Hi everyone:

First off Merry Christmas to you all. Wow, it's hard to believe that 2014 is almost over. Last year at this time I was laying in a hospital bed with a very bad case of pneumonia. Well, I'm home this year and I'm thankful for that, however, I'm STILL FIGHTING C-diff.

I've had this stupid bug since the 6th of November. I saw the ID Doctor and they instructed me to start to taper my antibiotics, which I did. Wouldn't you know that after 5 days my symptoms got worse and I'm now back on the full dose of antibiotics again. I was told that there is one other medication I can try before I may need a stool transplant. Yep, you read that right, a stool transplant.

Apparently, patients who are immuno suppressed like I am and can not get rid of their C-diff, they do a stool transplant on the patient. It sounds terrible, gross, disgusting all those things, but I've been assured it will work. I'm not going to give TMI, you can look it up or use your imagination on this one.

My daughter has been sick 7 days now, and she's been really sick. Finally, she asked to be seen on Christmas Eve. Off to urgent care we go, her temp was really high, they did an x-ray and said she had bronchitis. Gave her some antibiotics and sent her on her way. Well this evening the urgent care called and said that they reviewed her x-rays and she has pneumonia and not bronchitis. Needless, to say I'm freaking out about her.

She's never had this before and she's been so sick. Of course, we're worried will I get it from her, or maybe her Dad. My biggest worry though, is that she's going to Hawaii for winter semester to take her biology classes. She leaves on the 4th of January. I sure hope she's well enough to travel there and be there for a full 30 days. I wish I could go with her just to watch over her now. I mean I would LOVE to see Hawaii, but I'm NOW more worried about her health and the MOM in me wants to not leave her side at all.

She was up at 3:00 this morning having trouble breathing. I was up with her and watching like the Mother Hen I am. She slept a lot today, we did manage to open presents, which she hadn't gotten any for us. She's been in bed totally laid up for the past 7 days. We told her not worry at all about it. So, could you all please say prayers or send healing thoughts her way. She needs to be at 100% by the 4th of January for her trip.

As for me, I don't think I'm EVER going to be well again. My lupus profundus is breaking out everywhere and my Doctors are fighting over which medication to give me. I'm totally confused on what to do about which Doctor to listen to. The C-diff is a real BIG PROBLEM and I really don't want to go through a stool transplant.

I'm looking at having to have my foot operated on AGAIN in January. The Orthopedic Doctor thinks I'm having an allergic reaction to the material that he anchored my tendon to my heel to when he put the new tendon into where my Achilles tendon was. So, he's going to have to open up the whole bottom of my heel, remove the item and will also shave any bone that seems to be in the way.

As for my leukemia, my anemia is getting much, much worse and I'm so fatigued. I just feel like death warmed over 95% of the time. I'm having to do more and more things around the house. I have NO ONE to help me with it and hubby will not allow me to hire anyone to come in and clean for me. I wouldn't mind so much, IF, he'd carry the slack. He doesn't do that though and I'm so much of a cleaning freak, I can't stand any messes in the house. nono nono nono he fusses at me for working around the house, and yet he doesn't seem to get, that if our house isn't kept as close to spotless it could cause me to get sick and die.

Like I was told my type of leukemia, there's NO CURE for it. That MOST patients like 5-8 years (some 10). That's IF AN INFECTION doesn't KILL US FIRST. A lot of us die from infections, that's why I have to be so careful with everything.

Well, that's my update, sorry it took so long to give one. I hope you all had a great Christmas and have a healthy 2015. We ALL DESERVE to have a healthy and happy 2015. Take care and you're all in my prayers.

Hugs,
Barbara

Sorry to hear you're still having issues with your foot and c-diff. Stool transplant?! Ew! :-p
I hope your daughter gets better in time for her trip. The warm weather will do her good. Try not to catch her bug, ok?

Hang in there. There's got to be a light at the end of the tunnel.

I know all of my kids had the parainfluenza and were really really sick. They got croupe with it and had trouble breathing. I thought that was just for little kids! They were very sick for about 7-10 days. And then another week with a really bad cough. I have heard that this illness is going around like crazy. Lots of people we know with this, and other states closing schools because of it. I hope your daughter feels better soon. I'll bet she started with that one. I was so happy, I did not get it! So maybe you will pass it by too. I gave my kids mucinex with a cough suppressent in it and it really helped.

