Subject: BS: kat needs a little mojo, please
From: katlaughing

it's hard to type as my rt hand is unusable due to severe inflamation of tendons. it looks likje it's been burnt.

on top of that too low blood pressure for months has caused several problems which are being addressed. all this has left me terribly weak and depressed. i know it will get better, but feel very tired of it all,including physically.

i know there are others in life or death situations, buut if you cld spare me a bit of help, i'd appreciate it.

thanks,

kat

Well just today I told my friend Paula Wulf (on Facebook) about your Columbine song, and sent her the lyrics.

So I'm thinking about you. Actually I think about a lot, you every time I do dishes and rub my hand across a plate. I think, My Friend katlaughing taught me how to do that. So that is pretty much every day.

Lots of love on its way from this scruffy old fart.

my dear friends thank you so much!( even you, garg, the tomatoes have been wonderful this yr!)

dl a ton of pain if i don't take meds. ordered off of all topical treatments.blood lab two days running...they think it is an inflamation worsened by tiger balm. the top two hand orthos in the region are very concerned, but have been honest in as positive way as possible. i am in good hands, they are also checking for types of arthritis and may want to fuse my left pinkie. it's the right hand which is in in trouble right now, though.

i feel exhausted, but the sleep will help along with your graciuos aid, thanks, again.

From: Megan L

This morning the island was covered in fog, not our usual soft hazy mist that does not hide but softens the colour a world in soft focus, but dark forbidding fog. The kind that has the Hamnavoe sounding her horn all the way from Stromness to Scrabster like Peter Brown tapping his way round Kirkwall with his long white cane.

I sat despondently drinking my morning cup of tea gazing out at a view now only in my memory. However as I sipped the warming brew the fog was obviously afraid of its warmth and slipped back to the house across the road. Another sip and it slunk of down the path towards the main road snatching at the bushes trying to hold onto the blades of grass but the bushes quivered their branches shrugging it of. The sharp blades of grass stabbing into it draining it moisture to bedeck themselves in the glittering diamonds of dew.

As the level of my tea sank in the cup the fog slowly retreated from the town the sparrows and starlings laughing at its cowardice from the safety of the fence while the gulls and crows circled daring it to return with loud mocking caws.

May the warmth generated in this thread melt away the fog of ill health returning you to sparkling health.

Yo Folks!!!!

Just got a call from kat at the hospital. The infectionn in her fingers is staph and it is beyond the antibiotic stage. They are going to cut them open and clean/scrape them out.   I'm sure additional antibiotics will come into play in the process but taking this step is big.....and absolutely critical/necessary/lifesaving. I am not being dramatic here.   

How serious do hospitals and Docs take this? If I go into a crowded ER and say, "I'm running a fever and I have an artificial mitral valve," I move past bleeding old ladies to the head of the line.

As you all know kat has had heart problems and surgeries and staph infections anywhere in your body tend to go pretty quickly to the heart and destroy valves. One can very easily find themselves in a very narrow window here so let's all get real damn serious with whatever mojo you send out....Do it NOW!

Kat and I came here at about the same time over 14 years ago and we've been Buds ever since. She's got everything I can send. Join me.........Can't type anymore.....Do it..............

Had a voice mail from kat and she sounds pretty rough but is also encouraged with what all is happening with her treatment there. Also asked me to tell you all that she's not much up to taking calls yet, so let's give it a few a few days before we do that. I'll keep you posted as to when she'll be feeling more up to it.....Thanks.

Brief Update



Kat is in a bit of a holding pattern on the antibiotics of course, but waiting on the procedure. She is on Coumadin/Warfarin blood thinner because of her prior heart surgery and her INR which measures that "thin/thick" blood is still too high (bloods too thin) for safe surgery.

Let me explain something just for reference. As we have health problems they tend to combine up and throw some curves our way. Warfarin does this big time. I can't have any type of surgery without getting off the Coumadin and when I am off and my blood is thick (normal) I am in great danger of having a blood clot which can be either fatal, lead to a stroke, or both. But if they can't stop the surgical bleeding.........not too good either is it? So you wind up in life threatening box even for the most minor of procedures. Plus, if you have other issues the box gets smaller and smaller.

