🏥 TRYING TO CONTROL MY NAUSEA 🏥 (8.4.18)


By the time it arrived I was like…like in the corner over there in the windowsill like… Ugh…no, no, no. ♬ Don’t you think we’re better together ♬ ♬ Oh Honey ♬ ♬ I think we are ♬ Good morning guys. Mary’s going for a little bike ride. Right by the door so I feel like I’m getting some- [Peter] She’s escaping by staying where she’s at on a stationary bike. But it’s been a Saturday morning in the hospital. We just did blood work. Her nurse just looked up blood work. [coughing] Pause. Here I am checking in day number…I don’t even know, in the hospital, in my bed. Good morning! I know we already said good morning but I was biking and then I moved the bike and then whatever. I just finished chess PT for the second time, biked once… hooked up to IVs. We have weaned me off the feeding tube now, so I’ll be ready for surgery. That’s about all the medical updates I have. Oh. This is interesting. This is another medical update. So… I got that neupogen shot which tells my bone marrow to make more blood and my bone marrow listened and my bone marrow was like, all right. We got you! And my blood counts shot up, like… It made all of us smile because my blood counts almost always go down like, just in life it’s not my strong suit. So, we saw my happy blood numbers and that was yesterday. So then today they drew blood to see how my kidneys are doing and how my blood counts and everything and my white blood cell count… Like, went in half of what it was yesterday and I was like, I did not expect that. I thought it would be like the same, maybe higher, maybe just a smidge lower but it like halved and I was like, what? So, I don’t know. Um… [Peter] I did look at, I just looked at your blood work from last time and it kind of did a similar thing. Oh, did it? Okay. [Peter] So I’m hoping it’ll stabilize out. It didn’t jump up as much as it did this time. [Mary] So last time it was… It jumped up higher… [Mary] Wait, what? It jumped up higher this time after neupogen than it did last time. And… But the, for like a week it stayed around where it is today. [Mary] Okay, cool. That’s what I, that’s what I thought I remembered that it kind of plateaued. Yeah. [Mary] That’s good. How are you? I’m good. Just working on stuff on our store and that kind of stuff, so… [Mary] This week we decided… [Mary] since it’s pre-surgery week that it would be great to have a fill-in preacher [Mary] so Peter can just focus on life here. [Mary] So he has a fill-in preacher for tomorrow, which is [Mary] a huge relief just to be able to [Mary] kind of not think about that sort of business. [Mary] This is kind of a cool shot. [Mary] Do you want to say something… [Mary] That, that’s what you chose to say… [Peter laughing] [luggage rolling] [door opening] [luggage rolling] [trunk opening] Just dropped off these suitcases in the car to make some room in our hospital room because you know, it’s tight quarters and two big suitcases that we brought all the stuff in… Might as well keep them in the car instead of in the way, so… Dropping those off here in the car in the parking garage and now I am going to go take a bike across the city because Mary uh… wants to do some shopping at Primark and since she can’t leave the hospital and I can… thanks to modern technology, I’m gonna take her shopping. I’ve never done this before but they’ve got these bikes. It’s like a ride-sharing thing and it’s…there’s like a free thing in the app today where I can take…take a bike for a ride. So… that’s what I’m gonna do. I think I put a code in the app or something. ♬ chill music ♬ I just made it across town. That was the fastest I’ve ever come across Boston because riding a bike is a way faster than driving. No traffic, but look I made it to Primark and up in the second floor…let’s see if you can see this. Uh…where is it? Where is it? I guess you can’t see it in the camera. It’s too blurry. But there’s a…there’s like all the light up signs for all the places that they have a Primark. And the first one that caught my eye was Edinburgh because that was the first one we went to when we were living in Scotland, so anyways. In to Primark, find Mary some comfy clothes. Success. We got some comfy clothes. Maybe we’ll show you when I get back to the hospital. Wow, it’s blurry. C’mon focus. There we go. Wow, it is busy downtown. I guess this is the hoppin place to be on a Saturday night. But Mary told me she had at…when, when I left she was just getting her imipenem dose and it made her very very nauseous. She had to take some more anti-nausea meds, which she’s already on like two pretty hefty doses and… Anyways, so that’s not fun. That’s a nasty drug, but… hopefully the bacteria thinks