so much for saving

So I had a few people ask me to keep everyone posted on my savings is going. Actually it is going good and I thank God for that.

Friday I had to take one of the cats to the vet. That made us $160 lighter. I am just glad that we had the money in our checking account. I guess really watching our spending helped there.

Sunday I went down. I was having so much pain. I swear that I felt like I was having a toddler clawing it's way out of my body.

We get to the e.r. Our poor nurse had such hard time just finding a vein. I guess that hole no fluids and puking up all the fluids that went in did not help much.

Once they got the iv started and got some pain meds injected into me I felt better. I had a ct scan and an ultra sound done.

The conclusion is I have a mass growing on my  uterus that is leaking. My right ovary is 10 cm. It is only suppose to 2 cm.

I was admitted to the hospital Sunday night and I got released Monday night.

I need surgery to remove everything, but I have no insurance. I guess we are the working poor.

I was sent home with some massive pain killer's, two forms of estrogen and some stuff to stop me from vomiting.

Rusty took yesterday and today off. So today we had to go get all of my meds. Thank God I had some money stashed. Those set us back another $122.

So here I sit trying to not be in pain and trying to figure out what my next step is. I filled out all of the paper work to get state aid, but I will not know about for another week.

I need to find a doctor that will accept state aid, and then try to get all of this useless stuff taken out.

On a lighter note, I did tell everyone that while I am in there they can take part of my liver because I can grow another one. I also wanted them to check and see if my is made of stone.

Today while we were out getting my prescription's fill Rusty was such a big help to me. He would walk around to my side of the truck and help me get out. I said you know we can act like a little old couple. You will be walking real slow just trying to hold me up. While I walk all hunched over. Yep that was us today.

I love Rusty. He is so good to me. Rusty sat with me for two day's. He helped me shower, helped me ... well he helped with everything.

I am now on very restricted duty. There will be no heavy lifting for me. No more driving for a while, and no more of not taking care of myself.

My dog, Butter is doing better. I swear  I was going to have to get him something if I did not come soon. He did not eat for two day's and all he did was sit at the door and cry. Now I am home and he finally ate something, but he also will not leave my side and is now sticking even closer to me.

Tonight one of the ladies from the church is bring us some dinner. I am so thankful for that. I don't wait, I know that I do not have the energy to cook and I know Rusty is worn out as well.

Well one of my pain pills is kicking in, so I better go lay down before I fall down.

Kelli I had no idea you were going through that kind of pain.  I'm glad they found the problem, and I hope the pain meds and other meds work for you until you can get the state insurance and have surgery.  Please take care, and I wish there was something tangible I could do for you.

I just read this entry. You have got to get state aid.  Because it sounds like surgery is imperative.  I will go home and go over to your new blog to see what has been happening.  So sorry.  Gerry
