My diverticulitis has flared up again.. after 4 years.
I started having a GI bleed last night at 9:30. After that I went to bed hoping everything would be fine by morning. No such luck. Two more episodes by 11:30 so we headed to ER. Passing blood about every hour to hour and a half.
They admitted me and will closely monitor blood count levels. If it drops too low then I get a pint or two of blood.
My problem is ever since I had two stents put in last October I’ve been on blood thinners.. Plavix and a baby aspirin. Getting the blood to clot will take time. There is no reversing agent for Plavix.

Still praying for you Woody! Any update?

Never was in any pain...just a lot of rectal bleeding.
I had this 4 years ago and it took 4 to 5 days to finally stop bleeding completely. Since I had the two stents put in my heart arteries last year and I was put on blood thinner medicine this problem was in the back of my mind. If and when I had this again I thought it would take forever to stop bleeding. This time the bleeding only lasted 12 hours! Lots of prayers answered!
It might seem weird that a person would look in the pot and see brown instead of red and exclaim "THANK YOU LORD!", but I did. He knows!
Thanks to everyone for their concern, prayers and thoughts.
