Paws For Andrea
As a teenager I was diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis, Primary Immune Deficiency, and other digestive diseases. This means that my body fails to efficiently fight off infections, I have constant nausea and abdominal pain, and I occasionally become lightheaded and faint. I have been injured in the past due to fainting. And it is even more dangerous when I am home alone. Now, I rely more on my walker, my wheelchair, and my family members to make sure I get around safely. Any nutrition and medications I need are received through an IV port in my chest.

Thank You Hazelton’s who sent these to me in the hospital. I wanted to post a thank you right away but I was just so sick I couldnt pull my head up off the bed. But I really enjoyed them. The roses were beautiful and the smell heavenly. Thank you for sending them and thinking about me!

Day 13 in hospital. I am hoping that this week I will be able to come home. I guess my ulcers that are in my stomach and intestine are very big. So they are healing slowly and while they heal taking medication by mouth is impossible due to the burning, pain, vomiting and nausea. Luckily I am feeling so much better than I was 13 days ago. Today I tried to take my pain medication by mouth and it failed. I am praying that tomorrow when I try again it will be a success. I am trying to keep this post positive but I just feel so beat up. Emotionally, physically and mentally. I am just trying not to break. So I will continue to reach for God. And I could still use prayers.Thanks everyone for helping and sending love!
