The ID tags I had to wear so they knew what did not agree with me and that they didn't mistake me for someone else!
The clinical nurse performing the endoscopy recommended entonox for pain relief as there was one part deemed particularly painful and she was right! I have given birth four times with no analgesia but the pain was very similar to the pain over a week ago, so not only was I " off my head" on entonox I started to lose consciousness again. At one point I thought I was back in my bedroom with Dave on that fateful Sunday morning!
The good news is that everything looked normal but to make sure they have sent in a sample for testing. The staff were wonderful especially since I spent the rest of my time in recovery crying!! A common side effect of the Entonox, good job I didn't use it in labour then :-)
I have managed to eat a small amount and have been drinking plenty. God is good, I have been upheld in prayer and I was able to offer an arrow prayer for a lady who was terrified of her procedure. Remember the story about the love of God spanning an ocean? Well Em rang this afternoon to check how I was and didn't even know that it was my day for the procedure, in the chaos of the past week I had forgotten to tell her :-)
I know He holds me in the palm of His hand, what an amazing Father!
Love to you all, San xx