Hi Barbara,

I've been wondering about you... Sorry to hear about all that's been going on. I'm glad you're home this year for Christmas. I hope the antibiotics will start working.

Sorry about your daughter. I hope she'll get over this soon, an she'll be able to travel.

Do you have any close relative or friends who can help you clean?

I hope 2015 will be a better year for you. Prayers and thoughts your way...

Barb,

First off, Merry Christmas to my good friend, and to your family.

Never heard of a "stool transplant", will have to look that up.

Don't get one part. Understand the clean house part. If you can't do it all, and if you husband won't pick up the slack, then why would he be against you getting some help? Doesn't sound fair to me.

My wife is lucky, she has the perfect house slave in place. I honestly do 90% or more of all the house work, cleaning, laundry, shopping, cooking, etc. I shouldn't do half of what I do in my condition, but I feel for her struggling working still 40-55 hours a week as a nurse. Plus, with me, a busy mind keeps me from drowning in my own problems, so it actually helps both of us.

I sincerely hope you have a better 2015 ahead. You need and deserve that, at the least.

Will check in with you soon,

gentle hugs,

Hi Joy, Ashaline, UA, Lynnwood, David, Chart, and Diane:

Thanks everyone for your support and stopping in to send me well wishes. Happy New Year to you all, I hope you all had a good New Years Eve and had a good New Years Day.

Lynnwood, I see that your feet are flaring up again (((hugs))) I certainly can feel for you. I think you might need to ee a Dr too, even though, I know you don't want to. Chart I hope Jasmine is better with her Strep Throat. How are things going with the wedding plans for her. I know you mentioned that the grooms Father was being difficult, are you still having issues with the guy?

David, I know I haven't posted on your threads lately but you know how things go, when you feel like poo all the time. I'm sorry to hear that you have a sore area in the gums. I sure hope the dentist specialist at the VA can get it all fixed up so you do not have that much extra pain. I'm very worried still about your declining weight, I sure wish they'd figure this out and ASAP!!!!!!!!!

Joy, how are your fur babies doing? My fur baby is alright I guess I've managed to get her on a diet and she looks a bit thinner. I have to say tonight I'm irritated and just plain old mad. My daughter has been sick with pneumonia I know this, however, the past 3 days she has seemed much improved. I have to take her to Philly tomorrow so that she can catch her flight to Hawaii at like 6am Sunday morning.

She has WAITED UNTIL TODAY, to do her laundry, she has a list of stuff we need to pick up yet and she's not packed. Now, I know THIS ISN'T MY PROBLEM, but I get stressed out anyway. She knows this and yet she does this to me EVERY TIME. I mentioned that she'll be graduating from college in May and will need to hold down a job. Said what are you planning on doing with a job, you'll be expected to work and be on time and such. The response I got was, "Oh well, I guess I'll be homeless" Talk about driving your parent INSANE.

I know she learned this terrible habit from her Father, the waiting till the last minute thing. Even though I could barely stand up yesterday, I removed all the decorations off of 2 Christmas trees and packed everything up. All hubby was to do was carry the 4 storage bins and an ornament container down to the basement. Plus, take down the 2 artificial trees. Well, EVERYTHING IS STILL IN THE ROOMS, INCLUDING THE TREES.

I swear I feel like slapping the living you know what out of the folks who live with me right now. I'm not allowed to hire anyone to help with housework, as hubby is the ultra paranoid retired solider. He doesn't TRUST anyone in our home that we DO NOT KNOW, PERSONALLY. I've got the kid who lets everything slide sleeping on the couch at the moment. I feel terrible and I'll have to get up in the morning and help pack the car to drive daughter to Philly.

We'll spend the night there and then I'll take her to the airport Sunday AM, I'm going back to the hotel and will sleep some more I swear I will. I'm paying way to much for the room not to. Then I'll drive back home and I bet I'll come home to my fur baby not being fed or watered, cause she won't approach anyone but me. I'll bet too that NOTHING that I want taken to the basement will be down there either.

THEY KNOW STRESS makes me sick, man why do they have to test my nerves. I've always wanted to go to Hawaii and I know that I'll never get to go. I'm just to sick to travel that far, so far my New Year isn't turning out every happy. Sure hoping this isn't a preview of whats to come.

