BuffyBear's Journal, 16 July 2012

Am on pins and needles this morning. DH has his doctors appointment to discuss results of blood work (RE: last week's journal - he had a hemorrhage in his left eye).

I'll feel much better after he is diagnosed because at least we'll know what we are dealing with. I made the mistake of looking up the possible causes on the internet but I shouldn't have - that only gave me a big long list of stuff to worry about!

I never got back to my finish my Food Diary yesterday. We spent the afternoon at DH's brother's and then, after we got home we had company. I ate way too much but it was all good food so I'm not going to fret about it. Besides, we both needed the break.

Buffy I know exactly how you are feeling, but I've got to wait 2 weeks until the 27th before DH goes to kidney specialist. You will feel better after he is diagnosed, knowledge is power. Same here been looking up causes etc on the internet, maybe that's not such a good idea :)

Notfast - I appreciate that. I am so glad that your Hubby is taking matters seriously and getting to that specialist. Whatever it is, treatment earlier rather than later has got to be a plus!

Breaks are alright, especially when you have bigger things to worry about. I hope the diagnosis is better than expected and curable. Take care

Probably just a bit of stress eating yesterday....at least that's what I did prior to my own doctor's appt. I know it's your DH and not you, but you get my drift. Dr. Internet can be really helpful but can also scare the cr*p out of you! You'll hear something shortly and then you can take a deep breath and face doing what's necessary to get his eye fixed. Hoping you get good news....

Sending positive thoughts your way-hoping the results are minor!

Praying for DH, Buffy. We too often anticipate the worst and go through a lot of unnecessary anxiety. You'll be there to get him through whatever it is, and that's what counts.

Lindsay, DK, Bren and GG - Appreciate your messages. The Lab did not do the sugar test (as ordered) so we are starting all over again! Tomorrow is another day.

Oh Buffy....what a mistake to make! Oh well....DH will just have to fork over a little more blood. I guess SOMEONE at the lab hadn't quite transitioned off of "weekend-mode". Hopefully, better luck on Tuesday....or Wednesday..... :)
