I CAN’T SEEM TO SHAKE BEING SICK.

I have been sick for about a month now. It started last month and I went to the doctor on March 19, 2014 and was given a round of antibiotics and some cough medicine. I finished the medicine up and got my voice back but kept the cough. I went back to the doctor on April 9, 2014 because I had a relapse and lost my voice again. I still had the cough and congestion. So far it has not turned into bronchitis or pneumonia, it has stayed as laryngitis. I still can not talk above a whisper and have the cough and congestion. I am almost out of medication for it. I guess if I am not over it when I go back in on April 30 for my check-up since the doctor put me on a new diet pill and put me on byetta.

I usually once a year get laryngitis, but the wind has been really bad here in west Texas that my allergies have been kicked into overdrive. That is what started this whole mess. This has been the longest that I have been sick in a while. I don’t know what I did today, but my knee and back is killing me. It might be the cold front that moved in last night that is making me hurt. I am going to call it a night and turn in. I will talk with you tomorrow.

Things are not looking good for my Grandmother

We had the neurologist come in later today and gave us news saying that they are giving her a 10% chance to make it. If she makes it thru the night she has a better chance. The Doctor’s that have seen her have been all doom and gloom. Her heart doctor was more optimistic that the others. He is also the one that suggested a second opinion. She is talking, writing her name, she knows who everyone is, she is even moving her head to the left. Not very far, but she is still moving it, she is doing more that some patients that have had a major stroke.

Also we found out she should have been on oxygen since was admitted on Saturday and she hasn’t, and she should have been in the ICU unit also. These doctor’s have done everything back a$$ backwards. Sorry for my language. It has just been frustrating and exhausting. I am trying to stay strong for my mother and sister, but each day gets harder and harder. Today I did not even go into her room because I knew I would lose it. I am already such a tender-hearted person that if I look at you and you are crying, I will cry. I will keep you updated. Keep the prayers coming her way, they will help. I appreciate all that everyone is doing. Thank you.

MY SISTER HAS TO GO IN FOR ANOTHER SPINAL TAP

My Sister who suffers from what the Doctor’s call Pseudotumor¬†cerebri (SOO-doh-too-mur¬†SER-uh-bry) occurs when the pressure inside your skull (intracranial pressure) increases for no obvious reason. Symptoms mimic those of a brain tumor, but no tumor is present. Pseudotumor¬†cerebri can occur in children and adults, but it’s most common in obese women of childbearing age. She now has to go in for a spinal tap to relieve the fluid build up in the brain to relieve the pressure. This makes the third one since she was diagnosed almost 16 years ago. She also has to see a heart Doctor because her blood pressure was very high, and when they checked her blood pressure on both arms one was high the other was normal. So now they suspect that she has a blockage somewhere.

My Sister also asked her Doctor about losing weight, and she told her that the best for her right now would be the stomach surgery. So she has a bunch of Doctor appointments today, and they are setting up her surgery. My Sister has gone through so much in the last few years that she needs a break. She had an Aneurysm and it finally shrunk down to where the Doctor’s could not find it anymore. That was a blessing. Then she was being treated for breast cancer. She went in and the test showed that it was pre-cancerous and they had to shrink it down.

Now we just do the tests and the spinal tap, and we go from there. Four years ago I was diagnosed with Pseudotumor¬†cerebri also, but mine has not gotten to the point that my sisters’ has. Mine has put pressure on my optic nerve and then returned to normal. I have not have had any headaches since. I still go in and have the pressure on my optic nerve tested to make sure it is not getting out of control. Now we just wait until we get the tests back and see what the Doctor’s are going to do.

MY GRANDMOTHER HAD TO GIVE UP HER ONE PASSION READING :(

My Grandmother is 85 and she had to give up her one passion reading. You are probably asking “Why she had to give this up?”. Well she was diagnosed with MACULAR DEGENERATION AND CATARACTS.¬†She is basically blind, she only has some vision on the sides. It is like putting your fingers in front of your eyes, and then adding a hazy film on top. She basically has to be right on top of what she is looking at and have a very high-powered magnifying glass. Then she might only read a¬†few letters at a time.

We used to share books all the time. She was diagnosed with this when I was in high school, this has been about 26 plus years ago. So now she feels like she is a burden to us, because she had to give up driving, filling out her bills, balancing her check book, sewing, and it is getting to a point to where she can not cook either.  I wish I could give her eye sight back.

The doctors say that if they remove the cataracts that it would give her some sight back, but it is an insurance thing. I have tried letting her use my kindle fire to see if she could see it, she said it made her strain her eyes. I will probably have to try a bigger tablet and see if it will work. I wish there was some new stem cell research available here in the US that would give her sight back. Until then, I will try what I can to bring reading back to her life.

The surgery was a success, and I am now home. I had to be there
