oh man I hate meds but.

Thursday, August 16, 2012

I am on such a mess of drugs right now. For someone who hates meds and what they do to your body it is driving me crazy. But I know I need some now as at least I can walk a bit longer and better, and can sit here and type for longer than 3 mins at a time. Still a lot of pain but now have nerve pain and mucsle pain in back of my thigh and calf almost like the side effects of after a charley horse.
Anyway.... hope that enoough of the nerve drug will alieve the pain and then wont need the ocxycotin I don't want to be on that at all. I did have 1 less today and wasn't too bad.

Dd called crying today, she got the nerve up to go to the dr to ask for stress leave adn they would only give her 2 wks. She was so upset, she called her work where she had a breakdown last night and said she had a dr note for 2 wks all they would give her as she has no primary gp. so she needs to find a dr. and get a longer note. but... she wants to go on EI as it is easier to figure than her works policies. So usually you can get 4 month-5 months which would give her some time to get it all togehter. After she called we went down as her hubby was going to work, and she was distraught, this is a person that never shows her emotions ( only time I have seen her cry since a teen was when mum died and oh the dogs) so she wanted a longer note so got her to a diff duty dr. he listened and offered to give her meds, and a note for mental health and 3 wks. so she took the note and said she is finding a new dr cos he works in halifax, and she wants one on this side of the bridge... anyway she needs help and is so beat and tired. Hoping she sleeps in tomorrow, then after i go to my dr apt and physio combined, we will take her to EI. get things started. and then we will call around to see how is acepting new patients. this at least willb e a way to get her to a dr for maybe a checkup....
But I wasn't blogging about that just added that as another thing going on.

I am still doing well eating healthy even though my hunger has risen with the prednisone but it is onl y 10 days... whew. and drinking ton of water. So hoping to stay well even with all this JUNK CHEMICALS inmy body. I hate itbut know I need to get a hold on this pain.

Anyway this is a long stint and my leg is cramping up so off to take my 5 amitrypline and go to bed. I hope I sleep as well as I did last eve.
HUGS to all and cya in the am!!!!

    I hope you and your daughter both feel better soon. At least your hubby getting back to the renos should help.

    Seems like when it rains it pours. Now's the time to learn how to dance in the rain, or surf the waves of life. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Keep your eye on it.

Sunny Wednesday

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Sunny start of the day but supposed to rain. Oh well whatever, not like I will be gardening and we could use some rain.
Only 7:30 am been awake since 5 - wide awake. didn't fall asleep till after midnight. LOL 2 of these pills say they will make you drowsy. As hubby said you are wired diff. lol
Slept well once I fell asleep. Am in some pain so far but not too bad, have that spidery feeling on my foot, anoying but nothing like the pain. I go back to chiro at 11:30 and the truck is ready sometime today, as soon as they get their money from the dealer who is couriering it down. They have been spectacular to work with.

So few of our issues will be over and perhaps once he is not feeling overwhelmed we can get back to the renos. time is a ticking but know i can't push when he is like this. He is actually doing okay now. Think knowing the decision of marlo is over, and the truck is frixed and we don't have to pay much on it has helped.

This am i am going to wipe down the wall where marlos bed was, and then get mur to carry this small narrow table up there. I will put my african violets there as it will be just the right amt of light. Will also clear out my dining room some. LOL Then to get the 2 vanities and toliet out of there! ( and in boxes so even more room).

Not muchmore right now and my leg is starting so time to get moving.

Oh yea lol did I say i am 178 again today!!!! hoping I can eat this well and healthy all the time. Stress eating was major and if I dont do it now...

Okay major charley horse type cramp in back of leg. gotta move. cya hugs love you all.

Tues eve

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Okay I am not eloquent etc when I blog but I do blog from my heart. I want to thank everyone for the sympathy notes, gifts etc that you all sent for marlo and us. I am doing well, just the normal opening the door slowly cos she might be in the way, hubby the first night pushed down on his lazyboy and thought marlo was in the way... but that will leave later. and we are both fine with her gone for her quality of life etc.

