So I have felt useless for the last week and a half! I really dont know why either! I think it is because I start to think about mom and how I really cant do anything for her and her diagnosis so I feel like well... I cant do anything!! Anyone see where Im going with this! I have been worrying about this so much it is starting to affect my health! My blood sugars have been really out of wack and I havent been eating like I should! Which is like really bad for me cause I love to eat!! So I have been slacking off on meals and losing weight left and right! I have lost 40 pounds in the last 2 months! I think this is where most of the losing weight has come from! So anyway! I spent last night in the ER with my stomach pain and they said I had a UTI and that was probably what was causing my pain! YAY! Another insult to injury! well it is 1:30 in the morning and I am going to TRY to get some well needed sleep! Which probably wont happen! Wish me luck!!

So as many of you know, I had my surgical consult monday! Let me tell ya it wasn't all its cracked up to be! I wait for like EVER to get to the back! Oddly they was really busy! So I get back there and they do the usual! Vitals and wieght and height! So in the last week I have lose 5 more pounds raising the total to a wopping 40lbs in 2 months! So I sit in the room for a little bit and in walks the Dr. So i could tell this was going to be fun by his reaction walking into the room! He introduces himself and takes a seat across the room from me and takes up my chart. So he proceedes to tell me what I already know! He says that I have a stone in my appendix and that it is still there but my recent ct said that everything was normal! Normal?? Then why am I still having the pain! I ask him! He said I really dont know right now! I said ok well what are we going to do about it? He tells me to get on the exam table so he can check if I still had pain when you poke and prod it! Well that was a quick and easy YES!! So he tells me he wants to do a coloscopy to take a look up there and see whats going on. I said if you think its best ok lets do it! Well he said he wants to schedule it asap so I get to the scheduling desk and the soonest is Nov 10th! I asked the girl if there was anything better than that and all she said this is the best we got for now! So I sit here for another 2 months with this pain in my side and wait! I really dont understand this system! But in the end if it helps me stop hurting its the best I can do is wait! I am going to try to get some sleep for work tomorrow!

Oh before I go let me tell you what happened to me and the fam last night!! So Im lying in the bed just listening to the fan cause I have trouble falling asleep, long story! Ok so I hear this god-awful sound coming from the attic!! So I sit and listen closer! It sounds like big boxes or crates being dragged across the floor of the attic! Well the only problem with that is we have NO floor in the attic and NO one was up there!!! Ok so I was already freaked out!! So around the same time frame my dad's work truck was broken into and they stole some money and his... BIBLE!! Yeah I know!! Well we know at least they will have a guilty feeling about it cause of the bible! Well I'll let everyone know about everything that goes on!! Peace!!

So yeah I haven't blogged in almost a week! I feel like I am leaving ya'll hanging!! So I have been working and working and still working!! Not really much different going on. Mom still has no job and still has Alzheimer's. So thats all the same! I'm going to leave you with a little history fact that I bet ya'll didn't know!!

John Hancock's signature on the Declaration of Independence was very large, resulting in the modern term "put your John Hancock" which means to sign something. His signature on other documents was rather large too, but he had a particular reason for writing big on the Declaration. Signing the Declaration was an act of considerable bravery, because it would be seen by the King of England as high treason. He wanted King George III, who was farsighted, to be able to see his signature clearly.

In the first phone company, the four operators had to remember the names of about 200 customers. When John Smith wanted to call Tom Hardin, for instance, the operator knew which plug to put in which hole. When two of the four operators became sick with the measles, the doctor, who was also a part owner of the phone company, suggested numbering the customers so that temporary operators who didn't know all the customers by name, could work the system. This is how phone numbers came to be.

Everyone knows that gasoline was rationed during World War II, but few know how severely. People were allowed three gallons per week. Tell me, even with a modern, fuel-efficient car, could you get by on that?

A medical curiosity was David Kennison, who was born in 1736 and participated in the Boston Tea Party. At the age of seventy-six, serving in the War of 1812, he lost a hand to a gunshot wound. Later, a tree fell on him, and fractured his skull. Some years later, while training soldiers in the use of a cannon, something went wrong and an explosion shattered his legs. He recovered. Yet later, a horse damaged his face. He died peacefully in 1851 at the age of 115.
Can you say odd?!?!

Dear Sweet Billy!!!

I was sitting here at my computer Monday when I got a text message from my "wonder twin" Erin, that's when my world was turned upside down!! She said that one of our charge nurses "Billy passed away today." WOW!! Thats all I could say at the moment! So I went to work the next day, which was yesterday, and it was really really bad. Everyone was reacting to the news and really was upset. Honestly, it really didn't hit me until tonight at the viewing. I couldn't get off work early, so I went after and got there about 7:15ish. The line took us about an hour to get to the casket. And that's when I lost it. I saw Billy's fire gear. It said rest in peace captain Stewart. And they retired his fire number! Yeah that's when it finally hit me and I haven't been able to stop crying since. He is being given a FULL firefighter funeral, so I will be wearing my uniform out of respect and he is getting the largest precession I think I have ever witnessed. But the main thing is I think he wouldn't have wanted EVERYTHING like that but we are doing it for him because he was a great nurse, flight nurse, nascar medic, firefighter, and paramedic!

Rest In Peace my dear sweet Billy Stewart! You will be greatly missed, but we know you are not in pain anymore. You can get the rest you deserve. We love you!! William "Billy" Stewart May 4th, 1979- Sept. 8th, 2008. PS we will watch over Reese as we know you will!

So mom went to the doctor today because she has been forgetting a lot more stuff here lately! Well the doctor said that she has... Alzheimer's!! I dont know what to do!! All I can think about is when those type of patients come into the er and I have to take care of them and they are so helpless and I dont want mom to become like that!

I have to work tomorrow so I'm going to TRY to get some sleep seeing as I only got 35 mins. of sleep last night!! Dont know why!! NeHoo!! "Good night and good luck"
