    • My father passed away

      10 years ago

      APRILOO

      Sorry I have not been on in awhile. I have been really busy between work and my father being in the hospital. I haven't really shared what was going on with him. In the earlier part of last year he was diagnosed with cancer of the distal esophagus. While the doctors were performing tests for surgery they found blockages in his heart. He at bypass surgery the end of June and was back in for esphagus surgery on July 24th. He never came home after the surgery. He had horrible comblications and at the end was in kidney and lung failure. He passed away January 11th, 2009. It has been a very hard past year. He was in alot of pain in the end.


      I would like to pass along his memorial guest book to those of you who knew him or would like to learn about his love and work through his life. The link will connect to his obituary and memorisl guest book. I ask you to please keep my family in your prayers through this hard time.

      I need to let everyone know what is going on. It is a long story but the just of it is, my dad was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus in April. While they we doing per-op testing they found 4 blockages in his heart so they perform a quadruple bypass prior to the esophageal surgery. That was on June 30th and on July 24th he went in for esophageal surgery. They resected a large area of the distal esophagus and proximal stomach. About two weeks later the incision dehisced and he has basically been in ICU ever since. The surgeons went back in and tried to close it but it failed. They finally placed a stent and that has seemed to help the most. He still has a very minuscule whole in his esophagus but the doctors are optimistic that it will close on its own. Through all of this he developed a real bad infection in his chest. At one point he had three chests tubes. Luckily they have gotten it under control and have removed two of them.

      Before he was diagnosed with cancer we had made plans to get married in Mexico and my parents where going to be there. So, since he will not be able to make it we decided to have a small ceremony in the hospital with my parentson the 4th. It meant a lot to them. Dad was stable enough that he was able to go down to the chapel. It was very nice. We are still planning on having a ceremony in Mexico on Oct. 28th. So, that pretty much gets everyone caught up.

      Here is a link to a slideshow I put together.

    • Finally Recovering

      11 years ago

      APRILOO

      Well, the last 4 days I have spent the majority of my im on the couch or in the bed. I have been home sick from work for 3 days now.

      The best part is my doctor trips.

      The first one:
      So, the nurse takes me into the room and takes my temperature. "103.3 that the highest today. But, thats not a good thing is it?" I squeak out not its not.

      The doctor comes in and talkes to me for a second. "Did you get a FLU vaccine?" No I didnt. Then he goes on about how important they are as he rams a cotton tipped applicator down my nose into my throat. Oh, and they will tell you this will be uncomforable but should shouldn't be painful. They lie and lie hard. After this he goes on to say that he has diagnosed 2 people this morning with the FLU. One of which he thought might not recover. Right the I was like whoa, slow down there. I have a high temp than this guy thats is on his death bed. The the doctor leaves and say that should be done in about 15 minutes.

      15 minutes later. "Well, you do not have the FLU. It is negative." Well thank god. Because all that lecturing was worth it. "However, this most likely a virus and I usually dont treat with antibiotic. But, I going to this time since you have a significant fever." At this point Im like thanks doc, I bet I could find a secondary infection for you to treat with those antibiotics. "would you like some hydrocodone cough syrup to help your cough and give you some pain relief." Oh yes please.

      So, I leave there and head to the pharmacy to pick up my meds. I get my meds and crash at home. The next day I one got out of bed to take medication and use the restroom.

      Friday night I spent the night nauseated and vomiting. And, I can hardly swollow it hurts so bad to begin with. It was so uncomfortable. Im like I have to go back to the doctor.

      Saturday morning I went back to the doctor. Thank god my clinic I go to has a saturday morning acute illness clinic. I get the and the doctor looks a my throat and say that bad. "Lets do a Strep test." I bet you have strep. 15 min later. He shows me the word negative written on a pice of paper. "Well, this is got to be a virus." "Do you want an injestiable steriod or oral." Oral please.

      So 12 hours later my fever is finally gone, my throat doesnt hurt nearly as bad, I can breath again, and I can walk around the house with no aches in my muscles.

