COME OVER AND LETS CHAT...A POST FROM FUDGE

I have been watching for you all...come in get cozy , this might be a long post
Good Evening to all our sweet visitors...Lil RAGGEDY is feeling a bit under the weather , as she's trying to adjust to new meds...so it is I ...blog kitty Fudge here to save the day and invite all you MEWVALOUS friends in for a visit.


In previous posts ...mom has shared her recent procedures and medical struggles with you...though her ultrasound was normal ...her pap was NOT ...which warranted another procedure called a colposcopy ( biopsy)  ...the Dr took 3 samples ...all 3 came back severely abnormal and showed signs of possible cervical cancer...so the following week mom underwent another procedure called a cone biopsy , d & c , and cauterization...which Dr said would not only allow him to see the extent of cancer but just might remove all of it and she wouldn't need any additional treatment :) ...when they got in there they ended up taking more than they had planned and froze some cells outside and left stitches inside and out...this was done on a Wednesday. AND BY THIS POINT ...WE ARE LOSING OUR MINDS AND GOING A TAD BIT MAD!! 
Well the following Monday she went back to the Dr...he had good news and bad news...The bad being the samples were plum full of carcinoma in situ and she was going to now require a full open hysterectomy...the good news being... as of now they believe this should get it all and she shouldn't require further treatment!!! PRAISE GOD!!!  SO SURGERY IS SET FOR APRIL 10 th , your prayers are always greatly appreciated...

Mom she's a fighter ...but she's worn down...she has had 6 procedures in 7 weeks with a terrible cold on top of it the past 2 weeks...on top of her lupus,fibromyalgia and everything else she battles daily. But her biggest concern is myself and Princess. So to keep her mind occupied , she's doing what she loves ...she snuggles us BUNCHES and sews her lil raggedy heart out when she can...the rest of the time she's just been resting. Mom would like to remind everyone to get those yearly pap tests and for you to remind all the ladies your life to do so as well...IT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES .
Mom made this mad HARE from a vintage MOHAIR SHAWL ...he went quick to a new home

ISN'T MY LIL HUMAN JUST TOO CUTE IN HER NEW HAT AND BLING
I'm so glad you came to visit ...I sure have missed our time together. I hope you now understand why mom hasn't been posting or visiting...she wants to ...badly ...but she's just totally tapped out. Sending each of you lots of kitty kisses and many wishes for beautiful blessed days ahead...FUDGE !!

BUSIER THAN...

A 3-LEGGED CAT IN A SANDBOX...LOL Good Morning to all,I hope this post finds each of you warm and well! It is a Blustery morning here in Ohio and that dreaded white stuff is once again falling from the sky and sadly another large winter storm is predicted for the weekend.  Now to bring you all current as to explain my brief lack of blogging dedication...my injections last Thursday were nothing more than pure torture and put me in bed for far too many days ,and I have to admit I'm dreading going tomorrow for the next one. The good news is my ultrasound results were Normal ( stop laughing , I too find it amusing when they think anything about me is such lol).Bad news is that means they still don't know what is causing my abdominal pain and weight loss...however thanks to all my recent steroid injections,I'm plumping up again rather quickly :/. In other news...Fudge is LAZY, Princess well she's just something, and we are currently under attack by squirrels begging for treats, I evicted my Mr, I'm rearranging my homestead, I have finished several new works and have many in process(please visit my GOODES tabs at the top of page often as I am always adding things and don't always post them in my regular posts), other than that ...i am just impatiently waiting for Spring to arrive. What have you been doing to pass the long winter days? I apologize to all for not visiting this week on your blogs I have just been too distracted but promise to catch up this weekend while I'm in bed recovering. Today I'm sharing a lil bit of Spring in my hallway. It's time for me to head into the studio and get my day going, wishing each of you a wonderful weekend filled with Love ...and until we meet again ...I'll always be just a lil raggedy Angie . HUGS

MEDICAL MAYHEM...

This morning's freezing fog MADE beautiful frost on the trees

This morning's sunrise
 Good Monday Morning to all, today since so many have inquired in regards to my health I am going to try and bring everyone up to speed the best I can. Last week I went to the dermatologist about a few skin issues I was having, he diagnosed me with severe eczema and rosacea and prescribed 3 New meds(which haven't been filled yet because insurance isn't wanting to cover them due to being very expensive)...he also froze  several growths on my eyelids, I was told if they went away after they were skin tags if not we would wait on my latest blood work results cause they could be caused by extremely high cholesterol and I would continue to get more if untreated...if the latter being the cause makes me 85-90% more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke:( ...A year ago I suffered a mild heart attack ...so now to just hurry up and wait.And freezing didn't do a thing.
Well Friday I had myself a much overdue appt with the GYN Dr for the routine girly check up...and just as I think wow that was simple and routine and finally over...the Dr. Instructs me to dress and meet him in his office...sigh...he informs me that he's ordering an ultrasound to check for growths and abnormalities or organ placement issues...I will be having the ultrasound this Wednesday. 

One of my latest designs I'm working on in the studio

As many of you know a year ago I underwent my second back surgery in two years, the surgeon refused to put me through therapy as he felt I had a hip joint injury when the xrays came back clear he ordered an MRI which insurance refused to approve so as a temporary fix he sent me to a pain management Dr for injections in hopes of providing some temporary pain relief...which I underwent in January under sedation...they provided no relief...so at my follow up visit the pain Dr has now ordered two more injections ...these will be done in office without sedation directly into my tail bone :( ...to say I'm dreading it is an understatement...as the last ones put me in bed in extreme pain for 3 days...I get the first this Thursday the second the following Friday. Today I met with a new rheumatologist and had great hope, as I am tired of being sick and tired and though I have been pretty much med FREE for over two years, I feel my diseases progressing and the pain is constant and intense and severely interfering with my daily activities and I may now need the meds.Let's just say I left this morning's appointment bawling my eyes out very disappointed and frustrated...the new Dr. Has the bedside manner of a snapping turtle and no compassion nor any interest in any development or concern I have...so after 5 years of countless tests and painful procedures I am no better off or  further ahead then I was when I started this journey. She's keeping the fibromyalgia diagnosis but dismissing all the rest and refusing to give me the meds I was on when my insurance ran out 2 years ago and blaming everything on my back injury. I'm heartbroken but know that the Lord will lead me to where I need be in my life and he only gives the toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. So my friends if you could keep me in your prayers I would greatly appreciate it...as I still have a very long rough road ahead of me and many decisions and plans to make as I do still have a child to raise, a roof to keep over our heads and many other worries and concerns. Until PROGRESS is made I'll be in my studio battling the pain and heartache by losing myself in my work as I REFUSE to let this nonsense beat me. Wishing each of you a healthy HAPPY day and until we meet again ...I'll always be just a lil raggedy Angie.Hugs
