Now Playing: Day 819-The Final Road To Survival
Here we are once again waiting to see how many fur babies Littleblue will be having this time around.... After her last heat she had 10 hedgehog puppies. So far she has 11 various stuffed animal fur babies and its only been two days! Hee,hee,hee,hee... No. We aren't talking real puppies but don't tell Littleblue that because if you ask her she will tell you otherwise. She is too cute and such a good Mommy to her stuffed animal fur babies. Very protective too!
Since my insides are still coming back down from the relentless stress brought on by family we decided to have a low-key day at home then take a walk later at the local park. Eric bought a few new Wii games to add to our collection. We finally got to play the game "Operation." Who would had thought I could actually do surgery? PRETEND surgery but regardless I was surprised I did so good and even won the game. WOOHOA! Now maybe if I play long enough I can be Wii surgeon certified and do my own operation. Hahahahaha! I can't "DENY" myself as my own surgeon can I? The game was one word: FUN!
I am now on a completely different diet until early next week so my doctors can make sure my pancreas isn't going against me. They are hoping yesterdays problems and rapid high sugar levels were due to stress. No one can blame any of my specialists for getting very frustrated with family who don't respect not only them as my treating doctors but also me-their patient. Its bizarre how family has been continuing to act even after being advised to refrain from causing me stress because it is deadly to my internal organs. I see it as one word:
Eric not only had to deal with family yesterday but after contacting family in regards to once again causing me stress he was met by a local officer who was called by family. What the family member didn't tell them was the entire story. Only one side. When the officer finally heard the other side and was given information by my specialist and that Eric is my spouse the officer instead shook his head in disbelief. He was shocked family would do such a thing. Honestly Eric wasn't but I am beyond embarrassed! Eric has tried over and over and over and over again to have family understand actions that lead to stress that they should not be partaking in but instead should be stepping up to the plate offering nothing but 110% support. Not stress. Seems they are too busy. I have heard the excuses so many times I lost track. Eric had even spoken to a family member on the phone giving them examples of the situations but instead with them receiving the stress that I am going through. The family member replied, "I wouldn't like it if it was me receiving the stress." The problem is family is now becoming a medical liability to my fragile health. I agree with my doctors that this will and must now stop. If I have to remove myself from the family who have zero respect for me nor could care less about their family member then it will be done. It has started today. I have enough on my plate to manage being sick and doing weekly treatments. My doctors have their hands full keeping my head above water without family trying to push me back down. Sorry for venting but that is what this blog is for and its fact. I am sure many can relate to family causing family harmful stress to those who are sick. Hopefully if anyone who is reading this and are one of those causing stress to a family member who is sick just remember you become a liability to their health.
We were suppose to get rain today but instead we got clouds and wind. The good part was the wind helped cool things down. We finally were also able to walk at the park later this evening to check up on the baby Malard and white duck. Once Eric pulled the car up to park I looked down by the lake and saw both of the baby ducks laying near the other ducks and geese. Isn't wildlife amazing that when babies are abandoned by their family others will take over and protect them? We were both beyond RELIEVED to see them being accepted and even better was when we went to feed them. They must had learned to eat bread from watching the adult ducks. Thank goodness they are doing really good and I can't wait to visit them again.
I am so glad they are calling for much cooler temperatures next week. This gal is ready for fall, winter & SNOW! We have been looking through so many house listings in Nevada that all the houses are starting to look the same. Hahahaha! One thing that has been missing is grass and allergies. Instead there is plenty of sand and I am OK with that seeing my immune system won't have to fight as hard. Same with stress. Hopefully that won't be following us out west when we move either. AMEN!
There is nothing more powerful when going through any chronic or terminally condition than a strong support system. Family should be there to lean on, not to bring you down. I have found out in less than 48 hours how fast stress from others can derail your health. If family can't respect my treating specialists or their family member than this family member will be bowing out. Things MUST change and it will start today with me.
