What can I say Grossmont Hospital is great! My father has been a patient for the last few days due to back surgery; the BIG question is where to rehabilitate? In addition, will my dad go? I am glad I have been running “The Hayliegh Project” one of the services I offer is to act as liaison for people in the hospital who need an advocate to help make decisions for them. Now I can help my parents who had no idea that my dad was going to need extra medical help and / or where to place him?  From the work I have done, I knew right away, where I needed my dad to go and which was the nicest facility.  I also knew we had to jump and be proactive asap. Our caseworkers Will and Carl couldn’t resist a pic w/ Chloe and who couldn’t resist a pic with them!  We also met Daria who works in nutrition not only was she kind, but she couldn’t stop smiling because of Chloe.

Sweet little note: I said, “Dad I know you want out of here and I want you out of here too.” I said, “Dad I cannot even handle ER and when I leave ER I cannot get home fast enough”, so I said, “Dad you have to dial it in and work it out, so you can get home. This means move your muscles!” He was so cute he started lifting his legs in the hospital bed saying, “Kim I moving my legs and I have to dial it in!.” I shared with him how proud I was of him… Go dad!

Starting Detox to Kill Anaerobic Bacteria From Hospital

Detox

Reason for detox is I ended up with a multiple of bacterial infections in my body after major surgery. I fear getting sick repeatedly and hospital visits. People say, “Have faith” or “You will get through this.” I have been through misery for 6 months now and it doesn’t seem to end with that said I will be doing an Oxy cleans. The cleanse will kill all Candida and anaerobic bacteria from surgery. It can keep resurfacing inside my body and become resistant to antibiotics.I mentally having to prep my mind around a major detox I am doing.  I keep telling myself if I can make it through the major surgery and everything I have been through I can do this.

First day on detox. Take on empty stomach, then wait three hours no food at all after three hours. Take a liquid Oxy and wait 30 minutes to eat. Repeats process three hours later around dinnertime or, before bed on empty stomach.

  • Finished Pilates Machine workout and had a yummy kale, grapefruit and pine nut salad.
