Can't Say Anything NICE Don't Say Anything!

I typed this up last week and forgot to post. We left out of town last Friday. When I got home today I had a few phone calls saying I hadn't posted in to long.

O.k. so my mother taught me if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all......

I think that has been my problem lately with not updating my blog. I thought last May this trail was over then they found the brain tumor which all went really well until I had radiation. Then it seems like I just couldn't get back to a normal. Every time I turn around with this radiation something else pops up. The last month I have been dealing with being very tired. So tired that I while unloading dishes I have to sit down and take a break. Dr. Rado's office run some test this last month but kept telling me it wasn't my thyroid or my pituitary gland. Which all my system fit with that diagnoses. So I became very frustrated. So they decided since they couldn't figure out what was wrong with me they would send me to a endocrinologist. Basically they are a gland doctor. Rado's office doesn't think I have a thyroid problem or a pituitary problem but they think something is wrong. So they called over to Dr. Wilson one of the two endocrinologist in the tri-cities. They said it was urgent. So I got an appointment for Dec 2 that is when you get an appointment when it is urgent. NICE!!! So basically they are tell me there is something really wrong but it can wait a month and a half. So you can just have absolutely no energy for the next month and a half. Then who knows how long to get you better after that. So if you can't tell I am not very happy with the doctors. Luckily I see Dr. Kris who is my life savor. He said you have a theiord and a pituitary problem. And he put me on some vitiams last Friday. Since then I have been getting better. Thank goodness for Dr. Kris or I would still be laying in bed for our family vacation. I have been in a panic because we leave today for Disney World and I thought I might not make it. I am still not 100% but I am feeling well enough to go.

I am also waiting for CAT scan results from Dr. Fewel. He is my neurologist (brain tumor doc). About two weeks ago it felt like my scull is starting to cave in. I have been having some head symptoms. So I am hoping that there is something they can do to help my headaches and dizziness.

So I am really feeling bad for my kids we keep telling them I am not sick anymore which I am not but them I am always laying on the couch not feeling well. So I am hoping soon my kids will be able to believe me that I am not sick anymore.

So you see if you can't say anything nice you shouldn't say anything at all.

Aren't you home from your trip already? Hope you had a great time. I can't wait to hear how much fun you all had. Hopefully the vitamins are still helping until you can see the endocrinologist. Even if you think you have nothing nice to say, you still say it nicely! I love to read your updates!

That's got to be so frustrating to have no energy and not knowing what's wrong. My friend just had an "urgent" surgery that took them a month to schedule, so it's not just there! I hope you have fun in Disneyworld!

Glad you updated. It's okay to be frustrated with how things are going! To be cancer free but now feel exhausted everyday must be so difficult. I have a post it note for me to make an appointment with Dr. Wilson on my computer screen, so it was funny to read about your appointment set for him just inches below my note! I wonder how long I will be waiting for my appointment since I am not urgent! I think you should call and ask to be put on a waiting list or no show list. Or just bug them every day at 10 am! :)

I have been thinking about you and wondering what has been going on. I saw your parents a while ago and they said you were still having some tests done. I hope this chapter in your life will close soon and you and your family can move on. You have fought hard. Keep putting one foot in front of the other, no matter how slow, and enjoy your trip with your family. It sounds like it is going to be a great vacation.

so glad dr. kris is able to get you treated...sounds like we need more docs like him. i think you gotta let out some of the not so great stuff otherwise it will just boil up inside you and then who know's what may come out! :)

Vanessa said...
