Hello welcome to my world! Im still in hospital, and lets just say what a hell of a way to start my morning! My count has dropped 5.2, seem I had to get threatened to even consider transfusions. My options were have heart attack or my kidney failure! Lastnight was rough on me, seem my knee got swollen on the leg just had surgery on. Cant move it much or put pressure on it. They mention trying pull fluid from it, lets just say your girl flipped out. That was big ole needle and it didnt sit well with me. Mri didn’t sit well with me!! Idk how my lil heart handle all that stress lastnight. Right now im in some pain, so I shall end it here and hopefully update tomorrow! Thank you all for comments and prayers! God Bless

It have been awhile since I mention my illness,to it surprise me last week and broke my spirit at same time. But I know God is all I need.It started with me getting nasty cold, which turn out be bronchitis with lil pneumonia! Im like serious on bronchitis, just went through it the month before.I couldn’t hardly move,so that was my notice to make my way to evil place! God Bless me with some good nurses and doctor while in ER!  I did have a long wait, which my poor body hated, and germs spread! You would think peep would cover mouth,but nope! As you all know, im finally home since MondAy afternoon! Lets just say,my body is in for a fight of my life again. I rather not go into detail. If I refuse to take my meds, im killing myself!But come on, all meds have bad sides of them! I almost went back to hospital Tuesday, I was in so much pain! Hurt move,talk, think, cry! God gave me strength to fight without the hospital! Im still in some pain, but not as bad as early in the week! Good weather, and I cant enjoy it:( I have update doctor appointment next week, plus to get recheck on labs and xray really? Labs understabdable, but umm u sent me home saying things look better! No smart comment at the moment! Turn out I needed antiobodies, which wasn’t mention to me before you discharge me! Thinking I need a new primary doctor! Im lil lazy to do the searching right now, but dont feed me bs and then have to eat your words later 🙂 All the prayers,comments touch my heart in so many ways. I cant have transfusions, to everything is cleared. I left hospital at 7.2! Another rough journey, im praying ill make it through once again. Makes you wonder how some people become doctors when you educationing them. I did have two big idiots as doctors.

Hey and welcome to my world. I have been in pain for a few days. Im In hospital, and hoping to go home soon. I know it won’t be with good news. Its been awhile since I been In hospital, and transfusions.  Right now my test came back to hurt my heart. I have a good doctor and some good nurses, had a problem with her lastnight. I have port for a reason and I don’t like when people try and bs me, talking about they can’t draw from it. So I gave the tech one chance and she didn’t want to do it, cause she knew the nurse was lying. Blood count has drop, its in the 7s, but still good for men but would love to be in the 8s. I hope everyone is well. I do have a feeling I’m forgetting so something, but I do update when it comes to me. God Bless

Day 3-5,Living With Sickle Cell Anemia

Hello and Welcome to my World, at this point of time. I’m still in the hospital, the last time I posted I ended up getting my transfusion Friday night. It actually took to about 5 or 6 the next morning. A long night. I was glad to hear they find my blood. I was so out of it by the time my doctor made it around to see me and talk to me before I got the transfusion, he was like I was hoping to make it over to see you before you got the meds. All I could do was laugh at him. I got some good sleep that night, believe that’s the first night I actually got some good sleep since I been in the hospital. I’m still hurting but not as much as I was hurting when I first came here. The same morning after the transfusion I was surprise to with x-rays at 7 in the morning, can you believe that?? I can’t! I was cold and still sleepy. They could’ve waited to I had some coffee in me before they got me in my bed, but they tech who came to get me was cool. I had her once before. We talked about school and whatnot. Today is Father’s day, I call me dad and told him Happy Father’s Day early this morning, he have been calling me all morning to check up on me and to see when I was coming home. As of right now I don’t know when I’m coming home. Maybe tomorrow. I havent seen the doctor yet, I’m pretty sure his spending time with his son and father today. I believe I don’t bored you all enough. Oh yea my blood count is looking oh so good right now, its 9.9. I hope and pray it stay that way. Seems my calcium is little low so I have to take pills for that and of course iron pills and I’m not feeling that if you know like I know. This morning when I woke up for them to take my bp, it wasn’t looking so good. they was low, she even double-check them to see if it would be differently. No can do. Ty for all the prayers and kind words you all bn leaving me. God Bless 🙂
