OK, THE UPDATE I PROMISED

Friday, May 04, 2012

Well, I promised this but wanted to wait until I knew something more to report.
Some of you already know I fell out of my chair while putting my socks on. Just tumbled out like I tumbled out of the bed the other time.

Here I go with the promise. emoticon
The doctor said my blood work showed my potassium was emoticon so he called in a prescription for potassium. Then in a week I have to have it checked again.
He said that could very well be my problem. I had been taking over the counter. I have asked my internist about my potassium and he said it was OK. I am glad I went someplace else to have my blood work done.
They also checked my b-12 and warned me medicare might not pay and I had to sign to pay if they don't $115.00 but I had been wanting to know about it anyway. My b-12 was fine. Maybe all of the veggies and fruit I consume.

Then today a nurse came out from the PT place. She is so nice and her father is an ordained minister. She saw my Bible on the table and saw it was in Spanish so got to tell her why I speak Spanish. I am so glad she is a Christian.
Next week another nurse from there will come out and also a social worker to see what they can do for me. I believe God sent me this young lady and she asked for prayer. She didn't say but think she has marital problems.

emoticoneveryone for being so kind and concerned for me. I love my emoticon's and thank you for your patience as I wanted something more to report.

God bless all of you and

emoticonand emoticonfor all.

Irene

    Sometimes we don't know why God has us go through problems (little or big) and sometimes it is revealed to us at a different time, and it may be so that you were in the right spot for this young lady! I'm glad you are ok and I hope it is just the potassium issue!

    I pray that the professionals asking for tests and looking at your results make the correct conclusions and that healing is imminent. It's incredible that your faith remains strong God in our lives is the one element we can truly rely on. Praise God for the answer to our prayers and concerns. We place our trust and obedience in Him.

    I hope that between the potassium supplement and the Physical Therapy you will not be having any more falls. I couldn't believe that a test for B12 could be so much!?! Wow! Hugs and Prayers are coming your way. :-)

  Irene, right now I am believing for you that Holy Spirit will lead all of these doctors and health care givers to the right and proper treatment of what is going on with you and to be led by the wisdom of Father God and the mind of Christ with all knowledge and understanding and comprehension of exactly what you need for optimal health in the name of Jesus.

I didn't know you fell off a chair!!

I really do believer all is under control and you will get exactly what has to be done to keep you living a long, strong and satisfied life in the name of Jesus.

You have so much work to be done for the kingdom and you are protected by His never ending power of grace because His grace conquers all.

I am so glad you have Christians that are tending to you, ministering to you during all of this.

It sounds kind of confusing.

I bind that spirit of confusion of what is going on with you and loose the power of Love and grace to bring all the truth of this situation into the forefront and the health care givers will act accordingly and promptly with you in the name of Jesus.

    Irene, thank God that the issue was one that could easily be treated. Potassium has a narrow range that is therapeutic. Some blood pressure or water pills deplete it or for persons like my son with kidney disease, it can soar. Too much or too little can become life threatening. Keep tabs on this. If the doctor feels something is essential for your health care, you can appeal any insurance or the doctor can do so saying why it is essential. I had a friend that inner ear was the issue for loss of balance and she had to have PT.

Glad you have great health care professionals caring for you. May God bless you this day.

    Hi Irene
I think your report wasn't to bad. it seems like most people don't get enough potassium. I didn't know it could affect ones balance. I am usually at the high end.
I am glad you are having someone from PT come visit with you, hope they get the right treatments. I am assuming it is for your balance.
Glad your B-12 was good, I had to give my dad a shot once a month for 2 years, then he went to the pill.
Do you track the different vitamins on your food tracker? Problem with most things is they don't list everything.
Have a beautiful weekend

    Irene, I feel a load taken off my own shoulders, knowing you got checked out and that it is things that can be tended to. Yes, getting too much or too little of some of these things can do bad things to our bodies!

And I'm happy you had a woman come that you took too, hope she will be coming back.

And re: the note with my goodie . . . . I have strong shoulders my dear friend and my plate is never too full to listen or help a friend.
Have a relaxing weekend and take good care of yourself.
