When It Rains it Pours

Firdt of all and above all, my and Richard's neice Suz (Joe's daughter) had twins 9 weeks early 2 weeks ago. Today I found out that her son had a grade 3 brain bled with hydrocephalus and needs brain surgery. There are only 2 centers that perform the surgery needed Boston and Charleston, SC. They have finally waded through the insurance paper work and jumped through the hoops to get him transferred to Charleston but we don't know when yet. Isabella will have to wait for a bed to open since they... Sign in to see full entry.

The House is Sold

My house has sold as it is to date and the new owners are finishing the rest of the cleaning, hauling off paints and toxics, metal, landscaping, steps, decks and roof. Blake's best friend's sister came and looked at house on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. We had to go twice because renters refused to let us see the upstairs on Wednesday. They said they were to get a 24 hour notice.LOL Anyway, I gave them a 24 hour notice and they still wouldn't let us in for twenty minutes. She has allowed... Sign in to see full entry.

Busy,Busy.Rest. Rest. Rest, Busy, Busy

I decided to sell my house. I decided on a realtor, Sharon Young, my first married name. The 61 five star reviews and the multimillion dollar houses listed on the her Web site was also a factor. After touring the house, she wanted it as pristine as possible before listing and showing. This meant that all the storage has to be cleaned out and the metal carried off and furniture sorted. This, also meant that Richard's nephew Joe had to come over from Asheville to help. I've only been waiting six... Sign in to see full entry.

A Reason to Live [ edit ] Somebody please give me a reason to live. The pain is unbearable and I can't stand anymore. Everyone's tired of me complaining about the pain but they don't have it so they don't understand. It has been years now and I can't do anymore. Can't work, walk, or clean or cook so why should I go on. I am worthless to everyone. I have no value anyone. I wish I could go to sleep and never wake up. I could drive my self into the lake but I don't want to die drowning. Why can't I... Sign in to see full entry.

Happy Nurses Day All Year Long

The Many Rewards of Nursing The first cry of a newborn baby. Handing a new Mom her baby to hold. Teaching relaxation breathing for labor. Comforting a grieving couple due to a stillborn. Baptizing their baby as requested and giving a lock of hair. Spending an hour in the morgue to get a picture that looks like a sleeping baby and getting acceptable foot prints. Comforting parents at baby's first vaccination visit. The look of surprise when you've distracted a child to give a shot and they didn't... Sign in to see full entry.

How Much Pain Can You Stand?

Saw the podiatrist about my two ruptured Achilles tendons. If I have surgery,it is a 6 - 9 month recovery with intensive physical therapy. If I had surgery and they reduce the bulk of tendon torn, it is only replaced with sutures that can cause pain. So strap on some quick lace ASO braces and go forth until the pain is to intense to stand. BTW, the right tendon could have reoccured because of the Trazadone that caused all the other tendon, muscle and bone pain. Rick ask if I could stand yhe pain... Sign in to see full entry.

My new buddy "Miss Peaches". Rescued her from the shelter last week. She picked Tuesday. I called the vet that she was to be taken to and they had no record of her. When I called the shelter, they said that the vet was backed up and it might be Wednesday or Thursday. I had already called the vet I would be taking her to and they had told me they would honor the spay voucher from the Shelter. I went by the shelter and for Peaches to be sent to my vet. They told me that the vet didn't honor the... Sign in to see full entry.

Calm Down

Sharon Woodruff Edwards shared The Humor Train 's photo. 5 mins · Tried as I might it didn't work. My B/P stayed 198/120 and the chest pain would not disappear. Denial didn't work. I knew I was in trouble when the Nitroglycerin stopped the chest pain and didn't cause migraine. Thankfully the cardiac stress test was normal but took IV meds to bring down my B/P. Thankfully I only had to stay for observation but I intend to take care of me and sleep for the next week. Rest in the sun and soak up... Sign in to see full entry.

Caling Dr. Kevorkian

If you have a terminal illness, there are drugs. You either get better or die. Either way there is an end point. If you have fibromyalgia, there is no drug, it is hit or miss, and usually you have to find your own way. No one believes that it effects, every joint, tendon, joints, bones, brain, and organs in your body. You have no immunity systerm. You have no self anymore. Where is Dr. Kevorkian when you need him? Is there euthansia kits on line? Sign in to see full entry.

"It Has Name"

I have mycoplasma pneumonia so no wonder I'm not getting better. After 2 weeks of a very expensive antibiotic, I was not any better. My white count was over 15000 with a shift and that's not good. So a shot and another round. A 500mg Z-Pack and complete bedrest for the past 4 days. Coughing yesterday very productive so I hope that means everything is moving out. Today is better and breathing better. No Jax until Wednesday. Still need to do a nebulizer treatment for today and my inhaler but have... Sign in to see full entry.

Stories from Childhood

When I was reading TAPS blogit, I was reminded about a childhood story. I don't remember doing this but was told I used to wear my shoes on the wrong feet and backwards. I have tried it since and couldn't accomplish the backwards part. I also changed my name to Gladys and wouldn't answer to anything else. I was reminded of this stubborness last week when I told Jax he had to take a nap. He had two choices get his pacie and lay on big bear or I was going to hold him and rock him. Jax's response...

I've been multitasking the last week. Snot, cough, pee; snot, cough, pee. Headache, nausea, and too tired to move. Saw my Dr. on Tuesday and have bronchitis then I got Jax's cold on top of it. We have been snowed in all week. Rick took the Rogue to work Wednesday and and the plant closed Friday. We alternated who would get the bed. I watched Netflix on computer and napped. Rick read a book and napped. Rick reads a book a day. Jax played in the snow with Mommy and Daddy. He was more worried about... Sign in to see full entry.

Fibro! How many years has it been? Too many to count. Relentless migration but still the same pain. Day in, day out, night in and night out. Will I get to sleep tonight? Probably not. What will I do tomorrow? Wake up in pain. Fibro! It has taken away my self-worth. Who is this person I see in the mirror? Exercise more “they” say. I can’t even walk to the mailbox and back. Fibro! Brain fog, joint pain, chest pain, stiffness, pelvic pain, memory loss, inability to read and understand, aphasia, OMG... Sign in to see full entry.
