I just wanted everyone to know I am missing all of you.
Sorry if I'm having a hard time keeping up wth messages and posts.
After having a wonderful holiday I came back full of life.
But the HE episodes are taking longer to recover from. As many of you know personally, I often wake up scared because I don't know how much time has passed, especially if it's nighttime. My partner is getting good at spotting the onset of them. He says it's like I'm sleep walking. I normally lay down and sleep or will sit and just rock back and forth till he stops me. I am often mean to him.
But I do find it curious that my body somehow knows to get up and use the loo. Is that normal? I don't eat, but my partner makes sure I take my meds and drink a bit of water. Then I might still be shaky for a few days, trying to recover.
I just wanted to update everyone, I'd hate to make any of my friends worry.
And pls forgive me if I don't respond to Any responses. I will do my best.
My kidneys are also being wacky, so they took me off the 10 milligrams of water pills to get rid of all the water weight. I lost 11 lbs of fluid in my legs in two weeks from that. But now they are saying since the shunt is flowing so well I should stop unless it comes back. They don't warn you that that is another possibility..swelling of fluid in the lower extremities and upper. But they should.
Cheering everyone on and sending all my love hugs and kisses!
Kimberly your American Pickle!
