went to doctors this morning chest still very wheezy has put me on stronger antibiotic and has increased prednisone back up to 60mg per day plus ventolin my blood pressure is high 153/93. stephen was rushed to hospital emergency last night severe blood loss due to nose bleed and clots told him he would have to wait 6 hours to see doctor so he got frustrated and came home he went with me to doctor this morning she is ordering ct scan and bloodtest as she is worried he might have had another minor stroke he has no strength in his arm as well he has the flu.due to his early onset dementia he has no patience so getting him to doctors is very hard. mikaela had an extreme meltdown last night sent my stress levels through the roof the anti deppressant she is on does not seem to be working last night she really frightened me have not seen her this bad before. thanks for listening to my dramas love and hugs kim l

The fact that you are still hanging in there with all these issues is a testament to your strenght and will power. You just keep fighting and things will work its self out . Here is a big hug from me to you and I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

Sometimes when things are tough, and there seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, the forum can be a place where you can let all your anxieties, fear and anger out, without people criticising or loosing patience with you. Kim, keep venting all your feelings on the forum. It will be detrimental to you physical and mental health if you keep everything inside.

hi Kim!
I am sorry I missed this thread - been away from WHL this weekend. How are you and your family feeling today? Is that second antibiotic working for you? I know it's pretty near impossible with your family situation, but please try to rest and drink fluids as much as possible so you can heal from this infection faster and have more energy to help your family. as always, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

thankyou sandy no 2 lot of antibiotics not helping still very wheezy has made me very exhausted from coughing very sore in the back and stomach strained from the excess coughing sarah is little bit stressed from sexual assault councelling found it very hard mikaela is stressing over everything taking one day at a time at the moment. hugs kim l

Hope you will be feeling better soon, Kim. Counseling is stressful, especially if one doesn't feel like talking about the problem. Every time I have had counseling, I walk out feeling worse than when I went in and totally emotionally exhausted. I hope this is not the case with Sarah. I feel for Mikaela also.

hi kim,

i send you tons of hugs to circle around you and hold you close.....you just keep letting everything out to us, we are always here to listen. You are one of the strongest women that i have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and i continue to hope that good health will find its way into your family.

{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}} If I could somehow fix things with a magic wish or wave of the hand, I would. All I can do is say that I am glad you are sharing your burden and not trying to shoulder it alone. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I really believe something magnificently good is coming up for you in your future. It just has to because you are a good woman and you deserve something happy for a change and I hope you get your happy really soon. Councelling is very hard, but I am glad that you have found a program for Sarah to talk things out. It'll take a lot of time and it won't always be rainbows and sunshine, but it'll also give her more freedom to experience life without feeling like the world is about to jump out and attack her. Abuse is not easy to overcome, but with the help of councelling, she can live a happy well-adjusted life again and have a future that involves normal, healthy adult relationships when she is older. I hope this councelor is a good match for her and that they are able to make lots of progress together.
