    Fsamily emergency

    First I apologize for the delays. I had the boxes ready to go, but my son had a heart incident. The boxes were forgotten and not remembered for several days. The were in a cool room so the plants will live and I have others to send out. He had another heart incident Friday and we have been getting test and fighting with doctors since then. I am going to spend the weekend harassing doctors through the answering service to get him back on his heart meds. The problem is that my son has many disorders and his specialists are arguing on what is causing his heart to act up again ( although I agree with those that say it is his thyroid (which is growing back after it was killed with radiation three years ago {I am not dead yet}), but the endocrine specialist disagrees and will not do anything (even though the THC is too high). It is frustrating. I am working on his main doctor ( a very good man) and hopefully Zach will be back on heart meds by tomorrow or Monday. He is very frightened again. It is so sad because after being off heart meds for 18 months he was finally believing he was not going to die. He is not. He just need the heart meds again. I can not remember which he was on...it is a common medication to keep the rhythm nice and steady. If you want your postage back send a pm, but I will probably not respond until next week, and I will reimburse pay pal. For the ones who want to wait I will send them as long as soon as he is feeling better.

    Mass, did not get yours packed at all. Save the plants that you are sending until you receive my box.

    Lime, I received the utrics. They looked great. I put holes in the containers and put them in a tank, so they should be fine.

    Thank you all
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Family takes priority - hope you get the doctors sorted out and that they get your sons meds adjusted so he can get some relief. We all know that as 'just family' the doctors usually don't think we know squat - stay on their cases til somebody does something.

    Nothing but good thoughts and prayers coming your way.

    Wow i am sorry to hear this Rose. I don't normally check this section and had NO clue. I hope all gets better and if you need anything I am a cardiac nurse. Maybe I could clear things up. Doctors are not always the best at explaining things correctly so the non-medical person understands.

    BTW When you said "but the endocrine specialist disagrees and will not do anything (even though the THC is too high). " I hope you meant TSH, because THC is th active ingredient in pot. TSH is the stimulating hormone sent from the pituitary gland. It is going to be high because the body is trying to get the thyroid to produce. Since there is no thyroid gland then it cannot produce. You have to look for T3 and T4 if they go up again then the thyroid may be coming back, but TSH doesn't come from the thyroid it comes from the pituitary.

    If you have any questions you can PM or Email me. I would be glad to explain or work through anything. If you don't mind me asking. What heart med are we trying to get him back on?

    I'm so sorry Rose, I didn't know. I just now saw this thread, so please disregard the PM I sent yesterday. I hope all the best for your little man, and wish him a speedy recovery.
    I'm more than happy to wait for the plants. No rush, family first.
