The dog ate the left over jellie beans!

OK, I can do this! I have a migraine, am doing surgery May 15, have four kids at home. One of them left a bedroom door open, another left leftover easterbasket 1/4 full of small jellie beans (about a half a bag) on floor of bedroom where door was left open. My Schnauzer "Schnuffy" - less than a year old, snuck into the bedroom ATE the leftover jellie beans. Then she ran around the house and barfed in FOUR different places on my carpets in two different rooms. You'd think she isn't big enough to have that much barf, but the jellie beans must have made her thirsty, as she barfed places the size of dinner plates, with vivid colors!

I was on my hands and knees with this stupid migraine pounding, and started to cry. Got it done, with kids help. THEN ds age 9 comes into the bedroom where I am getting ready to lay down and he has a carton of strawberry yogurt open in his hand with a spoon as a "gift" to console me...then he accidentally drops the open pink yogurt, it flows down the side of my bedspread, onto the light grey carpet and the carton upside down on top of it all!

Now...mind you I have a migraine I have tears flowing, my dh is gone for six days and comes back midnight the day before I go into the hospital...

I can do this...my poor dear ds age nine, almost went into tears...as I told him he didn't mean to make a mess, just like the dog didn't mean to barf up gallons of jellie beans all over the house! I could have yelled, but I held my tongue, his little lip quivering.

The hospital stay is looking better everyday though. I just don't want him to remember me yelling and upset with him should i not make it through surgery...

am crying now. Am so scared I will die, is a very long surgery.

Oh, Sweetie,

(((Hugs))) to you. I fully understand the migraine thing = I'm having lots of problems with that now, due to a bad car wreck I had back in Jan. of this year. I was knocked out, had a concussion and a laceration in the back of my head, plus glass embedded in my rt. hand (surgically removed) and a fractured sternum (breastbone). Life gets so weird and uncanny at times, doesn't it? So sorry dh isn't there now to help you get through. I'm here for you, so hang in there. It's good that you handled things the way you did. When you have a migraine like that, it's so hard to handle anything, like dog vomit, spilled colored yogurt on your bedspread, etc., anything. It's hard just to think and function. I'm here for you, anytime. Feel free to private message me, e-mail me, I care and will answer asap. Just know you're not the only one going through these things. God bless, I'll be praying for you, too. By the way, Happy Mother's day - you deserve it and I'm sure you're a great mom.

Oh sweetie I believe you are going to make it just fine! I know it feels really overwhelming and scary now but things will change when you get into the castle on your big day.

Ya know how I deal with the craziness and the fears? I sort of pretend it's actually happening to somebody else. The minute I walk into the castle, I detach from everything. I just kinda let it go by, as if I'm watching someone else go through it in a very non-emotional way. I don't try to stop it or fight it or even understand it. By that time, they've done such a thorough job of making sure everything is in place that it runs like clockwork.... in fact it kind of goes by like a blur.

You get there, they weigh you, take your pulse and temp and bp, hand you a gown (or two - one to put on frontwards and one backwards), you climb onto the gurney and wait a bit... they hook you up to the IV... and I always ask ahead of time to get some versed at that point. Wonderful stuff, versed... if they give you enough you won't remember anything after that. If they give you a little less, you'll remember but you won't really care. Then the next thing you know, it's all over and you're waking up in Recovery. That's all there is to it!

Try to focus on preparing for after you get home... maybe you can even get the kids involved in helping you 'set up' your room for your homecoming. Also is there someone who can watch the kids for a couple of hours sometime this week, so you could maybe get away for a lunch with some girlfriends or something? Or take that last trip to WalMart (since as I'm sure you've read, WalMart is strictly off limits to new es).

I'm sorry you're feeling so stressed out. I know what it's like to be alone with kids and trying to get things done, as the world feels like it's falling apart around you... in our case it's usually a cat coughing up hairballs all over the rugs just as I'm trying to get out the door to take them to school. Just take a few deep breaths, say "I can get through this", and you will.
s,
-Linda

flowersam, it's going to be OK. I too had a nagging fear in the back of my mind I would not make it through surgery. Suspect every patient in there feels the same, or at least most of them. Pre-op is a highly volatile time, emotionally. One of the worst parts about the whole deal!

I am a migraine sufferer from way back. I still have an ovary, and at 11 weeks post op am still getting a good share of migraines. Am praying that gets better.

Anyway, as the poster child for migraines, I can offer you a couple tips that help me:
  • get to your nearest drugstore and get some B-Kool headache patches. (Not Migraine Ice, they are thinner and don't stay chilled as long.) As soon as you feel that headache coming slap a B-Kool patch on. They are thicker than M-Ice and stay chilled a good 4 hours.
  • This next one sounds goofy, but it works so well I told my neurologist about it : Get yourself a couple Baskin Robbins Cappucino Blasts and freeze them. When I have a migraine I immediately thaw one out and after about 1/3 of it, the migraine is either reduced to a more tolerable headache or gone completely! Must be the combination of cold and caffeine. Regular coffee or caffeinated pop doesn't do it. If I have nausea I have to wait, so I thaw it on the counter, it's drinkable in a couple hours. No nausea, I put microwave on low and that for about 30 seconds. Stir it with a spoon and you're good to go. I know it sounds crazy, but give it a try!

OKAY< DOG KENNEL, KIDS GRANDMAS! Take a break for your self, if only to get uninterupted sleep or go shopping for your jammies or whatever....... Suffer migraines also, I go to my chiropractor for an adjustment. Pain leaves instantly, suffer for 25 years with them.

Flowersam, don't you hate it when your life suddenly turns into a sit com. I don't mean to laugh, but the vision of jelly bean barf and a precious little child bearing a messy gift made me smile. If you had all that on video it would be worth $100,00 on America's Funniest Videos. I have found that some of the most awful out of control moments in my life have become some of the funniest stories I tell.

Think of it this way. Your time, obviously, is going to be occupied with all the circus around you. Maybe it will keep you from having those pre-op jitters so bad!

Good luck and look forward to good health. Give that 9 year old a hug for me.

SHe is absolutely right. You need to start keeping a journal. Years down the road, you'll look back and crack up.
