My life has been stressful the past few weeks. Which is why I have not written anything the past few weeks, and I’m sorry for that. This blog is going to be more like a journal today, so please bare with me.
About a month ago my father was admitted to the hospital. He had an abscess where he had one of his hernias about four years ago, and I was driving back and forth early in the morning. Plus going to work everyday. My father is not the type of person that gets sick a lot, but the past year we’ve had two big scares with him. But at least now he’s home and feeling better then he has in ten years he says.
Once we finally got my father out of the hospital, the same day we found out my Uncle was admitted to another hospital. At first we thought it was nothing, it was his leg as usual. Then out of no where we get a phone call from my aunt. She told us to be prepared, because he was unresponsive, had heart and kidney failure. We went up the next day and it was one of the hardest thing I’ve had to deal with in a long time. I’ve never seen him like that. All he wanted to do was hold mine and my cousin’s hand (his daughter). He was in so much pain. I really believed he was on his death bed, but as usual my uncle always beats death for the fourth or fifth time. The next day we went back up, and he was back to his old self. They started dialyses and it was helping! He is now in a nursing home, and doing dialyses. I know that he still has a long way to go, but at least he’s still here.
I thought we where in the clear, but I guess as they always say bad things always happens in threes. Which leads to my third scare, my mom. As I’ve said in the past my mother’s health is not the best, so when something happens it gives me a heart attack I start feeling sick and I get anxiety. Last Thursday my mom had an eye appointment. We decided since we where done early we would walk to talk to her cardiology doctor. She was having chest pains for a few days and it was getting harder for her to breath. She had an appointment for January, so we wanted to see if there was any earlier openings. Well needless to say the nurses saw how she was. They checked her vitals they where fine even her oxygen was perfect. They got nervous and said it could be her heart. So they made us go to the ER one of the nurses even followed us just to make sure we went. When we got to the ER they did a bunch of test and they though it was one of two things. Either Heart failure or another blockage like she had last year. Of course I was nervous, but I tried to stay calm.
They did all the test and everything came back normal, but her cholesterol was very high. Which didn’t make sense to me, because she was taking a cholesterol medicine. They decided to put her on another one to see if it helps, and they have her on a heart medicine to help with the pain. We thought everything was going to be ok, but now they are going to do test on her. They want to see if she has Endocrine Fibromyalgia. My mom is at that point she just wants to give up, and says she is tired of all the test. It’s stressful because I keep having to keep her calm and keep reminding her why she needs to go through with it.
So yeah this is what my life has been like the past month. I’m sorry for not posting, and I’m going to try my best to keep up with my blog as much as I can.
