Moving Forward

Monday, November 28, 2011

Well I'm waiting here waiting to hear from the hospital. They are suppose to be sending my dad home this evening; suppose it's his sugar causing stroke like symptoms. They are changing his sugar & wants him to see a specialist for his sugar ( I cant even pronounce onco something)

I volunteered today giving food out @ the church - it felt great to be doing something from my normal routine again.

I am getting another infection I have to wait to see if its gonna be more like the cyst that was on my hip or n like the thing on my back that they lanced & had mrsa in it. This is the 3rd infection in less then a month.

I did a little exercising today sore but feeling good. I've now tracked my food fro 2 days in a row.

Well I guess that's it for now, Thank you to everyone who has offered me encouragement and understanding


ADDED
Its 9:00 pm & they decided about an hr ago to keep my dad for more test but noone can answer anything until tomorrow

    Maga, I have been thinking about you. Thank you for checking on me.

I think the name of the specialist is endocrinologist. They deal with people with diabetes and thyroid issues. I have a thyroid that does not work right so I see an endocrinologist who diagnosed me with Hashimoto Thyroiditis, which means I have an immune problem as well as being hypothyroid.

Hope they get things figured out for your dad.

Delighted that you are feeling better.

I REFUSE TO GIVE UP - I'm ready to fight 4 myself

Saturday, November 26, 2011

WOW has this been a year for me and my health. After i had a spinal fusion in May I really went thru some things. Mentally, physically, and emotionally its been really rough.

It's been really rough on me having to rely on my hubby to do things for me (getting in the tub; washing my hair; cooking; dishes just to mention a few). I really wasn't prepared not to be able to care for myself & I couldnt sleep for days.

Things got so rough for me mentally that I got to the point - I did try to kill myself. My daughter gave me some sleeping pills 150 mg I took a bunch of them & a handful of my sleeping pills. I just wanted to go to sleep & never wake up. Instead I was speeding for 3 days with no sleep & then 2 days that I have no recollection of.

I started to feel better mentally then I got a sysct on my hip, that healed then there was a bite on my back that turned into a severe infection that had to b lanced. Even though my blood came back clean the culture from the infection had mrsa in it.

I M DOING FINE NOW

I have recently started walking again & today i even rode my bike. I do still deal with my depression especially as my granddaughter La who I raised for the 1st 6 yrs of her life; my daughter & I had a falling out & she will not let me c La or La's sister.

Now my dads health is acting up again. last Thursday he went to the er on Fri they took another toe & Sat they sent him home.
Tuesday he was back in the er to get more antibiotics & pain pills. Then he was back in the hosp on Wed & is still there. We are not sure whats wrong with him now. He is a diabetic yet his sure has been dropping to the 30's & 40's; he is also slurring his words @ the time the incident started he was talking a bunch of crazy stuff. He now can have a conversation but still slurring. They are doing a bunch of test but say it wasn't a heart attack or stroke. They cant seem to pin point what is causing all of this.

Well this is some of whats been going on since of been pretty much mia but I plan on today being my restart cause when I was coming onto Sparkpeople regularly it helped me alot.

Thank you to all that read this I truly do appreciate my Spark friends

inpsite all that has happened & is going on I M REFUSING TO GIVE UP i will continue to get better in all ways possible.

the ER

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Well I just spent 7 hrs in the er. After the blood work was done twice & the cat scan with the iodine, it is a bacterial infection - that caused an abscess

Good thing is no mersa but there is a possibility that I will have a few abscesses that will have to b lanced this coming week. I go back to the er on Monday for them to take the packing out of it.

It was an experience but hey I'm home now - I have to keep changing the dressing cause it is well lets leave it at its just messy.

They did the cat scan to make sure that it wasn't close enough to the fusion to cause any damage luckily it wasn't

The most frustrating part to me is that I cant care for it cause of where it is located

Prayerfully tonight I will finally get some sleep
Well i'm still feeling funny from the meds that they gave me so I m now heading to bed

    I hate the ER. It takes forever, you end up with a monstrous bill, and still have to see your own doctor later. But at least you got some relief. I have had those abscesses and yes, they are yucky and messy as well as painful. Feel better soon.
