Please take this away

Im in pain…

Its not the normal period pain or the pain I’ve gotten so used to over the past year.. its also not just around my cuts that im sore…

Im sore all over and the pain meds aren’t helping anymore…

Whats worse is today I have been really sleepy (slept the day away) and my eyes see all fuzzy not to mention the fever thats been spiking the whole day. ..

Really hoping that its nothing serious – at leadt the pain in my shoulder is better


Ouchie-post op day 1

So yesterday I had my op, gynae is very happy with how it went. Im home and recovering just in a lot of pain!

Honestly it’s the worst pain I’ve ever had – even after natural birth, a c-section, laparoscopy, DNC, the Llettz procedure – I have never been in this much pain!!!

I feel battered and bruised on the inside!

So my gynae did a full laparoscopic sterilization,  endometrial ablasion and he also cauterised what we hope was the last of the endometriosis. 

I have to go see him in August again – after the Llettz I have to see him every 6 months – he’ll do another papsmear and then tell me if its all gone or if we should proceed with a different course of action…

As always I will keep you posted as to whats happening

For now im gonna curl up with my hot water bottle,  take some pain meds and watch some Harry Potter  

Have a great day 

My Monster was almost abducted!

Yesterday after getting my new phone (bye bye BlackBerry!!) We went to another shopping centre close to home to quickly get a couple of things needed at home. 

I started looking at some nice jackets- something I need with winter knocking- anywhoo …

Hubby came and showed me a jacket at the top of the railing (is that the right thing to call it?)

Next moment we realize monsterman isnt with us!

We ran through the shop trying to find him- he wasnt in the toy isle or with the baby stuff-  HE WAS MISSING!!

Hubby and I split up looking for your son in a panic-stricken-state is not recommend!

I went to security they got in touch with their camera room and they started tracking my son…
They found him still in thestore walking with a tall Caucasian male (NOT MY HUSBAND)

I freaked out completely! 

Security ran after this man followed him till the hardware section, where he must have noticed that they are on his heels and very nonchalantly turned to monsterman and told him to wait right there…. And he ran out of the shop…

I dont know if they caught him or not all I know is security gave me my son back! !!!
Something I’ll be forever grateful for-  this day could’ve ended so much worse!

I really am grateful to those security guys- without their quick action I might’ve not seen my son but luckily was reunited with him!!!!!

When we asked monsterman why he went with that “uncle” he said that the “uncle” offered him some sweets ….

Now monsterman knows that he shouldn’t speak to strangers and also not accept anything from them…  this guy bribed my son with chocolate- which child is gonna say NO to that?

Luckily this guy didnt touch monsterman in anyway, didn’t change his appearance and very luckily for us he didn’t get away with monsterman

I still have that bitter when-adrenaline-runs-out taste in my mouth

Parents be more aware please this guy literally took advantage of a split second when we didnt have our eyes on monsterman

I’m just really relieved that nothing happened to monsterman! 

its confirmed

CIN 3 cells are taking over in my abdominal area!

So my next procedure is booked for the 21st of May…

Doing a full Endometrial Ablasion and sterilization.

That’s all for now, I think I wasn’t really prepared for this news… I mean after Monster was born I always showed Cin 1 then last year August it showed Cin 2 and now I’m on Cin 3

Rather kill it all and stop having pain 24/7 – right?

discovery health – I’m fed up!

Let’s just say I’m not the least bit impressed by my medical aids in capability to communicate with me…

So beginning of April I emailed them my GP to Specialist referral form (turn around time according to them would be 2 days) 5 days later I get a SMS back saying “sorry but your email was unclear, please resend” so I fax it to them 2 days later…

And nothing… Not an email, SMS, fax, smoke signal or post dove to say ” Hi Mrs Viljoen, sorry but your form is still unclear, please resend”

Nope if it wasn’t for the fact that I called them to ask why I haven’t heard anything from them since the 9th and its the 20th already I wouldn’t have known that:

1) they don’t get my faxes
2) make promises they can’t keep

So when I spoke to Njabula on Saturday I was promised a call back to confirm that my form was received – that didn’t happen!

Last nite I spoke to another lady (who unfortunately speaks with such a bad accent that I had to really concentrate to hear what she was saying- I shouldn’t have to concentrate that hard it was a simple yes/no question) and all I wanted to know was if they received the fax I sent on Saturday….

The answer was yes, but again she advised that my fax was unclear…

So Discovery: What the heck am I supposed to do?
All your Call Centre Reps ask me to scan and email – sure would if I could but working the hours I do I don’t have the luxury to find a shop open that time of day/night…

I have a fax machine at home, but apparently that either sends it to you unclear or you just don’t receive it (for some magical reason even though I have a confirmation report saying it was sent) [and this isn’t the first time that my form magically just never reaches your offices]

So Discovery Health I ask you, what am I to do? How do I get this form to you without missing my appointment with my Gynae on Thursday?

kinda cant wait for the 25th

And not because its payday for a month that’s been Waaaaayyyyyyy too long but because its my follow up with my Gynae after the procedure in February…

I’m kinda scared and here’s why:
With my medical aid they send me emails regarding each claim that goes through; been seeing an alarming amount of pathology bills in recent days…

So does this merely mean that they have submitted their claims late or does it mean that they are still running different tests?

If its the latter I hope they get done by the 25th so my (gorgeous) gynae can give me answers…

On the one hand I’m ok with whatever he tells me and on the other I can’t wait to live my life period free!

Bring it on!!!

My Big Brave Boy
