An emergency surgery and more weight gain...
Tuesday, May 29, 2012
Oh my ... where do I begin? Well Thursday morning I went into shock again and ended up being hospitalized all day only to find out that the infection had gotten worse and spread. I was rushed in an ambulance to another hospital for an emergency surgery where they placed a plastic tube in my stomach to separate the kidney stone from my fluids so that the infection would not spread. At this point it was a life threatening situation.
As if the horrendous pain and the stress of the situation wasn't bad enough (it was also my 7 year old son's birthday and I didn't get to see him), I was frantically stressed about the Sat wedding I was to photograph. I was in so much anxiety over telling the couple and what I would do. Everyone just kept telling me not to worry about it and just concentrate on my health and getting better. Easier said then done. Clearly.
So I arrived home Friday afternoon and immediately got in contact with my clients having to leave a message on their answering machine. I was willing to put my doctors strict orders aside, and my health at risk and photograph just the ceremony and formals for them but that I was unable to photograph the full ten hour day as I would have to take my meds at suppertime and I would be unable to work after that point. If they did decide to find someone else for the whole day I would of course reimburse them for the full amount.
To say that I was verbally abused and assaulted is ... a great understatement. The groom yelled at me, accused me of "faking" my medical issues, belittled me and threatened to take me to court numerous times among many other things that brought me to tears. That was when he started cruelly laughing at me, and I was in such disbelief that I hung up. I just couldn't believe someone could treat me so inhumanely. Unreal. Oh, and did I mention it was my birthday?
Needless to say Sat, I felt guilty and unhappy, unsettled and having a hard time accepting that I needed to rest. It has just been awful, a hellish week like no other!
Getting back on track with my diet plan is going to be difficult with all of the stress and of course the high carb birthday dinner my mom through for me tonight!
I still have another surgery Monday and I am just really looking forward to getting it all over with, I can't wait to feel like myself again and put all of this business with my clients behind me.
