I have had it!
Enough is enough.
I really can’t deal with any more than we currently have in our laps.
GIVE US A BREAK!!
OK, here’s the run down.
Dharma has been referred to ENT after her regular minor nose bleeds turned into the nose bleed from hell last weekend when she actually had blood coming out of her eyes. We are just waiting on a date.
Murron is still under the Plastics department who are keeping an eye on her thumb from a plastics point of view but she is now under the Physiotherapy department because the thumb keeps locking on her. She has a brace she wears at night time and keeps it with her during the days in case she gets any pain or locking during the day.
Today we found out she probably has a condition called Labyrinthitis which is making her very dizzy and can take months to clear up.
Marjorie has a very painful right foot at the moment and it looks like she has a major infection in and around one of her metatarsals. She is due to go into the Royal Orthopedic Hospital in Stanmore on March 2nd to have a guided ultrasound drainage of the area. Depending on what is found she could be going back in for surgery to clean the area out thoroughly.
She is also still under the Orthopods at Bedford who are keeping an eye on her hip until she stops growing.
Ian has Psoritic Arthritis and is constantly in pain. He has countless pills to take on a daily basis and uses a tens machine but is still in pain. He had an appoinment with an orthpedic surgeon yesterday and it has been decided he needs to have quite a major surgery on his left shoulder to try and reduce some of his pain levels.
I myself have achilles tendonitis and posterior heel spurs. I have an appoinment with the Orthotics department tomorrow to get fitted with some sort of brace. This is to be worn for 3 – 6 months to try and aid the tendonitis but there could be the need for surgery later in the year if the brace doesn’t work.
I have no idea what form this brace will take and how it will affect my work considering i’m on my feet for 12 hours a day.
Marjorie’s problem is causing us the most problems at the moment because it means trips in and out of London.
At the very least we have two more trips but if she has to have the full on surgery it will mean a trip in for a pre assessment, a trip in for the surgery, at least 1 but probably more follow ups and all of this is draining us of money we simply don’t have…. well we, do but it’s being taken from bill pots and money being saved for Xmas.
With all this going on we forgot to renew the tax disc on my car at the end of January. Thankfully I haven’t been collared for it as we got a stern reminder in the post and paid it online.
That’s it. I really cannot take any more medical issues this year.
