Sunday AM I went boom

Sunday morning at 4 AM I got up to go pee and when I was walking back to bed I felt dizzy.
I didn't make it back to bed!! I passed out before getting there.

Now before you all start telling me to go to the doctor, remember we don't have any insurance and we have very little $$ !!!!!! I am still on dial up!!

Years ago we went to lots of doctors trying to find out why I get dizzy and at times pass out!!
I have done it most all my life. When Tom was hot to find out why, I would pass out on him he spent over 3, 000.00$ trying . The only thing that came up in all those tests was that I needed to have a bunch of colon removed. That I should have been larger- taller and had way too much colon, it was in knots. Of course we didn't have the money for that surgery nothing was done with the doctors. Surgery would have been 50,000$$ Today it would be a lot more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The doctors could not say for sure but thought that the messed up colon was why I would pass out.

Anyway I almost tore off my big toe's nail !! I am sore !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday I didn't walk Bambi at all. Monday I did get my boot on and I walked a little with her. Today I got a little further with her so I am starting to heal. I am sore tho!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I could use your prays tho!!!

Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern


  1. Our mama had 3 major colon surgeries in the early 2000's and still has complications from them, so doctors don't always necessarily fix problems with surgery!!!!!!! Her belief is in prayer, thus we are praying and purraying for you. xxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. I saw a show about Dysautonomia where this lady would get dizzy pass out when she stood up.

    I hope you feel better.

  3. Oh Fern
    I am sorry and sure hope that you will feel better. I know things are expensive and you can only do what you can do. Take care of yourself, the best you can and we are praying for you here at our house.

    Get better soon.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  5. We sure have our paws crossed that you're feeling better soon! That doesn't sound like fun at all. Take care of yourself!


  6. Dear Miss Fern, I see that my Wives Ruby and Penny have sent you their RAYZ and I can tell you they have the mostest bestest Rayz possible. I will add my VIBES to their Rayz and also Cross my Paws fur you.
    VIBES >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  7. Oh no! You are in our thoughts and prayers, Fern! I hope you are okay!

  8. We understand about the not having insurance and the high cost of medical care, but you just know we are going to tell you that you should have this checked again. It could be totally unrelated to the previous problems, maybe as simple as a blood pressure problem or even an ear infection. We do hope you will think about it. Meanwhile, please do take care of yourself.

  10. We're sending you TONS of AireZen, Fern!

    Love ya lots

  11. Oh, Sweet Fern...surely there is some way you can have this checked. Medicare? It could be a number of things...low blood pressure, not enough oxygen to your brain, to to name a few. I will say a special prayer for you! Hope your toe feels better soon!


  12. Oh, Fern, I'm so sorry you're having a tough time. I hope things are looking up for you very soon. Hang in there!

  13. Oh, Fern! I hope you're feeling better and that you heal up real fast. You take good care of yourself and don't do too much walking until you're all better.

  14. Hope things are going well for you, my friend. Ozabella is recovering very nicely. Suppose to get cold here this weekend. Not looking forward to that. Take care and keep smiling!

  15. Hi Fern,
    I'm so very sorry to read you fell. That must have been very scary to get dizzy in the middle of the night.

    I hope by today you are feeling a lot better.
    Don't you have Medicaid Ins?

    Hugs and purrs,
    Madi and Mom

  16. PS I meant Medicare...I always get those confused.

  17. Oh no - how scary! Please, please go to at least a clinic to have the doctors check you out to be sure of what it is...please! Keep feeling better, and keep us posted.

  18. I'm so sorry Fern. Hope you are feeling better. Can't you get some sort of financial aid to help with your medical? It seems terrible that you can't get your health taken care of due to finances... ?? Prayers your way...

  19. Oh Fern we hope you are feeling better. We don't want you to feel badly when you take care of all your furbabies....sending you lotz of wagz and puppy kizzezzzzz!!!
