bad news

Thursday, April 14, 2011

today wasn;t a good day. went to doctor for a follow up. and i recieved bad news. i was told if i didn;t have back surgry i could in up in a wheel chair the rest of my life. than in the same breath she told me. if i do the surgry i;ll end up in a wheel chair. and she won;t take the chance on the surgry. because its to close to my spine.
so on the way home . i did a lot of crying no matter what i do its the same results.i really had high hopes on this and got shot down.
last week end i saw my new granddaughter for the first me. she weighs 16lbs. when i tryed to pick her up . i all most fell wi her. i couldn; even hold my 5 month old again i cryed on the way home emoticon.
tim told me we;ll just take everyday as it comes. i jus didn; want to be in a wheel chair for the rest of my life. because my mom was when my children were little.and i didn;t want the same faith for my grand children.
i guess with a prayer and my family we;ll get thru his he best we can.but a still can;t sop the tears i;m going to take my klotipan. and hope tomorrow is a better day

thanks for letting me get this off my chest emoticon

    So sorry, dear, I hope that as you continue to lose weight it will help a little. I know that some injuries are just that... no matter that your weight. But, it can't hurt to keep on trying and looking forward. I'll keep you in my prayers!

    I'm so sorry to hear your news. You are fortunate to have a great hubby like Tim. One day at a time, especially with him to support you, sounds like the way to go. Let us know if there's anything we can do. Keeping you in my thoughts.

    Praying for strength for you. Take it one day at a time. Tomorrow is not guaranteed to be anything but tomorrow. Perhaps you will be mobile for a lot longer than you think. My grandkids know they can crawl on Gramma even if I can't pick them up. We find ways to share with them. Keep the faith.

    Get a second opinion. Let somebody else with a fresh perspective wrap their head around your bad problems. Maybe this isn't the only alternative there is... maybe your doctor missed something, or hadn't yet heard of a new option. No ONE person knows EVERYTHING there is to know. :) Good luck! *Hugs*

    My Mum was told about 20 years ago that she would be in a wheel chair fairly soon (stenosis of the spine and arthritis) - she is 90 this year and still waiting for the wheel chair - hasn't had spine surgery, only both hips replaced.

    When my older grandson was born I was unable to pick him up, BUT I could happily hold him if someone picked him up and gave him to me. There ARE ways around it.

    If you DO end up in a wheel chair, don't despair re the little children. I know a lot of little children who absolutely LOVED riding on Grandma or Grandpa's lap while they were in a chair. (I was a care-giver for the elderly and disabled, so saw quite a bit of it.)

    I'm sending really good, strong vibes your way.
    Take care,
    Kris xx
