When I got up for meds, the phone was plugged in for charging. I was surprised to see it lit up. The time said 5:54. I unplugged it, but the charging light was still on. I took the battery out and rebooted. When the time popped up, it said an hour later. Within a few minutes, all the charge was drained out. I turned off the phone and plugged it in to recharge.
I was reading when movement caught my eye. I looked over to see the phone turning on by itself. Now it was 7:54. What the heck? Is that why it won’t charge sometimes? It just keeps turning off and on every hour?
Earlier when the charge got down to just a few percent and I tried to turn it off for charging, it rapidly cycled off and on a bunch of times until I took the battery out.
This phone has done the darnedest things in the last couple of months! Has stuff like this ever happened to anyone else? It’s virtually useless to take anywhere. I have to leave it home, plugged in. I tried bringing it with me, but turned off. The darn thing turns on again by itself even when unplugged.
I am getting a complex. The wound vac, the oxygen concentrator, the phone….they get near me and go nuts!
Now it’s 4PM. I have been trying to charge the phone ever since I first wrote this morning.
An infection has come back to my belly wound. The nurse seems worried. It was pretty darn gross when he took off the bandage. Phew!
I have been worried about my lower abdomen and pubic area. The nurse asked me why it was swollen so much and then I knew it wasn’t my imagination. Sigh….
He was brutal 😦 The nurse poked his finger all around my spongy, mostly numb flesh. I could only feel the pressure. Half an hour after he left, I was howling in pain. It’s even more swollen up now.
I had been happy today as my neck pain mostly vanished overnight. The nurse thinks it got better because I got a new oxygen concentrator. I told him about my constant peeing, too. Each time I am low on oxygen, I swell up from head to toe…then pee it out when my oxygen is increased.
This new abdominal/pubic swelling is weird. It had better be benignly weird and not must go to the doctor weird. Also, all day the leading edge of the lipodermatosclerosis on my right leg has been having sickeningly sharp pains followed by a deep ache. The fat is quickly disappearing at the top of the line on the back of my leg. My ankle is pretty puffy, too.
Yesterday I was reading about Job and disabled people. We are counseled not to get discouraged to the point where we “curse God and die” as Job was told he should do to just get it over with. That made me laugh in a sad sort of way. During the darkest hours that seems tempting. Hopefully I am strong with God’s help!
