My thoughts and concerns for today

Haven't had much time to be on line this week. With my mom being sick and me having to go take care of her, plus trying to give the kids their mid- terms, I just haven't had much time to do to much. Today we are having Jb's birthday party here at the house. So, Saturday I hoping to write out the links for fun Monday and have them ready for everyone. I really need to get out there and take a picture of my road. LOL!
Today is Daniel's last day at work till after the 1st. This really sucks, because we really need the money, but I guess we will hang in there. God hasn't let us down yet! I'm hoping with him having 2 1/2 - 3 weeks off that he'll help me finish remodeling this house instead of stay gone hunting. I guess I'll have to wait and see.
I finally have got the house de cluttered except going through Jb's clothes and them 3 junk drawers we have. I have no idea what to do with them drawers, so I'm not going to worry with them. As far as JB's clothes maybe we can get that done next week.
Over all life is good! I just don't know about momma. I feel we need to put her in the hospital. Her breathing isn't any better so, I guess I'll have to take her back to the Dr. today. They were going to put her in the other day, but she talked them out of it. I'm just hoping her and the Dr. don't wait to late like they have the past 2 years and she has to be in ICU 10 days. Momma has an immune deficiency and COPD. With her immune deficiency it is hard for her to fight off any infection. She has infusions every month, but they aren't working. I had the Dr. to check her IGG levels last month and they are lower than when we first started this treatment. I have asked him if he can change the treatment or increase it, but he keeps ignoring me. So, I don't know which way to go next. There is not that many Drs out there that know how to deal with this because it is so rare. Plus, I don't think the Dr that is taking care of mom's treatments knows much about this area either. Don't get me wrong, I think he is good at treating cancer, but not this. He and I have had a few rounds.
Well, I guess I'm finish with rambling at the moment. LOL!
Take care and have a nice day!

I hope the doctors find out the problems they need to treat specifically. I hope you Dan Dan stays home to help with renovating, at least some of the time. In your busy time, take time to treat yourself and take care of yourself.

I'm sorry your mom is so sick. And sorry that her doctor doesn't seem to be very good at listening.

I hope she doesn't need to be hospitalized,

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. It is so difficult to have a sick parent - especially when you think that they could be getting better care.

Take care of you.

I understand the problems with immune deficiency. My niece is still fighting a fungal infection that almost killed her. They have sent her home for the holidays hoping to lift her spirits and get her to eat. Then it's back to fighting the cancer.

Hang in there, both of you. Give mom a hug from us in the Midwest. Then give yourself one. I'm thinking about you.

Sorry that your family has this extra stress at this time of year. I'll be thinking of you and yours. Take care!

I'm sorry you're struggling with this Kitten. Have you talked to anyone with hospice care? Even if she's not ready for it, they may be more knowledgable then the Dr., if they've dealt with it hands on. Some Dr.'s really aren't.

Anyway, hugs and good luck.
