As much as that makes me happy, the rest of the day has SUCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As I said earlier, Michael woke up with a red eye. After taking him to the doctor, and pulling his eyelid up, we realize the whole top of his eye is completely red. Not just veined red like bloodshot, but solid red. Something caused some sort of hemmorage within his eye. We don't know why, just that he needs to take it a little easy for a couple of days, and we're doing antibiotic eye drops to prevent an infection from setting in. We had to cancel on the birthday party they were looking forward to tomorrow morning.
Turns out mom had been flat out LYING to me so she wouldn't have to 'bother' me. She's been dizzy for about 4 or 5 days, her blood sugar is all over the place, it was _47_!!!!! this morning when she got up, we went to her doctor this afternoon and I almost LOST IT!!!! I thought we were doing SO MUCH BETTER!!!!!!
Her other blood levels (such as iron, rbc, etc.) are much better. However, her kidney function has been consistently going down over the past few months. She had a little bit of white blood cells in her urine, so he gave her more Cipro for a little while. He wants her to see an oncologist, even though the GI doc says he got all of the cancer. He wants a CT scan of her chest and head, since it hasn't been scanned, to see if there is anything going on there. He also wants her to see a renal specialist to find out why her kidney function is falling. Then he wants us back in two weeks. We have no clue why she keeps losing weight.
Needless to say, mom is back living with us, after only 10 days away. REALLY exhausted with this stuff and tired of everything. I wish we had more family so it didn't all fall on me. I wish my mom wouldn't lie to me because she doesn't want to bother me, worry me, or make me mad. Guess what? LYING TO ME MAKES ME MAD. TELLING ME THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL SITUATION WHILE YOU WASTE AWAY DOES NOT!
There are things I need to do for myself, but I can't with all of this going on. Especially with Scott out of town almost constantly. I need to get the neurotomy and possibly an epidural in my back. That takes me out a day or two. I need to get my tubes tied, which will take me out several days, so that I can start my hormone treatments.
When is it my time?
