.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal's entry is toward anyone in specific, I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess, and in hopes it might help someone else as I do.I do not pretend nor imatate to be someone I'm not. And if you might take an entry wrong and feel that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life. And if there is something in what I write that "offends" you, options; don't read, or realize that this IS real life, and get out of your plastic bubble and learn more about it! God bless you!......


Ok.....Yesterday I tried and tried to get my daughter to go to the er. She said that she wanted to wait until her appointment. I sent her this web site that a friend of mine had sent to me. She did read it, because I was on the phone with her.
She really hasn't been on line very much lately. She read some of your comments! I was sooooo glad that she did! At least probably in her mind, I wasn't just an over worrier and reading your comments DID help! She said she'd think about it. At least that was something....she's so hard headed! That kind of eased my mind a bit. Then my husband called her when he got home. He was doing his best as well. Finally she said that she would go....but not until 9:00 or 9:30! Her friend was there with her and I felt good about that, so she wasn't alone. My husband wanted to go with her, because I couldn't. :o( She would let him, she just wanted us to watch Kayden. She came and dropped Kayden off and her friend went with her. The er wasn't too busy, so she didn't have to wait very long in the waiting room. After she got back there, they took a urine sample and some blood work. The doctor checked her stomach and everything was fine! The tests came back and her white blood count was glad to hear that one, and all of the other tests came back just fine! Whew! He also checked the baby and she/he is right where she/he is suppose to be at this age!!! Whew! The doctor told her that she's just going to have a hard time during this trimester. After she gets out of this trimester, she'll be fine.

When I was pregnant for her....I had a pretty hard time as well. I couldn't get out of bed without getting sick. I lost weight too and was the same weight for 3 months. So, maybe she's going to be like I was. With my son, it wasn't as hard on me. But with her, it was horrible! So, she's more than likely taking after me.
My doctor told me that I couldn't carry another baby after I delivered her. So, I got my tubes tied. Then very shortly after that....I had to have a hysterectomy. I had the early stages of utuerine cancer! I hope this doesn't happen to her.
Praise God that she and the baby are fine! :o)

I really want to thank all of you for all of your prayers! Thank you so much!

I went to the day care center and I was there for about 3 hours. Yes, I was the youngest one there! They have a lot of things for you to do, but I'm not too sure about it. I'm not at all trying to come of as being crass, just being the youngest one there was lets say, different! There was nothing I could talk about to really much of anyone. I had lunch and a snack while I was there. I'm going to go again next Wednesday to do my best to give it another chance. I just feel bad that I feel this way.

I'm gratefull though, that I was able to get out of the house! :o) That was nice.
Today I'm going to having another new Home Health Aid. I'm nervous about this. I don't know what to expect and I have a hard time with new people in my home that I'm just for the first time meeting. This is my space. It's awkward. My meals come today as well. This morning my physical therapist came and I've been having some pretty bad 'shocking' pains. Mainly starting on my right side and foot and then radiating through out my body. This pain is so much worse then the fibromyalgia ever has been. I never thought I'd be saying that one. When she started getting those parts of my body, I just wanted to fly up out of my bed! She feels bad that when giving me the deep tissue massage and it really hurts me and makes me cry. It's not her fault at all. My nurse also will be coming today to check my vitals and do my medicine. I feel safer knowing that she will be coming. I only got 2 hours of sleep last night, so I'm really hoping that I'll be able to take a nap. But with all that are coming today, I highly doubt it.

Again.....thank all of you so very much! Comments DO help! :o) All of you helped to convince my daughter to go to the er! You are all a blessing!
I guess I'll end this chapter here! :o) Just smile and make sure you laugh! Believe me, it really does help!

I'm so glad she finally went.  Spotting during pregnancy is NOT normal though.  I hope your pains ease and go away soon.  I can only imagine how you may have felt awkward at the day care center.  And maybe this new AIDE will be a keeper and do what she's supposed to do.  This one might be an angel.

Hi Lisa you are welcome to my prayers always and Nena and family.I am so happy everything was good news.I would still try to convince her she must rest still even though she has been checked.I know it is so hard when you have another little one to follow around and you are pregnant.I hope you get on well with your new aid I don't see why not.I know what you mean about not having much to talk about at the day centre in age group.I too went when my nerves were bad and they were mostly teenagers who had tried taking there own lives.I didi my best to enjoy th ebreak away from the home but in the end I gave it up as I just didin't feel it was the place for me.So never feel guilty if you refuse and do not go.We all have to do what our own hearts tell us to.and what is the best for us.Well I hope that dreaded pain subsides in your foot Grrr and you soon feel a little better.I am smiling now for you and I hope you can smile back.It does make us feel better doesn't it now.So take care God Bless prayers being continued for you and yours.Have a lovely day if possible.Kath

Glad all is well with dtr!!!  {{}}
About the Day Care, I was thinking that...we have a center here open 8:-1: M-F where there's games & you get lunch for $1.00...I went a  few times last year...but felt very out of place. I AM older (57) but all these people were over 70 or 80 & already had their little I was mostly ignored. :( I tried to fit in, but unless I was there to minister, & I wasn' just didn't feel right.
Have a good day,

Boy, thanks for keeping us posted on your daughter.  That's great that she got checked.  

I can understand why you feel the way you do about the adult day care center.  I was thinking those things, but didn't want to jinx it for you, so I didn't say anything.   I hope that THIS home health care aide is better!!!

Always have you in my prayers.

It was the spotting that really worried me most re: your daughters pregnancy.  I do hope she gets through this trimester well and things go great!  I can understand your worries and am not thinking that you're overly worrying, from what I've read:)

I am so glad that your daughter is fine. I am also proud of you for saying that you are going to go back. You never know some of those old people have the best stories!

I'm pleased everything is OK with your daughter and her baby, Lisa. Sorry to hear your pain continues unabated :-\

I am so glad your daughter went and got checked out in the ER, as that may help her to relax as well as you for sure.  I also could not believe so much bad luck you had so young.  Uterine cancer starting!  But I do think the loss of such an important organ at such a young age could have led to some later health problems, too.  I feared that when my sister had a hysterectomy this could lead to worse trouble rather than better, and in her case our fears proved to be well founded.  The young surgeon failed to remove her ovaries too at the age of menopause as the cancer specialist would have done, and she developed ovarian cancer metastisized before discovered! I see a lot of owies still going on with your legs.  Gerry

heavenlybama said...

Glad to hear your daughter went to the ER and she is okay.  Will continue to pray for her throughout her pregnancy.

imgr8phil said...

I'm glad she went and got checked out.  Hopefully if something starts bothering her she won't hesistate in going back, but since everything checked out this time she will assume it would be the same thing in the future.  Anyway, take care and have a good Friday.

I am glad to hear your daughter got checked and all is well.
Sorry about your experience and the people being older than you.
When I was first diagnosed with RA at age 30, I would be the youngest person in the waiting room.  Many would tell me that I was too young to have this condition.  So, I can relate to how you are feeling with the age gap.  I am glad you got out of the house.
You are the strongest person that I have run across, you have such a positive attitude.
I wish I could be like you, so positive with all that you go through.
You are awesome.
Take care.

my best friend Lori was in her TWENTIES and on diaylsis 3 days a week.....she was the youngest by decades and she sat there for 5 yrs and did the diaylsis and came to care deeply for the old people....eventually she got a pancreas/kidney transplant at OSU. Maybe you will like it better after knowing the people better. Your daughter is in my prayers as are you.
