Tired and sickly

8 Aug

Hello, Rosie’s mum here again. Rosie has asked me to post for her to explain that since she last posted she’s been as tired and exhausted as it is possible to be. She has been having some problems with her pump thing which gives her continuous pain and nausea relief. Or at least, is supposed toย 


sorry, was interrupted by a slight drama then. Rosie dropped her hair brush and thought she could get out of bed and ย kneel down to get it, but couldn’t bend her legs properly because they are still so swollen and then couldn’t get back up onto her bed. She’s ok now though. (And before you think what a horrible mother, she asked me to tell you about that too).

Anyway, the pump has had a few problems so Rosie has had more nausea than she should have, which has meant she’s had to have extra anti sickness stuff, which makes her sleep. Still, she can report that all the out of hours services work very well to sort these problems out.

    Oh dear, not good. But hopefully the pump is working as it should now and Rosie is getting the right mix of meds.
    Hope tomorrow is a better day and thanks once again Jo for the update and to Rosie for thinking of her readers even when she’s feeling so rough. Love to you all. x

    How very irritating and frustrating for Rosie. While she’s stuck with swollen legs and so tied to her bed, is it worth getting a “reacher”? There are various sorts..telescopic, suction and ordinary. You can get them over the Internet or in shops for the disabled.
    If you rig up a system of mirrors as well, Rosie would be able to see what she had dropped!Hope things soon improve, Regards, Jill

    Morning. I do hope Rosie gets her pump sorted. Nothing like having something to help which doesn’t.
    Hope sleep helps too.

    Hello Jo and Rosie,

    I really hope the pump gets sorted soon, make sure you get plenty of rest. Let me know when you are feeling up to a visit but please take care of yourself first, I know you must be exhausted and I can visit anytime to suit you, I’m only in Ledbury. Meanwhile it’s great that you are both still able to keep the blog up to date by a joint effort, judging by all the comments I can see there are so many friends and strangers sending their love and support, and I hope it helps to keep you positive when frustrating things happen.

    Sending lots of love, positive vibes, I hope you feel less nauseous asap.

    Ew no you certainly don’t want that vomity feeling eh, hope they get the pump sorted out soon. Nicer day out today, quite breezy here still but dry and sunny so far. Took Mum into town in her wheelchair and bought up Marks and Sparks, cor a manual wheelchair and Yeovil town centre just don’t mix though! Long hill up but a much easier drive back down!

    Dear Rosie, it was lovely to see the photo of you looking so bright and I’m sorry to hear the last 24 hours have been difficult for you. Thinking of you and your family, especially you Jo, and wishing for it all to be sorted soon. You’re a star ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    Hi Rosie – not sure what I’m going to say?
    I just wanted you to know I continue to read your blog and continue to be blown away by your strength of character and fight.
    Thinking about you –

    sorry to hear the pump’s playing up. when they work they are great though.

    Jo, as if anyone would think that you are a horrible mother – the very idea.

    hope the pump situation improves soon, take care Rosie and team Kilburn, thinking of you and sending positive vibes : -) x

    Hi Ro, Jo, Chris and Toby too,

    Sorry to hear Rosie was feeling very tired yesterday Jo, fingers crossed Rosie will try and remember the new bed is higher and it is harder to get back into it than her older bed.

    Yep, Rosie, swollen legs takes time to come down, even if like me you wear TED Stockings, still takes time to reduce any swelling.

    Sorry to hear Rosie auto med pump needs fine tuning, hard for her medical team to get the correct mixture, may be they need to add her favourite fruit drinks and food into the feed tube. Hope things settle down soon and Rosie strength soon returns to normal, if there is such a thing in her busy life style.

    Big hugs Rosie,