So right now kat is waiting while they monitor her INR and prepare her for getting things done and on the way to healing. Sorry to bore y'all with details but it helps in understanding why more isn't happening right now. She is happy to know of the great response here of course and I thank you as well.

BETTER UPDATE!

Kat is post procedure and it all went well. She liked the Docs and they seemed to give her a lot of confidence, always important. Even had a few laughs wi them I guess. Generally my sense of humor is so bizarre that they just stare at me.............

Anyway, she will be in the hospital for a few days doing various post-op things before she can go home. That's pretty usual of course and I'm sure they want to keep a close eye on things for the first few days.   She sounded tired and post-oppy but also much better and obviously more relieved.

She thanks you all profusely. Like I said, she feels better and talked up a storm......til she wore out in about 45 seconds.....LOL....

Just talked to Roger for awhile and kat is still pretty woozy and all but they are draining the sight which hopefully, with the antibiotics, will get this cleared up and get the girl back on the road to some better health. Roger was as frustrated with the medicos as we all tend to be sometimes and justifiably so. This problem should have been caught earlier but it wasn't. There are several old jokes about Docs that can apply (some of them think MD means Major Deity) but it can be trying as we all know at times.

Looks like kat is on the mending side of things now and hopefully by tomorrw or Monday might be feeling better again!!!

Talked to kat this morning and said she had a rough night.....O2 saturation too low. Feeling a bit better when she talked to me but now realizes this is going to be a long trip back. She figures to be without use of her one arm/hand for at least a few weeks and possibly more. Also from the sound of things she will be in the hospital for maybe another week(?).....really don't know but that seems likely.
So she's going to take some pretty reggular and strong mojo. Infections like this are so bad. Some of the staph infections going around these days are treated for long periods before they are gone. They interfere with your blood doing the job it does and equally can and do affect all other systems and organs.

When I talked to her briefly a few minutes ago, she was getting it debrided and that is probably going to be a daily or twice daily happening for awhile. I called just now to get the name of the hospital so those wanting to send a note or a card, here ya' go.....Sorry, I didn't get a room number but it will get there without it.

When we say "it couldn't happen to a nicer person", we usually say it sarcastically regarding someone we dislike.

At least it's looking like light at the end of the tunnel. Major mojo still coming for the rest of the trip through.

Had a brief call from kat last night and her voice sounded much stronger to the point that I think she is definitely better! Going to take some time both now in the hospital and later at home but with no setbacks (and I'll send some mojo for that!) she's past the worst of it.

I will be in and out of here a bit differently for a few days as I have a couple of medical issues that I need to get taken care of.....a few appointments and a couple of pints.....but I imagine that kat or Roger may well post something themselves.   Many thanks as always.

Kat was figuring on a bit more time plus a bit more for Roger to get ready for all this too, but.......She's home!

Kat, I am sending you my best mojo to BOTH you and Roger. Hopefully there might be some home health follow up(?) or something and some ways to help out.   All I have is that and the wish I lived closer. I think a lot of us on this thread feel that way too.

Remember a dozen years back when we laughed about forming a real village? There were several threads along those lines and all, no matter how funny, sure as hell had a grain or two of truth at their core. Think I'll go find one later.

That is a gorgeous and restful video Jeri linked to.

I'm sure the cats and dogs will be happy to have you back and you might find some quality cuddles from the troops once you're home, and I think there is great therapeutic value in that. Rog not having to make so many trips for hospital stuff has to be a relief, as does the care by someone who knows you and can better anticipate requests. I think that though you're home earlier than you expected you'll relax and heal a lot faster.

Spring is just around the corner - enjoy the longer days and get some sunshine if you can. And listen to good music - you must have quite a few Mudcat CDs there to enjoy. It'll all add up to good health sooner than you think.

I remember once on a tour of our local croft museum the man was showing us carding and weaving, at one point he cut a length of the spun yarn and handed it round everyone pulled and picked at it in their curiosity till it fell apart. One person pointed out how fragile the strand of yarn was, how easily it was pulled apart and unravelled.

