kimmek Posted November 21, 2005 Share Posted November 21, 2005 Mom ahs been home about 4 weeks now since her last visit to the hosptail, although we didhave a scare earlier in the week where her breathing again went out of control and she called me to call 911 (another thing she refuses to do fo herself), but when they got there about the same time i did they found her oxygen tubing which is always tangled up actaully had a kink in it completely cutting off her O2. went ahead and took her to the ER, as i know her too well and she would sit and wonder and then end up in a full blown state of panic from the what if's. All was fine and it actually was the first time ever we went to the ER and was not admitted so that made her happy. Went for her 3 month Onc check-up and no scans were ordered since thye were all done recently in the hospital, but the doc told Mom she look and seemd better than she hadever seen her and not to change a thing she was doing. She has her good days and bad like everyone, but she is accepting now that all days will not be good and she cannot let those doays throw her inot a depression or worry. Slow progress, but i am seeing progress from her which makes me cry i am so happy. Finally had to just tell her "like it is", and that she was drivingm e in to the nut house, and if I went away for a short visit where would dhe be?? The job of course did not work out, not because of mom or anything just techinical BS,. Seems XXX cable was sold to XXX cable (whom was my last employer who had bought out XXX cable during my emplyee ment, and my entire department was eliminated,and I decided i just really dont wanna play that game again, so back to my original plan and have enrolled in the local jr college and start in January. Thats gives me the flexiable schedule for mom, a opportunity to fulfilla life ong dream, and most important just be doing something for Kim. I am really excited. I knew taking the job was throwing aways this chance of school again....but im getting on up there and s kinda now or never. As always I read everyday and Pat and Brian you are very dear in my heart i say an extra prayer for you guys, and Andrea you are in my thoughts during your extended bed rest which will all be worth it!! as well as everyone else...i am truly beginning to believe in the power of prayer, not that i never really did, something is just different now. God bless and everyone, and have a great Turkey day, whatever the day holds for you. No plans at all here. Love Kim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
