Tomorrow Is The Day

So, I have been here in the wonderful state of Minnesota for over a week. I have had every GI test imaginable, as they are ruling out any other cause of my abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. It is good to see that these doctors aren't jumping in and scheduling me for surgery right away. I have a lot of confidence in my dr (Dr. Rajiv Attam) and I also like him. He is very personable and you can tell he truly cares and wants to help me have a pain free life. He told me the celiac plexus blocks have done more harm than anything and begged me not to do them anymore. I told him I wouldnt if he agreed to help me. I saw him Tuesday, had an endoscopy and colonoscopy Wed and a video capsule endocsopy today (Im actually still wearing the box). I will drop the receiver off to them tomorrow and I meet with Dr. Beilman, who Dr. Attam said was "his favorite surgeon", tomorrow at 10:30. I am hoping he tells me that they have ruled everything out, and that my pancreas can be removed and the cells transplanted. This is seriously the most happy I have been in years (besides my wedding day). My mom has been fantastic in taking care of me after every procedure and even taking me shopping to the Mall of America, where I decided to buy myself a coach bag for all I have gone through. :)
So tomorrow is the day that could change my life for the better!! I'm so excited I know Im not going to be able to sleep a wink tonight, but I wanted to let you all know how things were going out here. I am definetely in the right place and I feel only good things have come from this visit. I am truly blessed and forever grateful!!
