The PA at the Jemsek clinic told me to go back on septra again and take carafate for the pain. I have tried septra once yesterday (horrible chest/reflux like a knife in my chest pain) Didn't sleep for the pain. Tried another one this morning. My chest again feels like a knife point in my chest. I will call tomorrow. I will NOT take this again. In the meantime, I have to suffer with this until I can get it stopped. Once started, it doesn't want to go away. Now I'm wishing for the IV's again. I know with my thick blood and the past clots that is not an option, but at least I didn't have this horrible pain from from iv's .
I'm back on the amoxicillin 1000 X3.
It has been a most horrible day which started last night. No sleep/pain. Then I had promised my 80 yr old Aunt I'd take her and do some things. She doesn't have anyone willing to help her. There are alot of other nieces and nephews but none willing to do anything. I have been trying to help her for the last several years. and she lives on the other side of the county. Her health is really bad. She lives by herself. I helped her put her affairs in order. This has been a big worry for her. But she can be a short tempered/ snappy person. I had to pray for patience and will need it in the days ahead. I hope I can find a place close by that she might can move in. I would love to put a camper on my property for her, but my county is so restricted, I can't do that.
Also, please say a prayer that Dr Jemsek will have the words of wisdom he needs when he goes back before the medical board Thurday for the conditions. I talked with him for a while Saturday afternoon, and he really needs everyones prayers.