so too. Also, while I was in Primark my phone died, which I need my phone to be able to get a bike to go home and I wanted to stay in contact with Mary. So… thankfully they had one of these little power things for ten bucks, so… We’ve always, we used to have one. I don’t know what happened to it. I think we had it in Scotland. It was like… a lot bigger than this one, but anyways, this will be pretty handy to have and I got a ten-foot cable for charging my phone. But Mary’s always… her cable’s never long enough when she’s like doing her therapy and stuff. So hey, this will be nice, especially in the hospital. So I’m gonna grab a bike, figure out where to eat some dinner and we’ll see you guys back in the hospital. I wanted to show you guys this little burrito shop right here. My first time I ever came to Boston back in…I think it was… 2008… I came to Boston…is that right? 2008. I think so. I went to a church here downtown and then came here for lunch, and I remember calling Mary and talking to her about Boston. I was visiting the seminary where I ended up attending a couple years later and anyways, brings back memories of me sitting in there calling Mary and telling her about Boston. And anyways, now 10 years later and this is pretty much home. So. While I was in Jimmy John’s Mary said that she thinks she could eat some PF Changs lettuce wraps. So I ordered those. I’m waiting for those to get done before I head back to the hospital. [Peter] All right. The goods have been secured. We’re headed back. How nice, they have a bike lane for me. ♬ chill music ♬ Look, I’m back and how are those lettuce wraps? It was so good. Oh, good. It was like perfect. Good. It was so cool. They like packaged all the ingredients separate so she could mix a lettuce wraps and eat them. So that was awesome. And we got some fortune cookies. And they actually like wrapped everything well so that it traveled well. Yeah, on the bike. Set you guys on the bed and we’ll have fortune cookies with Peter and Mary. You could call it fortune cookie 500. [both chuckling] Good one. So… Okay. What are- Oh! What are fortune cookies made out of? I have no idea. Okay. The uh… the ice cream cone’s weird cousin? Mmm. A tropical vacation is in store. [Peter] Oh! Oh! [Peter] You will surprise yourself tomorrow. [both] Oh! So my afternoon was going just swimmingly and then I hit that wall… because the antibiotic, my afternoon antibiotic is just, it’s… taking it completely out of me and that’s with two anti-nausea medications, so I ended up having to take another dose of one of the medications and that helped and then I was able to eat a little bit of something and… I’m thinking, and what do you think about this Peter? I’m thinking for that afternoon dose I’ll keep my nausea meds the same for the morning and the evening but the afternoon one ask if we can make that the dose that I took today. [Peter] Yeah. Um… cuz it’s just like… I had ordered food… and within the time that the food was gonna get here, I ordered mashed potatoes and gravy and pancakes and because I didn’t know what I was gonna be in the mood for. Anyway, by the time it arrived I was like… like in the corner over there in the windowsill like… Ugh…no, no, no. So… anyway, so that’s unfortunate, but we’re getting it all ironed out. It’s only day six. This is my sixth day on the IVs, so figuring out what works, what doesn’t. That’s kind of it goes. Peter went on a little shopping excursion and oh my gosh! It looks even comfier than I thought. He’s holding them up so I can see them. [Peter] We got matching- Oh my gosh, babe. They feel amazing! [Peter] Don’t they? And they were like $12? [Peter] Yeah. $14. That’s pretty good. [Peter] So… That is so exciting. I love these! Peter, these were a good find. I can just tell already. [Peter] I know. And I showed them I had to get all this… Oh, the charging stuff. Well that’s cool cuz I’ve been… Oh, that’s so small. And it’s a free flashlight. [Peter] Yeah. I mean… [Peter] Figure out how to turn it off. That is very odd. Maybe when you turn the power bank off. Oh, no. I don’t know. These sweat pants. Babe, let’s put these on. Okay. Okay. Oh my gosh, babe. These are awesome! So should we do like this as our transition? Ready set go! Wait, ready, set… Wait, what are you doing? Okay. Go! Yes! Look at these. They’re awesome! That’s that. All right, you guys. As always. As always. [both] We will see you tomorrow. Oh, surprise! I already did my vest and mists. Oh! Awesome! Party! We can watch a show with no headphones and just relax. All right. [both] Good night! ♬ And Ollie boy and I are gonna go for a walk, but we’d better say- [Peter talking as Ollie] Good night guys. We’ll see you tomorrow. ♬♬

