Update

Hello everyone, I am finally back. Have you missed me? I sure have missed all of you. What a week it was!! I have been off the computer since Monday. I changed my internet service to U-Verse, and got totally confused. Accidentally got behind on my bill, and they cut my internet off Monday night. Finally got everything straightened out with them yesterday, and they turned my internet service back on, woo hoo!! I really missed not doing my weekly posts, will catch up this coming week. I will be visiting your blogs tonight, and this weekend, getting caught up. I went for my Doctor appointment on Wednesday, to get the results of my cat scan. We waited an hour, and then the nurse told us, that my Doctor had been called down to the emergency room, for an emergency stroke. So, I had to go back Thursday morning at 11:30. As far as the cat scan results, the good news is: There is no bleeding in my brain, and no new blocked arteries, and no more swelling. Bad news: More brain cells have formed scar tissue, meaning more blood cells died since my stroke. There is soft brain tissue that has formed a hole. It actually looks like a small crater in the moon. I knew I had a hole in the head, lol My Doctor has scheduled me an appointment to have a sleep apnea test. He said he wants to be safe, because if someone has sleep apnea, and has had a stroke, sleep apnea can cause them to have a stroke in their sleep, and die. I go in June for the sleep apnea test. After that, he has scheduled me to go see a sinus doctor. The cat scan showed really bad inflammation, and infection. My doctor said if left untreated, it could cause infection to get into my brain. He said, they will probably have to do some surgery. Please keep me in your thoughts, and prayers. You are all in my prayers, love you all.

At least it wasn't all bad news. Sleep apnea test are so much fun. Try to sleep when you know someone is watching you and you are wired up like a Christmas tree. I hope your test is negative, because those C-pap machines are a real pain. Hoping you have a good weekend.

You're one I respect to have a heart like that of a mother's. I want to wish you a Happy Mother's Day sister because I know you love little ones and truly care for them. God bless and strengthen you.

Peggy said...

Ohhh thank you, thank YOU Lord, thank you Denise...I was so concerned... ok, it's not all bad news... and we'll take the GOOD NEWS! I waited and waited and waited all week...and just kept praying. Thank you for letting us know!

I love you so much... and we'll talk or be in touch soon, I hope. I was thinking you overdid it last weekend and I knew that your head was aching, so that's what I went with... as I prayed.
I was hoping that your sweet heart and head was not overwhelmed but you were having good thoughts of your sweet angel mom... we have so much in common and I know sometimes for me, Mother's Day just hurts my heart,breaks me up briefly and then I think of "angel moms" and moms of the heart like you and me... I pray you have a restful and blessed weekend! Please take care of yourself God's way and allow Him to LOVE on you for me...BIG HUGS,

Love you more... Peggy
