Okay, Bilateral Carotid Artery Ultrasound results: no blockages seen. Yea!!! No Roto-rooting the arteries! The next test is next Tuesday, a resting echocardiogram...this will show how my heart valves are working at rest, which is when she heard the new murmur.

I also woke up thins morning to a horrible pain in my eye. I have a small ulceration on the eye it's self and they gave me some antibiotic eye drops for it. Feels better, now I have to remember to use the eye drops every 4 hours.

Otherwise, I am goofing off.
Yay for not needing Roto-Rootering of the arteries.

Bummer about the eye, but I'm glad to hear you are getting it taken care of.

Echocardiogram to find the murmur. I wish you luck. They have never been able to figure out why I have a heart murmur. It doesn't seem to do anything, but to be on the safe side, I am supposed to have subacute endocharditis prophylaxis (That's a mouthful, ain't it?) before any kind of procedure.

I have never been one to skirt around words. Cancer is cancer. Died is died. But these past few days, no one has used any of the words they don't want to hear. As a result the doctors realize that the questions not asked show that they don't want to consider the worst scenario. I could use a good strong tranquilizer right now. This is so hard. To hell with trying to be strong for others. Just knowing that all of my DC Family is praying for her gives me a feeling of help. Thank you all for yor caring support. I feel so helpless right now. I want to scream at the doctors to hurry up and give me some answers. I want to be there in the OR so I can hold her hand and tell her it will be all right. I want to hold my little girl.
I don't even know what to say. If you were here or I were there, I'd just hug you or sit by you or hold your hands and let you cry or yell or laugh or whatever you needed. Please don't forget to let others be strong for you while you are being strong for her. I'll keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

It sounds like you had a great shopping trip before the hail started, TL!

I received my red hibiscus dried flowers recently, and have really been enjoying it.

I'm fiddling around on here before I begin driving my oldest around. We're going to a job interview first then off to a tour of the university campus so she won't feel quite so lost in a couple of weeks.

I've been tossing around dinner ideas in my head, and had sort of decided to do a pork roast with all the trimmings but I've been reading about tacos and now I don't know what to do. Hmmmm.

I wish I could still get my parents to do that :) I start school on Monday and I still feel lost!! What kind of school supplies did she say she needs? Do people still use pencils and notebooks? LOL!

I'm getting ready to go into the city to see my respirologist. I am not looking forward to the appointment. 2 months ago he insisted I go off my anti-inflammatory because it was hampering my breathing. I reluctantly did so and 2 days after weaning off completely I couldn't walk 10 steps because I was so inflamed and it triggered much of my pain. So I went back on and have been doing somewhat better since (it is taking awhile).

So, today I get to tell him that while I got a small relief in my breathing, it wasn't enough to not be in control of my pain. The weather is less hot and that in itself is helping the breathing so that is a plus.

I am feeling pretty good pain wise today and confident that I can handle myself well....plus DH is going with me as back-up!

Where are you going and what are you taking, Skittle? Sorry, it is probably here somewhere but I was hit and miss around here for so long.

St. Cloud tech. I'm taking intro to communication studies, intermediate algebra, general biology, medical terminology, and infection control. All I really have are a couple notebooks, pens and pencils, graphing calculator, and my laptop. Can't really think of much more I would need... If you think of anything else I should have I would appreciate the input :) I'm a little nervous and would like to be prepared.
