The past 3 months
The past 3 months
The past few months have been extremely difficult for the Hilliard family. It started with a loss of appetite. Then dehydration set and that became a distraction that lead to a loss of will to do anything. This lead to a major loss of weight. 60 pounds later. When that happened I lost my my ability to focus.
If I decided to get out of bed within a minute or so I would become dizzy to the point of passing out. There were time we believed it was over. I became bedridden. None of our doctors could figure it out. I ran into a wall head first and herniated a disc. This prevented me from walking or moving around.
Thank God for a nurse at FCS. She noticed on the history that
my blood pressure is registering at 90-95 over 60 and mentioned to use to have that checked out . We did and the doctor immediately removed a blood pressure medicine from the list. This drug was prescribed to me when I weighed 240 now I weigh 165. It has taken 3 weeks praise God as I now am able to function. I am still trying to gain strength and weight. Both are being met.
I feel much better and able to get up and walk about for a little bit. I have started to use a tablet please forgive the typing and typos. Things seem to work out for the best and there is always a reason .Sometimes I do not know or understand the plan but that is ok. I know there is a better and larger plan than I can ever think of or implement.
I am very fortunate to have the family support. Support from siblings,friends, people we do not know , and those I have met on line. Thank you so very much for all you given. I am grateful , full of gratitude, and overwhelmed concerning the out pouring of support.
Things are getting better and with hope and faith it will continue to move forward. Thank you.
