Papi is still sick.

We are now on the 4th 'infection' since the hysterectomy.

The worst part of this, is not the 3 emergency visits.

It's also not the fact that my poor Papi can't stray too far from a toilet.

To me, the worst part is twofold.

My love is now on the 4th round of antibiotics, and nobody is taking this seriously, even though I push for answers.

I have the world's greatest family doc, but even she won't look further into this.

Everyone just keeps stuffing antibiotics into mi esposo's already damaged system.

Today we're going in to see the doc, and we've booked a double appointment.  One for me for documenting my bitch of a back, and the other 15 minutes for Papi.

I'll be making the rest of the 25 minutes about my love.

The hospitals in our lower mainland of Vancouver have been dubbed so dirty, that some surgeons will walk out of a surgery, because the risk is too high.

This is not ok.

We are not living in a 3rd world country.

We are the 'privileged', and yet somehow, our hospitals are dirtier than some countries that you'd expect to be worse off.

I'm not going to be able to write too much today.

I just needed to vent.

I just needed to get it out here, before it comes out of my mouth and I say angry things I shouldn't.

hehe ... bite first, learn later ...

Anyway, I'm going to be leaving in half an hour to start my day of mania.

So much to do and so little time.

And all I can think about is my love being so sick.

Please heal Papi.

I need your cuddles.


  1. My thoughts are with Papi and I have sent you one big cuddle

  2. hugs for you and Papi ♥

  3. sending positive vibes to you and Papi! Hoping for a speedy recovery! Have you considered seeing a naturopath? Sometimes western doctors dont pay attention to the whole picture, and they just prescribe pill after pill. With all thoes antibiotics there's probably no good bacteria left to help in the fight! Ive been experimenting with juice therapy (juicing whole vege and fruits). Its the quickest way to replenish the body with nutrients without taxing the digestive system and has been known to heal from the inside out. From my book Raw Vege juices "The combination of beet, carrot and cucumber gives us one of the finest cleansing and healing aids for the kidneys gull bladder and sex glands. Heal with the nutrients of the Earth!

  4. Oh no! It is ridiculous that this is still going on. You are both in my thoughts. I hope they get to the bottom of the causes of all these infections for once and for all.

  5. acorn, thanx for the surrogate hug :)

    kaleigh, i'm in the process of convincing papi, but it's going to take work.

    jamie, i hope so too ... at least we got an xray today. ultrasound in a week ...

    bio, i'll pass on the love xo

  6. Definitely a review of medications is required here, and I totally agree with considering the "natural" option. Hugs for you both. :) xx

  7. Wow, Andrea.....I am sending you and Papi some good ole love from the South. Our southern charm has been known to cure all sorts of ailments, so I hope you both the best.


  8. vee, i'm gong to call them tomorrow ... if anything they can help papi build his immune up again

    amber, thanx for the love ... i'm feeling it from you and everyone. i'm so tired ...
