I love Spark Friends!

Thursday, April 29, 2010

I noticed that I had some comments on my blogs and didn't acknowledge people who took the time to support and cheer me emoticon-I am so,so sorry, I didn't realize.... emoticon to all who have stood beside me.

John-John got to the hospital at 645am, surgery due at 730am. Well at about 815am, the Nurse came in, said they unexpectedly had to use an instrument on the man before us, which meant they had to cleanse/sterilize the tool for John. Of course that give me the time to doubt if what I was doing was the right thing. Because John can't talk, I wondered-should this procedure just have been done in his office? When we did it last time in the office, too many complications followed. I was definitely getting nervous. John's oxegan has only been in the low 90's, and have had to keep oxegon on him 24/7 since Saturday. I took John to the hospital Tuesday evening for a chest x-ray which did come out negative emoticon-still why the moist cough and low oxegan??? (John's yawning now-be right back). Come to find out the pharmacy gave me a children's dose for his aerosol Treatments! So Praying that now since John will be pain free by tomorrow, and the right dose for his breathing treatment, John will be back to normal by tomorrow. Were suppose to be in the 80's tomorrow, and think we all need to "get out of dodge"! emoticon

I just had to Thank everyone for your concern/support/encouragement. John's brother Michael ordered a easel so the other day,I wrote John's name,birthday and his sisters and brothers name. John actually was tracking this!! (one Dr. in front of John said John was blind) emoticon-bedside manners anyone!!?? emoticon so anyhow, John and I will work daily with this---Thank you everyone, you'll never know how comforting all of you are to me,Thank you emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon-Kathleen

    Kathleen, we're here with you. Glad things are moving in the right direction for you and John. Keep us posted on updates.

    The easel, is that a therapy? Sounds very interesting!

    Coming in a little late on your blog. I can attest to the value of Spark friends. All of my friends here helped me through our bushfires last year and kept me sane.

    I do hope John is doing better, low oxygen is a terrible thing, my brother, during a particularly bad asthma attack, went down to 80. It is very frightening for the person suffering.

    Hope things are working out now.

    Girl, I know bedside manners are not what they used to be! It seems like now, a patient is just a number instead of a person who is deserving of respect and attention. I understand the need "to get out of dodge" Have felt that way myself alot recently! I hope all of you guys get to have a nice relaxing weekend. Much love and as always, you all are in my prayers

    I can see why you questioned that.......Drs.......I feel the same way.....wonder sometimes if I have done the right thing when I went to a chiro for my back, which by they way, I am NOT going to anymore! Yoga and deep slow stretches seem to be helping me a lot!!!! Will be continuing prayers, Kathleen. Let us know how everything goes.
