Quick update

I have a RUQ abdominal ultrasound scheduled tomorrow at 7 am. I got a long list of bloodwork done this morning -- the diagnostic marker for PBC as well as a bunch of other liver-related tests. It feels kind of weird to be doing all this testing for something other than trying to conceive -- I've become a creature of habit, I suppose.

In addition to the itching, now I have developed some minor pain in the right upper abdomen, mostly when I take a deep breath. Even though it may sound weird to say this, the pain could be better news in that it *could* just be a gallstone or something easily correctable, but at this point I'm just going to wait and see.

Taking things one step at a time isn't my strong suit, but I'm doing my best.

You know, now that you mention it, my mom had incredible uncontrollable itching when she was having gall bladder trouble. It sounds weird to wish someone gallstones...but I hope that's all it is for you.

I hope whatever it is that it isn't major and it is easily fix-able. I'm thinking about you.

Dear Lisa, I am thinking of you too and hoping that everything turns out to be fine. Hang in there, my dear.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about you, too. I hope they come up with a diagnosis quickly and that whatever is found is easily treatable.

All my best to you and G!
