Hi Dear Friends,
Well I am kind of tired tonight. It's been busy around here lately. First, my Mum. This week, we thought she had CDiff back again. Turns out it is just the flu with a bad cold but I went to Montreal and organized a caregiver, did groceries and made apple crisp and soup and stuff. So that was good and I felt a lot better after doing that. But my sister's daughter is in the hospital with an awful set of circumstances and I've been trying to help quarterback some additional information and maybe a second opinion. The underlying condition is CVID (Common variable immunodeficiency disorder) and the treatment is immunoglobulin infusions. Well she had her first one and got a 3% chance of cyclical migraine called status migrainosis. She hasn't been able to get out of bed - double vision, vomiting, the whole nine yards. Anyway, today for the first time, she seems to be responding to the treatment and maybe she'll be released tomorrow. Thank God!!!
Nicholas is not doing all that well, but not that badly either. He's not at death's door or anything, but we are all getting mightily peeved with him feeling nauseated every day and not being able to sit up even. Anyway, I thought maybe today it was a UTI but the dip stick unfortunately was negative. Anyway, I was just hoping, I think the problem is pseudo obstruction - he's at high risk because of being bedridden, having CP and being on so many pain killers. His gut is not working very well these days. We're waiting for a gastro consult and we've made it an urgent request. We'll see when we get that call. Hopefully soon!!!
Anyway, tonight I'm waiting for my daughter to come home from the airport. It's Canadian thanksgiving weekend and her flight was very delayed, but she will be home soon. Tomorrow we'll visit Nick and then go to the cottage for the weekend and come home on Monday morning to Nicks' where I'll make a roast chicken with stuffing (he likes it better than turkey) and all the trimmings. Natalie flies back to Toronto Tues morning.
Hoping that everyone in my family will feel better soon! It's not an emergency like you had with Jon, Rose, but a dull worry that has been kind of throbbing lately, you know? Anyway, I will sleep tonight with my baby girl home!
Lots of love to all my friends here on CN - blessings to you all.
