A little tid-bit of info on Mii
Okay, here it is. I've been having stomach pain for about 8 months now, pretty much any time I eat ANYTHING. So, I've gone to the doctors a bunch of times, had my blood drawn more than I've talked to the doctors, I've had an ultrasound, X-rays, a biopsy, and we've racked up quite a few miles on the car for doctor visits out of town. Now, 8 months is a pretty long time to be in pain, dontcha think? And sometimes the pain will vary from not really bad, to it feels like I'm being stabbed by a knife. Just a few days ago, I had to go to another doctor's appointment. The doctor basically said to me that there wasn't much else they could do, and I must say, I was pretty close to tears. (But you would be to if someone was basically saying "You're gonna be in pain for the rest of your life, and there's nothing you can do about it. Sorry.") But, after we left, the doctor spoke with another one and they thought about another test that they could do. I think it's something along the lines of getting hooked up to an IV that puts some radio-active stuff into your body for two hours and the doctors watch what happens with it. I would like to tell you all that I'm not taking this badly. I have NO CLUE as to what this is, and the doctors are running out of ideas too. But I've been pretty good about it. In fact, one of my favorite jokes to say about this is "I can be on one of those commercials! Lose weight and feel absolutely terrible! Who needs NutriSystem when you can have a stomach ache?" But, there are other things we're gonna do, and dad keeps telling me that we won't give up until we figure out what's wrong with me.
