Happy 1st Birthday to this sweet little boy! Holden, your mommy held you in the best she could while I was in Boston in the hospital. We rushed those doctors and nurses the best we could. They didn’t want me to go, as I was oxygen dependent still. I drug myself and my tanks to come and see you be born! I remember feeling like such crap from my pneumonia, but it was a struggle for you and mommy, so I had to be strong. I love you with all my heart! Thank you for making me an auntie again 💗 #allthekisses#chunkyboy#holdeneverett#sweetbaby#bestsnuggles#nephewnumber2#ilovemyniecesandnephews#auntlife#bestlife
As much as I tried to ignore my medical issues and plans while I was out of the country, it hit me like a ton of bricks when I got back. My port has flipped forward, my body is hurting from head to toe, I started having a GI bleed again, And i’m running out of medications. I have to pay over 7,000 dollars out of pocket in medical bills to reach my spend down to have Medicaid (which is a nightmare). When it rains it pours. I need fluids. I hate running my feeds when I’m bleeding because it makes me bleed so much more, but my port is inaccessible so I have no choice. If you have/had a port before... has it flipped over on you?
Well, actually not off to Amsterdam quite yet. We had another day in Frankfurt. Today, I took a good nap and tried some gnocchi chicken. It was kind of spicy, but good. Things I noticed today that is different from America... we drink a shit ton of soda. They give you a tiny cup... no free refills here. I miss 7-11 slurpees and the accessibility of them. Along the lines of vending machines, there is almost always a tobacco one. It made me realize how little Americans smoke these days. There aren’t as many bathrooms and no cups of free ice water. The weather was so lovely, though.
