Week #12 Health Update (5/1)

Week #12 Health Update (5/1)
I’ve now made it through 12 weeks. Although I still Pray for the best, the facts are that I continue to slip quite a bit in many areas. The pain was so intense last weekend that the Hospice Doctor doubled my Pain Meds which put me in la-la land some of the time. After enjoying a couple of mostly pain free days, I then had 2 of the worst days ever and the Doc doubled my Pain Meds yet again (which is now 3 times in the last 10 days) and the pain has become manageable. I ask that you keep Margie in your prayers and consider becoming a Friend with her on FaceBook (Margie Tucker) or Email her at brighter31@yahoo.com where you can offer her some words of encouragement and your Prayers of comfort. I know she would truly appreciate it if you could also contribute to her Fund Raising effort (even a small amount and done Anonymously) at http://www.gofundme.com/p3lgec. Now that I can’t even sallow any liquids (like my Protein Shake) I’m getting no nutrients into my body so my weight and energy continue to drop very rapidly. Hospice has explained my situation as having a Bucket with a certain amount of energy or strength left in it. Every time I do any work on the Computer or have a long phone call or visit, I use some of that up and I won’t be able to replace it. I now have to be even more jealous of what I “have” to do so I don’t use up any more of my precious energy than necessary. They also said I shouldn’t go out for any more errands, Movies, Races or even walk up and down the Stairs, etc. They added that very shortly I’ll need to or want to lie down in the Bed most of the time. Even that is a major challenge since almost every darn Bone in my Body is sore to the touch. Jimmy (my ‘Brother’) drove over again from Clearwater for a welcomed visit. Also Ric Underwood, a friend for 28 years drove up all the way from Ft. Lauderdale for a quick visit. We listed my Bass Boat and Jacuzzi For Sale on Craigslist and the Boat actually sold the 2nd day. I’m now using a Walker to get around the House and will be converting to the Wheelchair shortly. Above it all I’m STILL maintaining a positive, expectant and hopeful attitude. “I’m so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind”.
