What happened to COMMON SENSE?

Mom update: She talked to her PCP and asked about the change in meds since she was last in and he said............."You might be on to something there" One of the meds she was switched to, get this, the side affects are NAUSEA, VOMTING and BELLY PAIN (this is why she had to call 911). Mom says - "Not me, my daughter. She's a better diagnostician than I am". 
I have been saying since day 1 - why haven't they looked at your meds? these symptoms started 24 hours after they switched your meds. and released you from the hospital and you were in a steady decline since.

So, they will switch her back to the previous medication which was working fine and see if her symptoms go away.

Don't you have to have some common sense to be a Doctor?

They have done thousands of dollars in tests & procedures and blood work which all could have been avoided if they looked at the med changes and side affects when she was admitted Monday night.
 They will keep her at least through tomorrow, possibly Sunday, depending on if this solves the problem.

Round Two

Mom is back in the hospital...could be gall bladder related. She called me at 11PM last night and I had to go over and stay with my Grandmother again. Working on 3 1/2 hours sleep, overwhelmed and emotional at the moment. Once again my life is turned upside down. Still trying to roll with the punches though and not have a meltdown.

This is me and my son last night at my BFF's for some pre-game fare. Although he drives me absolutely bonkers at times - I love my boy.

Here's another pick from my 30th high school reunion:

We were showing off our boots - goofballs. It was a lot of fun though.

Here's hoping my Mom comes hope quickly and feels much better (she hasn't felt right since she got out of the hospital last week), my kid stays out of jail and I don't lose my mind!

I feel Good!

After a 10 year hiatus from the dating world. Dah Dah Dah..........I have a boyfriend. (Yes, you read that right - 10 years, no nuthin).

I've dropped 41 lbs since June 23rd;
 August 2010 (I was actually heavier than this pic when I started in June)
October 2012
November 23, 2012

I'm about halfway there.                                                                                               Yes, halfway.
It works.
I feel healthier.
I feel a little sexy and even a little pretty!

My lovely son knocked up his psychotic on again/off again girlfriend, and this girl is certifiable. She should be committed to a mental hospital. So yea, I'm going to be a grandmother. I'm not at all happy about it. (Please hold the congrats) The best thing for this child would be to give it up for adoption. Neither one of them can take care of themselves, they are toxic together and that innocent babe deserves a fighting chance. I'm not sure how it will all unfold. I'm trying to keep my mouth shut and not get involved at all. I don't want to meet this child and then have it ripped from me.

Letting it go.

My Mom had another hospital stay - a week, for congestive heart failure again. She's back home now and I'm having my own issues with her.

Letting it go.

I guess the biggest change for me is that I have learned to let go and placed those I love in their own care and God's hands. It's like I've woken up from a prolonged coma. I am finally living my life for me and letting others take responsibility for their own lives. It isn't always easy, but that is what has enabled me to lose the weight.

Grabbing on to that and running with it!

I'm learning to be a little selfish instead of taking care of everyone around me and neglecting myself.  I deserve to be happy and treated like a princess and have someone care about me and take care of me for a change. It's true that when you believe you deserve good things in your life and you are sending that mojo out - that is what will come in to your life.

I am living my life in the present, happy for the first time in a very long time and great things are coming into my life.

God does it feel wonderful!!

Now, aren't you glad you stopped by?
