2018 Is Disappearing!
Tuesday, October 30, 2018
I'm back after being AWOL for almost an entire year. A lot has happened but not much of it has been positive!
I've been sick more than I thought possible. I thought 2017 was rough with losing the sight in my left eye, getting c-dif, and having a heart attack. 2018 hasn't improved! My eye has become painful so now I go once a month for injections in it. I can no longer walk without my walker due to my knee and ankle, I had kidney stones and had surgery to put a stint in and then had the stones broken up and the stint removed. A "porcelain" gallbladder was discovered during the x-rays for the kidney problem and I had to have my gallbladder removed. i did okay for a few weeks and then ended up back in the hospital with a UTI that went septic. I guess I was about 18 hours from death but received massive antibiotics through IVs. I've also had a few cardiac "incidents" due to A-fib.
Now I have decided to do something that I said I would never do. After talking to all of my doctors, I have agreed to gastric bypass surgery. My insurance has okayed it because of the letters the doctors wrote to them, so I am just now starting that journey. It will take several months to complete everything required and have all the tests needed before the surgery.
Something great that happened was adopting Squeak and Ping.
Squeak has taken over the bed and Ping likes to lay on my lap (thus the close-up). Squeak is 9 and Ping is 7.
