What the fuck?!?!
You’ve probably heard me mention recent;y that Bill hasn’t been feeling very well lately. I haven’t gone into very much detail for the most part because there isn’t really all that much to tell. He’s got pains in his back, neck, legs and lower abdomen all the time, he’s not sleeping regularly at all, he has problems with his eyes flaring up once or twice a month, and at least 2 or 3 days a week, he’s sick to the point of throwing up.
He hasn’t been to work since we got back from Las Vegas just about a month ago and it has been getting worse every day.
But it’s not new. He’s had these symptoms for the past two years or so but they have been getting gradually worse. He’s been going to doctors and having tests done and this doctor treats him for this symptom ad that doctor treats his for that symptom…..but the symptoms don’t really go away, they are just masked by the medication and eventually, he builds an immunity and has to stop.
He went up the mountains on Sunday to see if the fresh air would help any. It didn’t. He felt just as bad being up ther as he did here. And yesterday it got really bad….he called me around 11:30 and told me that he was going to te emergency room.
I left work early, got Brittany an went right up there.
He had an MRI done last Friday and I called to get the results while I was on my way up there….oh, no, they won’t be readyfor 7-10 business days – what the fuck was I thinking. Dude, if it took us 7-10 working day to get the results of anything we do, we really wouldn’t be a very popular hospital….know how long it takes us? 24 hours. And that’s only because the specimens have to process overnight.
Anyway, on the way up, Bill called me to let me know they were sending him home. And that it was all his imagination…sure, he might have a few aches and pains, but he was making it out to be worse than it really is. Riiiiight….why didn’t I think of that? He can barely walk…..just sitting up knocks the wind out of him. But it’s all in his head.
I had to come back to go to work today so I got up and left at 4:15….but, because of this huge accident on the turnpike last night, it took me 4 and a half hours to get from the house to Bittany’s school and then to work when it should have only taken 2 and a half. I got off at Quakertown and came all the way down 309….it was alright until I got near the turnpike at Ft. Washington. Took me more than an hour to go 5 miles.
Anyway, Bill seems to be feeling a little better today than he was yesterday and said that if he feels the same tomorrow, he’s gonna try to come home. I was going to leave Brittany at my mom’s tonight and go back up, but I’ve had enough drivig for one day. I may go up tomorrow though, and escort him back down, just in case.
We are going to find an internist for him to go to though……there is definitely someting going on in there and rather than six doctors with different pieces of the puzzle that won’t listen when we tell them what the others say, we need someone that wll be able to look at it all and put it together in one big picture.
P.S. – you may notice some missing letters and other crap….my keyboard is wonky and I don’t feel like going back to fix any errors……
