I had been waiting to hear when I would be getting a mechanism to deliver medication directly to my spine, called a Baclophen pump. Praise God Almighty it will happen Monday, Feb.1st, this year. This medication eliminates muscle spasms in my legs, due to m.s. I praying that this new delivery system will reduce my daytime sleepiness as well.
I haven’t posted anything to this blog of mine, for quite awhile simply because I would be whining a lot!!LOL!!
In all seriousness, I am not doing well. I am still battling m.s.-related sleepiness; I’ll be undergoing a procedure to install a pump that will deliver medication directly to my spine. This will alleviate the sleepiness, I’ m going through, I hope. I’m waiting for my insurance to approve this.
I do thank God for I am capable of doing nowadays
I hope to add to my blog at least every other day.
Bye for now. . .
since writing on my blog!! It’s got to do with fatigue primarily. I hate this, but there’s not a lot I can do about it, except pray for strength to endure it.
My story is going very slow–I’m at the half-way point, right now. I’m stalled in the midst of the climatic scene of the story. So far, I’ve no external conflicts. I’m not exactly sure why I’m in this slump, but I don’t like it!!
WARNING–This is a rant!!
Simply my body that’s not tolerating having to deal nearly every moment of every waking day, this cruddy disease named multiple sclerosis.
In less than 5 days this past week, I had to go to the e.r., because of a clog in part of equipment. I won’t go into details, here, suffice it, to say, I hated it.
My life’s statement: ‘It could be worse’ is beginning to lose its brilliance!
I plot & plog on!
Some more photos from earlier today. We got a lot of rain later on. It’s interesting to live in a valley where the weather change so drastically from one minute to another. I hope you’re having a great evening. Enjoy!
Tracey V. Kettles– July 9, 1961 – January 16, 2008
I met Tracey when we were both homeless, back in ’88. She had moved here to Phoenix from Colorado Springs, with her ‘best friend’ who wound up abandoning her. She came to live in the small shelter, run by the Catholic Charities.
She rescued me from further homelessnessI by suggesting I go on Social Security disability income like her, so I did.
We became fast pals, and we lived together for 5 years. We parted amicably.
I decided to check on my old pals, last year. I googled Tracey’s name. What came up both shocked and saddened me: on http://www.findagrave.com. She died in January of 2008.
Tracey had been my best friend when I was at my lowest point;I don’t know how she died, I have my ideas, though. I pray she’s at peace!
me? For starters, I had to go to the emergency room, on June 21st, for I had been vomiting blood, about midnight. It was only twice, but once in the e.r., I did more of that. My diagnosis was g.e.r.d.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or what
I describe it heartburn multiplied a 1000 times!
I got a small complication with this: the last place was in, an skilled nursing facility, gave me a list of my medications including the 2 to treat the gerd. It was implied that I can get my meds filled with this document. No, not according to the pharmacist at the Walgreens I regularly go to. So, I don’ t have these meds!!
My plan of action is call to my doctor’s office, state my difficulty, and see what happens, Monday.
All this has brought about delays, in everything I’ve been doing. UGH!!
I’m not genuinely stressed about this. The Lord is doing a good work in all of this! He is sovereign!