Well, I'd better get to bed, as I'll have to go to the sporting goods store in the early AM to find water shoes, and a collapsible cooler for daughter to pack away in her luggage. She'll be doing laundry and packing I hope, plus needs to take care of some last minute financial aid stuff for spring semester. When she comes home, she will have 1 day at home with us. Then she must return to college as she's an RA and has to be in place before her residents are.

I pray that you all have a Happy and Healthy 2015, some of us have got to have something good happen to them. Knowing my luck, watch I'll be killed in a car accident on the way home Sunday. skull skull skull Feeling VERY UPSET tonight, sorry. I'm just venting this to shall pass I hope. Have a good weekend everyone and I'll post when I return home from Philly.

Hugs,
Barbara

Hi Barbara, don't be sorry. I get frustrated like this too with my family. They just don't see what needs to be done like we do. They are blind to messes I swear!! I'm jealous that they don't have a running list of things to do in their brains like I constantly do.

I got quite upset with the lot of them Christmas Eve. I had done all the shopping, wrapping, planning, groceries etc all while working full time and then I had to come home and clean the house as we were having guests. Aaaaargh!!! They heard about my discontent, let me tell you!! Good God I was exhausted!! Then I paid for all the extra work, stress and running with a lovely flare up that still hasn't calmed down completely.

They just don't get it, sadly.

Barbara, I feel so bad for you! It is crazy your husband and daughter aren't taking responsibility for things like taking down the tree, running to buy collapsible coolers, taking your daughter to the airport, etc. You have got to protect your health!

Your husband and daughter must not understand the seriousness of your condition. Would they read information about lupus and the need to rest and have no stress if you printed it out for them?

Hugs and love being sent your way. Good luck!!!

Christmas tip if you have enough storage space.

I have a table top Christmas tree. I wired on the ornaments and decorations so they won't fall off. I had a friend who is really good at decorating trees help me. Now after Christmas I simply take an old sheet and wrap the decorated tree. My husband takes it to the basement. Next year he will carry it up and place it on the coffee table in front of the window. I'll take off the sheet, fluff it a little and plug it in. Wa-La! ALL DONE!

I know most people want their home decorated more than this for Christmas, but this is what I call my "lupus Christmas decorating".

It works for me.

Barbara,

Leave the shopping for the trip alone. They have stores in Hawaii and the lazy one can take care of herself for a change.

Nuff said.

Hope hubby gets rid of those trees for you, DON'T you DARE do it yourself!

My niece is the same way with dragging her feet until the last minute. She drives me nuts half the time with this.
Can you leave a bowl of dry food and water out in a quiet place for your fur baby? One of mine is like that and I worry when we have guests he stays hidden all of the time.
Try to relax and not fret too much. If the trees are still there when you get back start decoration them with his socks and undies. ;-D. Naw, don't touch them and let them sit. Evenually he will see that you're not going to touch them and he will take care of them.

I agree with Lynwood... there are stores in HI - she can do her own shopping.

Also check with hotel- they may have shuttles going to airport - then you could sleep in hon !

Tuck a couple of extra bowls of water & bit of food - in case cat turns one of it's bowls over.

Enjoy yourself. If there is a place, easily accessiblle, that you want to visit on way home, indulge. .. maybe a restaurant for homecooking. You'll need a break anyway

Despite how crazy our kids make us we will always love them...somethings you must just let go. Jasmine is driving me nutty with the wedding plans, still no date, I told her at Christmas that the must make some plans and we are still waiting, its worse than pulling teeth....So, I do understand your frustrations and Nikita will get it one day....
Prayers that this will not make you sicker... many prayers....

Hey Acquiesce, Kim, Lynnwood, Joy, Diane, and Chart:

Hey all thanks for responding to my post. I know I should accommodate my family like I do but well.......you know how it goes. Kim my family is VERY AWARE of how ill I am. My daughter 3 years ago found me unresponsive and I nearly died. Ended up on life support and missed her high school graduation because of it. She is VERY, VERY, VERY AWARE of whats happening to me.

I swear that she wants to push my buttons 24/7. I think she's angry with me for being sick, she has no real memories of me being well. She was very young when I could do all the things that Mom do. I was the school volunteer coordinator when she was in 1st grade, the cookie Mom for her brownie troop. Did all the trips with the school field trips you name it. Even when we moved to Germany in 2001 I was still pretty good and traveled extensively with her. I started sliding down hill in 2004 and have done nothing but just fall down that hill now.

