call me the tumornater.

February 14, 2016

 

Some day I hope to understand and know the cause of why I keep getting these damn tumors.  I had two more removed last week.  One on my thyroid, which was large and another in my breast which was smaller were taken out.  I am recovering nicely, my throat is quite sore but I get better day-by-day. I wish I could understand, I wish medicine was able to tell me why, but I cant because they don’t know.  I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired.

            Aside from my throat and breast being sore my bottom left lip and chin are completely numb.  I guess they may have hit a nerve or something taking out my tumor.  It’s the most annoying part of the healing process so far.  I feel like I’ve been at the dentist and gotten Novocain shot up.

            I am so thankful for my parents and Josh’s wonderful family for helping take care of me.  They are seriously the best and I am not sure what I would do without them. I have had the best care 24 hours a day since I left the hospital. 

Don’t get me started on the in hospital care.  My doctors are amazing but the nurses lack understanding.   They have no idea at all about how to deal with my illnesses.  The process for everything is completely contradictory than I need.  I had to bring in all my own meds because the hospital pharmacy doesn’t carry the ones I need…yet policy is that I cannot use them so….uhh….yeah.

They made me eat a full breakfast before Id be able to be discharged, uhh I cannot eat many things without reaction…so I ate some eggs and went into reactive mode. BUT they didn’t have my meds, I had to sneak into my bag and take my meds to keep from going into anaphylaxis on the down low. How ridiculous is that?!

I made it though and realized that I am much safer in my own home with my Joshua because he knows exactly how to handle my illnesses and how to respond to each moment.  I love that man.  He really is my hero.
