Chloe’s World

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!

Chloe Goes To A baptism

Chloe goes to a baptizim

Yesterday Chloe and I were honored to take our friend Patti to be baptized in her church at Shadow Mountain. The message and joy she shared with the congregation was spectacular. This is only part of what she read to all of us.

“Pastor Jeremiah introduced me to a kind, loving God. He taught me God loves me, he always has and always will.”

“John 8:32 and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”

Finding peace and acceptance in a painful world

March 5, 2014

How do you keep your dignity when your mind and body have been maxed out?

I am amazed at Chloe’s attention to detail about my health.  I started the Medrol pack today even thought it can cause a lowered immune system and for me it means oral thrush for many months. Thought? I am on low dose naltrexone (LDN) which stimulates the immune system.  Maybe the  Medrol pack could help?

I have been on my knees as I cry to God for his help.

I felt well enough to take Chloe out on a simple walk. Pain suppressed lightly due to the steroid, but Chloe spotted (not walking well) right away and would not go any further.

Medrol pack is an intense steroid that works quickly and it helps inflammation. Usually makes a person feel like super woman at least for me! Were is she?

It is now after 10pm and my sacro hurts and my stomach stabbing pain is flared up causing pain, swelling and loose bladder.

My Bible, “James” 1:12 talks about trials and temptations.  Testing of faith develops perseverance. I am at that place. In tears I have humbly presented myself to God and still no relief.
