Thank you Rosie for adding me to your page for prayers. I'd also like to thank sr/ks, GeorgiaCA, Cari, & Judy Miller for putting me on their page for prayers. Thanks to all who have done so for me.
In Oct. 2010 they did a bronchoscopy while I was in the hospital and found I have both MRSA and Pulmonary fibrosis (scarring) in the lungs. I had pneumonia for the second time in 2 months plus have had it every year since I was 9. There is no cure, wearing oxygen will not help in the end. The MRSA in my bones, lungs and now my urinary tract.
The scarring (Pulmonary fibrosis) in the lungs keep growing until there is no room for oxygen. There is no cure, wearing oxygen will not help in the end. I have been raised in church all my life. I saw miracles and now all I can do is trust God that He will heal me or at least let me slip quickly and quietly away. The Dr. said I would not be alive past April 2012 and yet here I am. I am blessed and so thankful.
*** I went to an eye specialist when I suddenly could not see. There is no hope for my left eye. The retina detached part way and has been wrinkled up for some time now. The eye doctor said my health is to bad to repair it. The cataract surgery went well on my right eye on October 1st. ***
UPDATE Dec. 17, 2013 My lungs are bleeding less now. I am still coughing day and night and passing out. I walk sideways when I try to walk and sometimes my foot stops in mid-air. I try to walk in the house everyday so I will not be unable to walk.
I am not crying as often but my face, feet, and hands are swollen all the time. My skin has blackened around my ankles from lack of oxygen. Those things I have to live with. I have to take water pills every day. I am allergic to sulfa so I itch all the time. I cut them down to once a day or every other day because of it.
Like I said Clair and I went to our lawyer some time back and had a legal document on me that says Do not resuscitate. We updated our Wills because the other ones were so old. My daughter and my husband both have Power of Attorney for me.
My entire family knows what I do not want done. I do not want intubation, (my doctor said I would never come off of it) nor a feeding tube, or dialysis. Everyone needs to have a Will because you never know.
Thanks Cindy TROLL'S Bridge Don't Stop Swinging That Hammer!

I understand about the blackened ankles... I have PVD and PAD and who knows what other things... they put me on fluid pills everyday... I can't tell that they make much difference. The redness on my left leg is continuing to travel up my leg despite wearing the hose that the doctor told me to wear... So... I never should have gained all the weight that I gained... but I never should have done a lot of things I have done.. hahaha... I am so happy that I met you... YOU are an inspiration to everybody..and I don't have a will drawn up, but my daughter knows what not to do when it comes to me, and she has already been through it with her dad...and she is older now... she lost him in 2001..so I know she will make the right decisions..and she is the only 1 of my 3 left...so nobody will fight her.
God bless you...and my Christmas wish is for a wonderful Christmas for you and your family!
|Mom to angels Bo and Chris||Merry Christmas!|
So good to hear from you... all that took place in 2003... I was told that grandparents didn't have rights in Texas...but I didn't have a lawyer to fight anyway... I just didn't have the money to do it... Ex husband died in 2011 but his wife has been GRANDMA for so long now..and he left it that SHE got custody... so... but I have 3 wonderful grandchildren (daughter's) that live with me... and she does, too...so I stay busy and have a big family though we are small in number!
I hope that you are able to enjoy time with all of your family... I attempted to go shopping with my daughter last night... I couldn't keep up...but my oldest grandson always stays with me... He says he is not going to leave me behind the way the others do! Bless his heart... he was the only baby for almost 4 years so I kinda spoiled him! haha!
Have a wonderful week until Christmas...and have a blessed and Merry Christmas! Thank you for writing.. and being a caring friend. Love, Cile

You, Ann, are so sweet to post a token for my brother-in-law today! He was the neatest man. Always making everyone laugh. He worked for Weyerhauser in Longview, Washington and died of cancer shortly after he retired. Your visit is cherished because I realize how difficult it is for you to be on the computer! Thanks my friend! Praying for you today!

I was just checking in to see if you had posted an update yet! I'm always anxious to see news from you. And, yes, I realize that the days and nights are growing more difficult. But, it helps me to be able to focus my prayer requests on the areas of most concern.
Our prayers are for your bleeding and coughing to stop allowing you to have more treasured moments with family this Christmas Season. God Bless You, Clair and your family! You are always in our thoughts and prayers...day and night. NEVER give up HOPE! Love and Hugs to you and Clair!
