    My wife is with our son at the emergency room at the Salt Lake VA hospital. He has been having some problems and we couldn’t risk waiting longer. So far, it looks like it may be his gall bladder and not the MS drugs he is taking. We won’t know until at least tomorrow. They have run a bunch of tests and his doctors will be in tomorrow to look at the results.
    I’m in a motel with our little dog. Just got here, long afternoon it was.
    It may seem an odd thing to say, but gall bladder problems would be about the best news we could get, shy of ordinary flu. But the symptoms tell the old man it is his gall bladder.
    Please pray for Mike and his Mom.

    Sounds like one of the main hard things is just not knowing what you’re dealing with. When I have been in the emergency room it was for one specific thing. This sounds harder.

    Thanks guys. Yes, this one is tough. Mike takes a powerful drug to suppress the MS issues and that can cause all kinds of other issues. Like I said, a gall bladder issue we can deal with. Some others don’t have a fix. :(

    Thanks everyone, your throughts, prayers and smoke are very much appreciated.

    We just made it HOME! At 12:30 last night I got a call from my wife from the hospital. I hadn’t slept yet, nor had they. The docs did all sorts of scans and tests and found nothing visible. The thought is ‘acid reflux’ and that makes sense. So, after some treatment there and a big bottle of meds to take along, they discharged Mike. I brought them back to the hotel and we all slept in. Mike is feeling much better so hopefully this is the current diagnosis and it can be handled.
    We are all VERY tired, but happy to be home. Even the weather cooperated.
    Thanks again!
