Monday long day but better than we thought for ds

Monday, December 10, 2012

Well I was on the phone talking to sister in law with the heart problems, via cell as we have free long distance and hubby was on phone and all I heard is yes we will be right there, take you to the hospital. So said gotta go. Ds has had a bad cold for few days but only feeling really bad at night. Last night around 3 or so started getting pain just lower abd. Thought oh no a fissure etc from his crohns but didn't feel the same. Wasn't able to sleep well, Thomas woke early and ds went to bathroom and eeeek red urine. so drank asked Anna to get up with him as Thomas was falling back asleep. At 10 he called said was going to wait and see if he felt better but his urine was blood and could we take him to emerg. in halifax. Sure of course.
So he called both his jobs, not cming in etc. we got to hosp. around 10:20 waited, they took him after a bit, then he texted us, I am in another room waiting had blood work but you can come back here. So we did and we waited and waited and waited...... then about 3 hrs later the dr went by and said di you have your CT scan? No one saw me since you and that was if the results of the blood work... anyway then got a CT scan rather quickly waited a bit more for dr to read, someone came back said your white blood cell count is fine ( WHEW as he was concerned he may have an inflamation brewing elsewhere) but you have a kidney stone 5 mm, which is right where we decide to blast it or leave it for you to pass. it has gone through to the bladder allready so now it is just to pass. So they gave him dilaudid, and flafonox and sent him home drink water....... Anyway. he got his meds and such and we got him home. so yea we don't pay but we wait, good dr, good stuff when you get it just you wait.
thank God as he woldnt be able to afford a scan etc. so we will continue to wait here in Canada. lol
Meanwhile today was the day dd puppy, Allies sister was getting anethetized for a needle i her belly to her bladder to check what all this infections are. So she got her hubby to drop zuri off and were going to spend some time with dd as she was worried then go with gher to get the dog. Ended up she peed on the table so had to keep her with lots of water to get more in her bladder. did it around 4 and we were on the way home when she called to help her.

Hubby went home, we traded seats, he went in house to take care of allie ( dd had come down via grampa picking her up to let allie out for us ) and I took her to the vet.

Hubby was stressed from his anxiety ( hates hospitals and driving home at 5 pm rush hr, rain and dark. and wondering about ds) so he just wanted to go home. I wasn't stressed but we ate at burger king as hubby and ds were starving whhile we waited the half hr for his meds to be ready at the pharmacy. So right ater I ate I got a super headache above my rt eye, still have it 3 hrs later. But funny cos while we were sitting tehre, I had brought a book to read, and when not reading I was watching evryone and thinking yea I wouldn't mind working here. Ironically enough,e ven though I was hospitalized a ton as a child and have had many surgries, I dont mind working ot being with people in hosp. Even with mum when she was dying although the situation was hard, the hospital itself I dont mind.

So hubby is watching tv, and I am minding the noise, but will soon be going to bed. I can't beat this headache. So thankful that ds knows what it is, they aren't super concerned and hopefully all will be well.
Tomorrow we go to visit our friends in the valley so there goes another day. OMG OMG I know today was unievitable and could have been so much worse, adn tomorrow we have had it planned fof weeks but I so want things done. oh well thats life and I am thankful cos ds has had so many health issues.
gotta go this isn't helping myheadache and the tv will only get louder as the voice will be on and he will put on surround sound. NIGHT LOL

Sunny sunday Day 67

Sunday, December 09, 2012

And I thought hmmm when I get my knee done, I will be breaking my streak! Imagine me thinking about BREAKING one, I haven't had one to break that has gone on this long. lol

So good am, walked with Allie, had a nice very quiet walk, early Sunday am. Later hubby got up and took her around the block!!! think it may have had somethign to do with me saying I am trying hard to teach her to heal but not always strong enough to make her not pull. She is doing better and even listened when a girl walked by - she kept heeling!

Went for breakfast, so so getting to really not like it. Hubby does but I haven't much choice on the menu. Also he got ticked about something, but it is fine now and we got a bit done. Got a great deal on bil gift, was 35, shelf said 27 came up 20 so was 24 or so with tax! yes good as we aren't supposed to spend more than 25-30 and was wondering why she said he wanted that when it was that much over our limits. oh well fine and fun.

Now going to go sort out some stuff and throw it out, garbage day tomorrow.
May be back later, I am hoping a spark friend will reply to a challenge I put out to her.......

HUGS and off to get a bit more done and feel even better about this mess.

I chipped away at this mess some today too. It takes way too long and doesn't put a dent in it.