      Thank god for steriods!

      Sorry its been a long time since I posted. Let me up date you a little. I have been working a lot. Our clinic is going through expansion and I have been having to do more work to cover the head doctor so he can over see some of the stuff. But, work has been good.

      Exciting stuff: I am engaged and the wedding is set from Oct 4th 2008. I havent had too much time to start planning but will have to start soon.

      Not so exciting stuff: I have bursitis in my knee. If you dont know what that is, it is inflammation of a bursa (a fluid filled sack that decreased pressure and friction over joints). It will get better and then worse again. I have been on NSAIDs for 7 days and the pain has started moving into my patellar tendon area. Im afraid im going to have to go back to the doctor and have more diagnostic done. Im not looking forward to that. Hopefully it will get better.

      Well thats basicly it. Hows has everyone else been?


      Oh yea Geaux Tigers!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

      I thought I would share with yall since I havent updated in awhile.

      I got ash groomed today and thought I would take some pics. Couldnt find my camera so they are from my phone. They always like to give him girlie bows for some reason. He hates and I repeat hates them. The second he gets home he rubs rubs rubs on the couch and chair and gets them half out and looks totally stupid. So I take them right out. However I made him not rub with the attention of treaters of course. One of the pics I sent just to show you how disobedient he can be. I thought it was kinda funny. Oh by the way I would take the girlie bows out anyway. They are not for him if you were wondering about that.

      I got a new car about a month and a half a go. Its a 2007 Nissan Altima. Here are some pics of my car. Which yesterday something on the road hit the top of it so there is a dent and a nice scratch on the top of it. Not happy. But, Im still enjoying the car very much.

      Im in the process of buying a house. The house is basicly ours now. The electrician came out and certified the wiring to be good. The home inspector found some burned wires but they seem to be okay, We also asked for gutters and they will put up the gutters if we can move the closing date up. Rus is talking to the lenders today to see if we can move it up. If it is moved up then we will be closing on the 24th. Which is less than a week away. If not it will be the 31st.

      Work has been interesting this week. I have been by myself for a total of 6 days. And I havent killed anything. I know I know your suprised. Oh actually I take that back. Monday I had to put a cute little puppy to sleep but thats because the owner didnt want to treat for parvo. Sigh. The puppy just start showing signs the day before so it might have actually made it. But what can you do. I have done a spay by myself now and the owner actually complimented my incision. How about that one? I was pretty happy with myself.

      Well I think that about brings yall up on everything. How is everyone?

      11 years ago

      Geaux Tigers!

      You know, just because you are from Arkansas doesn't mean you have to cheer for the Razorbacks. But because you went to LSU for college means you have to cheer for the Tigers.

      I would have to cheer for the Rainbow warriors against the Georgia bulldogs if I went to Hawaii University.

      Ha ha ha. Rainbow warriors.

      Oh you know, screwed financially. I took some tuition reimbursement from my work which was great in the short run, but it also locked me into my employer for a year. Now my grace period is almost up and I can't find a job internally, so I may have to take tuition reimbursement again just to get past a few months while I keep searching for a job. Too bad they don't give you a year to start paying these things back.

      This is what I told someone else:

      Well, it connect directly to the system. Works on the same 2.4 GHZ frequecy as the controllers. You have to sync it with the system just like the controllers. From there, you can switch between the four controllers. So if you're playing with a friend and for some reason you want to let them use, you just hand it to them and they switch the headset to player 2. Battery life is OK I guess. Seems to be around 10 hours maybe? Comes with an AC adapter(wall wart) that charges it. I think if I were you, I might hold off for right now. Some people are having a lot of problems. Mine seems to act finicky every once in a while. Sometimes it might drop off for a couple seconds, the voice comes through the speakers, then it comes back. Some people are having bad static and echo problems. Voice quality is pretty good though, so that's a plus. If I were you though, I might wait a bit unless you're really desperate for it right now. See if they can get some of these bugs worked out.
