And so it goes

Thursday, July 20, 2017

I have been logging on and tracking blood sugar and not much else.

My son has me on a WFPB diet (see How Not to Die or his site www.heartstrong.com

The weight has been falling off. Having labs done tomorrow to be sure it's just eating right.
Steve is anxious for me to get off my myriad of drugs.

Gets harder at work every day. Now a new snafu:

My life partner of 18 years (look at my photos. Suz is next to Wonder Woman) has undergone in the past year and a half: lump in breast, lung cancer dx, discovering abdominal aneurysm needs surgery as it's too big, during testing before that they discovered she needed a triple bypass. Somewhere in all that they said she had autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Every time that kicks up she has to have chemo treatments.

Dr says they're not working. She is admitted to the hospital having a complete blood transfusion. He is afraid she's bleeding internally. Am going to hospital tomorrow after my labs.

Oh, and I forgot to mention the PAD. She can hardly walk, even with a walker.

Please pray for us. Send healing and light if you are into that. I know we all have our lessons. I know we all make our transition eventually, but none of us are ready to lose her.

If you have actually read this pity party sob story...thank you. Bless you, and please have a great day tomorrow.

    I am so sorry things are so hard - and don't you dare call your blog a pity party! It is one of our blessings that we can share and experience the love and support of those who care - often there are more who care than we realize. You need to stay strong and I believe that our prayers will be a support. Know you will be remembered in mine -
