The molehill that became a mountain!!!!

  1. I made a promise to myself a couple of months ago that I was not going to post any more threads that were "down", cause I felt it gave many folks negative feelings towards me, but today, I'm breaking my own rule. I feel like ranting and am whizzed off. 2 months ago, my DH was DX'd with a right sided hydrocele, no biggie, penal block, problem solved. Yesterday we went for the surgeon's consult, well boy were we in for a rude awakening. Turns out the ultrasound showed bilateral inquinal (sp?) herniations and bilateral hydroceles, so YYIIPPEE, now the real fun begins. ( had 2 opinions) He is scheduled for surgery next week, which we were not money wise ready for, an emergency LOA for God knows how long and I'm supposed to keep looking up and thanking the dear Lord for the beautiful sunshine and take it with a grain of salt.. Oh, the good part, no insurance. Yes, I am greatful that God is going to be with him, greatful that I have the best surgeon in our county to do it, but for crying out loud, when will one week go by without another kick in the head. Please forgive me for breaking my "no more negative posts" promise to myself and to all of you in my heart, but I feel like pulling my hair out and anyone elses that will let me. Don't think I could feel any worse than if I was sitting in the bottom of an outhouse and everyone was taking a poo on me. Hubby is trying to pass this off like no biggie deal, but I already know how he is feeling and he has NO idea what he is in for!!!!!! Okay, someone tell me to shut up now and stop whining and I'll just blow up and go away!! I PROMISE!!!!! Duckie

    Sweetheart, you know I will always be there for you somehow. And I'm sure these good folks don't mind if you decide to vent a little. Listen, until you came along, all the so called friends in my life were users and takers. You care about me for me and nothing else. You're a wonderful lady, who's had to put up with too much garbage your life. I am praying for you and Jimmy. I know I'm not much, but I will always be there for you no matter what. You've been there for me. It's my turn now. It will get better my friend. It has to. And always vent when you feel the need to. We all need to let off a little steam now and then. Love ya babe. Theresa/WW:kiss

    Gosh, sometimes it seems we just never will get ahead, doesn't it? Only advice I have is to just hang in there, keep focusing on the positives, and take it one day at a time. This too, shall pass.

    This is not a negative post. This is a post about the crap that's happening. It does not make you whiney.

    I know that nothing we can say will make it go away or make the money from the missed work drop on your lap; I wish it could! But please feel free to come here and talk to us about this stuff; we're here for you. I'll certainly be saying a prayer for your family (and your poor hubby; youch!!!).

    Thanks everyone, I guess the thing I'm most concerned about is that he has to go under a general and he has COPD. I cannot say my faith in this hopital is great but do know the two docs I have on the case are the best. You want to know the best docs, you ask the nurses that work with them and a very dear friend of mine hand picked these two. I know this to shall pass and God will be there with him, just gotta get my nerves together and figure it all out. Thank you for your kind words. Hugs, Duckie

    OH BUT THE REALLY GOOD NEWS>>>>>>>> My hubby has come from 3 generations of alcoholics. As of today he is 87 days sober after 35 years of daily drinking!!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!!! Both sets of his grand parents died from it, his parents died from it, his baby brother was killed while D & D and the other one nearly died last year then he quite drinking. Well, when the symptoms started the doc checked his liver enzymes and they were off the chart. They are almost into the normal range after no drinking and a regular regimen of Milk Thistle and Liver Detoxifier. So for this I thank my Lord, He does answer prayers. No permanant damage has been done in with his next check up in 6 months I look for them to be totally normal again. YYIIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!! Just had to share the good news and give God the glory!!! Hugs, Duckie
