Well as you can see, I'm not as hard on myself as I was the other day. I don't think it will last, but well you know...Today's dr's appt wasn't for me though it was for gma. Her feet and legs are swelling again. Not as bad as they did last time but I'm not willing to play with her health like that. If it was me, that's another story, but it wasn't so I called when I got home from class today. Ms.Barbara was so nice when I called the office, she was like "Ms.Venable is such a sweet lady." When I told her what was going on with gma she was like can you bring her in at 2:30 this afternoon. Wow I was shocked I figured we would have to wait for a day or so, that was so cool. So after I got off the phone with the office I decided we were going to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and get her PT checked too. She has been fighting with me about getting that done for the last 2weeks. I know not good, but I haven't been in the mood to fight with her about it either. So we went to the dr appt. She wasn't happy about it to say the least and if looks could kill I would not be here typing this entry right now. I don't think she said 2 words to me on the ride to the office.
We waited our turns and I had her sign the medical release form so I can handle her meds and stuff. She was just as confused as I was on that, but she signed it anyway. We got back to the room. She didn't feel up to getting on the scales for the nurse, so the nurse said not to worry about it. We got into the exam room and she took gma's temp and pressure....the temp seemed a lil high to me, 99.4 but she nor Dr. Selander seemed worried about it. When he came in he said that she looked in better spirits...I was thinking...oh yah she's putting up a good front, but I bit my tongue. He looked at her feet and said that it was just fluid retention. Decided to up her Lasix dose and if it kept getting worse to bring her back in.
What really made me feel good was that I was asking a few questions that I had. I made the comment that I'm doing the best that I can and he looked at me, smiled, and said "it looks to me like you're doing a pretty good job taking care of her considering it's your first time dealing with this type of situation." OMG, you don't know how much that really meant to me. I mean, I feel like I'm just winging it, I told him he needed to tell me if I was doing something that I shouldn't or if there is something I need to do that I wasn't cause I'm new at this. Dr. Selander is the best ya'll. I've been going to see him since I was 5. Gma has been going to see him forever too. So it really made me feel good when he said that. It really made my day :D.
I know I know....go ahead say it, you know you want to....Yes it's the lil things that amuse me or make my day as of late, but that just makes me me :D. Bobby is doing much better now. He was being a pain in the rear when he came home from camp, but he has calmed down a lot. Today I got to spend some time with him while my sis was in school, but then he had to go to the clinic for blood and platelets, :( his counts were low. I can't wait to see him back to full health again. We're still not sure if he is going to be able to go to school in the fall, but he has been allowed to take his mask off now. Unless there is an major no no...like dirt, being in the woods, or when a car smells to bad, but at least he is getting some privilages that make us think he is well on his way. Thank you all for the prayers and concern that you've given. Plz keep the prayers going he's on the road to recovery but not out of the woods yet. Thanks again.
Well everyone knows that Jay was going to come in May, but couldn't, and I said that we were in the talking stages of getting him down here soon. I was hoping July for the 4th, but that was a no go :(, I'm ok really :((.... no really I'm ok. We set the date for the 15th of August. Keep your fingers crossed, I'll just fade away to nothing if we have to cancel or postpone it again. So so far so good :D, 62 days...they will fly right? Okies on that note I'm gonna end this one. Love you guys, take care, (((huggs))) everyone.
