The Good Things

My last post was a bit depressing, as I wanted to paint a good picture of just how sick I am and how dire things are. There are some good things that I failed to mention which are deserving.

Since the move, we have been getting food delivered 3 days a week through my mother’s church. The food and the people have been amazing! They’ve gotten us quiche (three different types, all delicious!) a lot of casseroles, which are easy for me to eat, and a lot of fruit and good desserts too.

One of the best things is, living down the street from my mother has been priceless. It’s taken some of the load off of my husband. She lives about an hour away from the hospital but she’s always willing to drive us there. Thankfully she’s able to take off work, usually with little notice even, to do just that. Yesterday she and my husband had to drive all the way back home to get some of my medication that the hospital didn’t have.

I was also happy to receive the warm and fuzzy welcome that my cats gave me when I came home last week. One cat missed me so much that he hogged my lap for a long time and none of the other cats could come close! The kitties have adjusted very well to the new place. They seem to like it a lot more and they’re getting along better with each other. We’ve also had fewer accidents outside the litterbox.

I’m also thankful for my online friends. I managed to play some video games online with them last week.

My friend Dee has been such a blessing. Last week she was able to come over and spend some time with me, even spending the night a few times. I’ve also had some family visit me as well: my Uncle Jim, my Aunt Donna, and my Aunt Ellie. Aunt Donna brought me some apple cake she baked, and it was incredible, one of the best things I’ve ever had!

Rummaging around in my closet, I found some giraffe socks my mom gave me last Christmas that were very fuzzy and warm and they even go over my knees. I was wearing them when I went to the hospital recently and everyone agreed they were awesome.

Speaking of, I was back in the hospital Thursday night. I started having a headache, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting last Sunday, and it continued to get worse throughout the week. My doctor ordered a CT scan on Thursday. They over sedated me in the ER before the CT scan, and when I woke up I could barely breathe. There is no reason for the shortness of breath, everything checks out just fine, so we think I just need to get the medications out of my system. I was just under observation, but I start to feeling right until yesterday. Thankfully it is a beautiful day of light rain and smells of grass and flowers.

As always, thank you so much for your love and support, it means a lot and gets me through this!
