Chapter 27


I’ve felt so terrible for so long, that even Jerry has been waiting on me hand and feet (ok, maybe just the hands).  I’ve already went through a couple of rounds of MRIs, blood work and all that junk, and now I have the appointments to get the results.  Dr. Paulk looked at the MRI long enough to find out that I’ve got mild to moderate ascites--fancy work for fluid.  I had been so proud that I had lost some weight and a week later I had gained close to 30 lbs.  I knew it was fluid starting again.  Not sure if there is anything to stop it.  The 2 diuretics have been working so well.  If they increase one drug, it causes my kidneys to complain, and if they increase the other one, my potassium goes sky high, which can cause a heart attack.  Just to put icing on the cake, my primary doctor, whom I’ve seen for about 10 years, is leaving and going back to St Louis.  So now I’ll have to find another doctor.  I’m hoping there’s a doctor in this office.  There are several there.  As long as I don’t have to drive to  Tin-buc-to  I’ll be happy.

Sorry to be complaining so much.  Been gone so long I’ve about forgotten how to type. 




  1. sorry to hear you've not been doing well. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    1. Hey, Ann. Thanks for stopping by. I am sorry that it has been so long since I last visited you and Gibbs.
