Ruth Update: Something isn’t right . . .

Sept. 2012, Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis

(ICK WARNING)  Mom has been vomiting for about a week now what is being described as a dark to light brown substance.  It’s just once a day in the morning or evening and it’s a small amount.  She’s also lost 10 pounds in a month.  Other than the weight loss and her vomit episodes, mom appears to be fine and doesn’t seem to be experiencing nausea, pain, or fatigue.  In fact, I hear she’s her normal happy self.

But a trip to the doctor was in order, and we were fortunate to get her in today.  The doctor doesn’t know what’s going on, but has ordered blood work and an ultra-sound scheduled for Monday morning.  Her gall bladder was tender to the touch, and he’s thinking that could be it.  Hopefully we’ll find out soon, and I’ll let you know when we do.
