Lots of errands to run after work.., went to drugstore to pick up DD; special ointment,, no hassles at all today,, I think somebody wrote a note to somebody else!! Stopped again at dads house to pick up mail, back home, picked up empty gas cans, went to fill up gas tank too..'

back home to pay some more bills, had to call billing company: they sent a bill to me for moms December E.R visit,, I thought it seemed weird to get that,, woman was very nice, said somebody made a mistake and did not send bill to Medicare first..

I was actually getting my credit card out to pay it, but SOMETHING told me to call first... Thank you...

Hoping to slow down this weekend and maybe get to visit mom,, I am sitting here exhausted, keep falling asleep and hitting my head on the desk!! Silly...

I need that virtual vacation!!

    LINDA, I hope you and DD are getting better b y now it has been a ,long time. Were you able to go to the Clinic, was there any testing or diagnosis made yet.

I hope you can rest up over the weekend I did driveway with my scoop. The blower did not blow snow, it just upchucked and clogged so my trusty scoop was used.
It actually gave me steps as well as time woo hoo way to go.Pat

Very busy time .. we beat the big storm home yesterday when leaving Ann Arbor. It rained half way down there and three fourths of the way back until it turned to snow. Lots of phone calls to make, new meds for DD. All of her meds are not ready, had to be special ordered, so waiting for the pharmacy to call us back.. DD will be going back in the near future to be admitted to University of Michigan Hospital.. Biopsies, some different types of treatment.. teh severe pain continues, but we are doing different treatments onher skin now, lots of work, very messy and hopefully, effective.
It is along drive down there in very buys cities, two hours minimum, but the traffic is bumper to bumper most of the way.. in driving rain and high winds.

Our big blizzard turned out to be only about four or five inches of snow, but it began snowing again a couple hours ago.. supposed to get another 1-4 inches of snow today.

I am so exhausted, doing laundry and cleaning house to make up for lost time when I got home from work today..
I think I speak for everybody in this state except skiing or snowmobiling businesses, when I say we cannot wait for warmer weather and the real spring to arrive.

    Glad to hear the trip went well. Pray the new treatments work better. Please take a little time to pamper yourself, too. It's important to care for the caregiver.

We here in Maine feel the same way about winter.

Special meds for a special lady indeed. I sure hope she's feeling better and that you get some rest.

    Well , I happy to hear that you made it back before the storm - even 5-6 inches people do not know how to drive - LOL - Although I know it brakes your heart to see your DD in pain -I am very happy that the hospital feels that there is a procedure (s) that can be done to help ease or correct the situation. Prayer's to you both - Hugs Karen emoticon

I am up pre-dawnn to get luggage and emergency things packed, take out trash, etc. Organizing my meds, taking things out of car that I was going to take to mom.. THe snow here is supposed to begin tonight, BUT down in the southern part of the state it will be rain, then freezing rain both ways.
Waiting for DD to wake up so I can help her get dressed. Lots of blankets, snacks, pillows and anything overnight is getting packed.
I went to mapquest last night and printed out directions to office, will be glad when today is finished.. This is just a consultation..

    Oh you poor ladies,What a day lies ahead of you.

LINDA, just maybe if you tell them your distance away and how much discomfort DD is enduring and for how long it has been going on.
Hopefully you might get some blood tests done today. Have you got any records or notes to take.
It is going to be a long day for both of you. I am pleased you are taking overnight clothes just in case weather is too severe.
Be safe hope you will get answers very soon. Much Love to both of you Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Took DD to E.R. this afternoon when I returned from work. VERY good nurse and intern there were horrified that nothing further has been done over the years for this disease for DD. They took it upon themselves to call U of M Medical School in Ann Arbor, to see if we could take her down there and let interns learn and test her. Anything to regulate this thing. SH now cannot see, barely open her mouth, barely walks, skin looks like lizards...
We were in and out, I talked to staff where she will be seen,, I called in for work to tell them I wil not be there tomorrow.. We will leave extra early due to the projected six inches of snow predicted.
Please pray hard for her and the staff that will see her. I am getting close to wondering if she will ever get the right treatment..
We have a long drive to southern MIchigan and back tomorrow. I have never been there, so this will be an adventure..
If ever we needed prayerful intervention, this is it.

    Take care and I hope DD will be well evaluated, it seems it is long overdue for her to be tested and hopefully come up with a successful treatment.
I hope they will keep you well informed as to what they will do. Ask them to write notes about your visit and send them to your DD so she has better records for what has been done.

My heart and love are with you both. HUGS Pat in.Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Will be praying. I'm glad to hear that she's finally going to get some good care. If weather gets too bad, it may be a good idea to consider sleeping over.

Drive gently.

Isn't it encouraging to know that mud season will be here soon?

    I totally understand the snow, I'm up on the Wisconsin peninsula, we have several feet of drifts.

Sorry about your daughter, hope things get better for her soon.
