|Friends that came to help in the yard and the house. Thank you!|
I'm not sure if I ever explained why I decided to go ahead and get them all out. First, all of my doctors agreed with me, except of course the oral surgeon. I could have save, for now, 10 teeth, but the rate that my teeth were chipping and falling apart I would have need constant dental work. Not only expensive, but time consuming, and a nightmare. Also, the medication, reclape, that I needed to take soon for my s osteoporosis, may cause deformaties and other problems if I needed any work in the jaw such as a root canal or an infection. I have them ,the teeth, in a bag, I don't know why, but I haven't even looked at them yet.
As most of you know, I had hip replacement at the beginning of April and a few week later I fell in the backyard and got 3 more fractures in my pelvis. Painful as it was, I healing faster than I thought, I just need to slow down and remember just one wrong step set me back 4 to 6 weeks. Recently, I was having swelling in my feet, nothing unusual and have found weird lumps around my body. I just got out of the hospital and they said I had cellulites, an infection of the tissue, which can be very dangerous. We are still waiting on the punch biopsy I had at the dermatology last week. They may have kept me another day if pipes wouldn't have busted in the wall and no kidding, 4 floor were flooded, all the linens used for the next day, and ceilings were falling apart. They had to move me to the cancer unit in the middle of the night after giving me my 4th IV. At the least the food is pretty go at Athens Regional.
I looked over my medical stuff I have and I have been in the hospital every month since last Oct., except Feb, but twice so far in May. We are selling anything we can and I'm closing my booth. We also decided to cash in my retirement, no pentalty for disabilities, and will try to pay off most of the debt we have right now. Otherwise, I've also decided to use some of the money to increase my quality of life now and not bank on living till I'm 60 or something. This includes fixing our dock that is a danger to anyone that decides to get on it. I have some stuff on ebay, craigslist, and stuff for said in my front yard. I'll be posting some of the things for sale in case you are interested. A few is a white 6 piece wicker set in fair to good condition, useable, but could use some work. Another is a rare baby bumper, quilt and 2 sheet set called Sweet strawberry by pottery barn, and a queen size termperpedic classic mattress with foundation and cover. Going to a vintage store this week to see if this girl will purchase some of my vintage collection, and consigning Evalyn's clothes and shoes. Now that I'm starting to feel somewhat better I hope to finally get my etspy site up and going with my art.
There's so much more to say but I'll wait for another day. Someone told me this week that if I make it through this stuff I will have a huge testimony. Funny, the day after I went to church for the first time in a while, the sermon was on trials and tests. The next morning I fell and got 3 more fractures. Ha Ha Well, I think I will and do. God is the only reason I have made it this far and plan to keep fighting. I pray you do the same where ever you are your journey.
