Well, my theory that I was giving birth to an alien baby did not pan out. Ended up being severe dehydration causing gastroenteritis giving rise to moderate pancratitis (sp??). No idea how the dehydration happened, I have no recollection of not drinking. But eight IV bags, xrays, ultrasounds, enough Vikadan to keep House happy, and a ton of blood work later - it was dehydration. Hurt like nothing I've ever felt before, so I'll be drinking like a fish from here on out.
Served as a nice reminder of what kind friends and family I have. Thanks for all the help with this unexpected turn of events, and well-wishes.. I'm now home with some VERY attentive kitties who don't understand why 'mom' deserted them for 3 days.
