*If I don't respond, obviously it's because the paramedics arrived.

So a little while ago some of you may remember I was in hospital because my stomach was bleeding.  I got that sorted was discharged and haven't had much issue with it since.  I thought all was well.

Just a little while ago, I got a stomach cramp and ran to the bathroom.  After I was done was I thought was very loose stools, I looked in the toilet and it was filled with not stool, but blood.  A lot of it.

I called my sister she is meeting me at the er, I am taking ds with me in ambulance. 

I am scared.  And yes, I am on cm because I am trying to stay calm while I wait and not freak out.

Update

Thank you all for the nice thoughts.  I'm being admitted :(  I hope ds is ok.  He doesn't deal well with change.  

So I had some tests done, the doctor said all the problems I've been having are connected (the dental issues, the chest pains, the past issue with my stomach bleeding).  They think I have peptic ulcers.  So I get to stay until that can be confirmed and then why I have them.  They think it may be related to chronic ibuprofin overdose (which is what sent me to the hospital before).  I heard the doctor mention "cancer screen" to the nurse :/  That's unnerving...  

I am really worried about ds.  I know he doesn't deal with change in routine well.  

I hope I get  a room soon.  


Update #2

Ok, a quasi-update.  Gawd this place is boring.  The doctor said they have some more testing to do, they are screening for cancer as a precaution, but he stressed it was a precaution and I shouldn't worry.  Not sure if I believe him lol.  Most of the work can be followed up by my family doctor, so I am basically here for observation and cancer screening.  

I did have the other tests done...  I would not like to speak of what was done O.0  They confirmed it is peptic uclers and are looking for a cause.  

Bleeding stopped.  So, I can go home before the weekend is out I hope *fingers crossed*.  DS did well and my nephew is bringing him to come see me after he picks him up from school.  I am looking forward to it.  3 more hours.  This place is lonely and I miss ds.

It's lower GO tract this time if it's obvious blood. You need a good gastroenterologist. Keep us updated

Breathe and try to relax. Freaking out won't bring the paramedics any sooner, I hope you'll be Ok. I'll keep you in my thoughts. Good luck!!
