Look What I Made!
Okay, so it was a joint effort ...
Meet Lyric Arcadia.
She was born on December 29th at 1:04am.  She weighed 7lbs 7oz and measured at 19 inches long.
And most definitely Daddy's Girl already. :heart:

Well holy shit folks. Let me put this in bullet form.

Sept. 29, 2015: heart attack (angina, was in hospital awaiting angiogram)
Sept. 30, 2015: an IV site got infected with staph bacteria which rapidly turned into SEPSIS
October 1, 2015: Got super duper fever, IV antibiotics including vancomycin and others
October 2 - 5, 2015: antibiotics give me acute kindey failure - leaving me with 13% kidney function - emergency main line is installed, get haemodyalsis started that very day. Kidney biopsy reveals minor damage due to 25 years of Type 1 (auto immune) diabetes - but also reveals certain antibiotics are NOT my friends ever again. In a week and a half dialysis and medication REMOVE 35 POUNDS OF FLUID! (that has yet to return, hope it does NOT!) no WONDER I'd had a heart attack!
October 28, 2015: sent back home with a 'main line' installed in my neck/chest for further haemodyalisis treatments every 3 days.
November 16, 2015: am readmitted with chest pains to larger hospital, still receiving haemodyalisis but kidney function is improving rapidly! YAY!
November 17 -18?, 2015: Angiogram is performed, three stents are put in my left anterior descending coronary artery... in the way tiny outlaying corners, cardiologist is very excited to see no permentant damage, rest of heart looks FANTASTIC (especially for someone who has had Type 1 diabetes as long as I have - or so he tells me). I am LUCKY- *this* time (and thank heavens!)
November 20,2016: Home for GOOD this time!!! The healing can begin. I am weak, easily tired, and still on haemodylisis, but it is clear that I will not be for much longer! (MORE yay!)

Sometime in December: Main line is taken out, kidneys are BACK TO 100%!

But oh... the year wasn't done with me yet!

Feb.?, 2016: Gallstone attack and hospitalization. I have attacks every week or so for 4 weeks and it's diecovered we can't operate to take out my gallbladder unti a minimum of 6 months have gone by due to needing copious amount of super duper blood thinners to prevent clots in my brand new shiny stents! I severely limit my sodium and fat intake and am having about 4 low blood sugars a day due to not being able to eat much, each low blood sugar COULD possibly give me another heart attack. Things are tense.

For the next 6 months (!) I struggle with my blood sugars and get a handle on them pretty well, but the toll on my mental and emotional well being is difficult. I am also still recovering from kidney crap.

Sept. 2, 2016: gallbladder is removed lapiscopically without incident! YAY! True recovery can now begin!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

And there you have it kids... 2015 and 2016 in a nutshell. No WONDER I was always feeling tired... 35 pounds of fluid, and a partially blocked up heart. Guh.

BUT I am doing MUCH better, thank you, and there has been some doodling finally - I may even put a couple up at some point maybe.

HUGZ to everyone! I pray each and every one of you is ok and can enjoy this amazing life we live! <3

Happy Holidays!

Regardless of what other drama is going on in your personal life, I'm glad you're alright, and that your health is improving. When I didn't see you on DA for so long, I thought your eyesight went, what a relief to hear they saved your eyes and got you the pump you needed! Take care of yourself, hon!

Well I didn't actually get the pump, but I DID get the eye injections to tide me over till the doc said that eye was ready for laser surgery to cauterize the bleeds. The doc wrote it off, and last appointment was doing the sance of happy saying that there were no more bleeds! So, now I just have to somehow keep my blood sugars even on regular insulin therapy. bleh... ah well, nothing TOO much to really bitch about, at least my insulin is free!

Thank you SO much for the support and empathetic words sweetheart. They mean far more than you can know!

HUGE HUGZ!

I'm so glad they were able to repair the damage! I hope you can keep up on it. Are you doing better at that? Take care of yourself, you deserve better than this. ;)
