  • That I have an angel watching me

    Well everybody knows about the med mix-up, and I am grateful that it didn't kill me. One of the doctor's nurses that I saw said I was lucky that it didn't kill me or put me in a coma, because of my allergy to morphine. The only problem I have now is with my lungs and bronchials, from the stupid med mixup.

    But I am also grateful about another problem that occurred. A doctor of mine prescribed me the TENS unit. I came to find out that people with implanted devices (it said in it's pamphlet) could have some serious adverse effects and should not use the unit. This is after I had been wearing it for almost 5 hours. So I shut it off and my InterStim as well.

    I called Medtronics this morning and they said I pretty much cannot use it. I really have an angel looking over me, and I know it's Deb. I miss her everyday, and though the pain of her loss is still here, I know she is in a better place.

    The reason I'm posting is because lately I've had a lot of bad things happen in my life, and I am sick of dwelling on the negative. I am really upset by the hand that I've been given lately, but that's just life, and you have to let go of the nasty stuff. I still have my family issues, but I have to be hopeful that my uncle will recover from this cancer, my other uncle will from his heart condition, and another family member I found out today is in the hospital, I have to be hopeful for his recovery, as well.

    I think posting here can give us some light, hope, and strength. I know that's what Deb would want. She is with me everyday, and I know she is the reason I didn't die from either mix-up.

    Have a great day everyone,

              Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".
