Updates On Us All

Things have been rough for the last few days! My hospital stay was less than desirable. I've never had my blood drawn that many times. I woke up at 4am Saturday to the lab tech rubbing my arm with alcohol. I gave up after that. And, if a respiratory therapist comes in to do an ABG (arterial blood gas) or 2 or 3 RUN! Those suckers hurt, left my arm in pain for a while (so much so I couldn't text or hold up my book)

So far- we know nothing more than we did going into the hospital. And, I'm home. I went in today for the echo stress test. With the holidays we aren't sure when the results will be given. They did start me on a heart med today just to see if we could control the fluctuations. My HR climbed to 197 today during the test. The lady seemed a bit surprised a otherwise healthy 24 y/o could manage a HR that high. Congrats to me... haha

I went to Wal-Mart with Adam and it was terrible. I couldn't see 10 feet in front of me. The store began tunneling in on me, things got blurry, and I felt 'floaty'. It's a horrible feeling to have. I can't exercise, I can't go to the store- so we have to get this figured out soon. 'Cause I've got things that I've gotta do!

So, that's what we know. Nothing. I know it's not just 'nothing' when my actual Doc (and not the nurse) calls to check on me and says she didn't sleep last night b/c she was concerned though.

Mr Logen is doing well on the Keppra. We've not seen a seizure since we started it!!! YAY! Still planning on the videoed EEG in December. He's enjoying his break and staying home! Those 6am mornings were wearing on him!

Parker is busy being Parker! He's calling Adam "Adme" and me "ess-e-ka". He's a little mess. At dinner tonight he looked at Logen and very clearly said (and know, nothing he's said has been 'clear') "Bubba is funn-e" We got him on video last night dancing to Christmas tunes. Priceless. Logen was chillin' eating Lucky Charms- we got that on video too :)

Adam is working like a dawg. It's 'peak season'. We won't know who he is until after Christmas unfortunately!

If it weren't for my drama, I suppose things would be fairly calm here. It's always something, isn't it?!?!

  1. Thanks for the update Jess. Sorry that your hospital stay was rough and you weren't able to figure out what is wrong. I hope they can get you some answers soon.

    Glad to hear both the boys are doing well though. At least that is a silver lining.

  2. I'm sorry that you had to be in the hospital but it was probably the best place. I hope they figure out what's going on soon.

    I'm glad to hear Logan has been seizure free! That's great news.

    Try to take it easy!

  3. Thanks 4 the update, Jess!!! Always thinking of you guys!
    Happy Turkey day, my friend!!
    Love ya,
