Jim in hosp. Don't even get me started right now. They don't know what the hell is going on. He's in pain. We had to call the ambulance for him this morning (thurs morn). He did mention something about a rope and a window. He's getting really tired of all this sh!t. His bed is alarmed. He can't even stand on the left leg.
just show me the closest bridge.
His white cell count is flying higher every day. It could possibly be the MRSA back again. We won't know that for another few days. BUT, if it is the MRSA and the pain is worse in his groin, are they automactially going to take off up to the hip?
I HATE whatever the hell this is.
No progress. We still don't know what this is. Hopefully we'll know more tonight or tomorrow based on the l o n g test they did today.
Long test yesterday. 11am-5:30pm. They didn't even feed him lunch. I got my hair cut and colored and was still back in the room wayyy before him.
So anyways, the results? Inconclusive. Two spots: Left chest area. Left groin area. What the hell are those spots? Damn good question.
The pain in his groin? Inflamation of muscles. Fluid around hip joint.
Pain in back? He has back problems again. He's already had back surgery (before i knew him). No surgeon is going to touch him until they get whatever infection this under control.
His kidney #'s are SUPER high. Not doing good again.
Dr's are a$$holes. Wait...not all are. One is. He went into Jim's room late lastnight (after 10pm) and told him he was probably gonna need another surgery to heal the hip. BUT, even if they did the surgery he might not make it through. Thanks a bunch there dude!
ankle. mine. Hopefully not broken. First day back to work after 3 wks. lovely. At least Jim still has decent pain med's.
I'm offically signed up for the CNA/HHA class starting in June.
Things are going better wuth Jim. His potassium #'s are high now.
level 1 sprain. 1 wk light duty. with 10 days of staying off it as much as possible and avoiding stairs.
“Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.”
Easter was rough.
I'm still on light duty for the ankle and probably will be for another 4 wks. I really f'ed up my ankle.
Not doing good.
Not doing good. That's all we get?!?! Prayin' for you!
I just need to get through this wkend with my sanity intact. I just feel like i'm on that grief roller coster again. My acceptance of Zachary (and the other 3 angel annvi this wkend) being gone has gone out the door. Why the he!! should i accept him being gone 15 yrs? I don't understand why god (if there is one at this point) would have anyone go through something so gut wrenching and tragic as child loss no matter the age or gestation. It f'in hurts.
the 16th was annvi of death
today is the annvi of finding out.
tomorrow is annvi of delivery.
today is also annvi of my mom's friend son passing at the EXACT moment i found out Zach was gone.
yesterday was the 5 yr annvi of my Grandmother passing.
tuesday is 14 yr annvi of my Godfather passing.
Happy 15th Angel Birthday. Miss you.
Jim's picc line is out. They pulled it today @ appoint.
memo to self : hosp's and me don't mix. Not such a good idea to have scheduled the appointment today.
I have something i think needs to be said.
I'm nervous about putting it in here. Judgement and the potential for future employers finding it has me nervous ....but it's something i need to deal with.
Jim's foot is swollen to the size of a football.
Good news on PT front. My range of motion is awesome! The swelling is gone. Still little bit of tightness in calf. I need to start walking "normally" again. I need to wear my shoes constantly. I HATE shoes. I'm a barefoot person.
Jim's foot is better. We really need to watch his salt intake better.
Kids are good.
I'm getting super excited about the CNA class!
Another month of light duty. Work is so thrilled.
AF is here. *joy*
Started my "work sim" this wk. God, i am so out of shape.
I go to the dr's for my ankle on Tues afternoon. I'm nervous.
I have a little over a wk till my class starts. o.m.g!
My parents are planning a HUGE family trip for this summer. They are taking ALL of us (my family, my brother's family, and sister's family) to Disney in August. We are getting super excited!
My stomache issues? f'in acid reflux.
3 more weeks of light duty. Shoot. me. now.
Class starts tomorrow!
Awesome class. Instructor is cool. I am so freakin exhausted though.
class is kicking my a$$. It's been so damn long since i've had to do lifts or transfers cause of the damn ankle and we started them this wk in class. I've gotten 100% on all quiz's so far.
i see ankle dr monday morning.
I'm back to full-duty. I went back into the classroom today after my appoint.
I'm officially unemployed as of yesterday. I'm totally ok with it. It was going to happen eventually. Now, i don't need to constantly stress about it. Plus, i don't need the snide remarks from people who have NO clue to the complete he!! i've been through the past 2 yrs.
My Dad is having alot going on medicially right now. Last wken he was at Surprise B-day party (after having a super high fever the day before) in PA. He passed out as the B-day person showed up, complete chaos. He was ambulanced to the hosp. He was dehydrated. This past thurs night he was having chest pain all NIGHT. He also found out he has lyme disease.
oh, and Jim's great, great nephew (17 yr old) has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.
My class is done. We start clinicials this wk. CNA written test and graduation is July 15th.
Jim's perm prosthetic leg will be ready July 12th!
Next wkend is the family reunion in NY state. It's going to be so awesome. I'd put the pics up from 2 yrs ago but since i have no control over who views this, i'm not.
We found Jim's daugther. She's 29 now. She's been looking for him for several yrs now. Wow, just wow.
My sister is pregnant. Due Feb 22.
trying to get ticker in here.
Lots of app's put in. Can't wait till Disney.
The job i really want is where Jim was last time for rehab. It would be perfect for getting my foot in the door. It's Sat-Sun 7am-7pm. Only wkends.
My issue with it though: Jim's daugther is living far away and would only be in our area on wkends. Neither of them drive so how exactly would they see each other?
Holy schoomly! Disney very soon!
Interview Monday afternoon. Rehab place, only wkends(unless thats changed).
Disney was awesome! Kids had such a blast. I think we (my whole family) really needed it.
Interview went awesome! I have another one with someone else today! I really think i'm gonna get it!!!
My other one went awesome too. I got the call yesterday to interview with the DON (her 2 assists interviewed me already) on next Tues. I'm getting my ducks in a row! I got my physical today and the paperwork that proves i got my hep b shots. I just need the redo of the TB test and urine screen.
Starting date would be Sept 20th. Orient for 2 wks. Then ................................................................................................
wait for it................
Congrats!!! I'm so excited to read great news from you!!!
They can't offer it until i get my actual license from the state. I'm scheduled to test Oct 21. The DON told me they'd keep it open for me. They have the "bridge to rn program" and will train people for different jobs in the company (ie: unit sec). It would be 12.50/hr. So now, i would't be able to start till Nov. They start orient the 3rd monday of every month. Testing Oct 21 puts me 3 days too late to start in Oct.
My sister's pregnancy is going good. It's another boy. As of now there are no medical issues like with her youngest.
tired of being lied to.
DON told me they weren't interviewing anymore and they'd hold the job for me. Yesterday i called and talked to her sect, she told me they couldn't hold it. Today: I see an ad on craigslist.
Dusty may be pregnant. Yeah, sorry but sooo not thrilled. She's not working. Doesn't have a stable life and could potentially go to jail (so not going there) if she doesn't str8en up. I'm not getting sucked into watchin a baby while she goes out partying.
So it's official. Dusty is :preggo:
