So sorry, Alice and I will be thinking and praying for you and your family, my friend.
I am so sorry Alice. Sending prayers and gentle hugs. Wishing you and your family the best.

Blessings to you all

Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes, you are the most wonderful ladies! I just got back from the hospital, it was so cold in that place, less than 50 degrees- I am still thawing.
Not one of those drs came into today, but one ordered an ultra sound for his kidneys, still waiting on the results. Still waiting to hear from one of the drs re: what is going on, like will they release my dh. So frustrating!!
We really don't know the status of my dm's condition. We have to make appt for a mammo and visit to her oncologist. She has been doing great for 11 yrs, surgery, chemo, radiation, then 2 different oral meds. The dr recently took her off the last med. I had always thought it was a lifetime thing, but he felt it was safe to take her off it.
My dear Marlee, Karen, Donna, Robin, Sassy, Sherrine, Sue, Miriam, and Luvzminis, thank you for always being there for me. You are always so strong for me when I feel my weakest. JoAnn, welcome to our family! I'm so glad you joined us. The ppl here are just the best, like the greatest sorority, if you will. They are a great band of sisters and some brothers, too. My dh calls me his 'Irish Babe', so that is why I picked it for my 'name' here. He is my world. Thank you for your prayers and your friendship, they mean so much to me.
God bless. Alice.
Dear Carnissa, Deb, Sera, and Mamanan, Thank you so much for your prayers and very kind words, they give me strength.
I called my dh last night about 7:15 to see if any drs had shown up w/ info. Five min into this, his endo came in saying he could go home. My son and I went right up, grabbed him and dropped off rx. They also took him off the heart med. Last night my dh was coughing, sneezing, and very achy and had a very fitful rest. He thought he was getting a cold from the hospital being SOOO cold. I looked up the symptoms for the flu instead. I told him we needed to make an appt w/ the pcp today. My sis called to see how he was doing, I said we are making an appt when office opens. She felt b/c he wasn't vomiting or having runs he couldn't have the flu. I felt strongly it was the flu and we were ck ing it out. We got in to see dr for appt. She took BP, low - tried other arm, still low. He can't take his BP med unless his systolic num is over 100.
I told her that he had the flu shot the other night at work, she said that could be the thing that set this whole dropping BP in motion. He does definitely have the flu. We were trying to figure if it was his insulins that dropped sugar too low and the BP - heart rate followed. Now the dr thinks it was due to this stupid flu shot. The flu shot that was to prevent him getting sick seems to be the thing that almost killed him. The other night he said to me he wanted to get the penicillin shot - over my dead body!!!
We also called the oncologist re: my mother. He wants her to go for a scan for liver & spleen. The test results may not necessarily mean it's breast cancer, it could be elsewhere or nowhere. She has the appt for tomorrow. Hopefully, we will get some good news there. My dm is outwardly very calm, she always puts one foot in front of the other and keeps going. Besides the fact I love her dearly, I admire her greatly.
I have told my dh so many times about the wonderful ppl on this forum. Even w/ all the things going on in your lives, you find the time and compassion to share w/ me. Thank you all for your goodness, you are so special to me.
