Raising Special Needs Kids Raising Special Needs Kids

How much more? Stressed here *EXTRA info in red*

Yesterday I found out that Lina doesn't have strabimus. So now back to trying to figure this out. Now comes the scoliosis x-ray. She goes to school late tomorrow so it is time to take her to get her cholesterol test done. I hate those because they are a fasting test.

Today took dh to Dr. after an ekg, chest x-ray he left with a script being faxed to the pharmacy and Dr said to it pick up immediately. One was for nitro,  the other was a second blood pressure medication. DH is being referred to a cardiologist because Dr didn't like what he saw on the x-ray but the ekg was good. Just got a call from radiology about the x-ray they told him that there is a nodule on the right side of his heart. So now I get to add him to my list of people needing to see specialists. The Dr said that it sounds like dh has been having angina for the last couple of months or so. After the Dr gets this cardiac thing figured out then they are going to tackle his possible sleep apnea. Between him & Lina I may decide that sleeping is over-rated. 

I think I need to get really good and drunk right now. To bad I can't drink anymore :( :(   I am glad that I don't panic but thinking about all this is just adding to the headache I've had for the last 4 days.

 

**Well yesterday wasn't fun getting all that info. Today Wed. was even worse. 1st we did get the call for DH's CT scan appt tomorrow afternoon. I had to make 4 phone calls to try to find the kids medical records from the clinic that their mother had them going to. I decided to change their Dr and his office and their records were supposed to be sent over to the new Dr. New Dr hasn't gotten them, old clinic says they were sent in OCT '12. I know the records were requested 2 times so now I have to have his office request them again. Well I finally found out that I can get the lab results that I need for R which is one of the errands that I had to do today. I had to gas from the lawn mower gas can to get to the gas station (no biggie) get to station fill van, pull away from pump, strange sound coming from front of van, got out & looked. FRONT LEFT TIRE FLAT AS A PANCAKE! Called the tire shop that put them on he sent a guy to rescue me, I had a screw in the tire giving it a slow leak, got it fixed and on my way to finish the errands that HAD to get done today since tomorrow will be cut in half due to his appt.

Instead of getting drunk I need to schedule time for me! I need to sit and cry for about an hour then I should be fine to continue to handle all of this again.

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE HUGS, GOOD THOUGHTS & EVERYTHING! It means a lot knowing that their are people that understand what I'm going thru!

Oh my, you have a ton of things to worry you right now.  It seems like once something happens 3 or 4 things follow.  At least that's how it happens to us.  I hope everything goes well. 

I really hope that your headache gets better.  (I get those quite often, and they aren't fun!!)

I think my headache is related to my sinus' having gone haywire. I had hoped for a little down time since softball season is ending.

Take a brake and love on them make sure you remember how great full you are to be the one to take them they have the best (you). Sorry its overwhelming but its sounds like your tough enough to get though it and enough love to give to make it bearable.

My heart goes to you.  So much to handle.  My husband has sleep apnea and had a huge number of times he stopped breathing during the test.  It is much better now that he has his cpap.  Hated it at first, but wouldn't be without now.  Good luck to all of your.

 Thanks Grammajuie. I think after he goes thru the CT and sees the cardiologist he'll be on a cpap too. At least (knock on wood) Lina is doing fine, no real surprises there right now.
