Sick as a dog

The last couple of days I have been not feeling very well, the pain is getting a little better but I have been having a feeling of not being able to "catch" my breath and still very swollen.  Now I feel sick to my stomach and dizzy.  I tried driving today and I was so carsick.  I was going by the surgeons office, so I stopped in and told them I wasn't feeling well.  They didn't even have a THERMOMETER in that office to take my temp!  They paged my surgeon and he was going to have them call in an antibiotic for me!  I told the lady, no I cannot drive over to the pharmacy and sit there for an hour and that I was going home.  I told them I would call them if I didn't feel better tomorrow.  I am wondering if I am having complications such as perhaps an infection or bile leak somewhere. 

Sarah has been a monster lately too and being demanding and rude.  She still expects me to wait on her hand and foot and gets mad if I can't do what she wants.  I try to rest and every couple minutes she barges in the room saying she is "bored".  I called her grandmother and she even seemed reluctant to watch her for a while.  She did take her for a couple hours but then said "I'll see you sunday" for her party.  She never said if you need something call.  I was so mad after leaving that Dr.s office that I have NO ONE to rely on and help me.  Now I know that isn't completely true.  My Dad called today and offered to take me to the Dr. tomorrow and to the pharmacy.  I feel like such a loser.  Here I am 42 years old with no friends or family willing or able to help me except for Dad.  I know my Mom would in a heartbeat but she is so far away.  She has felt terrible and worries so much about me.  I LOVE YOU MOM!

Ok enough whining!

I hope you feel better soon. Let Dad take you to the doc and the pharmacy. Something doesn't sound right. That is a shame that Sarah's grandmother won't take her for a couple of days. You may not feel up to a party Sunday. Helen

Hiya sweetie, so sorry you aren't feeing good. I've seen the surgery and they have a triple backup system to make sure now leaks.  Besides, you'd be in ICU by now if it was truly a bile leak.  Sarah, just has to understand that sometimes she just has to make her own fun or deal with being bored.  Life is not exciting all the time.  take good care,  Bethe

oh I'm so sorry, Linda; wished I lived closer, I'd be there in a heart beat! (I don't think you are supposed to be driving so soon after surgery are you? but if no one else is there to do the errands for you)

do stay on top of this; it does sound like something else might be going on

Sounds like you'll have to rely on dear old Dad.  Let him help out.  I surely hope you get to feeling better.

I do hope that you feel better soon. Sarah should be helping you in whatever way she can and you should tell her so.  Please keep us updated if you feel up to it.
