Thank you all for your kind words and prayers for my daughter's recovery, after several days in the hospital, countless tests, no conclusions... It was decided to run a Hida Scan. A Hida Scan is used for evaluating the liver, gallbladder, and biliary system is called the Hepatobiliary (HIDA) scan. This scan demonstrates not only liver function, but also the function of the gallbladder. It is commonly used to diagnose abnormal function of the gallbladder.
It was found at this time that my daughters gall bladder had failed. A normal functioning gall bladder will empty 85 to 95% of the bile, while College Diva's was only emptying 7% retaining 93 %. This was causing the spasms and terrible attacks. I wanted to run down to the ER Dept and point my finger in the face of the nurse that was so cocky and mean hearted to us, saying "I told you that her gall bladder was malfunctioning!" His whole demeanor was despicable the entire day we were there. He kept telling me...."Her gall bladder looks FINE, no stones. Are you sure this isn't a case of wanting to get out of school?" UGH. Jerk!
So, the College Diva is one of those rare individuals who has one organ fail and another less than two weeks later. Thankful that this is over, she has had surgery yesterday and we are home. She is feeling so much better, I am thrilled to be home, although it looks like the men were able to fend for themselves, leaving the aftermath for me to clear/clean up.
A mother's work is never done.... I am hoping to get back to blogging and catching up on all of your blogs!
Thank you again for the sweet comments and wonderful prayers sent our way. We treasure them and keep you all close to our hearts.
