I filed bankruptcy and it’s like a full time job getting the stuff ready. I am so freakin broke! But I’m alive, which just makes the whole “being broke” thing a nuisance.
So, for those of you who have been keeping up with me, yes, I was in the hospital until this past Thursday, I have 2 pulmonary embolisms. See, I’m a mortal too. I had never experienced one before but it was a sharp pain that came on strongly near where my primary tumor was. It was also my daughter's 13th birthday. I got home from picking her up from friends, and the pain was so unbearable I was actually crying. Karley never sees this, so she began pleading for me to go to the hospital or call 911. All I wanted to do was sleep. But, she wouldn't leave me alone so I got a close friend to take me. I was really worried it was like gas or something, but better to be safe than sorry.
After several hours, a CT scan, Echocardiogram, and utlrasounds, it was determined that I had a few pulmonary embolisms in my right lung. Not what I was expecting. A pulled muscle maybe, but not this. I began my MD google search and did not like the results. I'm on a blood thinner now and was released after 4 days. I spent one night in the ER because they were so crowded due to the flu. I didn't feel I was ready to be released, but knew other people needed my bed. And some new law in Georgia prevents pain medication from being released easily, but I can't take anti-inflammatories. Totally gonna have to go after this law when I get to feeling better.
Not going to lie, there are several times during this experience I was sure I wouldn't make it. Even today, I felt like I was dying, like this was the beginning of the end. But I didn't make it this far to be taken out by a pulmonary embolism(s), so time to rise up. I read the recover time can be weeks, months and even years. It's different for everyone. Right now I'm having trouble walking, staying awake, talking a little but it could all be due to the blood thinners I have to get used too.
I just want to thank God, the hospital, my family and friends all for helping me through this. And thank God for giving me a daughter who selflessly pushed for me to go to the hospital on her own birthday. It gives me more birthdays with her. Listen to your body peeps. Better to be safe than sorry. Thank you all for your continuous prayers and God Bless. Ok....gonna try and sleep now. ❤️
I'm no where giving up....but I may need some help since it's usually just Karley and me. I just need to work on building my strength back up without over doing it. I'll keep you guys updated. r For now my mom is staying here to help me. God bless her. Love you all!
