This doesn't make me smile,,,,,

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

As my regular readers know,,, I had surg on the 16th of June. I went from the 1st cast ,, which was hard,, but wasn't all the way closed,, to help with the swelling,, to now a hard cast closed in,, bright neon yellow. I need to stay on the bed, couch, or bathroom. Of course being single now,, and no kids in the home now (Why do they grow up so FAST?) I need to also get my own food,,,, and clean up the few dishes I use,,, I am concentrating on going HIGH protein to help the bone heal.

Than from y GDs ,,, H,, I caught the flu (thought I had broken my foot,, they happened at the same time, but it was the flu,,,, thankfully not broken foot, though it was NOT EASY to cope with ),,,,, than UGHERS the bed bugs from upstairs neighbor (He's had them now for OVER 3 MONTHS !! Finally they are going in tomorrow,, or did today,,,, but he's STILL A SLOB so at this time,, they are fining him at 50 each time the pest co comes,, and hes not ready,, after 2 times of this,, they will send in a profession cleaner,, at 500 ). I was sooo FORTUNATE that one of my 2 friends who took care of mine,, knew exactly how to QUICKLY get rid of them,, with a commercial grade steamer,, they DIE at ONCE ! NO time for them to scatter ! THANKFULLY none of MY neighbors have them from me,, which is great for woman across the hall,,,, and a few others on this floor,, as I am,, aren't well. I also bought a steamer,,,, so as I can (not the past 3 days,,,,) I can use it, but I feel sickly. HOPEFULLY I am OK !

NOW lets ADD onto this,,,,, a possible pressure sore on my hiney. I talked to the Dr today,,, I have neuropathy in my hands,, so I do not feel "hot" "cold" unless its quuite extreme,,,, I had afriend look at it today,, and tomorrow,, having another one,, the one I swim with,,, to ask her to plz touch it,,, I "think" but can't judge,, but I think it's warmer,,, so if so,, another call to the Dr,, at the moment I am putting lotion on it,,,, rolling over every 2 hrs,, as instructed.

SIGH !!! I asked a friend online,, Polyanna2 (Carrol) "WHen is it MY DAY to CELEBRATE again"????

Even with the weight coming off,, and quick enough,, I am NOT SMILING !! I've been through ENOUGH !!

I want this ALL DONE AND OVER WITH !! in 4 weeks,, I can be TOTALLY FREE of this laying down,,, starting next Tues,, I can be up for 2 hrs a day, but I am non weight bearing for those 4 weeks.

    Diane, you are wonderwoman!! I have never had the arrows thrown at me that you menahave, but I stand amazed that you have the friends, family, and wherewithal to come through so much!!! I think you should have a big party when it hits a low time, or comes to an end, whichever comes first!!! In the meantime, take one day at a time, celebrate the small stuff, and most importantly, NEVER GIVE UP!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

    I'm sorry you are going through a tough time. I hope you are feeling all better soon. Great job catching those bed bugs before they got every where. I would have had no idea what to do in that situation. Good to know that the steam clean works.

    You amaze me with your positive attitude. Life throws so many challenges at you , yet you keep plugging away with each one. Bed rest for so long has to be very, very difficult. Hope the pressure sore stays a small problem. Counting the days until you can move around a bit more.
