Q&E Babble

Okay, I give.   I am doing it.   I miss PPWM too much.

I want to babble.   I think you all want to babble.  So let’s babble here and then go back to PPWM when they finally get us fixed.   I know, it’s discouraging now, but I am too optimistic for my own good.   I do think iVillage will get this mess fixed.   One day. 

For those not on FB, Shelly is monitoring Waylon, debating on a trip to Pitt.   He ran a fever all day yesterday and most of the night.   At her last check in, he’s down to 99.   She’s calling the coordinator this morning.

I had my work party last night.   I took a platter of Jalapeno Cheese Grits.   I have never had 6 people ask me for a recipe before.   I heard they were, “on point” and “ready.”  I love it when I bring the most popular dish.   There wasn’t a scrap left.  

Off to get dressed for work.   As of 3:00 today I am done until January 2nd.   And then I can start counting down for my spring break beach trip.

Tracy, your ex and Amy's ex are limbs from the same tree.  Except Amy's ex is a 45-year-old alcoholic lawyer.  Amy had been saving receipts and sending copies of them to her ex monthly, and every month he would randomly deduct $25 or $30 bucks from what he paid her.  And he pays two weeks late.  In reality, all he pays is 1/2 of the kids' health insurance premium.

Christine's ex has his issues, too, but he has paid his child support on time every month, including the period when he was unemployed.  At least he takes care of his kids.  (And Christine could actually afford to do it without him.)

Didn't see your post this morning Tracy.  Sorry the toad is acting like a jerk but I guess it isn't any surprise to you since he sure has not changed any in all the years you have known him right?

Hope your check comes in so you don't have to charge the trip. But either way you are heading to Florida end of next week!  Now that is something to cheer about!  I am with you on the cold weather.  It is freezing cold here today and the wind is blowing.  It feels much more like the middle of January than the 1st day of spring.

I am here ladies. Just been so nutty I am just now getting to sit down and read and catch up.

I took  Waylon Monday for some lab work after being in the hospital.  We stopped at Rite Aid and then got his hair cut and came home. Well we were almost home when my phone rang. . . . his corrdinator allin a panic, said his potassium was really high and wanted me to take him back and have it re-checked. So we came homeand I peed and away we went back. Checked itthe second time, and came home. I had a list of phone calls to try and make some appointments for me and Jeffrey and get a hold of the therapist. I made 2 calls and while I was on the second one, my cell rang and it was his corrdinator. I called her back and she was in an even bigger panic, said his potassium level was even higher, like dangerously high at 6.9. So back to the ER we went. They gave him an EKG and a couple of different medicines/treatments, and then about 4:00 the doctorsaid we can't do anything else here, you need to go to Pittsburgh and with it that high, he could go into tacacardic arrest and die, so you have to go by ambulance so he can stay on the monitors. Ugggggggggggg I came home and packed and went back to head out. So over all, I made 4 trips to the Grantsville Hospital on Monday.  We got there and in a room (finally) about 11:30.  We were home by 8:30 Tuesday night. It was insane. And do you know WHY???? All because Waylon will not eat, he is nibbling, but won't eat enough to keep himself hydrated so he was dehydrated, and I hadn't received his tube feeds and supplies yet.  And I CAN NOT get him to eat anything. I have told him that the tube feeds will only work for so long and then he will die. Does he seem to care? NOPE not at all. I am BEYOND stressed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing else going on around here.  Just the insanity is my every day!!!! Ugggggg

I will comment on everything that I read tomorrow!

Oh Shelly, I cannot imagine how frustrated you must be.   I recall a few years ago the doctor talked about an eating disorder clinic for Waylon.   I'd be putting that back up for discussion.   It sounds to me like you are dealing with some form of anorexia.   Don't feel guilty for not being able to fix that one yourself.   Of course you are the mom, so you think you can.   I would too.   I'm no doctor, so I know I am just going on my gut here, but it sounds to me like he's got so much beyond his control in his life that he has latched on the one thing he can directly effect.   And being a kid he can't get the magnitude of what he is doing to himself.   I feel for you, girl.   It can't be easy.

Well, we are trying again to have the season opener softball game.   DD should be playing in another town tonight.   She is supposed to be at the school "as quick as she possibly can."   Her game starts at 6:00.   She gets out of school at 4:00.   It's a 45 minute drive, if traffic is light.   And we first have to come home from school and change.   The coach told her to take her stuff to school and leave from there.   Um, I don't get off work until 4:00 and I can't take my police car out of county.   We have to go home.   She'll be late.   And then, add in there that it's going to be high of 36° today.   That sun will go down tonight and we are going to freeze.   I'll be in clothes, fleece, winter coat, hat, gloves, and fleece blanket over me.   Sounds like fun, huh?

Morning Ladies -

Shelly I would be at my wits end too.  Like Tracy said I think the not eating and not taking his meds is the one thing Waylon feels he can control.  No one can make him eat and no one can make him take his meds.  He is young and just does not get the magnitude of what he is doing to his body.  I don't think he even realizes what stress and pain he is putting the rest of his family through either.  Perhaps it is time to look into more than just a therapist for him.  Perhaps he needs some "tuff love" and sometime at a clinic that has the staff to deal with his behavior away from family and friends.  Group counseling wouldn't hurt for the rest of the family members too. It can't be easy on any of you watching what Waylon is doing to himself.  Don't feel like a failure just get out there and turn over every stone looking for all the options available.  Look on the internet.  Look over your shoulder and see the "orb" giving you some direction perhaps?  Sorry Shelly did not mean to get carried away here.  Just sometimes I need to pass on stuff - lol!

Shelly, I'm so sorry you guys have to deal with this. I can only imagine the stress and worry. I hope you guys can find the help you need.

Tracy, doesn't sound like any fun to be sitting outside in freezing weather. I think Ray's going to cancel practice tonight because it is so cold here too. Bring on Spring please!

Mel, have you told all of your family the big news yet? I bet they are/will be excited! How have you been feeling?

Guss, is the manhunt anywhere near you guys? Seems like there is always something going on in CO.

I've worked hard almost all day.  I swept and steamed the kitchen floor. Then I went into the "spare" room and straightened up in there.  I took out all of the YS stuff that Has been posted on the FB YS and hasn't sold and took it to the mission, I made 2 batches of pepperoni rolls, and then dinner. I need to do up my dishes.  I did 2 more loads of laundry and got it ALL put away.  I will sweep and steam the living room tonight after everyone goes to bed.  I was going to do it earlier, but P told me I was making too much noise and he couldn't see the TV. Yes, it is WAYYYYYYYY past time for him to go back to work!!!!

Mel ~ How are you feeling? And what if your family and Pauls have to say???

Gus ~ How is Baby B doing? How is the working out with David going for you all?

Tracy ~ It is WAYYY toocold to be sitting out. Burrrrrrr

Sandy ~ How is Webster doing?  How is your dad?

I wanted tocomment on more, but lost my train of thought. . . . .
