`Oh my HW family! I would give you all hugs but it hurts too much right now. I did get to primary doc's office today. My mom had an appointment with him so I kinda highjacked her visit. They put me with his NP and I found out I cracked 4 ribs but they didnt puncture anything. So he got me a elastic sorta of cumberbund(sp) and that is helping. I also got a mondo dose of toradol and they upped my morphine by an extra pill and put me on flexeral to go with the baclofen I already take and told me it would be about
6 weeks till the ribs are healed. My doc is seeing me on Monday to check on me and I will get my reg refills then.
I gotta say its been nice to post. It takes me awhile but I need this right now and I dont take anything you guys tell me the wrong way. I have not takin care of me but always put family 1st. Sometimes it cant be avoided like tonight at 10:30 my mom called crying because my brother who is visiting from Kansas,got drunk and went to a local bar but not before he could manage to lock the bathroom door and my mom was frantic not knowing what she was going to do. She said she hated to bother me knowing how I was feeling tonight but didnt know who to call. I called her back and told her I would come and Jay got pissed when he heard what my brother had done and by the way he said he didnt mean to sound callus early this morning when I told him about
falling and blew it off. Unfortunately he has become used to me takin care of the problems when it comes to me. I guess he was sorta right since I found a way to the doctors. We dont have a car so he couldnt have taken me. I was somewhat dissapointed that he seemed uncaring. My docs NP was shocked about
how often I was falling at night. I need to be more careful about
staying up too late or at least take some books to bed with me so Im not up walking around.
I do own a cane but its hard to grip it with my arms being weak. I have thought about
trying to get a scooter at least so I can get around during the day. I tell you I dont know how I put so many miles on this body of mine. Whats that saying got to keep on keeping on? Lol you should have seen me walking with a shopping cart in a torential down pour moving stuff from my moms old house into her new one. It had started snowing so we had to take the uhaul back and there was still a bunch of stuff to move. I was soaked all the way to my armpits and all I wanted was for mom to unpak one box a day to help me but nada on that but we got through it. I also got stuck cleaning my moms house with my daughter and that incuded 3,000 pounds of trash out of the car port which my brother left there and moved to Kansas. You the picture of how worthless my lil brother is yet?
My mom told that I was her hero and that was it, I wanted to hug her for that. And sometimes I do get madd at her lol like today trying to get her showered and dressed for the medical transport to pick us up. I kept telling her to hurry up and she said dont worry they will wait for me,so there I stood in her doorway telling the lady I was sorry but what are you going to do when someone makes it to 78 years old and had a hard life. So when my mom called tonight needing help I cant tell her no. But beleive me my brothers going to hear from me!!!
And dont tell me about
how you read about
me and feel bad about
your troubles. I read about
you all the time,some of you raising little kids and some with surgery after surgery. We all have problems in our lives and you are just as important as the next person. I felt for Mikel recouping from surgery and God knows Papa Petes had his knocks along the way(ouch on his eye!!)and Char and PaLady and oh so many that are hurting but still take the time to make others feel better(Im not going to cry Im not going to cry too late!!) I just want you all to know that I love you and Im here wishing you a better day.
Love and Hugs,
Mom of one gramma to 4 lover to One
