Not a good night last night
At about 9pm Steve started getting those really bad pains in his stomach again. After a couple of hours of walking around the house, we propped up on the recliners with a quilt, tried everything but his pain got worse, so off we went to the hospital again
We got there at about 12.30am and luckily only had to wait about 30 minutes as Steve was in really bad pain, I felt so bad for him
They were doing all these tests and they gave him 2 shots of Morphine to try to settle the pain.
The doctor and the nurse both said he should of had this looked at since he has had it happen so many times, I did tell them I tried to get Steve to go and have an endoscopy.
This time, we will be finding out exactly what is wrong!
The nurse said he will be at the hospital all night so I left the hospital at about 2.30am this morning.
I did not go until I could see the morphine working and he was drifting in and out of sleep.
I came home and managed to get about 2.5 hours sleep. I then went back this morning and stayed there for about 1.5 hours but have come home again.
Steve is drifting in and out of sleep and I was just basically sitting there in the dark falling asleep on the chair, so we thought it best I come home and wait for a phone call.
I just had to see him again first thing this morning.
They gave him more morphine overnight and his pain has gone from a 9 to a 3 out of 10 Steve says. He is still feeling pain and discomfort and they have offered him more morphine when I was there this morning but he preferred not to take it as it makes him feel really numb and awful.
He has had some urine tests, some blood tests and he has been fasting.
When I got there this morning, he was still waiting on an ultrasound.
At least this time they will hopefully get to the bottom of this and work out what the problem is. They are at least doing x rays and ultrasounds this time, which is great! It is free too since it is a public hospital
The doctor has said it could be anything, even could be gallstones or an ulcer, of which I told Steve ages ago, could be the issue
I feel like a zombie, dying for some sleep
