Well, Mom went to the new doctor this morning.  I shouldn't keep saying new doctor, he is the one who did the surgery to remove the feeding tube that was infected, and nearly killled her, leaving this wound that is now causing us so much issues.  Anyway, he put something on it, and he said it will actually cause her wound to scab up and within like 3 weeks it should be "normal".  He also said there should be NO MORE bleeding in the night.  I hope he is right.  I am feeling pretty confident in his word, because he saved Mom's life in the middle of the night when her feeding tube first got infected.
Today, I feel pretty good.  I had some issues at my apartment here that were making me angry, and caused me to need a Xanax.  I got really shaky, so I took a Xanax, and knock on wood, I have been fine since then.
We have been having a lot of rain lately, and the result of it is my sons bedroom being flooded.  I called the landlord who didn't seem too concerned.  Maintenance came, and he didn't do anything.  My whole house smells like mold, and my son can't use his bedroom.  I am frustrated with that.  We asked them if we can move into this other unit, since it's more updated than the one we are in now.  They were suppose to let us know Monday if we could do it or not, and we haven't heard from them.  That was frustrating enough, but now that we are flooded, and they aren't doing anything to help us, I am simply angry.  We have been keeping candles and insense lit, but the smell of the wet is stronger than any of that.  YUCK.  So, first thing tomorrow, I plan to get back on the phone and DEMAND they let us move into that other unit, RIGHT NOW.  I have lived here 5 years, and my rent is ALWAYS on time.  I deserve an updated unit. there was me just venting.  Overall though, today was a good day.  Other than my apartment issues..GRRR.
And shhh, don' t tell anyone, but my tooth felt great ALL DAY TODAY!  I am going MONDAY , FOR SURE....maybe God will keep the pain gone til then so I can at least be comfortable!!!
Thanks all for listening to me ramble!
Lots of Love!!!

Hey Tammy

Good news for your Mom, so happy for you.  As far as your apartment, call the Board of Health as mold is dangerous.

I know the weather is not your landlords fault but he should be letting you move into the other unit.  He wants his cake and eat it too.

Shhhhhhhhhhhh, I won't say a word of wisdom

Hugs to you.

Glad to hear that your mom may have a solution to her problem.  I sure hope the doctor is right, for both of your sakes!  Sorry to hear about the apartment...I know that smell, and it's awful.   I agree with you that you should call and demand a new place, you shouldn't have to suffer like that!  I hope both situations work out well for you.  Don't want to jinx anything, so no comment other than good luck Monday!  :-)
