Living With Sickle Cell Anemia

The month almost over and I must admit I’m excited. If you have been on my JOURNEY since the year came in! I have been in hospital every month since September! God has heard my prayer for the month of MAY to be good for me! 🙂 I haven’t been feeling my best, but hey I’m not in hospital bed hook up to machine. I actually had doctor appointment today, it went good. I have to go out and get some blood work done, so I can see how good it really went 🙂 I was supposed to get some lab done on my birthday, but it seem they thought they was finna stick me instead of using my port! I don’t think so. Last time I got stuck to get blood lets just say I didn’t enjoy the pain of getting stuck! The nurse had the nerve to move the needle around in me, because well the blood had mind of its own! lol! Back to monday they nurse never came and it started raining hail and whatnot. I was like I’ll come back because I wanted to get home. Once I get my labs back, I’ll let you all know how it went. I know I have been quiet a little this month, havent been feeling my best but just praying that it didn’t send me to evil place (hospital). I had a few visit before the month came in, lets just say my patience with ignorant doctors, have run dry. Seem the ER keep getting more ignorant one’s than intelligent one’s. I don’t know!  My blood count has been holding its on like around 7.5 or 7.6. I would love for anything higher if you know like I know, but always please it’s not 6.

 

I have some good news, I finally start seen the Sickle Cell specialist next month. I will keep you all updated about how it goes. I’m so thankful for all the prayers you all have rolling in for me, it truly means a lot to me. Go truly Bless me with some good friends! I do hope all is well with each and every one of you!

  1. Sorry you have to deal with a active disease. But with prayer, as you know, you will get better. I am proof of that. I was on Oxygen this time last year. Since November 2011, I haven’t used oxygen. When they take your blood ask them to use a small butterfly needle. My veins are very thin and they poke around looking for blood too. I hate that. I’m keeping you in my prayers.

    1. Kim,

      your comment truly touch my heart. God Is Truly Good! I must say I don’t like needles, because even when they use it they have to dig because the blood will stop. I had a port put in Febrary, it has become my good friend. Thank you for the prayers, it truly means a lot to me. God Bless 🙂

    1. Thank You Gabby! 🙂 I didn’t get anything done today, they took forever just to get my paperwork and when I was explaining to them about do I need to register again or whatnot. Honestly, I have to be sick to get the ER to move quick. God forbid if I get sick and have to go upthere. You very welcome, I wouldn’t leave you lovely peeps out my JOURNEY! thank you for the hugs and love! sending them right back your way! God Bless 🙂
