Sickness but solidering on


Good morning everyone, how are you all? I am all stuffed up in the head with body aches and a slight headache and this is the second day I have felt like this but being mum I just suck it up and solider on.

Yesterday as rotten as I felt and feeling oh so tired and like I needed a nap what did I do I sucked it up and went and met mum at the xray place to be with her while she had her heal xrayed and an ultrasound done of it. Then we went over to the John Hunter (hospital) for her appointment to get the results of all the tests done on her kidneys, well the test showed nothing sinister the doctor has asked for a follow up ct scan to be done in January and for mum to go back in February and if everything still looks good then they will just chalk up the lumps as something mum has and no further action needed.


Now my sister Sue has been complaining for the last week more or less that she is "so sick" and has been in bed all the time, damn I don't know anyone who sleeps as much as she seems to do. Although she will say that she is often not asleep just sitting up in bed on the computer, however mum has on a number of occasion gone and knocked on her door to speak to her and when she has received no answer has opened the door and found her asleep.


Would I like to be in bed yeah but I don't feel like I have the time to be sick there is so much I either need to do to want to do so as I said I just suck it up and deal.............I think many women are the same.


Oh yeah mum's xray showed she has a spur on her heal which may be the reason it hurts so much when she is standing or walking. I don't know how they treat a spur I guess I will find out soon, when mum knows she will tell me.


Little Sydney-May is sick she was running a fever of 39°C yesterday so her mum and Mickey took her to the after hours GP, they put her on antibiotics which of course she doesn't want to take. Thankfully this morning her temp is down to 37°C but she still doesn't look or feel well.


Ok that is all my news for this post.....................

  1. Oh, I hope you clear up and feel better soon. I had some bone spurs in my heel and had to get a couple of injections over some weeks directly into the heel. It did the trick!

  3. When we have children around who need us, we don't have the luxury of being sick and staying in bed. Now that my children are adults and I don't have grandchildren, I still can't stay in bed because the dogs need me.

    Love,
    Janie

  6. A heal spur can be bloody painful. I'm not sure what can be done about it but I'm sure your mum would feel better when or if they can. I hope you feel better yourself... Soldier on my friend. :)

  10. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    Oh, at times we do feel like a rag and rather would want to hide in a corner or in the bed. But as you say, sometimes you just have to suck it up and deal with things that no one else could do. Glad you got to go with your Mum and let's hope her kidneys will be fine. I know that feeling personally, my kidneys are damaged but they could not yet determine what those spots were. For that I had to pay over $ 5,000 out of pocket for all the expensive tests. Why is it that in the medical world they calculate THAT much? It makes us suck it up and do with very little for quite a while in order to get over it.
    But let's be positive; we're still all there!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  11. I had a spur on my baby toe once and it hurt like hell! I could hardly wear shoes. They did surgery to remove it and had to wear one of those boots for a while. But it helped. I couldn't believe how much pain that little thing caused. Best of luck to her and hope you are feeling better soon too!

    1. Yeah I could see the spur on mums heel when they did the xray and for such a little thing it causes so much pain. I don't think mum would be keen on surgery but sometimes you just have to do what needs to be done if you want the pain to go.

  12. Hope you are all feeling better soon! Glad the kidney scan of your mom came back clean!
