Hi and how are you all doing today. I had wanted to wish everybody here
a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving. And to tell you to try and see that you
eat enough Bird and t***s so you'll Pass Out for the next 20 or 30
minutes or more. ... LOL.
It's just a joke so please don't think I am asking you all to over-eat
to that point or anything. Just to make sure you have a really great
time enjoy yourselves totally.
As for me I will hope that there will be a Pecan Pie on the table for me
along with the Turkey and Gravy and T***s as well as lots of Pumpkin
Pie for that night.
I'm going thru a Lot of Health issues right now but I realize I still
have a Lot to Give Thanks for. Because I Still have Option.
I've been trying to hide how bad that my Kidneys have gotten.? I
really didn't want people to know?, but they've gotten really pretty
bad. Way back in September they opened up my wrist to create a shunt.
It's where they cut into an Artery & sew it into a Vein to use it for
dialysis at a later date.
They have got to go back and open up my forearm to raise it closer up to
the surface and leave enough of time for it to heal so they can use it
Well , I got a call from my Kidney dr. that both he and my regular dr.
wanted me in the Hospital the next day. My Function had gotten so low
that they now want to instal one of those ''Shunts'' in my neck because
I need to start my dialysis right now. As a formality I guess i'm been
put on the transplant list. But i'm not gonna hold my breath , and I
really don't think that I could go ahead and take one from one of my
children. I don't picture a good
parent letting that happen atleast not now I feel really depressed and
scared about what is going on with me right now.?
I have already had the surgery to have a Catheter put down inside my
Tuesday and I had to stay in the Hospital untill Saturday the 19th when
they let me go home. And i've already had two quick dialysis treatments
in the Hospital and started at the center on monday the 21st from 7 to
10:30 pm. It will be three days a week afterwards. My days will be
Tuesday & Thursday and Saturday from 7 to 10:30.
Sorry i've broken down and let you hear all of this. The folks here have
plenty of things to be concerned with other than hearing about my
troubles. Please don't think Too Little of me over this okay,?
It's just hard right now going thru it I feel afraid and alone. ? Not
really sorry over what has happened.
God knows that I could really use some friends right about now
Thinking of all my Friends
