My girlfriend is very very sick. In fact in the space of four weeks she’s been admitted to hospital three times and each time it’s serious. She has a demonic thyroid and all the hormones that it is releasing is having a grave affect on her heart, whereby it’s racing three times faster than the normal heart rate.
She has two sets of doctors, one set looking after her thyroid and the other her heart. The problem is that they are NOT talking to each other and this is where the problem lies.
She has now also been diagnosed with Diabetes 2.
All these problems and doctors keep wanting to send her home (basically because she’s on a pension).
She’s back in hospital for the 4th time and this time they are decided on how to take the thyroid out because her heart can’t take much more. BUT If they put her under they cant guarantee that her heart will be fine.
So? This is my dilemna – she could die. Simple. Well not so simple but she’s my best friend and I’m her power of attorney and yet I don’t seem to feel anything. I care – seriously I care but in the state that she is in now I just want it to be over for her. I don’t want her suffering any more but then again her mind is still with us and she’s got the best sense of humour, in fact, she keeps me going most of the time and after the last six months I certainly don’t need any more upheavals.
But! I don’t want her suffering any more than she already has.
I’ve just got a phone call and they are going to give her massive doses of drugs in the hopes of getting her heart rate under control and then on Monday they will attempt to remove the thyroid.
Here’s hoping they can get it out without killing her. No. There’s no hoping. They will get it out and we can get back to getting her home and out of danger. I’m so sick and tired of doctors and I wish they would just make sure the patient is well before sending them home.
I’m not an unfeeling cad and I do love her dearly but I’m not to the drivelling idiot stage and I don’t think I’ll ever get there. She’s at least had such a positive affect on me over the last 20 years but I believe that she’ll be around me forever. We call each other soul mates and finish each other’s sentences but we’re just the best of friends and for that and her I am truly grateful.
She’s my best friend.
Get well Twiggy!