Day 65 on walking streak

Friday, December 07, 2012

I honestly can't believe it is 65 days since we have gotten Allie. She is learning a lot and doing better, growing a lot too 27lbs now at 4 months on the 3rd of this month. Funny to watch her with 2 toys at the same time, Must get some new pics of her.

Well still not what I would call depressed but blah. I wanted to do a bit of decorating tonight, but can't get at the cupboard to get the stuff out for paint and stuff in the lower hall.

Did drive the crew to the legion stayed for one pop and visit as dd friend and her hubby were there too. Then I came home and walked allie, fed her and myself then went and picked them up. Was fine then read a few blogs got blah lol sometimes it really doesn't take much. Hubby swears I am bi polar cos I get so down but I don't have highs and no other tendencies just feel low fast and it goes usually fast even within half hr. If I am down just look at decorating mags and I will be fine most time.

Got winter boots, most were on sale but did find one pair on sale that felt good, then tried some others then baack to them and my toes on my L foot felt squished. Finally found a pr not in love with the look but they didn't hurt anywhere and with the square toe box I have ( my toes are all nearly the same length I don't have the reg shaped foot, and it is wide and high instep I am so happy if whatevr is on my foot doesnt hurt. Also hubby found a warm pr of slippers so now my feet shouldn't ache.

Biggest new of the day.. Long term called. Asked how I was, etc. told her that I had to get a knee replacement... ohhhhh. Then said that the functional assesment was done, that she suggested I may never be able to get back to that job but should be assesssed to do 3-4 hrs a day 4 days a week... sedentary. I said well interesting, cos she dint' have me sit for any length of time or do any type of desk things and I can't sit long cos of my back. OH are you still going to chiro... NO I told you I haven't the $$ for it. Oh maye they will give you a discount, hello maybe since I have said that my back is much worse since no chiro... you can give me more chiro. anyway. So wondering what will come of this now that I have to get my knee done told her 1.5 years to wait and 9 months to year to recuperate.
Some of the people at the legion told me to call and say you want on his cancellation list and maybe can get done in 5 months. So think once spring starts I may do this, I really don't want it done in winter. ( but who knows they may call me next winter so whatever). I told the guy who has both knees done at the same time who is 65. that I wanted time to strengthen and stuff he said yea and write that letter, and clean the house, and go visit and ..... lol he said I know what you are doing. I said oh yea for sure terrified, but do want more strength.

DD friend said tonight at the legion, so xmas eve your house right? I said well I am living in boxes, haven't any decorations, but give me a week and let me see, DD said we can do it at my house. Anyway will see.

Talking to dil today for what all they want. and having a problem getting Thomas boots, he has a high instep and wide feet ( gee sound familiar?) so told her instead of grampa ( dad) giving them a gift cert to a certain store, then he can give $ towards his boots. She said great. So will get Eva more clothes from dad and then give Anna $ as she said she wants some new stuff and that is fine. Lisa still no idea, mabye can of paint.
Told dad tonight I would take the $ for my boots, and the gifst out of his account, he said okay and what about chris and Mike I said you got them the heaters... oh yea wellllllll. LOL Geesh scrooge then forgets LOL

Well best go check the flyers and see what all is on sale that I can get for them. I will go to the local bookstore and get both kids a book and she said they didnt need toys. So will do the book instead.

Thanks for reading, feel better now and hope you all had a great day and have a super weekend. HUGS

    Great that you are able to lift your spirits. Friday was a much better day for me too. I hope you didn't read my post the other day as it was very negative. My new one is more positive. Hope your Saturday is great.

    Probaby not bi-polar but there could be an imbalance some where. Such as a vitamind D deficiency. Or possibly estrogen imbalance?

    Would love to see pictures of Allie. I feel blah too. I need to sleep for a day or two.

The decorating magazines sound good to me too. I have not looked at any for some time. It would be fun.

My feet are shaped similar to yours. It's hard to find shoes to fit. I buy wide ones.

