Surgery tomorrow....WOOHOO!!!

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

I am just taking a moment to let everyone know that I will be having my kidney surgery tomorrow morning at 11.45…sign in at 10:15…start IV’s, and hopefully finished by 1:30 if they are running on time, etc. Dr. K is doing the surgery and I am really happy about that. Saw him this morning, had to have check x-ray, ekg, blood and urine test done and all ready for tomorrow. Nothing to eat or drink after midnight… although I have to take my Fasting Blood Sugar first thing in the morning and take my kit with me so they will be checking my sugar during the surgery as they will be giving me glucose water IV’s. Also have to take my BP meds with just a sip of water. ..nothing else.
When I am finally coherent and am able, I will jump on and let everyone know what happened and that all is well. I am so happy to be getting this done and over with before Christmas. WOOHOO!!!
McKenzie called me this afternoon and wanted me to come to dancing class with her to watch her dance. I told her I would try. When I didn’t promise, she told me that the roads weren’t bad…it was just raining. Yes I did go over and watch here…when she spied me through the window, she kept blowing kisses and waving to me. I apologized to her teacher for causing a slight disturbance and she said McKenzie knows she has to pay attention. I explained what had happened and she was very nice about it. I had a very nice visit with several friends. I am very tired and keep falling asleep while trying to write this.
God bless you my friends,
Love and hugs,
Helen

POSITIVES:
As usual my blessings are too many to count but all I have to do is look around me and I see them everywhere. Ken and Richelle will be with me tomorrow so I know I will be well taken care of.
All my friends, family and neighbors are keeping me in prayer…a couple of them just started going to church after I got ill…I am very happy about that.
We had rain all day today…it wasn’t as cold as it has been.
Dishes are done and the house is straightened

Thank you all for stopping by, reading and commenting on my blogs!! I Love you!!!

The phone always rings when you're sleeping...

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

While taking a nap this morning, I heard the phone ringing. It was my new surgeon's office calling to set up my appointment tomorrow at 9:30. He just received my files from the original surgeon this morning and called me right away. Just got back to sleep (of course I was on the phone and doing things around the house before hitting my recliner again.) and the phone rang again. It was his office again...he wanted me to go for another x-ray of the kidney area to see if the blockage has gotten any bigger or if it had moved at all. He wanted to be sure what was going on. I will have to have blood and urine test tomorrow also. I think he may be planning my surgery for Thursday...just my guess. But I know he doesn't want to keep putting it off any longer than necessary.
The original surgeon didn't plan any tests or anything from the first test until my planned surgery and had no clue what had happened in the meantime... that it had grown another 3+ mm in length and 3 1/2mm around. I am so excited about having Dr. K as my surgeon. He is a blessing to me...God brought him into my life at the perfect time...to save my life. He is a Christian also and is a very caring person and not just as a doctor. What a wonderful man he is. He treats all his patients like he would want to be treated...who could ask for more?
I will update when the surgery is going to be as soon as I know for sure. It will take about 4 hours if everything goes as planned.
Hugs,
Helen

POSITIVES:
God's presence in my life
The beautiful weather we had today...62*
The wonderful sunshine
My family and friends...always includes my spark friends and family
My health and the fact that I am so much healthier than a year ago
Even my great outlook on life...comes from God's presence in my life
Too many blessings to list but I count them all

Thank you everyone...

Monday, December 08, 2008

I just want to say thank you to everyone who has stopped and commented on my blogs, left comments on my spark page and sent spark goodies to me. I really appreciate them and all my wonderful friends and family here on Spark. I would not be where I am today if not for you, your support and encouragement. I am getting my "thank you" comments written and delivered but it is taking me a while. Please bear with me and forgive me for being slow. I seem to be really tired and napping quite a bit, but drinking what seems like gallons to keep the kidneys functioning and eating as healthy as I can with no appetite...should be a good thing! lol
In the midst of all the ice and snow, Ken took me in to visit with McKenzie on Saturday. We didn't know how bad the roads were until after we were on them. The closer we got to her house, the more ice there was on the roads. Cars were just creeping along. But we had a wonderful visit with her and her parents. She did my hair and makeup and tap danced for us. This is her first year of tap and she loves it. She also showed off how good her back beds and back flips are getting. She isn't afraid to try anything. So much happiness just spills out of her onto everyone she is around. What a blessing she is. By the time we left, the roads had all been salted and were just wet.
I am hoping to talk to my new surgeon tomorrow (office hours Tuesday-Friday), and possibly get the necessary tests completed and maybe schedule my final surgery for the end of this week or next by the latest. God has been so wonderful to me during this time...if He leads me to it, He will help (carry) me through it...He is a true and faithful God and has always been there for me and will continue to do so.
May He continue to bless each of you as richly as he has me. May we all remember the reason for the season well into the New Year and beyond.
Hugs,
Helen

