"Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return." - Emanuel Swedenborg
Though we have never met face to face, the kindness that you all show me daily as you read my blog and leave your comments leaves me breathless. Rick and I were talking this evening, wishing that we could meet you all.
I wanted to share with you that an actual diagnosis was made by the hematologist a few weeks ago,
hypogammaglobulinemia.....say that three times! Ha,ha! Some of you are in the medical field, you know what it means, for the rest of you....basically I have few antibodies, my immune system is shoddy. That is why I have been catching every bug that looked at me for the past year. There is treatment, just waiting for the immune doc and the hematologist to decide what. So that is why, over and over and over, I have had upper and lower respiratory infections, and stomach bugs and anything else that chose to have its way with me.
It could be so much worse, so as always it is time for me to put my big girl panties on and just suck it up. Last night I felt so bad, I chose to have a major pity party and not invite anyone!
But Blackie Bear crashed it and refused to allow me to wallow. As always, he has not left my side,
and has insisted on his fair share of hugs and petting.
I will be fine, this too shall pass. I appreciate all your good thoughts and extreme kindness. But,I
do have a favor to ask tonight.....please say a prayer for Jordan(four year old great-nephew). He is in Children's Hospital, there is a colon issue and he will undergo tests tomorrow, and may be facing surgery. Since I have a new infection I can't go see him, but I talked with him today.
He told me they only let him have green popsicles.....I asked if they were good.....his reply"there is nothing good about this place." I assured him when he came home, his favorite popsicles
Otter Pops, would be waiting on him.
Once again, heartfelt thanks for your concern and kindness. I do not deserve all these blessings.
Good night, Sweet dreams.
