Lil Updates: Laura, School, Medical Issues

Updates: Laura, School, Medical Issues:

My Lil Updates:

Medical Issues: The GI issues that have been keeping me from work, etc are getting better! ( Read about my GI issues here. ) I'm  going to see a GI doc tomorrow to figure out what all is going on. I know most people hate going to the doctor, but I'm always happy to go. I like to know what's going on and catch problems before they become bigger issues! So Wednesday I see the GI specialist and Thursday I go back to Dr. B's for the Evaluation for the Clinical Trial. The first meeting didn't go to well, so hoping this Thursday is better and I can start the trial! (read here about the clinical trial mess) So glad this will all be sorted out this week!

School: I'm officially Medically Withdrawing from the semester. I missed 4 weeks total in classes due to hospitalizations and IVs. The school has told me I'll be on the 3 year plan (going part time)...However, I'm not okay with that, because 3 years is too long for my program. Plus, If I have another medical problem in the next 3 years I'll be even farther behind. So I've decided I need a program that is more flexible. I think I found one, I can apply this spring and start in the summer or fall :-) We'll see. First, I need to get my appeal for tuition reimbursement.. I don't want to lose any money over this. (fingers crossed)

Laura: Laura has been in the hospital for the last month, She is currently receiving 4 IV meds, She has a lung infection, and her kidneys are responding negatively to the meds. They are watching her closely to make sure her kidneys aren't failing. And she is still in the process of evaluating her for a Transplant. She is very tired, on oxygen 24/7, and her lung function few days ago was 18%. I don't know a lot new, but I'm trying to keep informed. (here is the website to donate to help her out: Laura's TX costs!  (Laura and I's friendship goes way back, scroll down to the last post to read about it or click here)

I just wanted to keep you all updated!

  1. Thanks for all of the support while I get my business up and running. I can't wait to see you Saturday. I hope that Laura gets new lungs. I am so sad for her because I remember her as a little girl and she was always so sweet and loving to you.
    Love you,

    I've done the medical withdrawal before. You should get your money back. Fingers crossed.

  3. Thanks! I'm hoping for a reimbursement, but it is so much paperwork and signatures.

    And Mom: I Know, its so hard. She is a fighter. Hopefully they get her listed soon! She is getting her package from me tomorrow!
