I'm in the hospital, and I want to go home!

So, Wednesday morning I had a tummy ache, that got worse and worse, so I took a stool softner, (mabye TMI for some!). Well, an hour later, I started cramping and becoming very itchy, and breaking out in hives! Then the shortness of breath came, which I had to call the husband, because I had a feeling I was having an allergic reaction. He's 15 minutes away, trying to get home, and I need Benydryl, yet there is none, because someone in my house took the last of it and didn't tell me. Really, I need that stuff to survive these attacks, that may be an important thing to let me know!
So hubby gets there, rushes me to the hospital, thank god were only 3 minutes away! Thats when the fun began, vomitting, more intense cramping, and it took them an hour to get me any type of medication to ease the pain! After 4 hours of the ER, the decide to admit me, and I go for a CT Scan, which shows my colon is inflammed. They think it could be colitis, but just to be sure, they plan on doing a Colonoscopy, whooo hooo! I'm panicking, because I had a Great grandma that died of colon cancer, and 4 other family members that have problems with their colon. I'm only 30, so I'm freaking out!
Well, yesterday AM they confirm the Colonoscopy, which then I have ALL day to think about it, and panic some more! I had my Hubby, Mom and Gma here, which helped, but still, I had to ask for something to calm me down I was so bad!
Anyways, finally 5pm comes and they take me down, I was actually ok going down and waiting, and then they gave me that wonderful cocktail, and I woke up not feeling a thing! I actually think I woke up and saw my insides on the screen at one point, but I'm not 100% on that : )
Well, they didn't find anything, so right now they are ruling it as Colitis, and I've had 2 1/2 days of IV Antibiotics to get it under control. Thankfully, it's nothing too serious, and I can go home tomorrow if I keep solid food down, I haven't eaten in almost 3 days, I'm starving!!!

So, I will most likely have my Giveaway winners up sometime this weekend, I will mostl likely take a day or so to get back to normal, since sleep here is impossible! Every time I fall asleep, the darn machines start beeping, waking me out of a deep sleep! I'm hungry, tired, and ready to go home!!!

You poor thing. What a scare. When you get home just take a couple of days to rest up. Feel better soon.

Thanks you guys! Everything turned out ok, thankfully!
The worst part was drinking the stuff to clear myself out, horrible stuff, lol! It reminded me of lemon gatorade, don't think I'll be drinking that any time soon!
