This has been a stressful month. (or why I'm disliking doctors right now!) The month started out with Grandma itching like crazy. Mom takes her to the doctor. He says she has scavies. So for the last FOUR weeks we've been treating and retreating her. We have all furniture wrapped in plastic. We wash EVERYTHING Everyday! 11 loads of laundry every single day because Grandma keeps getting reinfected since the scavy isn't going away. After weekly appointments with the doctor and nothing getting better, Mom took Grandma to a dermatologist yesterday. Grandma never had scavies. Her immune system is attacking itself. Basically, Grandma is allergic to herself. So, for four weeks Grandma has been on quaratine so she couldn't go see Grumpus and we've been working around the clock to get rid of something that wasn't even there. Then, 2 weeks ago, Dad went to the Navy ER because he had blood in his urine. The ER do says "You have bladder cancer" and sends him to the Army ER, wher that doctor says "you have bladder cancer" but the Army can't do any tests until you go through the urologist. So they send Dad back to the Navy ER. Another ER doctor says "you have bladder cancer". It took 24 hours before we got to see the urologist at the Army hospital. (These hospitals are 2 hours away from each other).... The urologist looks at Dad and says "I doubt it's cancer". Turns out that Dad had a bladder infection and the blood thinners that he's on caused all the bleeding. Dad is fine, but for 24 hours we were very scared. A week after that, Mom had a health scare that turned out to be a false alarm. And, I delveloped Tinnitus (constant ringing in the ears) and Vertigo. And to top that off, I now have a rash on my chest. It could of been from the vertigo medicine but most likely is just from nerves....or so the doctor says. And then Ant called my Monday night all stressed out. There was an accident at the saw mill. His friend got his arm cut off! And Ant was the closest person so he ripped off his shirt and tried to stop the bleeding until the ambulance could get there. He was really shook up over it. His friend is doing okay. They were able to reattach the arm and have him in a medically induced coma for a while. So....as you can see, I am so ready for this month to be over with! And I'm hoping that November is a much calmer, quieter month!! Of course, now that Grandma no longer has to be in quarantine, her first question wasn't "when can I see my husband?" but "when are you taking me to the casino?" Even with no kids in the house anymore.....my life is still crazy. Guess I'm a magent for a crazy life.
