Well That Wasn't...OK it was...Fun!!

Sunday, August 30, 2009 i go to the hospital cause my mom says my face is swollen and she thinks i need it looked into they take me back...take down the info...i wait another hour and the doctor, as he is walking through the door says you have "blah blah blah" trully that is all i heard...and how does he know i have blah blah blah without ever laying eyes on me before... didn't touch me yet...nothing... i just have blah blah so i told him to explain it to me in human allergies are acting up...(well duh) and i have an inner lower lid infection sty... uh...ok...he says between the 2, that is what is making my face swell... and explains the bump in my lower eye lid... so because of the severity of it i was not only given eye ointment antibiotics... but a antibiotic that i swallow also... each 3 times a day for 7 days...along with a heating pad on eyes for 10 minutes 4-6 times a day (this all said with a straight face cause everyone knows we have that kind of time to just do that) and oh yea...take that allergy medicine even if it does make me tired... and in his exact with it...ooooooook then....the good news is that my dd2 was wrong....i did not have a the other hand...i have meds to take for the next 7 days...and oh yea...i'm to just deal with the tiredness....i think this is the funniest part actually....ok...the best part was when the patient across the hall told the doctor (the same one by the way) that he was tired of taking all the pills cause it made him sick and he told the doctor to just shoot that suppository up his (the patients) a$$ and get it over with already...gee...i wish i would of thought of that...tehe.

    I find clortimatron to be effective and not as sedating. Anti-inflamitories help and avoiding.. Is there mold in your life? Make it gone if there is. dd2 will help.... she sounds dreamy.. take a heating pad to work with you.. (if you can have it live there. It's so good for back pain) In lieu of that a warm compress on a clean paper towel will do what he is suggesting...

The swollen face thing is serious that's why he's telling you to take the allergy pills anyway.. Im surprised he didn't use cortizone. Was Blah blah blah, anifalixis? Could that be it..

    I HATE when a doctor tells me to just deal with it. Ughh!

I am happy it is only a stye. I've had them before and they can be a pain. Here is a webmd article explaining about them.

Good luck and feel better soon!

  Is getting a third opinion an option? I mean, at least about the tumor part and your sty didn't just like grow on top or adjacent to one? 'Cause if one doctor said I had a tumor, and the other didn't, I'd be just the slightest bit nervous and curious as to what the real truth was, and I'd want to feel one hundred percent safe.

Glad you've kept your spirits up, and wishing you a speedy recovery!

Um, yep, it's always easy for Dr's with their pride & ego & all, to tell others to 'just deal with it, ect...'. I always want to tell them then they can come live my life for me & see how easy it is emoticon (thankfully my current Dr isn't like that... she treats me right!)

HAve a great evening, dear kitty, & take care!

Ok...Now I'm Scared

Sunday, August 30, 2009

I don't normally get scared about my health a severe asthmatic...i've learned to deal with many things... i know what to do in most situations and can tell you what is wrong with me long before i go to the doctors....and on the rare occasion i do have to go to the hospital, it's something that i can plan around my daily life... yes...i plan on i know how far i can push myself...this all said to say...this time i do not know what is wrong with me...i don't know how far i have pushed myself...and i really don't know what is wrong with me...this week has been allergy crazy for me...i have the sniffles, eyes itchy and watery... breathing a tad off... no big deal...until my eyes started swelling happens... doing what i can to reduce swelling...then i notice a bump underneath my lower eye lid...not visible...but you can tell when you rub your finger over's sore to the touch...but no big deal... won't go away...and now the lower eye lid is swollen i have my mom look at it... before she even feels the bump, i can tell by her face that this is not good... she feels it...and states...yep, your going to the hospital after church... she says my hole face is swollen, and yep, there is definitely a bump underneath my lower eye lid... and breathing...still isn't up to par...i don't think i have an infection... everything is running clear...(i but the fact that my face is swollen and there is a lump underneath eyes means there is something going on... i have tried researching it...and darn it...i can't find a thing that would help... i've tried heat and cold now help... not running my guess is still allergies...gone extremely bad!!!! but that doesn't explain why the bump and the extreme swelling...sooooo... yea... i am scared... i'm sure i will be fine... but will feel alot better knowing what it is for sure... i'll keep everyone updated...until then... say a little prayer for me.

