Rosie has been in and out of the hospital since August. Today is our 25th straight day in the hospital. I have NOT left her side. She had Gastric Bypass in June 2011 and I have complained to doctors, nurses, and hospitals ever since that she was MALNOURISHED AND DEHYDRATED. Finally The University of Tennessee listened to me and started performing tests. She has been critical. All her body organs have been affected. She is now on TPN feedings by i.v. They will be putting in a feeding tube soon. She has lost almost 300 lbs since June 2011. Too much too fast. Barely eats a handful of food daily. Has ascites of her heart, lungs, liver and abdomen. She has a fistula from her sigmoid colon to her abdominal wall. Diverticulitis. Hypoglycemia. Nausea. Diarrhea. Vomiting. Bowel Blockage. Fatty Liver. Had fluid removed from her lungs once already. She is getting antibiotics, fluids, feedings, physical therapy, etc. So weak. She had a good day today. Bad days far out weigh the good ones lately. I hate seeing her lying in bed so ill. She has not been up in almost a month.Rosie will be in the hospital here a few more weeks. Prayers appreciated.
My Uncle Mack passed away and so sad that we were unable to attend his service. Good Man.
Grateful that Cousin Chester was found safe after being abducted by some dog thieves.
Sending all my love and prayers to my cousin Rebecca. I pray that she is able to get off drugs before it is too late. She wrote me and Rosie a few weeks ago. Had not heard from her in almost a year. She wanted us to know she was worried about Rosie and that she loved us. We love her back.
John and I are no longer on speaking terms. Haven’t spoken since May. I moved on. I no longer have a best friend to talk to….
I am grateful for the friendship that I have with Shane and Rick. Don’t know what I’d do without their support and friendship.
A few months ago I placed some personal ads. Had a tremendous amount of responses. Have a young handsome successful lad from Nashville named Will who wants to take me out this weekend. I have too much on my table to date now. I am old enough to be Will’s momma. LOL! Can you say COUGAR? Also been invited to a New Years Eve Party. I could go on and on.
I have not wore makeup in over a month now. I do put on a lippy daily. Get that from Granny Goode.
The food here sucks! I loved the food at Parkwest, UT, and Ft Sanders hospitals but not so much here. Their salad bar sucks. I ate Cheerios for supper today. Gonna have Dad bring me and Rosie a Dinner from the Gondolier on his next visit. Dad doesn’t not visit daily… would be too expensive on gas. Hell we are spending a fortune on inedible hospital food! Nasty Shit!
Really not in a holiday spirit. Prolly won’t even put up a tree. I haven’t even shopped online!
Rosie and I are missing our Babies: Smoki, SnickerDoodle, Punkin, Jazzi, Tater, and Panther. We talk to them via speakerphone daily. Daddy is taking good care of them. Taking them out to eat and for car rides. Weeeeeeeeee.
I may go shopping at Walmart for some food items… like fresh fruit and veggies.. BUT I Hate leaving Rosie.
So stressed out. Pissed at everyone and everything. Wish Rosie would get a break. Poor lil thing has been through hell.
I have been getting hit on by MALE Doctors, Nurses, Techs and even a few ladies. LOL!
I will be 47 on the 19th of December. UGH!
It has been 18 years and 8 days since I was kissed. A LONG TIME! Lately I have been friskier than ever.Ready to have a man in my life again.
I have my eyes on 2 dudes…. just unsure if they are interested in me. Both are really compassionate caring handsome men. Wish they would show some interest!
Looks like Rosie and I will not be traveling to Disney World this spring. Doesn’t look like she will be healthy enough.
I am so glad President Obama won. Grateful that Rosie, Dad, and I got to go vote for him.
TV sucks here at the hospital. Can’t get the food network! That reeks!
Grateful for the CEO of the hospital getting Rosie a private room. At least she and I can sleep now.
Rosie just had her glucose checked and it is normal. Been a difficult few weeks keeping it over 70.
Rosie has lost about 80% of her hair due to her bad health. So I chopped my hair off in support.
I haven’t dyed my hair in 6 weeks… should see all the silver hair shining through. Will get it dyed JET BLUE BLACK soon. Also prolly a trim to refresh up my pixie cut.
Rosie and I hate missing going to the movies. So may films we wanna see. She and I had so many plans for this month and December. They all are down the freaking ass drain now.
Will update here more often.
Please pray for my baby Sissy Rosie. I love her.