BAH HUMBUG! and yes to day 64

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Okay in a foul mood so just don't read or ignore most of this as it will pass. Fitbit says I ddin't sleep well so perhaps that is some, haven't slept well in a few weeks. Need a night of not waking 10-16 times a night either to fix the pillow between my legs, or to try to roll or move without pain in my back or knees. whatever I want to sleep.
Got the puppy walked x2, wasn't in the mood but what can you do, she needs to go out, the back yard isn't ready so whatever. Now stop being like that, cos thanks to those walks you have lost wt, and had some good fun walks. Glad she is asleep now. lol
My house is driving me NUTS. Still a mess, still boxes still needs a adeeeeeeeep clean. and time is awasting... I have no interest in the holidays most years this one is worse. I find it so friggin commercialized and actually foolish. Why should I pay $ for a house for my bil to decorate with when he has over 140 and next year may not even put them up. Why should we wrack our brains for something for sil who has a shoppiong addiction and needs for nothing. Lets just say glad they draw names on hubbys side cos if I had to buy for them all omg. now mil got her a gift cert cos she wants to start oil painting again. Dad no idea maybe an ereader as books are getting heavy. US well the new chair, and got hubby 2 flanel shirts and me a pr of slippers and a top. We will do that and have it for xmas.
kids no idea.. may give dd and her hubby $ to go towards the puppys vet bill. Other kids and grandkiids no idea. Got Thomas and Eva an outifit and will find a toy present. Ds wants to borrow our wii as dil thinks thomas will like it. Good grief. whatever.
As I said in a diff post, I am not a grouch, but never have had the xmas spirit, I swore I wouldn't be like this as my mum HATED putting up the tree, decorating etc. asnd now the past few years I could care less. in fact I actually thought OMG wish we could be in the RV away from all this and you all know how much I am unsure about that.

OKAY RANT OVER. Tody is going to be a good day, I will get some work done on this house, I will find time for me. I think that is part of it, seems always something, wake up to dog wanting out, dad wanting socks on... that isn't much but seems to be getting to me that I am resenting it. So today when hubby gets up, I am going to do my knee exercises, and get in the shower...
After I am hoping he will organize a bit of the shed so he can take more stuff out therre then perhaps we can doa bit down stairs. Later he has to give blood at 1 something then will do nothing as he will be tired and they say nothing streneous.
Sigh........ hate these type of days but it is in me to turn it around. Now don't even have time to check emails gotta go finish what I was doing before I started complaining.
LOL I will make it better, and sorry for being a grouch, and blah. I am thankful for the things that count...
the measure of health I have, and my family has ( that coud be worse for sure)
the amount of money I do have
my kids and grandkids
Allie who makes me move and laugh and is learning to stay down when not excited etc. and to heel a bit.
Dr who can helpwith my knee
insurance that will start back up in Jan so I can go to chiro again.... want to e stretched.
and now turn this off and get stuff done.

    I woke up a grouch and stayed that way all day. Thankfully the day is over and my husband is thankful I rarely get grouchy lol.. I do love Christmas and decorating but I'm finding as I get older it takes me longer and the acrobatics I have to do to get all my hanging decorations up hurts my body. . I'm cutting back on my decorating this year. Hoping Friday finds us both happier emoticon

Way to go with all the walking you are doing. A dog needs a walk and its helping you establish a great walking habit

I read all of your blog. Guess I was in the mood to read a vent! lol.
I hope you will feel better as the day goes on. Having renovations is SO tough. I can imagine you get fed up with it. BUT hang in there, take good care of yourself. Make sure you enjoy your shower.

Day 63 wow

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Damp and not a great day pain wise, but we still have to walk, well Allie thinks so LOL She would have went for a nice long walk this eve, as it is fairly mild but my knees are sore. Busy girl some eves she sleeps most of the evening and then goes to bed no problem, others she wants to play or run or just sit ON you. lol

DD has found out that Zuri, Allies sister, hasn't any serious kidney problems, but they still aren't sure why the bladder infec. or UTi as soon as she isn't on any meds. So blood work today and then mabye a test where they sedate her and get the urine from her bladder... aww and $$$.

Got the backsplash area and the other wall of the "living room area" of dads part. Now hubby has to make more room in the shed for the remaining tools and we can get it more organized. At least put up his table. He will be glad I am sure, as will we. Had him come up for supper as he has no food down there and no hotplate yet to work with.

Tomorrow hubby has to donate blood in the afternoon, so not much then. Perhaps a bit before he goes. I hope but think it is to rain not sure. I just want the door to his bedroom on, the trim up so he can put on the closet doors and then I don't care cos the big stuff is out of my way.
BUT dad better get on the ball, the woman ( older than I am) that works for that agency that is to houseleeping right now, has to be there 3 hrs 2x wk and dads bedroom floor needs to be swept and washed but really swept, murray mentioned it to him, he agreed and yet all she did cos thats what he wanted.... was the dishes. then she sat and looked at pics on line with him of my daugthers brother in laws photo studio. ARGH i went down this am to put his support hose on and said eww she didnt do well sweeping. she didnt I didnt ask... OMG you can see crumbs infront of his dresser etc. Well we will be making a schedule if he can't think for himself. I will not have animals or bugs cos he doesn't care. ARGH

Okay rant over, now going to get a nice cup of tea. Cya later! OH btw someone asked... and YES i am still doing my knee exercises!