I did get her to the airport, we spent the night in Philly on Saturday night. I swear not only was I stressed over the fact she wasn't packed n ready to go, but I managed to get rattled and lost my 1 carat diamond wedding anniversary band in the car last Saturday night. I'd stopped by her university and while I was sitting in the car, I took off my ring to put on lotion. I know I shouldn't taken it off (didn't want lotion all over the diamonds) anyway, I laid it on the dash and I put my lotion on. My daughter came down to the car and I got distracted and forgot I had put the ring up there.

I drove off with it sitting on the dash, we stopped at two stores and then headed on to Philly. It didn't hit me that I'd lost my ring until I was checking in at the hotel and looked down at my hands and noticed my ring was missing. Talk about stress, I'm sure my BP shot up into the 200's. Anyway, I went down to the car and started searching for the ring. I couldn't find it and then I really got upset. Once I got back to the room, I called hubby to let him know what I'd done. Now, I give him TONS of credit cause he didn't lose his temper with me at least. He was seething I'm certain, (I lost a 24 carat gold necklace that he bought me in Saudi back in 1991) so I have a history with this issue. I kept thinking "Oh man, I'm not going to get that eternity ring for my 30th anniversary this summer, if I don't find this ring."

Well, I couldn't sleep at all and I didn't lay down until 2 am, had to be up at 4am to get daughter up for her to catch her flight. She asked me to help pack the suitcase, that she wouldn't let me do earlier, and we rushed out the door at 5:15 am. Lucky for me, she did manage to lift the special floor mats in my car and found my ring for me. I'm still upset with her though, she knows how much I hate it when she waits till the very last second to do something. When I got home Sunday after noon, only the boxed trees and 1 storage bin had made it to the basement.

Well, it's now Friday morning very early and I still have 3 storage bins sitting in the various rooms and I'm so frustrated with hubby I could spit. I know that this stuff doesn't mean much to him, but it does to me and I can't stand looking at it. It's like the cleaning in the house, I can't stand a messy house and I have to keep it clean. Most days I think I'm going to go crazy because I can't hire anyone to come in and do the stuff I can't. Asking him doesn't do a darn bit of good, as he doesn't do it until I pitch a royal fit. To answer anyone's question as to, "why I don't hire someone", he won't allow it. He doesn't trust ANYONE WE DO NOT KNOW, in our home period. I can't even be at home with a repair person w/o him or our landlord being present.

So, as to how am I, I'm flaring big time. My lupus profundus is really bad and growing all over my skin now. I did manage to get my Rheumy to speak with my Dermatologist. Due to the fact that my Rheumy, Cardiologist, and Oncologist are against my taking the drug my Dermatologist wants me to take. They agreed that I'll try something different for 3 to 4 weeks and if it makes no difference then I'll take the medication the Dermatologist wants me to take.

I'm a bit worried as this medication can cause nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, dizziness, severe anemia, turn your lips blue, mood swings, suicidal thoughts etc. Just what I need right now, I feel like I'm having a nervous break down already. My foot is killing me and STILL HAS AN open WOUND ON IT. It's hurting me so badly I can't even rest it on the floor. My back is also hurting a ton, when I had a massage today, Pam said that my back was so tight and in such bad shape she's never seen me like this before. She worked on my back for 1 hour and 45 minutes. She openly admitted her arms were aching when she was done with me. I'll see her again on Tuesday and next Friday the 16th I'll get an injection in both sides of my back then.

I'll let you know when I get my surgery date, the plan is for the surgeon to open up the heel of my foot and remove the stuff he used to anchor my tendon to my heel. He will also shave some of the heel bone off too, yep I know this is gonna hurt. I'm dreading the surgery, but looking forward to it. Just pray that I get relief from the procedure. I'll also see the cardiologist and dermatologist next week too.

I hope our weather warms up as this really cold stuff is making me ache badly. It's currently only 6 degrees outside. Anyway, that's all that's new here with me, my fur baby is doing well, but she's not a loving as I had hoped she'd be. Maybe it's still to soon for her, she's following me all around the house and stuff, but she doesn't sit on my lap. I miss that so much, Grady always was on my lap and loving on me. Well, it's 2 am and I'd better try to sleep, have to be up at 5:45 to rub hubby's back.

