We survived another challenging day and by the time you read this, I’ll be doing my damndest to get the boys to school on time. This should keep you busy for now.
Yesterday was especially tough for Lizze cause she wasn’t feeling good all day.
Lizze tends to get sick after eating and has for a very long time. We had always assumed it was due to stress or something like that.
As it turns out, she has something called gastroparesis and it’s actually quite unpleasant. Her doctor was concerned about her always feeling nauseated after eating and had her undergo a procedure.
In this procedure, they fed Lizze scrambled eggs, laced with radioactive marker or something. She ate the eggs and they would measure how far along she was in the digestive process.
She was officially diagnosed with gastroparesis, which literally means slow stomach. She’s spoken about this on her blog so click here to check that out.
Essentially, food takes a very long time to leave her stomach and ends up sitting quite heavily for hours longer than it should. This is the cause of her being nauseated.
Anyway, stress makes this worse and she was absolutely miserable yesterday. The only thing she could really do was sleep and wait to feel better. There’s no treatment and aside from diet changes, there’s nothing she can do.
