And the beat goes on.....

Dawn should be able to come home soon.  I will stay 'till Tuesday.  Dawn had a bad ITU that started to enter her kidneys.  Today her temp was normal and her blood pressure is getting back up to where it belongs. Like me, she has high blood pressure.  Her meds control it pretty much but her pressure has never been so low.  And they had a trying time getting it to come back up.  They also did a spinal tap and the headache she had been having with the high fevers became very, very painful.  She just cried all day yesterday.  The pain killed.  Better today.  The doctor is still going to keep an eye on that to be sure it isn't a leak or whatever that is sometimes a complication with a lumbar puncture.  If it is....she will have to get another procedure where they take blood from your arm and inject it in your spine..  Just yuk.  And I am embarrassed that I don't know the name of the procedure.  That's kind of my thing.  But I am tired.

On the plus side......Meadow woke up a real human being today.  Yay!  Boys were better too.  So...I am going to rest here.  I am having back spasms and my throat is sore.  I better not be sick!!!!!

Oh.  And though I don't remember alot, I do remember the name of my first lipstick.  How weird is that?  I was in 6th grade and that was back in the Go-Go boots era.  The lipstick was a super frosty whitish-pink called.....BEAT PINK!  Oh come on.  Give me a Woo=Hoo here.  Me remembering anything is quite an achievement for me.

Let me just add this to those of you who want to go to that Island with me....
I do not want to go to South Padre Island.  Been there.  Done that and it was cold and stupid and there's only 3 streets and dead fish and shit on the shore.
I don't want an Island where the Jelly Fish sting you and someone has to pee on you to make it stop hurting not that I mind being peed on.   Coffey, if you are reading....... shut up!  I don't want to hear about showers, golden or otherwise!
I want pristine white beaches, those cabanas with big beds and the hunks that bring you drinks....

Woo hoo!

I think you meant UTI and got the letters backward. Since you were talking about kidneys, I'm just assuming... and you know what that means.

Sounds like things are going much better. I hope it stays that way.

Glad to hear things are on the up Middle Child, I'm so sorry to hear about the pain, it's actually terrifying how nasty the pain sounds like Dawn was having to go through, poor her.

Am I too olden to go to THAT kind of island ? If not, I've got my bag packed and am sitting in my porch swing, waiting for you to come pick me up.

Wow... I hope the ITUs/UTIs are all better, and that you survive if you go to South Padre Island!

The medical people made Dawn's life miserable, but she is surviving. This is good — at least the surviving part is good. And Meadow is being human and humane. Also good.

But you're not in great shape. NOT so good.

Here's hoping that everyone gets around to healthy body and healthy mind.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

Back again to say thanks for stopping by.
I did, indeed, break my new shoes in...walked a couple times on the track at the park, wearing them. Really comfy.
I've been told they have scooters to rent there...might just grab one of those...:))
Take care, love.
