I'm thankful to have all of you...

.....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 learn more about it! I also know that what I write in MY journal, that NOT everyone will agree with me and I don't expect them to! God bless you!......


Good morning, I hope all of you are feeling/doing fine today. And staying warm. :o)

Well, todays my 'busy' day for me. My nurse will be coming over, my Home Health Aide and my food delivery. And it's all spanned out to where I won't be able to lay down. Bummer.

Well...I'm feeling the same, nothing any different. I'm very thankful for being able to get up this morning....being able to still see and hear and touch things that are important to me. I thank God for getting me home from that doctors appointment. Because there is so much that I can't even remember that day! No kidding. I just broke and lost it. I'm still a bit 'touchy' but not as bad as that day.
That day is the only time that I've ever asked God, "Why?!" I've never before, I've just excepted what He gave me. This one is hard for me to cope with, big time! I think it's because both of my gramdparents had this and I helped them each week and month. I seen them go through things. But again, that was then and this is now. Believe me, I'm trying to look at this in a positive way.

I'm doing the best I can. The last time I wrote, I was going to call my nurse and did and I lost it and got hysterical while I was trying to talk to her. She calmed me down and I let her know.

I've only gained a couple of pounds. Whew! But, it's where I gained the weight. Upper body. I've been having a hard time breathing. My nurse told me to wear the oxygen all the time now and not only when I sleep. I still haven't gotten the blood test results yet. I was told that they would have them that day....nope! When I called yesterday, they still didn't have them. The test was to see if the doctor can give me more Lasix to help me. The waiting game! gggrr!

I have been resting a lot. But I do get up to just walk. I feel that it's not a good thing to just lay around, although it is needed some days.
I want to thank you all for your prayers. I really appreciate your help. :o)
I need to go now, my home health aide is here. :o)

Never take someone for granted
Hold every person close to your heart
Because you might wake up one day
And realize that you've lost a diamond
While you were too busy collecting stones.

Oh Thank goodness, you felt well enough to post an entry.  I am sorry you had such a bad day.  Is it possible that you had the flu?  I was worried about you if you came down with that when Kayden was sick.  Yes, the commenter was right, advances have been made since your grandparents' day, so there is more to help you. I think you are doing everything you need to do, rest, but do alittle bit to use your body.  I wish for strength for you.  Everyone who is ill sometimes loses it in the overwhelming emotion over it all.  Gerry

Thanks for the update, Lisa, I think we were all quite worried. Hope you finally get word about the Lasix dose. I can well imagine that things got to you - hope it all improves soon.
