I'm sorry to hear about your sister's illness. I pray that the treatments will go well and that the LORD will give you both the strength to get through this.
Love in Christ,
Thank you all, I am getting ready to go to the hospital and spend the night. My sister is in a great deal of pain. Her daughter and I have been her major caretakers since 8/13/09.
I don't know when I will be able to post again..........
Please keep on praying.
Dear Kitt, I am sorry for all your sister and you are going through now. You most definitely have my prayers and I am thinking of you and your family. I hope that your sister's pain will ease. God bless and keep you all.
My DH drove me up here last evening about 6:30 PM as we are to have bad weather today and he will come back and get me when I am ready to go back home.........for now I do not know exactly when but I will be here all day.
My sister is in great pain and is constantly nauseated and having emesis. The Team just made rounds this morning at 6:00 AM and will be making adjustments on her medications. They know which chemo med they want to start however she is to sick to start the med today????? We did ask for a consult with her attending and that should be around nooon time.
She is receiving Compazine and Zofran for the nausea and they are going to add a Scopalomine Patch. Also they are going to increase the Ativan as she gets 1 mg at bedtime.......how I wish I could write the orders. .
I am sitting in the Atrium on the 7th floor of the U of MN Hospital over-looking the Mississippi. The river is running fast down stream and I am watching the ice floes go by. The sky is heavy with storm clouds and I can hear the rumble of the jet planes over head as we are not far from the airport. It is peaceful to watch the river go by so I sit here and pray.
My heart is with all of you and please know that I am reading the posts but just not able to post much back. I posted this message in the A & P Forum also.
Karen, I will try to get an email to you sometime today........again your prayers are needed. It seems I have asked for more then my share of prayers this past year.
Love to all of you,
kitt, luv and blessings to you and sis, and family. may a beacon of white healingwell light shine bright at this difficult time. sending blessings and compassion.
Dear Loving Friends,
I am home today and I will be online. I want to thank each of you for your support.
Here is an update on my sister and I will not post long posts like this as a habit but I just wanted to share with all of you.
Just a brief update..............waiting for my sister's PCP to see her and let us know what the next step is in her plan of care.
My sister is in much pain again and they are looking at options for different pain med choice.
Me, I have been off Cymbalta since Monday..........feeling a bit shaky today but suspect that is due to my appointment with Pdoc.
Your prayers are appeciated and know I am here and support each of you.
Good Morning Dear Friends,
Thank you for the prayers and for the words of sympathy. I am staying home today and just trying to stay in the moment.
My sister Bev is having hallucinations now and that is making things even harder for her. She has pneumonia and the latest update from the physicians was no chemo until the pneumonia or infection has been confirmed to be under control.
The Chemo will knock out her own immune system so as long as there is any infections or she is having any temperatures they will not give the chemo. Meanwhile the cancer does it's thing.
I wish each of you peace and happiness. You are truly kind and caring people.
sending heaps of healing luv 2 beverly & u skitt. hang in there mate.
luv jamiee and buttons.
Good Morning Raniah,
I think perhaps you and are may be the early birds around here. LOL (((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))
I am going to need to work hard today in focusing my thoughts on staying in the moment and I work 3 days this week and therefore cannot go uptown to the hospital. I have to accept that the staff is very good and Beverly is in good hands.
I get frustrated as my niece likes to sleep in and she won't answer her cell phone until she is good and ready so sometimes it will be noon before I have a report on how Bev is doing.
I know I cannot let the little things get to me.........
For now I am just in a fog and taking it one step at a time.
Hugs to all,