I Just Have to Share This...Unbelievable

Sunday, December 07, 2008

I just have to share this...after signing the release forms Thursday at the old surgeon's office, they were to get all my records to the new surgeon's office Friday morning. The old surgeon's office called me late Friday afternoon to ask why I was changing doctors and I told them very nicely that I had lost my trust and faith in him and he didn't seem to care about me as a patient as he never stopped by the hospital to check on me. He was less than a block from the hospital and couldn't be bothered with his patient. I have a couple of issues with that especially since the surgery should have been done several weeks ago by him, but he had scheduling problems he said due to the holidays when actually he went on vacation for two or three weeks. He should have told me the truth and sent me to another surgeon. She said that she understood and would explain it to the doctor. She called me back and said “well, you are on the schedule for your surgery on Tuesday. Are you still going to have him do your surgery Tuesday?” hummmmmmmmmm....no! I told them to also cancel the surgery for Tuesday and I would reschedule it with the new surgeon. What part of releasing him as my doctor did they not really understand??!! Unbelievable.
I should hear something from the new surgeon on Tuesday. I will finish my antibiotic on Tuesday also…so hopefully the staph infection will be gone and the surgery can be scheduled to remove the blockage. I am sure he will do a urine test to make sure the staph infection is gone before he does anything more. He was really concerned because if it isn’t, surgery can spread it throughout my body and they don’t want it to go to the heart or the brain. I really don’t want that to happen either…lol. I am very tired this week and have hardly any energy. My body is trying to heal from everything it has been through. But I am extremely happy to be alive and tired than the alternative. God is wonderful!!!
Hugs,
Helen

POSITIVES:
I am so excited that God is a very important part of my life

  I'm so glad to hear that you are doing better. I'll tell you some doctors just don't care about their patients. It sounds like the nurse is a little thick too. Imagine the doctor being on vacation when you needed him. If he really cared about his patients he would have gone to see you right away when he heard about you being in the hospital You will better off with the new doctors that really saved your life. Thank God for knowing and having the right people there when you needed them. God does work in strange ways, but it's always for the best. I include you in all my prayers at night . I will continue to pray for your good health. God Bless and Keep you safe. Also take it easy you are still recovering. Keep me posted about how things are going the good Lord will keep you safe.

    Oh, Helen, office staff can be so dumb sometimes! I can't wait to see my primary care doctor. She just moved her practice & when I called for my follow-up appointment, I was asked if I was a new patient???!!!!! So I tried to explain in the nicest voice possible that since it was a follow-up it meant I was already a patient! YIKES! The conversation went down from there when I asked to have my MD call in a refill on my allergy medication...She told me until I see the doctor for the first time, she wouldn't be able to refill my prescription!! Well, then I'm embarrassed to say that I finally lost it.

Glad you are moving and that you were honest with why you are changing surgical practices. Good luck with your new surgeon...and thank you for keeping us updated despite being so tired and recovering from this infection.

Blessings and get well wishes,

I am home from the hospital....

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

I just want to let everyone know that I am home from the hospital now. However I still have to go back and have the blockage removed from the left kidney. The original surgeon returned back to his office from vacation on Monday. He called the nurses at the hospital and asked what was going on with me but never bothered to stop in to see me on Monday or Tuesday. Since he was planning on doing nothing until my original surgery date of Dec. 9, my regular doctor went ahead and released me to come home on Bactrim since that is the antibiotic that worked toward killing the staph. The staph was resistant to the Cipro which I had been receiving daily…but that is a case of waiting for the cultures to come back to know which antibiotic will actually work. The surgeon’s office called this afternoon and wanted to call in an antibiotic for me. When I told her I was on bactrim, she was offended and wanted to know how I got it…who prescribed it, etc.
In order to change surgeons at this point, I have to go to the original surgeon’s office, sign myself out as his patient, and get my records and take to the new surgeon, and he will take it from there. So believe me, first thing tomorrow morning I will do that and will stop by the new surgeon’s office and leave whatever paperwork they give me, get on his schedule for a consultation and reschedule the surgery. I don’t think it will make a difference one way or the other because I won’t be finished with the antibiotic series until Wednesday. I would rather they don’t go messing around much with the staph infection still there as I don’t need that being sent into my heart or brain and scattered elsewhere in my system. I don’t know if changing the doctors is the wisest choice at this point, but I know that I no longer have any faith or trust in the original surgeon. So again I am just taking it one day at a time…one small step at a time. Life does have to go on and it is what we make of it.
Hugs,
Helen

POSITIVES:
I am just so thankful for everything that has been done …that God has given the doctors the knowledge and equipment to take care of these problems as they arise and that we have the freedom of choice...to chose the doctors, etc that we want for our care.
I am most thankful for all the prayers and thought s that were sent my way or said on my behalf… without these I would not be where I am today.
Thankful for my DD who doesn’t want to leave me for any reason…finally got some of that worked out and she went to work today
Most of all my faith and my belief that has sustained me through everything in life!!!

Hope the new Dr. treats you with a lot more respect. That can be as powerful as antibiotics! Rest up so you are strong for the next procedure.

    Helen, I'm so glad you were able to go home! And if you have lost faith in your surgeon, changing to one that you can trust is the right thing to do - it's important! I pray that you will gain in strength every day and will be ready for that surgery. Blessings! Ena

    I am so glad you are home. I hope the antibiotic works great & fast. You don't need anymore worries. Go with the dr. that you are comfortable with & trust. I know when I had surgery, I almost died. But the same surgeon also saved my life. To this day, he is the only one I trust to do any surgery on me. Take care. Saying a prayer for you. emoticon

    Helen, I, for one, am so relieved to read that you are switching docs. I work in health care and so many patients don't want to do that...even if it means better care for them! Kudos to you for putting your health first...

And what a wonderful daughter you have! She must have learned lots from her mom!!

Hugs, prayers and blessings,
Maurizia

    Helen,In my own humble opinion, I am very happy you are going to switch doctors. Lots of reasons, but it truly matters on how you feel. And your new doctors prolly do want to take care of you but for medical legal ethicical reasons you have to be the one to get rid of the first one yourself. Also for insurance reasons. Oh , I am so happy for you this is all getting resolved.
Now don't overdue with exercises and walking. Everything in moderation. Your body and system has been very taxed.
