Robert, give her a big hug from us. Glad she's getting out and back in her own bed.

Well, here I am jumping in late again.  I've been working so much that I haven't had much time to read posts.  Robert, so sorry to hear about your situation.  I know the roller coaster you are on all too well.  Between my wife and I, we've lost 3 parents in 7 years to cancer.  I applaud you for the attitude you are keeping in your posts.  Our prayers are with you and your family.  Same advice I gave Daniel, get rest when you can.  She's counting on you.  And whatever you do, fight the b*****d with everything you got!  This disease wins far too many battles as it is.

Well I am back.......lol  I brought Kimme home the other night and it has been just the two of us at home since then.  My sister in law has had the kids since Saturday and will probably have them until this Sunday.  We have enjoyed the time to ourselves and being able to get back to a "normal" life.  This is the first time that I have even turned my laptop on since the afternoon that they discharged her.

 

She is doing pretty good so far, still having a hard time getting her energy and strength back.  One of the Dr's mentioned that her "albumen" level was low (not enough protein in her blood stream) so i asked if the "Protein Shakes" would be of any benefit and he said ABSOLUTELY.  So, I went by the store on the way home yesterday and bought several packs of them for her and I am making her drink at least one a day......lol  She is slowly getting to where she is able to eat a little bit more at each meal so that will help a lot. They have postponed her next Chemo treatment until Dec 3 because of all the issues that she was having in the hospital. And because she has had so many issues with her heart rate and blood pressure, I have made her an appointment with MY Cardiologist on the 21st.  I know for a fact that he will get it resolved because I had been taking BP meds for 6-7 years and the Dr that I was going to never could get it down to where it needed to be. The first visit with him, he changed EVERY Med that I was on and I have not had any issues since (unless I forget to take them...lol)  He has done a lot of research and clinical trials at the University of Alabama/Birmingham Hospital and has had several studies printed in the medical journals!  He KNOWS his stuff so that will be one less thing I have to worry about with her.

 

I had planned to leave work and come home and plow until dark the day that she was discharged but that fell through............I told her that it was her fault...lol  I did spend about an hour or so "cutting the grass" yesterday.  It was more to pick up the leaves than anything.  I came back in the house one time to get my truck keys and as I walked through the den, she said "Therapy" and I just said YEP.......lol

That's a good woman, Robert. In spite of what she's going through, she understands that you need "therapy" to help you get through it too. If only we all could be that understanding in our dealings with each other at all times. You two are a fine example for us all.

So thankful to hear the good news Robert especially going into the weekend. This will give you both some much needed time together. My FIL had a very difficult time getting his bp meds right. Thanks for giving us all the opportunity to be with you both. God bless.

Well, I was hoping that the next post that I made on this thread would be GOOD news for a change............well it just isnt in the cards it seems.  I took Kimme to the Cardiologist the week before last and he pretty much told us that since she already had so many Dr's taking care of her, that he just needed to step aside and leave it to her Oncologist to be her "primary care" physician.  He did do an Echo-cardiogram and blood tests while she was in the office and ultimately had her Thyroid med dosage increased due to her Thyroid levels being HIGH.  They also doubled her Lasix dosage due to all of the fluid that she has been retaining in her legs. She has gained over 30 pounds in the last 2 1/2 weeks and that is not due to what she has been eating.  Well fast forward to last night a little after midnight, we went to bed and for a change she was able to get snuggled up close enough to me in the bed that I could actually hear her breathing and I could tell that something wasnt right.  I got concerned because she was breathing too fast and too shallow.  I got up and sent my sister in law (nurse) a text message to verify what her respiratory rate should be and it was almost DOUBLE what it should be. So I got up and called her oncologist's office and spoke to the Dr' on call and she told me "going by what you have told me and her current medical condition and complications, you need to call the paramedics and DO NOT TRY TO DRIVE HER TO THE ER YOURSELF. That in itself freaked me out. My sister in law had told me to get her sitting up and it should go down but it didnt.  I called the paramedics to come check on her and they suggested that she be taken by ambulance to the ER as well...........so they loaded her up and off she went again.  I stayed at the house long enough to get the kids out of bed, dressed and waited for my sister in law to show up to pick them up.  It was about 2am by this time, I was pulling out of the drive way as she pulled in the drive.  When I got to the hospital, her heart rate and respiratory rates were still way to high so they admitted her.  They ran CT scans, blood tests last night and then again this morning.  She has some fluid around her lungs but not enough to warrant them draining it right now but she does have fluid building up in her abdominal cavity again that they will probably have to drain at some point during her stay.  They are planning to keep her for the better part of next week so I will be spending the nights at the hospital with her at night and then going to work @3 and then going back to the hospital when I get off work.  I plan to have a nice long talk with her Oncologist Monday or whenever I have the chance.  I need some answers as to what I can expect as far as her prognosis is. She has pretty become immobile due to the fluid build up in her legs and I am not real comfortable with leaving her at home from 2am until 11:30 am while I am at work.  She can get up out of her recliner and go to the bathroom but it is a MAJOR struggle for her and wears her out.  Her mother came and got her last Monday and spent the day with her at her brothers house. Well when she brought her home, she tripped and fell on the step up onto the front deck. She could NOT get up on her own and I just about pulled my back out picking her up.

 

Ok enough rambling for tonight.  I am exhausted and I am sure I am forgetting something.  I will update everyone as I get them.

Hate to hear she's having such an extreme hard time...all of you for that matter.  Sometimes life just isn't fair, and you guys know that all too well.  My prayers for you will continue Robert!