  4. Mary, your so lucky that Peter can stay in the hospital with you. I've had 7 back operations and am contemplating on the advice of mt Doc. number 8. It's a tough operation and the recovery is very painful and it would be great to have my husband with me however, the hospital doesn't really want you to but he can. Good luck and get home fast!

  5. I hope you feel better after your surgery tomorrow I just wanted to say that I have surgery on Thursday to help with my ears I was diagnosed with what is called eustachian tube dysfunction meaning my eustachian tubes form right when I was in the womb I guess it's the way to put it but I just wanted to let you know that I'm praying for you hoping your surgery helps you and I just wanted to let you know I have surgery on Thursday and you guys helped me through a lot of my problems so I am praying for you for your surgery tomorrow I've never had sinus surgery but I have my 7th surgery on Thursday. My mom and I have this ongoing joke that when I go to the ENT that I always come home with the green surgery papers so I tell her that oh no I got the dreaded papers again and we laugh about it and I'm an old Pro about this I've had this surgery since I was 8 months old but I hope everything goes well for you tomorrow and I hope you feel better soon

  6. When I saw Peter rolling out the suitcases I instantly thought Mary was sneaking out of the hospital lol. Good luck with your surgery tomorrow!

  7. I kind of want to send you guys a whole bunch of fortune cookies just to open and read on camera lol but they probably aren't as special when you open a bunch of them at one time

  8. My family, we would go around the table and read our fortunes, but added in bed to the end. Just reminded me and seemed apropo with Mary sitting in bed. Much love to you guise

  9. Hey guys, I happened to stumble across (I was actually down the rabbit hole, lol) another youtuber that had a video about CF awareness from May (I know that was a while ago, lol) and wondered if you had seen it. Her twin five year old nieces have CF and their mom did a day in the life. Sweet little babies doing everything they can to stay healthy.

  10. ‘A tropical vacation is in store’
    “Oooooo”
    ‘You will surprise yourself tomorrow’
    “OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    😂

  11. I love your relationship with each other so much. You appreciate each other so much and we all would be better off if we treated our spouses like that.

  12. I miss primark so much! I was born in England and lived there till I was 15 and then moved to Australia, I’m now 27 and I miss primark, especially the Disney stuff, so my nanny, bless her, has been shopping for me and sending stuff over for me 😂

  13. Oh my gosh I always order mashed potatoes and pancakes when I'm in the hospital but not together! Lol definitely comfort food. There's just something about a big bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy when you feel horrible.

  14. Wishing you love, light, and prayers. You got this girl. Can’t wait to get my order!!!! So excited. Kiss Bonzi for me. He’s such a good boy.

  15. Mary, it is so wonderful to see your huge smile in between the nausea bouts. Peter, you need to go shopping for clothes for Mary once a week. She likes your style! Before I go to bed, I thought I would tell a little joke and Mary would find it hilariously funny in her sleep and lol all night! I promise you that this is definitely G rated. Yes! It’s God material! So you know how blondes are stereotyped right? Well there’s this blonde who is down on her luck and she fervently prays every night for God to meet her needs. She has no husband and lives alone and she finds it hard. One night she asked God to let her win the lottery! A week goes by and nothing! Every week before the big draw she asks God again and again to let her win the lottery. Weeks go by and still nothing changes. One night feeling particularly sick and tired of it all and having cold feet and no husband to warm them on she gets a little impatient upon saying her prayers. Kneeling on the floor by her bed cold feet and all she starts. “God! I’ve been a good christian all my life and I’ve been the best person I could be wherever and whenever it was required of me. But I don’t think that you like me very much cause I have been in need for such a long time and I have been very patient waiting for you to answer my prayers to win the lottery but you still haven’t!” God replied “ My dear child. I cannot let you win the lottery …..if you don’t buy a ticket!” 😂😝🤣

  16. I had no idea there's Primark in the U.S. I just thought it was a UK store. I hope the surgery goes/went well, and that you feel better, Mary.

  17. Question that I’m sure has been addressed, but haven’t heard it mentioned before. Why do they do manual chest PT instead of the vest when Mary is in the hospital? Is it just easier for them to chart? Do CF floors not keep vests on the floor due to the potential cross contamination? Just curious! Fingers and toes crossed, and prayers uplifted for a smooth procedure and speedy recovery!

  18. I love how positive you both are no matter what happens or where you are. Sending additional prayers for your surgery tomorrow. Big hugs and love to you all!

  19. You guys are amazing. Blown away by the bike use for both of you. Awesome!! Good job to you in particular Mary. Glad your figuring nausea somewhat. Thanks for sharing. The fact that you both smile and have bring humor often is wonderful. Please give Ollie a pet for me. Many prayers and blessed may you all be. Thank you both for being an amazing inspiration.

  20. I love the matching sweatpants! I'm glad Peter got a substitute so you can focus on hospital stuff for now.

  21. Only you two could make a hospital visit look fun. I know it really does suck and is not what you wanted in your life right now, but you guys always find the positive! Love you both! Sending prayers your way for surgery ❤️❤️

  22. Tomorrow you will be receiving love and strength from all over the world. Wrap it around you like a cocoon (or a soft tailor-made baby blanket) and let it keep you warm. I know that you’ve got this!!