Okay back from walking around. I have moved the puter to the kitchen counter the one that Mur put in that is 1.5 inch higher for us. Can type standing on one foot for bit, then walk and then stop etc.
Today was busy I went to the dr. He moved me every way there was, some okay some very painful. He added more gabapentin, upped my amitryypline and gave me oxcotyin for pain. also put me on prednisoe for 10 days hate that stuff but if it helps this pain. I said oh I will gain wt he said yea but it will leave again. He ordered a CT scan, and will look at those results, ( hope it isn't 8 months before I get one like last time) he also said GP are not allowed to order MRI so have to send me to specialist who will order it. duh that will take forever....
I also told him about long term and her ideas that she had a broken back and is back to work. HE doesn't take that stuff favorably and wasn't impressed. he gave me the paperwork for a handicap sign for car a temp one. also said keep the apt friday see how your pain meds are helping. so all great

then to chiro. he did a check and adjustment . last time I was there was 2008. he had the records on file though. then said he has 2 new machines specific for these issues. so it is $$ he said but helps. Okay will use my insurance then hubbys then mur said well if we can put money into the truck , we can put money into you lol so not sure how long or what it is. one he said was a stretching machine and one was laser. he will tell me more tomorrow.

called dad told him all this, and he said do you want o to go out for supper. since I was tired, had nothing out for supper said sure. so ordered pan fried haddock andveggies . no cravings for sweet at all.

So long day, painfull day being poked, prodded moved so much by 2 dr but if it gives me results great.

okay going to go lay down for bit, then try sauna, and showe and hoping the pain meds and other will help me sleep better.
will try to be here more but pain has totally kept me away.

HUGS and thanks again for all the thoughts.

A Little Dog Angel

High up in the courts of heaven today
a little dog angel waits;
with the other angels he will not play,
but he sits alone at the gates.
"For I know my master will come" says he,
"and when he comes he will call for me."

The other angels pass him by
As they hurry toward the throne,
And he watches them with a wistful eye
as he sits at the gates alone.
"But I know if I just wait patiently
that someday my master will call for me."

And his master, down on earth below,
as he sits in his easy chair,
forgets sometimes, and whispers low
to the dog who is not there.
And the little dog angel cocks his ears
and dreams that his master's voice he hears.

And when at last his master waits
outside in the dark and cold,
for the hand of death to open the door,
that leads to those courts of gold,
he will hear a sound through the gathering dark,
a little dog angel's bark.

Well have been in pain all day, achy ( nt arthritic but just sore from being sore ache) in my hip with it being very sevre at times. and then the nerve pain in my calf and foot. Seems one area has hurt all day
Worse than that has been marlo, she woke me at 3 wanting out and just stared at me at the top of the stairs, said I can't carry you she slowlly came down and went out peed and back in. She has been taking long time to go up so I left the door open at the top of the stairs and said come when you want. At 7 am she was still there and didnt'respond till I got to the bottom stair. she got up and walked farther into the basement ( they like to hide when not well or dying) so hubby got up and carried her up and she layed in kitchen.made her egg and tried to hand feed her, no go. she will drink. I said well and he said yes, so I called vet and she said he will get back you. well he did... but we both didn'treach the phone on time. so he is to call back. Since then dd came down as we alled said come say bye. she got her to eat and drink a bit, when they left murray carried her down tot he front yard she peed and came back in. still laying in same spot. So hoping he will go to the office tomorrow or it will be monday if she lasts. we just don't want her to suffer. but she isn't crying etc just lays there like the first 2 days she was sick.
thinkng if I am smart I won't go to the cornboil tomorrow. I am in such pain today, so sore and getting a tad scared about this hip. The meds didnt seem to work well today, wonder if I didn't over do yesterday as was in pain but they didnt rush on my account argh

sitting here i get such pain in my groin hip and lower leg. omg so enough going back to lay down and read.

Have eaten well since thre is more food, and hubby just brought home some gf bagels for me. I dont' want to rely on gf foods rather no grain type carbs but once in while . and has to be once in while at $6 for 4. geesh

okay night and hope you all are doing fine! HUGS
