Oh Barb, I'm so sorry you have to go thru al of this. I really don't understand why doctors are so quick to change meds. Obviously your doctor has you on them for a reason. So I take it that your doctor is out of town or somthing? I really don't understand all the things that go on with your blood but I know it is not good. Is there some way you could throw a bed pan at your new doctor until they give you some good pain meds?
sending love and prayers

I haven't been on much, I have been having back trouble and having trouble sitting up and laying down and standing, basically just living. Certainly nothing like you are going through. I'm sorry they cut the pain meds, is there a reason why they don't cut back on the blood thinner? It sounded like it was too thin? I don't know anything about this, but if its working too well... It seems the pain meds are always the first thing they want to take away. I hope you are ok coming off the fentanyl, I know I hit my klonopin a little extra during that time. And I hope you are comfortable at home and getting a chance to be back in your own bed with your family is the best medicine. I hope that maybe your new doctors will give a new perspective and more treatment options overall. I've never heard of pain meds thinning the blood, unless they contain aspirin, but fentanyl doesnt and if anything, I would think it would dehydrate you and thicken the blood. Antihistamines, which they mix with narcotics, do. Well, I hope what they are doing does the trick. I will keep praying for you Barb, and keep you in my thoughts and sending good wishes for you to get better coming your way. I just know you are going to get through this trouble and get back on track healthwise. You are so strong. (((((hugs)))))
Hi ya Barb, I hope you are doing better now that you got to your meds. I always forget that you get treated at a military hospital. I know when my hubby was there they had 3 difference doctors in 5 days because he went there on a thursday so with the weekend and monday. Yep. I get it. Anyway, It's pretty dog gone hard to be upbeat when you are so sick. Plus your head wants to do one thing and your body wants to do another. You need to be able to come here and talk about what is going on with you. So Nakita has a halter top outfit huh? LOL I guess that would be a shocker for mom. Good luck with the silver shoes and purse. I bet she will look gorgeous! Is dad going there to follow her around and chase the boys away? I hope you are able to find what you are looking for at the store quickly so you don't have to shop too long. Shopping can be so hard on ya.
thanks for updating us
love and prayers
I forbid you to feel like you are being too negative here or to feel like you are always asking for help. We love you and care about you so much and we are the ones that you CAN be negative with and ask for help and we will hug you up and make you feel better : )
You are a constant in my prayers dear one and I hope that you are feeling better soon.
Hi Barb, I was just wondering if you and your daughter found what you were looking for. with the shoes a purse. I hope you didn't have a hard time finding the right things and you were able to enjoy spending time with together.
