Sometimes life is just sad.

I have not been on due to a lot happening in my life right now and trying to adjust to it all. I think i have a handle on everything now, at least i hope i do.

I’m sorry to say that my mom lost her long battle with a diabetic ulcer ( is an open sore or wound that occurs in approximately 15% of people with diabetes and is commonly located on the bottom of the foot. ( My mom’s was on the top of her foot ) of those ulcers, 6% will be hospitalized due to infection or other ulcer-related complication. ) We meaning my mom and i have battled this for about 2 years or so. She started with her heart problem and her legs would swell and then she would get a big blister when the leg would go down. When the blister would break it would leave a creater in her leg.¬† I have healed many of these for her. When she went for her heart surgery¬† she had a small one on top of her foot, we just could not hold surgery off any longer. during surgery they opened the bandages on her foot well after that the sore started growing and we battled a few bouts of pseudomonas bacteria, givin antibiotics but did not help which we did not know. Then just reciently i noticed some not so good changes in my moms foot. I did some research and found that if you mix pseudomonas and mersa you get a flesh eating disease. We had some blood work done, was waiting for the results and mom fell during the night. She was ok but later that day she spiked a temp. givin medicine for that. Then she fell again and this time when she did she turned her foot and broke all toes. That just gave the infection just enough to do what it does best , it spread so fast that her fott did not even look like a foot. She went to the hospital right after that fall and the next day she was operated on. They amputated her left leg above the knee. Amputation ( is the removal of a limb by truma, medical illness, or surgery. As a surgical measure, it is used to control pain or a disease process in the affected limb. ) The doctor did above the knee, due to wanting to get all the infection and that my mom with not being able to see and also having tremors she will not walk. Mom is home now is good spirits and doing very well, healing Great.

We are trying to get used to visiting nurses coming in , pt and ot once a week. I also have to help my mom more and trying to get all the right equipment in so mom can live a semi-normal life.

So i think i’m back to blogging and thank you all for your patience in me not blogging so much.

Just be greatful for all you have, life is so precious

I am forever blessed to have my mom in my life.

Keep coming back i will have new content for you soon.

Depressed over stupid stuff

I had not been writing due to a bunch of stuff hitting me at one time. The furniture i had ordered came way to early due to the store closing and if i didn’t take my stuff now, well i would have nothing, not even the money back! Ouch. Now the problem with that i did not have my new living room set up yet, it was still my old bed room. Remember: I thought i still had lots of time yet, as they were holding the stuff for me. The room that i was going to use as my dressing room was not done either. To make a long story short i had to get two rooms done and ready, so i could get my stuff. Glad to say the living room is done and furniture is in looks great and we are enjoying. My dressing room is also done and it looks great also, i guess as good as a dressing room will look.

So here”s the kicker, my mom was so happy i got everything done, put her lift chair in the new living room. First night of her sitting and watching tv, she says to me i don’t like it. My feelings were so hurt, but i do not say anything, just sorry. She has not said nothing sense, and is still watching tv with me there, but who knows what she is thinking. I just thought, well no i didn’t think about her not liking it. I don’t think it is the room she don’t like, i think it is she has to walk a little to get there and it is something new. My mom don’t like change, I’m better now due to a few friends have seen the room and raved over it. As soon as my non techy self can figure out again on how to send a picture to my email, ( i swear it changes every day on how to do that) I will post a picture…..lol.

May you all feel Blessed today!!!
