Siri could use thoughts/prayers

Recommended Posts

So i've been having a very difficult few months, that has reduced my interaction on the forums even further than I've already been reduced...

 

Namely, I've been dealing with health issues from reoccurring colds, to a un-diagnosed lump on my left hip I'm still trying to get identified and treated.

My step-father is the biggest issue that I could really use some thoughts and prayers on. He had surgery months ago, and since then has been dealing with chronic pain. It hurts him to swallow, to drink/eat, to talk, to do anything. He's lost 70 pounds since January and barely eats anything, and he spends most of his day curled in his chair in pain, hardly moving or talking and it kills me to see him like this and knowing I can do nothing. He has a second opinion doctor that he won't be able to see until May, and I hate to think of what a month more of this is going to do to him in the meantime.

On top of that, we're looking to move houses and so that added stress isn't helping me at all, namely due to there being so little available right now. And storm season is starting up, so tornadoes are going to be at threat for the next few months as well.

I dunno, it helps to just vent things here a bit. But if you've been wondering where I've been, this is what I've been doing. Hardly done any drawing or painting.

I need to finish  my Spring exchange, then i'll probably stop participating in exchanges for a while until things look better for me.

I'm not religious, but I'll be sending good thoughts your (and your stepfather's) way!  Hope things take a turn for the better, and soon!

*giant glompy hugs*

 

Hope things get better for you and your step-father. Maybe see if Second-Opinion doctor can try and get him in on a cancellation? Explain the issue and weight loss and they might help. *fingers crossed*

Oh Siri, I'm sorry to hear it. I hope that your family and health issues get resolved. You are in my thoughts.

Sending thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

 

I don't know what your financial/insurance/geographical situation is, but if possible I would try to find a second opinion doctor who can see your step-father sooner. Have you contacted the original surgeon's office? Has he had follow-up visits with him?

The same with you, if your not happy with what your current doctor is doing for you, if at all possible, seek out another one.

yes he's had numerous follow up visits to the surgeon, but they can't find the source of the pain
