  • Apologies for Unavailability (To Caedus, Battlers & Healers and Friends)

    Hey Guys,

    Some of you know I have been sick on and off (mostly on) for the past three months. My husband finally dragged me to the ER and unfortunately to my horror, I was admitted yesterday afternoon. I am praying to every God and Goddess known to man they release me later today, but I may not be able to get online while I'm here because there are techs, doctors, the pulmonology therapists, phlebotomist, on and on. I'll try if it gets boring and the "excitement" (bleh) dies down. So please forgive me for missing meetings and for being slow to reply. But breathing is important and I've been struggling with this for too long and my lungs are absolutely raw.

    Anyway, I hope to be home soon and see you in the Castle then!

    <3

          Thank you all so much, I have been so utterly bored but internet has been awful up here at the "Penthouse" (aka 8th floor with a "good view", though I got a good view of some pretty summer night storms). They administered my last round of antibiotics and though I was a bit wheezy at my last breathing treatment, I have had remarkable improvement. I have to have one more intravenous round of steroids and the doctor said at 8am they start doing discharges so I am calling the nurse 8am sharp and praying to go home! I hate both steroids and antibiotics and I am going to have to get a new nebulizer and continue treatment at home but I will take it. I miss my bed and my fur baby and being able to sleep with my husband. (He stayed here with me the first night and I sort of end up squished against the bed rail so I wouldn't fall off, lol.) Anyway, depending on how things go, I don't know if I'll be on Monday but my aim is to get Di out in CM again on Tuesday if I can. Love y'al and thanks so much for the support and understanding!

          Hopefully see you all very soon <3

              I am so doctored out, but thank you!! I have a follow up with my pulmonologist today then another on Monday. It's been rough and I have not been reacting well with all the mix of crap they have been poisoning me with. I haven't had headaches or vertigo for a long time but I have been getting some very bad spells, some nearly to the point of migraines. So that, and my internet was going in and out all day yesterday, has kept me from wanting to stare at a screen for overly long. I'm starting to do a little better though. I don't know if they are going to put me through a battery of pulmonary tests today or make me come back (again) for them but fingers crossed. I just want to get back on my feet and get to the bloody gym! This sloth like stasis is so not me...

              My husband is not doing so well with his heart and he may have to be admitted (ugh) but hopefully not. Fortunately he works at the hospital but we've been on edge. He skipped his cardiac appointment to be with me at the hospital (which I urged him not to) and now he's paying for it, so depending on what happens I may have to book it back there after my appointment. I just don't know. The Lowrey House is just having a really difficult Summer this year. Sigh.

              Anyway, just trying to let you all know I'm still here! I'm not dead yet! (Yes, queue your Monty Python quotes : ) Thanks so much for your concern, understanding and support. I can't fully express with words how I sincerely appreciate it. So... thank you! <3

              Hopefully I will see y'all online later today... fingers crossed!

                Hey... sorry I havenít been online as intended. After my appointment, and during my husbandís shift, he was admitted. He has afib, and that has caused him to go into the early stages of congestive heart failure with fluid backing up into his lungs. Therefore, Iím living again at the hospital to help him and simply be with him and keep him company. He should be able to come home once they figure out the right configuration of meds, but that may take a few more days. It could be tomorrow for all I know. Iíll come back online as soon as things calm down and Iím home. Hoping that will soon.

                    Oh, no, I am so sorry to hear that your husband is sick, too! Don't worry about being offline; just do what you need to do to take care of yourself and your husband. I hope and pray that both of you recover and feel better and are able to go home very soon.

                      Thank you everyone for being so sweet, kind and understanding. It's been a very difficult past few months and July has been the absolute worst of it. But my husband is feeling better, I'm having some weird infection caused by one of the meds so my voice is gone again and I'm taking another medication to counter -that-. Ugh. However, I am at least not feeling like I'm sick so I am logged in and starting to climb Mount Scroll. I also received some very nice get well letters that way for which I am too grateful for. It is the good people here that always keep me coming back. You all have helped me get through some of the worst patches in my life. I do not have many friends here at home, and I don't have any, other than my sister, that I see on a regular basis. I feel rather blessed to have those that I can turn to, even if it is just in text.

                      My point is... thank you for all the well wishes and kindness. You all are such wonderful people and I feel very fortunate to have you in my life. : )

                      Sincerely,
                      Stacy
