I'm in the hospital

We didn't make it to the ER till about 3pm. The same time as about 4 ambulances and the Emergency Helicopter. We had to wait almost 2 hrs just to get to a room.
This time I didn't have every test in the book done, just a x-ray and CT Scan. They were both fine. After giving me the IV form of my home pain med, and realzing that that wasn't going to help, they bumped me up to IV form fentanyl, which is the strongest pain med there is. I'm still hurting, but not as bad.
I just got moved into a room and I am waiting for the DR to come and chat.
Hopefully tomorrow we can talk to my surgeon about taking out my feeding tube and putting in something called TPN, which is part IV and part feeding tube, but they use and vein and the bloodstream and the "food" is liquid. We want this because it will give my ENTIRE digestive system a chance to calm down and maybe heal itself.

Please continue to keep me in your prayers and for the Dr.'s and nurses for wisdom to treat me.
