Ultrasound of RUQ

Had to fast this morning.....not fun....but when I read that Missie had to fast for 3 days, I thought...suck it up Barb....anyway I am having an ultrasound today at 12:30. I have to go into San Antonio to get it done because the small town I live in doesn't have that here. Or a Walmart either ...jus sayin...and so Rick will be going with me and he said he was going to take me out to eat after.
I will be going by my parents house to pick up the mail from their neighbor...she is an angel...she has been picking up my parents mail for 2 years now because as you know they are in Heaven now. She picks up the mail so it will look like someone lives there and it doesn't build up. They also park their truck over there. I don't worry about the house because if anything happens there I get a phone call. She watches that house like a hawk.
I am thinking of getting her something special for Christmas...but I don't know what.
Eric will be coming home late today when he gets off of work. He gets to stay with us until Sunday!!!!!
Sadie got kennel cough from her daughter Shelby, but they are both on medicine now and getting better.
Sadie and I have matching and green...I will try to take pictures later.
BTW for new readers Sadie is my puppy dog.
Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas!
I will be back to let you know how the ultrasound went.
Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!
Love ya! xoixBarb

I'm scared

I have been having stomach pain in the top part of my right side under my rib cage. I went to the doctor on Monday and he did blood tests. I called today and the nurse said my red blood count is high. They will be sceduleing an ultra sound soon. I don't know what this means. I am worried. I want to live to be 100. I hope it is something simple that can be fixed with medicine and that it is not life threatening. Please keep me in your prayers.
I would also like to take this time to tell each and everyone of you how much you all mean to me. You keep a smile on my face. I read alot of blogs here and don't always respond, but I do love you all very much.
I will keep you posted on the results of the tests. All of the other lab work came out good, so that is a great sign.
If anyone knows what causes high red blood count I would appreciate the advice.
I am going to try and put this aside so that we can have a good Christmas. I am ready. All the shopping is done and now we are just waiting on Santa Claus.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
