My personal heath battle ❤️

Everyone has been asking what happened and what they can do to help... I am not one for asking or taking much help so this is a little awkward for me. I’m not one to be overly open with the daily struggles I have battled with in regards to my health for the last 4/5 years. I’ve been sick for a long time pretty much ever since before Gave birth to Kyla. They told me I was possibly going to need to do something investigate furtheror maybe try and have another baby( I was bleeding, on and off blood thinners and having super weird symptoms) we had kyla and then immediately after I was in and out of the dr in England having blood tests, hospital visits, scans ect and they couldn’t find anything wrong. Thank goodness over there the medical is all national health care so free. Fast forward a year and once I had moved here one of the specialists I was seeing did my first surgery. he did a d&c to stop my bleeding( I hadn’t stopped since having Kyla aug 2016- feb 2018) and then gave me a medication to re build my tissue and put me on a birth control. It worked as far as the bleeding but my symptoms continued. I quit my job as a vet tech at banfield a month after as I just couldn’t do it anymore. Let’s fast forward again to the last almost two years since my first surgery I’ve been to specialist after specialist after specialist test after test after test, 18 plus blood tests, thyroid tests, X-rays, scans, visit after visit. To get no where be told nothing was wrong yet I weigh the lowest I’ve ever weighed 96 lbs, my hair falls out, I have 0 energy, bad joint pain and a bad shoulder that I go to physio for, I throw up like it’s normal, I basically live a normal life feeling terrible all day everyday. I can’t remember the last time I had an appetite or or energy but still no medical reason found. Still have to continue like normal while being a mother. Saturday Sept 28 I went to saddleback hospital because I was having trouble breathing(already had been to the dr was given an inhaler but told no Wheeze on myLungs) they put me on a steroid through an iv, chest X-ray, and A breathing treatment all while telling me they couldn’t find anything wrong or the reason I could only fill my Lungs every 5/6 breaths.I was so confused and was sent home still not breathing right. On Monday sept 30 I went for a scan that was already booked by my dr in her words we were “looking for a zebra” so something rare at this point. I had been there for 5 minutes and was told I should go to uci medical center for more tests. I went to the hospital where the dr told me I was pregnant. I was so confused that was impossible I had just had my period take my birth control and had just been to the dr for blood and urine days prior. I was in a lot of pain at this point in my side and back and still wasn’t breathing right. I had more tests done a bunch of drs and then they told me they suspected an ectopic pregnancy and I was being taken straight to surgery. I had about 30 minutes to call everyone and let them know what was going on even though I didn’t really know I woke up hours later groggy and in the worst pain. The next day I was told they never found an ectopic pregnancy but they did find two cysts one that was fluid filled and one that wasn’t, they also removed my ovary and sent it all off to pathology. They did a d&c too as couldn’t figure out why the pregnancy hormone was in my bloodstream. We are 4 days later and I haven’t moved, been in so much pain, passing tissue from inside me, sick, on very strong drugs a little overwhelmed by what just happened. Anthony is now taking over my role as mother, shopping cleaning, bathing, cooking, school runs all while also trying to work. I am not able to work either. It’s obvious that the bills have piled up as normal I already had $1000 of medical bills before the surgery but with the sudden surgery it’s cost extra co pays, my whole deductible which is high, medications, food, baby sitters, hotels ect ect. Not to mention Anthony isn’t working fully as he has full responsibility of the kids and the two pet sitting jobs I had to be cancelled. So many of you have helped so much already with the girls and school runs and watching them last minute dropping food off ect! I am so grateful because the mom guilt is real... I am doing ok, in a lot of pain with three keyhole wounds, hopefully with no more complications. A lot of you keep asking me what you can do to help and if you can send food ect, I made this to be discreet and shared with those of you who have asked to help as like I stated all of this makes me overwhelmed! But it still continues, more co pays, now the surgery bill, sitters Uber’s I can’t drive ect ect all the hidden costs of having not really much of support team here and emergency surgery. If you have helped in anyway way small or big it is greatly appreciated by Anthony myself khloe and Kyla! Please all hope for a fast recovery and clear results! I will keep you all posted ❤️
