I have made several attempts to update but my iPad or the site was shutting down., so I’d like to try today. There are several things I’d like to share and then more later.
I cutback some of my meds and did the preadmission for surgery tomorrow, I am having a procedure that is a combo of cystoscophy, paralyzing my bladder and kidney stone removal. In the past I had those on separate occasions but it seems it’s titled as Cystoscopy W/ Ureteroscopy W/ Lithotripsy so I hope the fact. when they called with the time, I’m leaving at 4:30 am. With the testing done prior to this, I also learned that there are concerns with early renal failure or perhaps my liver. Then Wednesday I had a troubling sign at my catheter site and tonight a sign of very intense signs of what I would think is infection with my bladder. I wasn’t concerned until I started getting symptoms. I called but didn’t hear back. I tried to call the on call doctor but never got a call back. I guess I will go in the morning and time will tell. I’m a bit uptight about packing up. I’ve also had these pains in my chest when my nurse case manager that calls me from the insurance indicated that my records say my chest pain is due to insufficient blood to heart. I’m hoping these things can improve with time. I’m a bit overwhelmed lately, but some of things are fatigue. I’m too tired tonight to share what I had wanted.
Both Geoff and Jennifer were referred to the dental clinic at LVHN. Jenn was referred by her cardiologist and Geoff at his neurologist appointment. They can now pursue the timing for dental care at the hospital where their other treatment takes place. I am very grateful for this step.
Geoff also was referred to a few other specialties to help in his care and his neurologist is looking into getting him switched from where he goes for his counseling and behavioral health to in network with LVHN.
Well I need to get up in a few hours so I’ll update later
Goodnight friends. Love to you all.
