Early Morning Happened

I had my endoscopy this morning. Very early this morning.

I'm still a bit wonk-tastic from being knocked out and can see why I'm not allowed to drive or make any legally binding decisions today, but overall I'm good. Results were thus:
  • Damage in my small intestines consistent with Celiac disease but nothing horribly destroyed
  • An ulcer worth taking a picture over but not worth actually mentioning
  • Food still in my stomach which is apparently evidence of stomach motility issues, something often seen with connective tissue disorders
  • A really sore hand from the IV
I really hope the hand thing doesn't prevent me from knitting today (though I'm not sure if my head is on straight enough to work on my current socks as they are colorwork and thus require me to follow a chart). I do think a nap will be in my future so maybe I can do some post-nap knitting.

Anyway, biopsy results should be back either the end of this week or the beginning of next and I still have an appointment with a rheumatologist at the end of the month, but excluding those two things, I have no medical-related plans.

Fun fact for today: when I woke up from anesthesia, I started talking about yarn. We all see what my priorities are.


  1. Good fun fact!!! maybe a pool day but don't drown! Love you to pieces, MIL

    1. Super-rainy today so no pooling. Which is for the best since I seem to have slept most of the day away!
