LONG week....why I have been MIA

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Warning kind of a downer type blog…
My week has been dreadful. I left something on the stove Friday and filled my home with smoke. Then the next day (Saturday) my son broke his collar bone in wrestling. Now his season is over and he is in pain a lot.

Now I have something in my lungs. A month ago I had a heart ablation to correct my PVC's and they saw a spot on my lung during a pre-surgery CT scan. I repeated the CT the other day and I have a speculated lesion in my lungs (meaning irregular shaped). It could be cancer or something like an infection. I find out next week. The lesion grew and it has properties of cancer but still can be an infection. A biopsy will need to be done to make sure. I have never smoked in my life but now I have something in my lungs. Just my luck.

I even have an infection in my eyes called blepharitis that causes them to swell. It started on Monday and I was too busy with my broken son to go to the doctor. Now, I have medicine for that too.

In summary, my health sucks and I have been eating badly. I have exercised the last 2 days so I am getting better. I just did not feel like sparking. I was tired and stressed from dealing with the broken collarbone. He would wake me for medicine and ice packs. He is on the mend now though. Each day is better. My mom spark friends know when our kids are hurt we hurt too! We are so stressed because we love them more than anything in the world.

Now I am a bit frustrated. I have worked so hard to get healthy for the last year and a half. Then my health goes to crap. I guess I thought good food and exercise would help keep sickness away.

I am working and trying and will never give up. I may hit a speed bump but I will bounce back eventually.

I am looking for the positive in the situation. My lungs have a lesion that could be cancer but if it is it is very early and treatable. However, I am choosing to think positive and decide I will fix this! What else can I do but keep going and not give up.

See I warned you this blog was going to be a downer….lol

I hope my complaining was not too much. The result is I will keep trying....I will NEVER give up.

    I hope things are looking a little brighter this week! Are you feeling better? Are you any closer to an answer to your lungs? I hope your son is feeling better as well, physically and mentally. It is so hard to see your kids hurt and even more so when you know it's taking away something they love! (I don't know if you remember my son getting injured during basketball season last year and being out for the season).

    HUGS and best wishes!

    I didn't think it was a downer either Karen!

    When will you get the biopsy done? It seems likely it would be an infection since it was so close to your surgery.

    Hang in there!

    To be honest, I didn't think the blog was a downer blog. It did hold some sad/bad news, but it also showed that during those bad times, you still have hope. I hope that everything gets better for you and that your son heals quickly. Take care.

    Hang in there Karen I am glad your son is on the mend. i will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you go for testing on your lungs. No matter how early or treatable, no one ever wants to hear the word cancer, that is stressful in itself. Be strong.

    emoticon When it rains it pours. I'm glad to hear your son is on the mend. Nothing worse than a broken child, they're too old to return = ) I'm sending positive thoughts you way and hope for the best with your lungs. They caught it early, no matter what, you have options. emoticon

    You have to keep going and you can't give up...fortunately for you, you already have a condition where you doctor monitors your lungs....someone else might have not been able to catch it until it was too late....lucky you. Having an extra 100 pounds would indeed make all of this worse and alot more to handle.....so I hope you take care of you and your family and things look better in 2013.
