  • Nephew is going to have the rest of his trach out

    Tomorrow morning my nephew Zach is going to have the rest of his trach out- the doctors took some out back in Last August- now they are going in his esophagus(?) to take the rest out and sew him up. this will be done as day surgery but he will spend the night in the hospital. Hopefully all will go will tomorrow.

                  I stayed with him and grandma till around 8:00 last night and told Zach I will see him tomorrow evening. he said ok. Before I left I called my eldest son, who works a Papa Johns (a pizza place) and I don't think I mentioned his name or anything but when I was finished with the call Zach said I want Pizza! This morning he told grandma that he wanted his Aunt MaeMae (me) so they had to call me at home -- asked me when I was coming over I told him later after he gets out of the hospital. Around 8:30 this morning the doctors told him they could go home so he again insisted Aunt Mae Mae be there with him, so he called me again and said come! (meanwhile I was at work and I told him I can't- that I will come after work- he was starting to get upset- but grandma calmed him down some and I promised that after 6:00 ( as it only takes about 30 minutes from time I leave the office to the time I get to their house) I will be there. I expect at least a few more calls from him today!! Hopefully no more hospital stays for him as we have had our hands full of them since the day he was born almost 5 years ago.

                    Sounds like things went really well. That's great.

                    Diagnosed August 2001

                    Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)


                    Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

                    I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.
