Hi All, just a quick note to let everyone know I have not dropped off the earth. My mom is still here and will be until June 11th. I'm not sure if I ever told you about her situation... in a nutshell... she lives in Durango and has exhausted all her resources there in trying to figure out where her extreme pain is coming from.
Being that I don't have a $65,000.00 degree, I used Google to research her symptoms and told her she most likely has Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. No one there knew what that was down there nor what Prolotherapy was which is commonly used to treat it (among other avenues), but this therapy get the source of the problem and not the symptoms! So she is here now and has been seen by a pelvic specialists who diagnosed her with guess what.... Pelvic Floor Dysfunction!!! Geesh do I feel SMART, AND... I didn't even have to pay one penny for my degree! Now I am living "Driving Miss Daisy" as I am shuttling her here and there for all these appointment we have scheduled. On top of Abbs appointment and mine, I am getting my fill of driving time in for sure!
Abbs is fine, this last two days she has giggled more than I have ever seen her, its wonderful!!! Her seizures are still not under control even with this higher dose of meds. I have not had time to "research" a neurologists here in Denver, but plan on it. She is over the diaper rash and everything else, thus the giggles I think... she is feeling much better, thanks for the prayers!!!!
Me, I am hanging in there, staying a float by chugging a way on TEA and not coffee, because I can't drink it anymore, some lumps were found at a doctors appointment and she figured caffeine was the culprit, so if I don't wanna have a "painful" mammogram I should not drink it! I quickly retorted, "Do you have a shot you can give me to calm the irritated person I will become without it?"
Painless mammogram.... who does she think she is? I am not dumb, I've seen all the cartoon cards, and whatnot that share just how PAINFUL it really is! It took me 5 years to get the courage for my last appointment so this appointment, I am not going to skip happily there, but will drag my feet with much hesitation, reservation and fear, not to mention I might snip at a nurse or two!
SEE DO YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN????
O.k. enough. I'm off to have some quiet time before the kids get up, have a wonderful day all...
