View Full Version : Misc. Chatter for JANUARY

Sorry if I'm been MIA lately. No, it's not b/c I didn't make the CT, it's due to health problems.

First my dh came down w/pneumonia. He was very sick & is still recovering - it's been about 6 wks. So all of Dec, I had someone to take care of, in addition to do all the Christmas shopping, wrapping, attending all the Christmas concerts, paegants, and parties. I started to feel run down.

Also, my kids were getting sick; fortunately, only w/bad colds. But it seemed like one was sick one wk, then another got sick the next week.

then, the day after Christmas, I was admitted to the hospital w/kidney stones. They were too big & I had have to surgery to remove them.

I thought I'd be better after the surgery, but the stent & trauma from the surgery kept me in pain. I thought I would feel better once I got the stent removed, but again I was WRONG!!!

The stent removal was a painful process & the antibiotics they gave me to prevent infection is too strong for my system. I have secondary colitis. I never realized how horrible it really was. Maybe it's payback for not be sympathetic enough when others had it.

So, I'm on more pain meds & bland diet.

I hope everyone else's January is going better. I missed you all.:balloons:

Oh Angi....so sorry to hear that you have been through all of this!

I can feel your pain with the kidney stones! I have been there and gone through very similar circumstances to you. I think it was the worst pain I have ever had and seemed to last for months for me.

Hope you recover quickly and are back to scrap therapy quickly!

Doesn't it seem when the good Lord wants to test you, he throws things at you all at once. So sorry to hear you've had such a rough go of it, especially around Christmas. Here's hoping to a speedy recovery and you can put this all behind you. Hugs and prayers to you.

With all that you've had going on, it's no wonder you were'nt around the site or scrapping. Hope you can manage a bit of it now that you're better, and hope that you continue on that road to good health.
