Update on the family

So I thought I would update you on the family. My mother seems to be back to her old self again, which is great. However, she wouldn't tell me if she was on death's door. My grandmother was released from the hospital last week. She is currently staying with my cousin. I've only talked to her once, but from what I can gather, she hates the physical therapist who has been visiting her at home. So, things are headed in the right direction.

Now, lets talk about me. I am not really sure what the deal is, but I have been getting some HORRIBLE stomach pains. It started last week after lunch. It was almost like a churning sensation, that went from my bellybutton to my ribcage. It was unbearable and agonizing. Last night I woke up at 2am, with that same horrible pain. The only thing that helped alleviate the pain was sitting upright. I googled my symptoms this morning and according the internet, I either have a stomach ulcer or acid reflux. I've had heartburn before, I was was quick to dismiss the acid reflux. However, I do find it strange that the pain went away when I sat upright in bed.

Anyways, I guess I need to make an appointment to see my doctor. Any guesses as to what you think it could be? And just so you know, I've already had my gallbladder removed, so I know that is not the problem.
