A hectic week

Hello everyone. I'm back after a terrible week. It started on Monday. Leanne was here enjoying a morning coffee when a phone call from her daughter had us going out the door in a hurry. She was in extreme pain and wanted to go to the hospital. Leanne as if I could go with her and of course I did. We spent the day in cases medical emergency and after the decided it was just constipation sent us home. Poor tiff spent the next 24 hours in pain until Wednesday night the pain got so bad again leanne took her to dandenong hospital. They said that she would not go home until they found out what it was. Wednesday we waited all day for scans to be done and she was scheduled for surgery to have her appendix taken out. But an emergency came in so she was delayed till Thursday. Thursday came and she whent in for her surgery and when she came out they said that they found something else and a doctor would speak to leanne about it. Now knowing Leanne's history of ovarian cancer, she freaked out and rang me. I got hubby to drop me off at the hospital and her step mum Rebecca was there too. She had received the same phone call and we both didnt want her to be alone. So it was the three amigos again. The doctor did come and see us and bec had to go. So lea and I waited. We were getting anxious by this stage and leanne decided to speak to someone's the nurse was nice and told her it wasnt cancer on the file probably an infection. So we left and hopefully tiff was told last night exactly what it was or leanne will find out today. Let me tell you I am exhausted. During all this I had a balance from mym old kinesiology teacher and I have been put on a new diet to cleanse my liver. No meat, no dairy, no eggs. So during this I have been having the headache from hell as my body gets used to the healthier way of eating. Detoxing is never fun. So there you are I hope your week has been less hectic See ya

I am not sure what "mym old kinesiology teacher " means but I have had bad migraines and I don't to anything drastic that might bring on one. Everything in moderation. Can't say that I believe in detoxing at all, especially since I don't believe that getting away from meat, dairy and eggs will help "detox" your liver (try getting off processed food) but if you do, I hope it does work for you :) after all, I don't know everything and new research always brings new things (though half of research seems to be proven wrong in a few years these days).

That was certainly a lot of excitement for everyone!

I wonder what caused your headache, exactly.
