Been a busy few days so let me try to break it down. Good and bad in the health department. First the good….
He’s doing better thank goodness. He was on two medications to keep his blood pressure regulated but they’ve got him off both and he’s maintaining it on his own. His kidneys are working and there was some concern because one looked bruised but the renal doctor said she doesn’t expect any long-term issues. They were also worried about his liver but it seems to be doing better as well. He’s being brought out of sedation and is partially conscious right now and the fact he’s waking up and responsive is good news too. The plan is to take him off the respirator tomorrow and have him breathing on his own. It’s going to be awhile before he’s out of the hospital – he’s got a long road of recovery – but right now, things are looking positive. Just wonderful news that he’s improving.
On the other hand….
Today is the second day of blistering migraines. Yesterday I took an Imitrex and laid down. The pain was better so I got up to run to the store. That was a mistake. The migraine hadn’t truly broken, just receded, so I got really lightheaded, sick to my stomach and just miserable again and had to drive home like that. So I laid back down and slept for a few more hours until Love got home.
This morning, I woke up with my neck just seized up and BAM another migraine. Serious nausea and pain and just misery. Took another Imitrex and laid back down again. Love left to go visit his Dad and family at the hospital and I was supposed to go with but just couldn’t for the second day in a row. After laying down for a little while, I got up, had some cereal and took a shower. Again, the pain has receded but it’s not gone. I feel like any wrong move and it’s going to come right back.
It’s really bad. It hasn’t been this bad for awhile, especially not back-to-back days like this. And for me to take my Imitrex not once but twice? It has to be bad. I endure a lot before I break down taking one. They’re too expensive and too hard to come by to “waste” unless it’s serious. And damn has it been serious. This is what I was worried about being on the Lupron so man, I don’t know what to think now. I have my appointment on Tuesday but it’s just really bad right now. I’ve been useless in pain.
I had some errands to do today but I’m not risking it. I don’t want a repeat of yesterday’s second wave so I’m just going to take it easy. I’m worried though because it’s just so bad right now. And it’s scary when it’s this out of control and you don’t know what to expect next.