  23. Your videos are never long enough. I know, I know, there's so much editing etc. But still, you both are so loved by your Frey Lifers we all can't stand when it's over. The good news is that Mary's symptoms appear to be a bit milder. Gratitude for answered prayers. God bless.

  24. First off sending prayers to y'all secondly I was wondering now that Kinder eggs are now available in the U.S. do you ever plan in the future to do Kinder eggs again?

  25. Just thought you’d like to know that you have an almost 4 month old kitten named Tiger who is a big fan. 😆 He sits on my shoulder and purrs watching the whole vlog without taking his eye off of you.

  26. Im a new veiwer and i was wondering what you were going in to surgery for i watched the draw my life and i saw you have cf i think it was and idk if your going in to sugrey for a lung trasplant or soemthing else

  27. U could try double pressing the power button on the portable charger/power bank (fairly quickly) to turn the light off/on-that’s how the light on my power bank works! Hope u see this and it works for u!!

  28. Sending you TONS of prayers, love and thoughts!! Goodluck for the surgery-U got this!!! We are cheering real loudly for you!!! Hang in there sweetness!!!

  29. One of my fave places to eat in Mass or NH is called Pappa Ginos they have yummy seafood pockets & other goodies

  30. I love your vlogs. It is the first thing I watch after work (after work being 5am, lol) You always make me smile. You both are amazing people. You inspire through your strength and positive outlook. Prayers for successful surgery, better recovery, and as full healing as possiable.

  31. I hope you’re feeling better. I was in the hospital having neck surgery and vomited the whole time after surgery. Ugh. I feel ya on that. Then we had a scare thinking I was having a heart attack since my blood pressure was super high they ended up giving me 3 nitroglycerin pills until the pain went away and the blood pressure went down. Love watching you guys! You guys give me so much encouragement when I myself am feeling sick.

  32. I have felt like this for a while but I don't want to offend anyone. This channel needs a different name because it's all about Mary and not The Frey Life. Peter unfortunately is just in these vids about Mary.

  33. Ok, when Peter rolled those suitcases out, I was half expecting Mary to pop out because she was sneaking out of her hospital room!

  34. Vacationed in Boston in 2014. Loved it! We stayed in the north section in a gorgeous b&b. Walked by Paul Revere's House almost everyday. Total walking trip absolutely loved it. Thanks for taking us on the tour

  35. It really hurts us to see you struggle with nausea!! Please ask the Dr. if you can have ZOFRAN. It will instantly stop nausea and vomiting. It comes in a liquid that can be put in your I.V. and they also make a ZOFRAN wafer that dissolves instantly under your tongue. It's a miracle drug to STOP nausea and vomiting. God bless!!

  36. hey marry I would like to have a sweater. but I whont get one from my mom. I have a question with what do you edit your videos?
    Bey love alanna

  37. Didn’t know you had primark in USA. I love it. There pyjamas are the best. Love all the character stuff they do. Very nice of you peter to get Mary some stuff.

  38. Peter, we have had our back window of our suv busted out at the hospital and all of our stuff stolen including all electronics. I would keep all of that up in your room

  39. I know you get all sorts of advice; but have you researcher New Zealand's Manuca honey? It's being used for everything from heating sounds to helping with inflammation of joints,etc to all kinds of stomach issues. You have to be careful to get the right kind of you may as well eat or rub clover honey on you guys and burns. It's worth looking in to. I know Europe and Asia are using it to treat patients, especially children who have had surgery. They put gauze soaked in the honey on the sutures before wrapping the wound. It helps heal the wounds much faster! I read it you eat a teaspoon of tablespoon 1/2 hr before eating, it helps greatly with stomach issues.

  40. People, they don't need disciplined like they're children. If they have shoes on the bed, so what! That's the least of the terms she's come across in that hospital! To avoid them all, she'd have to live in a bubble.
    How do you know they don't have a sanitation inside their door for the dog to get his feet wiped down. She has to be able to build up some resistance of everything she comes across would put her in the hospital, which, by the way, has more germs!!! Just encourage them. They're doing a fantastic job fighting this evil, while being a loving newly married couple of 6 1/2 yrs!!! (And pastoring a church!) God bless and if it be in His will, make you well enough, (even if it takes a new set of lungs)! To everyone else… Register to donate your organ! It's easy, do it when you renew your liscense!
