Health Update Thursday(7/9)

So, now it's not just me who is sick-It's my whole family more or less. Some more then others, but it is still effecting us one by one. Why is it when you realize that the whole world seems to be sick, that sick whole world ends up coming into your house and claiming it's next victim(s)?!

I just don't know anymore; I'm sick with Lyme Disease and other unforeseen ailments. My mum has a heart blockage(more information on that later in the post). My sister has issues that are affecting her life now and so does my dad. It's one thing if I am sick, but it's a whole other ball of wax if something is seriously wrong with my family.

This is testing my essence as a person-as a human being. How can there be so much sickness!? Enough of my rant for now. Onto the update:

So far I have had 3 hydrogen peroxide treatments and I haven't seen much of a difference. Even though everyone at the center said that 4 to 6 treatments would have me up and moving, I know better. This is much deeper then they understand, so I'm not setting my hopes to that time line. Even my primary said that it's going to take a minimum of 35 to 40 treatments to see any sort of change. I feel about the same as I did before I got the IVs, maybe a little bit sicker. Were debating on going onto another diet, but more on that when we actually decide.

Now for an update on my mum. She ended up not going to the ER and she wasn't even going to go to our primary if her friends and her family hadn't pushed her. Thank god she did. She was convinced it was just menopause, but apparently the doctor did a few tests and realized she had a blockage in her heart. When our primary makes a big deal about something and sends you on to a specialist, then you know something is wrong.

She went to see the specialist yesterday. Apparently, he ordered some more tests, but he said that it wasn't as serious as we had thought, but it is still a heart problem. Despite all that, I'm still scared to death...

It's a terrible thing when you don't want to say goodnight to your mum because you don't know if your going to see her in the morning. If something happens to her, I don't think I'll be strong enough to hold myself together.

I just wanted to thank all of you who are keeping us in your prayers and thoughts. It means the world to me and I just hope I will be able to repay the favor one day(not that I wish anyone to be sick!).

I'm so sorry that you're family is going through this rough time.

I'm glad your mother now knows what is wrong though and I hope everything works out for the best.

Stay strong love. ::hugs::
