Sorry everyone I haven't checked in before now. As far as my heart goes, I feel fine. It's this darn fatigue that I'm not used to. The last few days, it's got the best of me especially today. I'm a night owl and someone called this morning at 9am and woke me up. It was the lady at the drs office with the approval numbers for the MRIs of the thoracic and lumber spine, and the ct scan of the thorax that I have to get done. On the last MRI that found a cyst or something. It sounds really small. I needed to make the calls today, but I just couldn't. I had to go back to bed, as I could barely keep my eyes
open. ( I think I went to bed about
2 or 3 am if I'm not mistakened). After I hung up, I went back to bed. I started the irritating thing of waking up, going to sleep, waking up going to sleep for about
2 or 3 hours and then I finally went to sleep and slept until 4pm. I got up and was still really tired. I stayed up until 6pm. I was able to get most of the local news in and then went back to bed at 6pm. I slept until Jerome woke me up at 8:30pm. I went back to sleep until 9pm, and then got up. It's now 3:36 am and I've been exhausted since I got back up. I don't know what's going on, but I'm sick of it. I feel so sorry for those of you that have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. What a pain in the butt.
Dani, The only way I know of that you could do anything around the house is to really, really push yourself. I can't do hardly anything. Poor Jerome has had to do all the cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. ever since my condition became chronic. Bless his heart. He's a tru gift from God. He takes care of me and the house, oh did I forget to tell you that he takes care of the birds too? I'm able to give them food and water a lot of the time and put them to bed, but there are times when I'm hurting so much that he has to do it. I makes myself do it if he goes to bed and forgets to do it.
I sure we we had at least one bumblebee to bring me flowers and to watch them play outside. I know it's got to be extremely hard on you, but you are truely blessed.
Well, that's what's going on in our neck of the cold world. When is mother nature going to learn that it's spring around here? I'm so ready to be able to go outside without having to bundle up like it's mid-winter. Those that have warm weather, could you please send some our way?
Well, i'll go now. everyone take care and i hope you're having a low pain night and some good rest. I'm in a lot of pain and it's not snowing this time. Enough complaining.
love and hugs
