Afternoon Lynnwood, David, Joy, Laura, and Loretta:
Thanks Lynnwood for starting the post and letting everyone know I made it thru and was able to go home. I know I was pretty out of it when we spoke. Surprised you could understand me at all LOL. Heck spoke to Julia today and she said I was really groggy still. I'm just really tired I guess.
David, Joy, Laura, and Loretta thanks for your prayers and well wishes. I really appreciate them and I'm positive that they helped me a lot. I hope each of you are having a good weekend, w/o a bunch a pain. I know that David you're having a very difficult time and I worry greatly about
Joy I read your post and will respond there, but I want you to know that I'm sending loads prayers and positive healing your way.
Laura, I'm sure the school year takes a HUGE toll on your body. I don't know how you do it. I'm sorry that your symptoms have returned and the fatigue is so bad.
Loretta, I know you're suffering with a lot of pain and I wish more could be done for you. You are also in my prayers and positive healing powers are being sent to you.
As for me, I believe my lupus is flaring and I really feel unwell. I awoke this morning with a terrible earache on my right side. I've have had PE tubes in my ears for several years now, and I noticed that I've got fluid draining from that right ear. I'm tender to the touch along the skin where the ear attaches to my face/head.
Been running a low grade temp, sweats, chills, and just blah. Guessing if I'm still like this tomorrow will have to go to the ER to be checked out. The Military hospital doesn't have an urgent care clinic on weekends. If you feel you're ill enough to visit the ER then that's where you go. No doctors are on call over the weekends either. It's plain and simple you visit the ER on holidays, weekends, and after 4pm M-F.
Of course, I hate going to the ER, talk about
germs infestations, but I also don't want to let any infection get out of hand. As for the GYN surgery, having some issues, but will either address them tomorrow too, or I'll speak with my Doctor on Monday. I'm not due to follow up until the 7th of October with him.
Pretty much laying doing nothing, I'm still only allowed to put slight weight on my left foot. As of this coming Wednesday, I may begin to walk on the foot w/o crutches. I'll also be able to put my full weight on it. Hubby would prefer I use my walker for the first several days before attempting to walk w/o any assistance. Will see my Orthopedic Doctor on the 17th of October.
Other than that I'm hanging in there. Pain levels are pretty high, especially in my back and hip area. My surgery site is also VERY sore. Guess that's all I have for an update. Will rest in bed all weekend and allow my hubby to wait on me
I finally have him trained well LOL.
