*On Monday, it seemed like anything that could go wrong did go wrong.
It started about 4:00 in the morning.
That is what time Princess Shaney woke me up complaining about right abdominal pain, again. I have no idea how many times I have had her into her doctor or ER in the last 8 months for lower abdominal pain. The first time, her doctor sent her for an ultra sound and labs checking for appendix. But everything was normal. About a month later, we went back and decided that it was female stuff and put her on the pill. She would never take them and I couldn't figure out why, but I decided it all went back to wanting to have the physical pain. A couple of weeks ago, we went to the ER and they did another ultrasound and found free flowing fluid around her right ovary and thought that it might have been a small cyst rupture. The ER doctor told her to start taking her birth control pills. So, on Monday, we went back to the ER, this time I thought it was her appendix. This time with the abdominal pain, she was throwing up. So they did labs again and did a cat scan this time. He labs showed a slightly elevated white count and she was running a slight fever. But the cat scan was normal. So they sent us home and told us to see an OB/GYN. So, the next day we went and seen one. She said let's give the pills a couple of months to start working; find a different counselor to get into (because neither one of us liked the one we had been seeing). She also said she was a candidate for these injections they have started and if she isn't feeling better in a couple of weeks, we could try those. But she doesn't think it is ovarian pain because the pain isn't in the right spot for that.
*Also on Monday, my nephew was in the ER, they thought that he had had another stroke. Luckily, it wasn't. They decided it was just vertigo. Because of all the problems he had last year, they kept him over night to make sure all was good with him.
*My sister & her husband go with bikers from all over the country every May, they ride back to Washington D.C. and they are back there in time for Memorial Day. They meet up with their group in Arizona and there are about 300 bikers in their group. They left Utah on the 14 of this month. They changed their route this year because of all the storms in Texas & Oklahoma. So they went north and then headed east. On Monday,(same one) they were in an accident in Kansas City, Kansas. Luckily, they weren't hurt very bad. My sister broke her left hand & her right ankle. Her husband only had scrapes and bruises. She flew home on Tuesday and he rode the bike home and got here on Thursday. She will see an Orthopedic here on Wednesday (the 29) to see if things have changed. If bones in foot are shifting, she will probably need surgery.
*The one good thing out of that terrible Monday. Prince Kenard graduated from high school!!!! When he started kindergarten, I wasn't thinking about future things. I didn't let him start school til he was 6-1/2 (he turned 7 the following February). Then when he was in the fourth grade, he had struggled so much that when we moved in with Mr. Hubs, I held him back and had him do the fourth grade over. Which made him 20 when he graduated! But he stuck it out and got done!
He wasn't very happy about walking with his class, I told him that he needed to do it. He had worked so hard to get this, that he shouldn't have any regrets.
But then, maybe that is just a girl thing. I didn't walk with my class and I have regretted it ever since.
I had all my excitement for the whole week in one day!
*Friday will be the last day of school for our district and we are done until the middle of August now.
Until we meet again! Pam
