I Need a Vacation from Sickness.
Friday, May 21, 2010
As most of u know I have been fighting sickness for the past year now and spend more time in the doctors offices or the hospital to the point my grandson points to the hospital and calls it my house.I am not really what u would say down.I have been there I have been mad too.But now it has not just me.It is my sweet Robert as you all know he got laid off over a year ago now.He had some medical issue but nothing major at the time as he had insurance and he went to the doctor and he had his meds.Well being a man and one of Maine and the south combine to say he is stubborn is a understatement totally.
Since he lost his job and of course all benefits he has not really been well.But as always his way he would trug threw and deal.As he had to take care of me.And he is the MAN! Please! I dont care what your gender no one is immortal.
Well now we just returned home from 6 hr er visit.At first thinking he had a heart attack,To some sort of stroke to they really don t know.He was dehydrated and had a hard time finding veins.They are now wanting us to follow up soon as we can with our family doctor to be refer to a cardiologists to do a full work up.As they didnt see anything on the ekg and his chest xray was fine.But whether he is asleep or awake he feels as if he is suffocating at times.
He did it there and they had him on oxygen the whole time and they could see with all there monitors it was happening but why noone knows.And no one really willing to do alot when u say I am unemployed and have no coverage at all.So now we get to jump threw some major hoops to see if we can not get him in this program for misplaced workers that have medical problems but we have got to have papers from 200 years ago it seems.To prove he has problems and has no income other than unemployment to get help even though we showed them all of that in print but not right print.They gave him a shot for the chest pain and sent us home saying if it get bad come back.Excuse me what is bad.When u can not breath and feel as if u have been running and u can see my heart pumping away and my oxygen does drop.That is not bad not to mention the chest pains.But well that is the story
of life for alot of us these days.I am really just venting and sharing and asking for positive thoughts and prayers and sending us this special angel to watch over us all.