I hope you're all doing well and that you all have a healthy 2015. That's what I'm praying for, that each and every one of us improve 100%. Take care and I hope you all have a pain free days over the weekend. I'll check in again soon.

Hugs,
Barbara

Jazzi and I also had a fallout after Christmas and I'm still mad at her. One reason is we took her ring shopping for the grooms ring and the lady in the store isexplaining to me why not to get tungston bands as the can shatter and Jasmine yells at me while this nice person is explaining this, so I turned to Jazzi and said "I'm your mother, don't yo ever yell at me as we are getting this for you ad your future hubby". She did apologize and we did have to go to another store...
Kids don't you love them... I would agree with you in that Nikita's angry at your illness and not you, just be patient, hopefully she is enjoying Hawaii...She will come around...
Many prayers and put a call throught to a cleaning service and tell your husband and that might get his duff in gear...just say you have someonecoming to clean...stop the begging ...
Again continued prayers and well wishes...

Hi Kim and Chart

Kim my fur baby is a Blue Point Siamese cat that I just got from the Siamese shelter in November. We've had her almost 2 months now. She's going to be 5 at the end of January. I keep telling myself that she's going to get more loving and such stuff. Our fur baby Grady passed away from cancer in June 2015 and he was a BIG LAP KITTY. I miss him so much and Gerogina isn't that way at all, heck she won't even allow me to pick her up yet.

Chart I'm sorry that your an Jazzi had a fallout after Christmas. Our girls just don't get it sometimes, that we work every hard to help them with things. I'm just worried that my girl isn't going to figure things out before I die, and that's so upsetting to me. I know that she'll have regrets and will be unable to reconcile them with me in person. I know I had things I had wanted to discuss with my Mom and she wouldn't talk with me about anything when she found out she had cancer and was dying. Oh well, I guess things will work out one way or the other.

I hope that you and Jazzi have worked out things and her wedding goes off without one problem at all. I'm sure she didn't mean to yell at you. I'm sure she's starting to get the wedding jitters and stuff. I know you mentioned that her future father in law can be a real pain in the butt too. I hope that you both can work things out and enjoy this special time with her. Please keep me posted on how things are going. Well I'd better get to bed I'm starting to fall asleep sitting up.

Hugs,
Barbara

Try not to stress over the crates. I know that is hard to do, but think of the "Serenity Prayer". You're daughter will come around, just give her time.

I hope you foot gets better after the surgery. My mother is having surgery on her knee next month. She tore her meniscus(?) in two places and has to have it sew up.

Thank you, Barbara... Try some kitty nip on your bed as that may bring your furbaby closer to you or try some kitty treats..I have one kitty that likes to lick coconut oil off my face, so he gets a small amount at bedtime and they sleep around me at night...cat nip will make kitty active for 20 to 30 minutes and then it makes them sleepy...so a small blanket with a little nip on it 1/2 hour before bed time should work...make your bed a fun spot for kitty and then they go there for fun and sleep...

Chart:

Thanks for the advice, I wish it would work with Georgina, but it's a TOTAL WASH OUT WITH HER.!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I picked her up from the foster home, the Foster Mom informed me that the Cat was strange. I asked strange how, well let me tell you she's strange.

Georgina doesn't eat treats of ANY KIND. She isn't drawn to catnip, nor does she want people food. She will only eat Friskie's Country Style Dinner Wet and Beyond the Label Chicken flavor dry food. I even tried to give her some tuna out of the can and on a glass plate. She walked away from it, with her nose up in the air.

I can tell she wants to sit on my lap, but I think she was just so abused in her other home that she's afraid of most things. I mean when she eats her dry food out of her bowl. I have to be standing right there with her petting her back. Even then she's looking all around like someone is going to come a get her food.

If you have any other suggestions, Id be so happy to hear them. I hope your RA isn't causing you to much pain tonight and that you're feeling a bit better now. I'm going to head to bed, it's getting quite cold in my house. Time to cuddle down under my blankets in my bed since hubby turns the heat down to 62 or 63 degrees at night. Hope you're sleeping well tonight and I hope you have a low pain day tomorrow.

Hugs,
Barbara
