Help a friend

Please help my friend Kim that is battling brain cancer. She is so brave and could use your help for daily living expenses. If we got 100 people to donate $5 it would be amazing. She is so brave and doing this on her own. Your contribution would be greatly appreciated.

If you are on my Facebook then you know Jude already has the flu. So he got through the Pneumonia and came down with the flu. Before you ask...........yes he had the flu shot. The doctor explained Flu B is not in the shot and therefore people are spreading it quickly. She said they think if the person has had the shot it lessens the severity.

Today Jude's nurse is pushing fluids. He still looks very pale and you can tell he doesn't feel well, but he is smiling. To top it off Emily is not feeling well and is at home today in bed. I am also still not up to par. I am at work, but really would like to sleep.

I am hoping our house gets well soon! We appreciate the continued prayers. The flu can be dangerous for Jude so we are watching him closely.

Jude Jude Jude

So Jude finally came off his antibiotic last week and we were very relieved. However on Friday night 12/7 Jude cried when I got home for hours. He threw huge screaming fits like he was in pain. I administered the Valium, but Jude continued to cry. I then gave him his clauzapam (sedative) because it was near bedtime, but again he continued to cry. That means he cried through two full doses of sedation medication. We had no clue what was going on. The next day Jude seemed to be fine..........tired but fine. He went the rest of the weekend with smiles.

Yesterday Charlotte encountered a repeat of Friday, but this time the valium did put Jude to sleep. She also said he had taken two 1.5 hour naps prior to his three our crying session. Again, she couldn't find a cause.

So today he woke up at 9:30 and she said he was smiling. He then took a 45 minute nap, spent some time in his wheelchair, and then cried again. She said he is now back to sleep AGAIN. We have no idea what's going on with him. I don't know if he is still recovering, if he is having a relapse, if it's effects from the antibiotic use, if he is dealing with migraines, or what. I put a call into every doctor he has (pretty much) and I am waiting on calls back.

I on the other hand have hit a wall and am very aggravated today. I am not aggravated at Jude, but at the situation. I will get over it........I am just meh!
