Meet some of the family

Well we made it through another week. My oldest son had an emptying study done, this was to see how fast or slow food and liquid travels through the belly. I didn't know what it would come out to, but the solid food study came back fine. We are waiting for the liquid results, hopefully it will be fine too. I took him to the Dr after his dad was diagnosed with celiac disease. My oldest was tested 2 years ago with blood work, he tested positive. But when we went through 2 different biopsies, they both came back negative. We have changed Dr. and this one says there may not have been enough biopsy' taken. So because the 2nd biopsy's  results may not be correct because he still had food in his tummy. This leads us to the hole emptying stuff. So, we went and sat at the hospital and had 2 different times and he had both done and he did well.

I hope to hear from the Dr next week. But I know I will be busy. My 2 older boys started wrestling, and because I don't trust just anyone with my oldest care. I am there at every practice, there to make sure they are paying attention and the the oldest doesn't fall low and not feel it. G (my oldest) went to the nurse today and he was 66 and he didn't even feel like he was low. This morning was the same way, he woke up at 72 (now he wasn't technically low but he was right on the boarder) and he didn't feel anything. I am thinking I need to start saving money and when there is a lab puppy maybe next year, buy one. I know they are great dogs, and they can sense those kind of things. But I will have to see.

My Big G ( husband), I took him to the Dr and they need to check his neck the arteries to see if they are flowing correctly. I am so scared, he has had 1 heart attack (he was 36) they put 1 stent in, he had to go back to get 2 more stents put in shortly after. In 2010 he had open heart surgery, a quad bypass, and then just a week ago he had another stent put in. I was also told today he has a blockage of 40-50%, but they don't do anything until they are over 80%. So I am scared I am going to loose him. I have been beside this man though drug abuse (his & he choose me over them) and through heart disease, diabetes, and alcohol. I can't explain the stress I feel on a daily basis, and I have no one to talk to. Since his surgery in 2010, he has been diagnosed with PTSD, bipolar, OCD, depression and he has severe panic attacks. I try to keep him calm and safe while he is having an attack. I feel so helpless, I can't help him I have no clue how to help.

My Middle son (C) is having trouble with him teeth. He had to have a cap put on and now he may need the tooth pulled. Luckily it is a baby tooth that will fall out anyway. But I still don't like him in pain. And again there is not much I can do. He is also having tummy pains, I am beginning to think it may be celiac too, but I know if I bring it up to Big G he will through a fit. He thinks I am a hypochondriac. But I just know I get feelings about stuff and I just know. I knew Big G was sick before he knew it.

My little son (J) has not been without his problems either. He has milk intolerance's, it gives him upset tummies. He has slipped up and grabbed the wrong cup and drank it. He has also been having vision troubles. I have an appointment but not until March or April. I don't understand why I have to wait...