The auld lad guiding us round nodded acknowledgement of what had been said. He then pointed out that when that frail thread was woven together with all the other frail threads it made a fine blanket strong enough that we could toss someone up in the air and safely catch them. That is the wonder of Mudcat individually we may be weak but when we come together to become the Mudcat blanket the strength and warmth we generate spreads like sunshine round the world.

Kat said she'd gottten a good night's sleep for a change and they were doing okay with home health care and that Roger was helping with the dressing change as well. All in all much better sounding today. She may not be posting yet for awhile but she does read and told me she had some rest and relief feeling the good vibes from here, thinking of all of you......

Being on the recipient end gives you a warmth in knowing others care. Outside of that I find it hard to explain! Thing is, that knowledge is very important and makes it better.

seriouly, it took almost two years to clear up ver painful, debilitating tendonitis in my hands,losing my ability to drive...all due to using both. i will sit, as you say, BUT not use a walker, at least.

I talked it over with the PT guy who evaluated me, yesterday. we now have a ramp to the front door of which he approved and all of the railings and grab bars Rog put up, so we're pretty good. He will be out twice per week. This is something I have wanted for a couple of years...here at home, so I am ecstatic. Not bad positive input for my 60th, eh?

Well folks, saw the surgeon today and he looked proud enough to burst his buttons. He was really please at how well my hand looks, so was I, eight weeks later to the day on the 28th. Thanks too ALL of you who helped along the way, esp. our Spawdarling. I don't know how many cracked up phone calls he answered from me! And passed on the info with gracious explanation and firm good humour.:-)

Unfortunately the other meds docs used other things which have brought on some awful side effects, namely the painkiller and caused all manner of blood dignoses. i'm even more topsy-turvy, having fallen about ten times ? since surgery. The last one was a doozy last Thursday night. Today's doc wouldn't let me untill we got an xray of my LEFT leg, (the whole arm is a deep purple blaze bruise.) UNLESS I could stand on it, which I could show him, which I did, plus my PT has proof of his working with me standing. So it ain't broke and he let me go saying he hoped he never sees me, again, and that I have a happy,long life. Nice doc!! I see my reg. doc tomorrow and hope to track down the culprit which is causing it.

On top of that, my oldest daughter, in CT, with twin 14 yr olds, is being evicted by a bitch, crooked of a HUD (though she says it is a private company now, property manager, AFTER telling her she's on of their best tenant, but HUD regs won't allow to give ref in her situation, does not negotiate, and did all of this one one week before the end of school where the boys have been since kindergarten, know all the kids, and have all their friends. She's is ready to tell the apt. bldg goodbye, the mananger to FU and make sure they finish this last year at this school. I am pround of her.

Thanks for asking and for listening....luvyakat

So . . . will you be able to come off some of the pain meds that are causing side effects like falling down?

I wonder if the property manager has a history of evicting tenants that have teenagers (or teenage boys). I hope your daughter finds a better place to live.

And keep getting better!

Less is more - when they figure out whatever is over-medicating you it will be removed and things will settle into normalcy.

This is a hard one, darlin'gnu. Since I don't remember what I've already said, I'll have do some research, and it's just hard. I promise I will.

For now, they think I am having a major fibro flare-up which hurts like hell unless I keep taking the pain-killer. I also have to keep my feet and legs up about 2-3 hours in the AM and PM to keep reducing the aedema. They have no idea why that was so bad, but Rog and I think it has to do with new meds. (You folks don't really want to hear all of this, do you? It's so negative!) The rest of the day may phone calls, try to clean a bit, play with Morgan when he is over, and help Rog with all the chores and ride along to do errands. I bought two boxes of thank you cards which some of you will receive,IF, i ever get to them.

I've had a few more falls, the last hit everything in both sides so I look like a beat up hockey player or summat.:-)As far as the surgeon goes, he hopes to never see me, again, as that would indicate his success rate continues, I have to say agree. Actually THAT hand is doing better than any other part of me.

I am learning i have to be patient. Slowly weaning off the pain-killer, but have to replace it. it's the standard for fibro but my doc and I will find something else. I am getting good sleep. Yea!!!

Good thin my Rog is patient.With the extreme stress piled on at work and me, he has almost called it quits, as have I. Morgan's visits, my watching my sharp tongue and being more patient, plus Rog been trying, too, have helped and it seems as though we've turned a page.