And for the record...the LAP Buddy Challenge will go on as scheduled :) So get ready to be challenged, meet your team mates and have fun!

Another Stressful But Fulfilling Day

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Work was slow, which was good...with all the stress that has been going on with the home front...slow was needed... the boss was back to his good mood self... as for son... well... we are getting there... after i get home, i tell ds we are going to talk later... well...he couldn't wait until it ended up a family discussion...i think i handled it well...i did not lose my temper... even when he did... then he got sucks...and he just thinks he should leave...this one has always been a hard phase for me to get through... that is when i normally would lose it...but i took a deep breath and explained why running from our problems are not going to solve them...and whether he liked it or not, we were going to work through this together, as a family and ride it out... we were going to learn from this, which we could not do if we ran from it, and that we will be stronger, as a person and as a family because of it... i then repeated (as i did many times before and since then) that no matter what he, or any of my children do, i will still love them...nothing could change that... i will stand beside them...yes, i will let them know when they are dead wrong...yes there will be consequences...but i will still be right behind them and beside them every step of the way....with the girls, these phases were made slightly easier because i was there once myself...but these male phases... oiy... but as i explained to ds...that doesn't change anything...i still love him and while we work on this, together, i will be right there for him... yes, he is still being, he's still not happy about it...but he's moving through this... it was a roller coaster of a night last night...but all in all...i truly believe he will come out of this... and i did see hopes of the boy i once knew and the good man he will become...hopefully...before i pull out all of my hair or am left shaking in a

    The teen years can be hard years. I think its God's way of getting us ready for them to leave home. lol Growing up is not easy and sometimes its not easy to be the one who is responsible to help them grow up. But you sound like a great mom and I'm sure your son will be just fine. Try and enjoy the journey. Hugs.

    Playful honey it is the male hormone makes en unbearable at time. Take a deep breath sweetie, drink another margarita and soon all will be well.

Your son will grow out of his phase that you can count on as of the other men...well they will just be men.
Here a couple of chuckles guessed it men.

A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can be

so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.

'The wife responded, 'Allow me to explain.

God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;

God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you !


She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.

Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.

Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.

Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.

And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.

    Hi. I am sorry I just found your blog. Hang in there. This stage will pas. It is part of the becoming independent yet wanting to hang on to Mom syndrome. The closer you are to them, the worse this stage will be. My three, 2 boys and 1 girl, finally got through those years and turned back into wonderful, loving individuals. My hair started turning gray before that happened

    I feel for you JoDee! Both of my 13 year olds are starting . However, my son is the worst out of the 2 boys. By stepson thinks it is a joke but his comments hurt. I keep thinking about my nephew and how mean and terrible he was growing up and now as a 27 year old man he is a wonderful caring respectful person. Don't give up hope! He is trying to figure out his place among all the women in your family. Would your DD1's husband or your brother talk to him maybe? I always find that with my girls if they go to be too much for me I would have my BFF talk to them and then she would listen and give them different advice. Of course, she always told me what was going on but I NEVER told them! This too will pass mom!

    I don't have a son but I am sure that he will eventually get back to being a sweetheart again. Seems as though they go through these phases. As far as horn dogs, there really are good men out there. But they are few and far between. Just keep looking....hugs to you.

    Well I don't know how old your son is but it could just be a stage that he is going through himself, you know, trying to find himself and where he fits in in the world. As for men, I agree with the first post, don't give in to them , those kind of men are only in it for themselves and they are dogs. Save yourslef for someone who is worthy and you will feel better for it.

Good luck to you, stay strong and keep the faith and this too shall pass.

    Hope is here. My son (24) is starting to be the sweet little (now not so little) guy I once knew. I have many years of memories of my son with his eyes lite up running to "Mommy". They have to get surly to find there own way. And you have to let them. Cuz if you don't they don't grow up to be the man you would like him to be.
About the horn dogs that are plaguing your life, that is just life. If you don't give them fuel (any reaction when it comes to horn dogs) they will find some one else to play with. It gets better as you get older. In my case I learn to "shut them down" fast.
I know from your tone that you and your son have a lot of love trust it.
