Endocrinologist Appt 2-morrow-God willing it goes well-Prayers For Carmen Please

Good evening everyone... I decided I need a Smile and  This picture always does the trick! Hope it made you smile too! Ever have one of those days you wish you would never have gotten up.. Humm me to 2-day.
I always wake up at the puter reading bloggs and what do I see this morning first thing but Carmen saying she's in the hospital... Talk about panic mode... then I read on to see what was going on. Ok getting Appendix removed been there done that so I know the routine..Doesn't stop a mother from worrying especially since her health isn't the greatest. Finally got ahold of & talked to her Dad as he was on his way to the hospital. Fund out that the surgery went well and she was lucky they did the laproscopic surgery unlike mine where they actually cut me open...I was so relieved..Her recovery time will go so much easier for her and for that I'm Thankful!
But please do Pray that she gets out of the hospital tomorrow & for her speedy recover with no further complications from her other health issues..

Finally December 30th is here and I have my first appointment with the Endocrinologist. It has been the longest month in respect to waiting for this appointment to roll around.. I've done my best to try to enjoy the holidays and not think or worry about the three nodules they found on my Thyroid & how lousy I feel.
I've done a pretty good job of it most of the time with all of the Holiday going on's...but on those days that I was feeling really bad and at night when I would try to go to sleep it wasn't so easy.
I'm not sure what worries me more what they will find, if they will have to remove the thyroid, will I ever feel good again or the cost of everything.... Maybe all of it I suppose..
I got my Hospital Bills & all those other bills that come with a hospital stay and it's up to $8,000.00 so far.
I've applied for assistance for everything I can and god willing most of it will be covered cause I'd have to rob a bank to pay that bill off ..then tomorrow I go to another appointment that's gona cost up to $300.00 Holly Molly medical expenses are rediculous... I mean $8,000 for less then 48 hours in the hospital and all they did was an ultra sound on my thyroid, blood work & let me sleep in there bed...LOL...Oh yea they gave me some pill to make my body stop jerking all over the place.... That's it the pills cost $5000..
Oh well I guess ya got to do what ya got to do... All I want is to feel better so at least keep creating my crafts if nothing else...
I've been going crazy just sitting around feeling like crap....
So wish me luck with this Endocrinologist appt tomorrow...

I did get a call from Social Securty Disability today..All my paper work is in and then the guy who called me also filled out all the paper work over the phone and applied for SSI..suplimental Income for me. he said I should know within a week if I got denied or not... of course we discussed that most people are turned down/denied at least if that were to happen he says you make sure you appeal it immediately so that you don't lose the time you applied/don't reapply just appeal...well of course I will..
But my prayer is that I'm not going to be denied and I'll be able to receive it at least for a few months until I can get my health back on track...Help with all these medial bills...
Then he tells me that I qualify for Social Security in July so I should apply for it in May so that It will all be done by July..
Lord have mercy but I feel old and broken down and I'm not old at all.. it seems so hard to beleive that one day not so long ago I was feeling ready to tackle the summer cleaning houses and then with the snap of a finger my whole body just fell apart and turned on me...
To darned bad we can't just trade our bodies in for a new one like we do our cars and vans...LOL..

On a lighter side I have been able to get out in the shop over the past week and have actually created 6 beautiful gatherings.. I'll save those to share with later..

While you are praying for Carmen could you put in a few good words for me too...I want to beleive that I'm due for some really good news and better days ahead so a few extra prayers can only help.!!

God Bless you all for being such great friends!!

New Year Blessings


  1. AWWWWW how sweet, a deery bunny kiss. :) It did make me smile.

    I had a laproscopic procedure done and it went great. I don't remember having any recovery problems. I will pray for a speedy recovery for Carmen.

    Wow, those "$5000" pills are insane. :) I can't believe the cost of health care. When I had radiation back in 2005 I got a bill for $60,000 and that was only half of it!! My goodness.

    I hope you get approved for the SSI and everything. :)

    Good luck with your appointment tomorrow I will pray that it will go well and that they can help you feel like your ol' self again :)

    Take care, Janet W. (((BIG GOOD LUCK HUGS)))

  2. I will keep you both in my prayers..I wish you felt better and I hope you can get some good news tomorrow.)

  3. I hope everything goes good at your appointment. Maybe they can get you to feeling better for the new year. My prayers are with you and Carmen for a speedy recovery and relief.
    Country at heart

  4. Tonya
    I will keep both Carmen & you in my many thoughts & prayers~

  5. Gosh Tonya,
    I have tears in my eyes...I know the stress you are under with your health...not only does the pain wear you down but also the mental stress of it all...that can be just as bad on us as the pain itself.
    I PRAY FOR YOUR WELLNESS AND THAT THE SSI will kick in immediately and you don't have to strange is it that some people can just ASK for something and it's given and then there are those that have to beg on bended aching knee to receive it.

    Praying also for Carmen...I see she's doing well...I also had the CUT ME OPEN SURGERY...if only the newer procedure was available then...all those muscles were cut...OUCH...took forever to get back to normal...but then again it was 1961 and they kept you right down in bed for days. lol

    HAPPY NEW YEAR and a PAIN FREE YEAR as well.

  6. Tonya,
    Your still in my thoughts and prayers, so is Carmen. I hope the DR can find relief for you~ I know it's gotta be so hard on your mind as well as your body.
    Keep your chin up my friend! We all love and care about you.

  7. My dear friend, thank you for your well wishes for Mom and my tooth. Now I am sending prayers and well wishes up for you. I just know all will be well with your SSA and SSI and the Dr. appt too. I like your idea of trading in our bodies like we do our cars. LOL. Well friend you have a good day and keep us posted.


  8. Praying for you and Carmen too.
    Keep a positive outlook. All that paper work and hoops to jump through isn't any fun.
    hugz to you,

  9. I will be praying for your too! I like that idea of trading in our bodies, I would have a slim, sleek and fast one, right now!!! lol...
    I hope everything turns out for you, my friend and that the new year brings you good health and many blessings!

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

  10. Sending many prayers for you and Carmen as well! What an adorable pic of the deer and bunny, just melts my heart:)

  11. Hi Tonya,
    It's 5:30 on Friday and I'm wishing there was already good news on here from you. I'm going to think my most positive thoughts for you until I hear.
    I hope the SSI will come through right away. I love your positive attitude about only wanting it until you can get back on track. You are amazing! (And a hard worker by nature - we can all tell.)
    Prayers heading up for you right now!
    P.S. Can't wait to see the new gatherings you've created. :)

  12. Tonya,
    Keeping you and Carmen in my thoughts and prayers.
    Hoping everything goes well for you.
    Love the pic of the deer and buuny.

  13. Hope by now you have some good news and I have been praying for you every night and will continue to do so forever. Praying for Carmen does help that she is younger I think.
    Can't wait to see some of your new gatherings and since we are having a heat wave tomorrow I will be making a trip back to the eye Dr to get my 3rd new pair of glasses and then out to the garage to go through some more of my collection to make some gaherings (wish me luck) hard to find enough items to put together that go together where I live..we might try hitting a few auctions on the 7th of Jan..maybe I can find some good boxes of junk huh?
    Take care

  14. Bovine supplements are effective products for low thyroid. My senses sharpened and so far no more migraines. I was hoping that the benefit keep pouring in as I continue taking it.


I'm so Blessed that you stopped by & shared your thoughts with me today! Reading your comments always makes me Smile!
