  • surgery and class scheduled same day

    YIKES!! I have the termination trial on May 14th, have to go with wires hanging out.. Then on the 16th is my implant day. I also have to start my foster parent classes on the 16th. It is really going to be a very rough week for me all the way around.
    The emotional turmoil we will endure with the trial, next thinking about having the surgery 2 days later, and going to foster care orientation class for 2 and 1/2 hours that evening. I called my uro's office to put a request in to have my stim done first thing in the am so we can do our class the same evening. She said she will ask for me to go first, so I can come home and sleep a few hours.

    Her I am scurrying around, trying to make do with all I have to do in that week and make it work out, and Christina, couldn't take time out to even set forth some effort to accomplish one thing. oh well I guess I just have the mind set to make all things possible..

    going to take a nap.. my head is going a million miles a minute.. taking bets Jake wakes up the second I dose off.. Whos in?

      Cindy! Are you nuts!?! Somehow I doubt that your uro would think it's a good idea to have surgery and then later on that same day go to a 2 1/2 hour class. I know you have to do both but is there anyway you can move one of them to a different day. You're going to end up killing yourself! Goodluck though if you actually do all of this in one week, you're amazing as always

      I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
      1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
      2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
      I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

      I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

                I have got to make this all work out . The next class is not for another 90 days after this one ends . It is a 7 week class, every Wednesday from 6 to 9. My mom thinks I am trying to do this all in one day. I can do it, I know I can. It might kick my butt for a few days after, butt I can do it. My mom said I will be their only student laying down
                I called Cathy and told her she would be watching Jake for 7 Wednesdays in a row. She said what are you going to do go to the hospital, and then go to that class yup thats my plan and I am sticking to it

                I think I can, I think I can, I think I can :woohoo:
