Hello! How are you all? I had my first settlement of the year Monday and the doctors Wednesday, tests on Thursday and just a crazy day today ....but mental crazy not physical..I’m following docs orders...
So anyway..here’s how things are playing out...not horribly terrible but could really be better but Im not in any way, shape or form complaining because I have many many blessings and I count and acknowledge them every day and give Thanks! God is Good!!But I have been feeling yucky!! I started getting sick last week and have had no voice for over a week which has lead to a whole new slew of tests. Blood work,chest xrays, ultrasound of the soft tissue of my throat and neck. On January 20, I had an MRI( Im pretty sure I already wrote about this in my last blog, of my c spine with not good results at all.  

    On that MRI the radiologist noticed scattered enlarged lymph nodes, most subcentimeter but also 2 prominent in size including one that is 1 centimeter in size and the other is 1.2 centimeters. They are effecting my swallowing and voice and there is a lot of pain..it feels  like i have strep throat. They won’t start me on any antibiotic until all test results are in. So now I am on 2 more meds...one to soothe the burning sensation in my throat when i swallow and one pill for the coughing. They both work really well but the liquid stuff knocks me out! Thank God for health insurance...the co pays alone are killing us..I feel so bad because we need so many other things right now but we gotta do what we gotta do to get better...right? Im really worried about all the pain..its bad and its going to be here for a while. I can handle it but i can’t help talking abour it and I don’t want people to walk the other way when Im coming.LOL Im never winey or down..i try to put as much lite and laughter in it as I can. I went to the doc Wednesday had all my tests taken yesterday so hoping for my results Monday. Im praying its just something that needs antibiotics or that will go away on its own...obviously!
So I went right from docs orders out of the hospital being on a strict rest schedule to one now from my family doc at least until my follow up. I would say I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired but I’ve been really getting a rest that i think Ive needed for a  long time. My body has definitely telling me to slow down for a long time.

    So, I had my forst settlement of the year on Monday. I hope things turn around for me..I know some people are booming god Bless them...I need to get better so ii can work harder enjoy myself more. And Im going right into an extremely busy year /year and a half coming up so I need to get my health in order so i can enjoy it all! Well that’s me in a nutshell, guess its better than a nut house...lol Hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend! Love ya’s!   heartheartheart
