed every day for the past seven days. Its not a big deal but its very annoying. At the moment I think I have an arm bleed. I think it happened last Sunday when I was trying to do some spring cleaning. I saw my family doctor about it on Wednesday and she sent me for an ultrasound. The ultrasound came back clear which is good in someways but bad because I am still in a lot of pain. I tried Celebrex to see if that would help and I tried cyclokapron and now I am on pain killers cause I just couldn't take the pain.
Zane and I are going to emergency today and I just pray that they infuse me without too much fuss.
Thats honestly the worst part. Its not the pain, or missing work, or not sleeping or all the needles and the sitting in emergency for hours and hours. Its the dragging yourself to emergency in need of help and the doctors telling you to go home. So I am just hoping for a doctor that hooks me up!
Not a very exciting blog post but its the best I cant do for now. Keep me in your prayers please!
