Am writing to let all of you know I have been in the hospital for the past 6 days. Was rushed by paramedics last Wed.  My diverticulitis got very bad. I have an abcess which can't be drained and I have to have surgery in about 8 weeks. Have to see several drs. coming up, a 3rd CT scan and a colonoscopy before. A lot on my plate. I will be in the hopspital again for at least a week. Takes time for the intestines and colon to heal and start working again.  I will keep everyone posted.  I am feeling very weak, on heavy duty meds right now and can't eat much. Please understand if I don't post right away. Am too weak to sit at computer for any length.  Please keep me in your prayers.  I am very scared.  I have never been this sick before. But I have had many health problems the past two  years and am wondering why this keeps happening to me. I am feeling that at this point God has put too much on my plate and I am very down and stressed.  Thanks to all who asked about me. I will respond when I am able.

Precious Aurora-

My prayers are genuinely with you at this difficult time. Ive had alot of surgery and although its unpleasant at the time, the benefits in the long run outweigh the initial fear. Im sending you prayers for peace of mind, for a speedy recovery and for you to feel comforted.

We are all here for you and when you get scared, visualise your HW family cheering you on as you get wheeled into the theatre- seriously, I had a panicky issue last year and on the AP board, Kitt told me to actually imagine my AP family there, with pom poms cheering me on and you know what? I did that and wow its crazy, but it was so soothing!

God bless, and (((((((((((hugs))))))))))) from down under

Kitt, Karen, Korissa, Mazfire, Jamiee, your well wishes , thoughts and prayers mean more to me than I can say.  I was in tears reading how much you care and support me.  I know that you are all helping me and I will try to keep that in mind as I am trying to recover and face this surgery. It is hard being in bed so much and being house bound. My sons are helpful but will be away for the Labor day weekend and I am scared to be so alone.  I may post several times and welcome all replies. I am trying to line up friends to call on in case of any problems. Hearing from people helps me to not feel so alone. I know I have to stay strong to get better but the lonliness can get me so down.

Jamiee, I am sorry you are having your share of problems too, and I am thinking of you and saying prayers for you too.

Heej Aurora,

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I'd like to share one something with you that helps me. As often as I can, I try to think "This, too, shall pass". It helps to make me realize hard time will be better, and to enjoy the good times even more. Maybe it will work for you too.

Take care, and all the very best!

Thank you so much Mazfire for thinking of me.  I am so lonely and down. My sons are gone for the weekend and I feel so alone and helpless.  Still having pain and am very weak. I have been able to eat a little more but have to watch the diet.  Bland diet is So bland! But taking in more may help me feel stronger. I hired a home caregiver to come in for 6 hrs. on Sat and Sun. She can help me and cook and do some light chores and just keep me company. I knew the other day that I might not be able to handle the whole weekend alone.  I have 2 friends coming over on Mon. so I do have some human contact over the weekend.  I couldn't ask either son to stay home as their Grandfather, 98, is not doing well and this may be the last time they see him and I didn't want to deprive them of that. If I can just get through the weekend I will probably improve. I just have to figure out how to conquer this incredible lonliness! You can get pretty tired of the TV and I can only do a little reading as I can't seem to concentrate. Thank you again for caring about me.  I guess it would help if others would reply too. But i'm sure on a busy weekend a lot of people will be gone.

Hugs,

Aurora

Auroroa, so glad to hear you're going to have someone with you this weekend.

I will keep you in thoughts and prayers.

I'm going to go north with sister and her husband and be away from computers until Thursday. Otherwise, I would be checking HW for any word from you. Hope to hear you're doing much better when I get back.

I probably can't identify with the kind of weakness you have. It must be terrible since you're unable to eat enough. I kind of undertand because I'm still so strained from the accident which has made Lymel fatigue worse. I'm getting worried about pulling the few things together for this short trip. Wish someone could do it for me. Yet I wouldn't stay home because of it. To get up in the wilderness will do me good. I'll just grab a few things and go.

Please take care!

Hugs!
Korissa
