SLAP Tear – Surgery, Recovery, And Asking for Help

Posted by miss m on Monday, July 31, 2017 @ 11:13pm in Blog, Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

On Friday, July 28th, following an MRI Arthrogram, I was diagnosed with a SLAP Tear; specifically, “Left superior labral tear extending along the posterior superior quadrant.” I’m going to need surgery which is going to leave me with one arm for months, unable to drive, work, or support myself in anyway. So I’m asking for […]

Urgent $188 Goal

Posted by miss m on Thursday, September 13, 2012 @ 11:26am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

Hot on the heels of paying off two bills the other day, I get a collection notice. This is the remainder of the bill from the radiologist during my initial ER visit on May 29th. I have less then 30 days to raise $188 to pay this bill off, or it goes on my credit. […]

Post Hysterectomy – 8 Months Post Op

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 @ 12:09am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

I haven’t updated in awhile so I thought I’d post another photo of the healing progress. June 5th was eight months post op from my Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH) and my incisions are looking really good. The main scar on my left (viewer right) is fading nicely and is much less red then it was. […]

Boring Weekend

Posted by miss m on Sunday, April 29, 2012 @ 12:43pm in Finances, General Blather, Love, M's Birthday, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues, Weather |

Nothing really to talk about, hence the lack of posts in a few days again. Just more of bullet-point comments than anything, so here goes: Love’s CT scan The neurologist wanted to get it done to see if they could track down the source of the throbbing/whooshing/pulsing problem he has in his right ear. Doc […]

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 @ 3:05pm in General Blather |

Today is day 161 or 5.75 months since my surgery. Next week will be 6 months since my hysterectomy. Crazy to think six months has gone by already! In an effort to continue to help those looking for information and healing timelines for a hysterectomy, here’s where I am at. At six months, you are […]

Collections

Posted by miss m on Friday, January 20, 2012 @ 5:51pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

So, even though the debt started as $1,200 and it’s down to $930 and I’ve been paying every month, apparently the “fact” that so long as you pay they can’t send you to collections is an urban myth. Every single person I’ve ever talked to both in person and online said just pay it each […]

Quality of Life

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 @ 8:11pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Yesterday, I shared the Assumptions people make about me based on their preconceived notions and health care expenses. Today, I’m expanding on that topic to Quality of Life. Besides “knowing” all the money I obviously waste on doing my nails, having a fancy new car, buying iPhones, etc. people also have other “helpful” suggestions about […]

Saturday Rest

Posted by miss m on Sunday, January 8, 2012 @ 12:49pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

I got more than a little overwhelmed on Friday when the links, emails, mentions, tags and hits just flooded in. It was crazy. So Saturday, Love and I took a day completely off the interwebs. We took a drive over to Orlando, talked, walked around, window shopped, people watched, had a burger, watched some fireworks […]

PhoenixFire Designs Updates

Posted by miss m on Saturday, December 3, 2011 @ 11:33am in Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Love’s doing well, sore but healing. What’s not doing so great is the finances since we had to spend $187 Thursday for the surgery that no one told us about ahead of time. Part of that money was earmarked for our past-due power bill but now…ugh. So, I’ve been hard at work trying to get […]

Still Sick, Medical Bills & Day Job Update

So I’m still dealing with the cold that I woke up with out of nowhere on Saturday. My poor lips are all cracked and split, my nose is red and scaly and now everything is turning to chest congestion so I’ve added coughing up nasty crap to my runny nose. Super fun and oh so […]

6 Week Post Op Hysterectomy

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 2:03pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Today is 6 weeks from surgery. Tomorrow I have my 6-week appointment with my doctor to see how I’m healing up. It’s a big stage in the healing since, if all is well, I get a lot more restrictions lifted and can get back to almost normal activities. Even though at 6 weeks you are […]

Ok, so it’s Monday. And busy week ahead. First, the Honda. Love talked to a friend who gave a mechanic recommendation. Looked him up on Google and he’s got 10, 5-star reviews. Everyone says he’s honest and fair priced. Love’s friend has been going to him for years. So I’m waiting on AAA right now […]
