I ended up staying overnight at the hospital. We obviously had to make changes with my medications. Either the change in meds or the rough weekend caused my pancreatitis to worsen. I was very ill for about a week. Now I am doing a little better (depending on the day).
During the week after my hospital stay, I really struggled emotionally. I cried a lot (which is unusual for me), and was really down. I am not ready to die, especially in such a traumatic way! I really had to fight to get through my emotional struggle, and I've improved since then. Things are different now, though, because I was fiercely reminded of how fragile life is for me.
This Thanksgiving, I am especially thankful for the time I get to spend with my sweet husband, Ryan. I am grateful for the time I get to spend with my family. It is so nice when we can all get together!
Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for my friends and you, dear reader. Enjoy your holiday weekend!