As for the rest of my day: up at 6am, start hand/sink bath about 730pm and head to bed about 9p. It being school with lots of kids and barking dogs, I don't have time for much other rest.

I am hoping to type well enough, soon, to memorialize a treatise with song my grandmother, maternal, wrote when she was a member of the CTU. My she was fiery! That's it for now. i hope i have progressred with more fun to share, such as ythe time Rog opened the bathroom door to find me on my knees in front of the "twah-let". Were we inter-acting? in what way???!!! Just wait..I can see the humour now.

SRS, you are always so thorough and accommodating, sometimes it leaves me in tears. thanks so much that is very close.

also this was M's last day of school and he didn't come over. they've decided it's okay for to him to tryout being a latch-key kid. i know he needs this, but a mix with me in there would be nice. i feel as if i've lost him forever. thanks for spending the last nine yrs with him watching him grow.

Here's one a tiny bit lighter (CC66FF). Morgan has been such an important character for all of us - is he close enough to your house that he can walk over if he wants to or needs to? I hope, for the well-being of all, that that charming young man stays a viable part of the household!

Edgar Lee Masters (1868–1950). Spoon River Anthology. 1916.

207. Lucinda Matlock

I WENT to the dances at Chandlerville,        
And played snap-out at Winchester.        
One time we changed partners,        
Driving home in the moonlight of middle June,        
And then I found Davis.                 5
We were married and lived together for seventy years,        
Enjoying, working, raising the twelve children,        
Eight of whom we lost        
Ere I had reached the age of sixty.        
I spun, I wove, I kept the house, I nursed the sick,         10
I made the garden, and for holiday        
Rambled over the fields where sang the larks,        
And by Spoon River gathering many a shell,        
And many a flower and medicinal weed—        
Shouting to the wooded hills, singing to the green valleys.         15
At ninety-six I had lived enough, that is all,        
And passed to a sweet repose.
        
What is this I hear of sorrow and weariness,        
Anger, discontent and drooping hopes?        
Degenerate sons and daughters,         20
Life is too strong for you—        
It takes life to love Life.
        


Sincerely,
Gargoyles

glad they are watching

Our Dearest Friend, Kat,
                                     Want to be with you in person, to hug you & speak words of comfort & encouragement instead of writing them. You have been so kind to us in so many ways; it's our turn to be kind to you, but how, other than by sending our Love & holding you in our thoughts? We wish there was something more practical we could do that would make life easier & more comfortable for you.
          With Love,
                         Nigel & Ann.
                         xxxxxxxxxx

Kat--Roger too,

The warmth of the year will be with us in force very soon. The light of the longer days should mend depressions with well chosen medications as well. Pardon my not being in better touch, friend, but I have this computer now to help me do that. I'll call soon too.

Love,

May I just say that I want you better and not ramble on like some kind of babbling jackass? I keep hoping things get a whole lot better but sometimes I guess it is just a long slog. You're making some good sounds here and I'll get behind that! OTOH, if I'm making sounds, behind is not the place to be.

Seriously katmyluv, I'm here, I care, and I'm pissed it isn't happening faster for either of us. I've come to see that not everything goes away quite so quickly as I like. Much Love..........

I love you, Peaches, from the bottom of my heart.

There is so much strength in one's words, thoughts, etc. I am here to finally post more positive words. Today has been hot,breezy, too bright, but still nice. I went for my first "Sunday" drive in about three months and slept a most relaxed nap in ages, missed the whole ride!

the other wonderful that happened was after i had an early supper. i felt like doing some mindfull movements, so i did 3/4ths of what the PT taught me. The others I will finish up with in bed (no, NOT that!). THEN, I did my whole qi gong set! this energy has to come, partly, from all of you. Thank you!

as to colours, i like what Janie said and a vision has come to me...i am dancing a joyous celebration. as i do, i pass through draperies which seem suspended freely from air. they are beautiful light-to-dark amethyst, weightless and wafting in a slight, gently scented breeze from the East. passing through them, i see i am clothed in the same material. i continue to dance in joy. luvyakat
