Thanks Baby T. I am trying not to freak...........but it is hard. I know it will be fine. Wish I could go to a tropical island for a week.
machalle and Junebug,Thank you so much, you know I count on you all. You have always rallied and the prayers have always helped. Love yaKitt
Thanks Baby T.He is not good about talking about his fears and he does not want anyone to know. The nurse in me is of course searching the internet but the info is never conclusive and so we wait until the 13th. I wish I could go to sleep and wake up on the 13th just to make time go by faster.............
Thank you for being here. I do so appreciate it. My anxiety is up, down and all over the scale.The anticipatory anxiety is back as it is so hard to not think of the what ifs?With your support I will be OKHugs to youKitt
Good Morning my friends,
Well only 10 more days to wait. You are right, I think it will turn out to be something simple but the waiting is hard. I want to leave and come back in ten days but I would not leave him alone.......
He does not want to talk about it and has taken the let's see what it is first approach yet I know inside he is worried. I am a " lets have a fall back plan" but seeing as this is his body, I respect his wishes. Men do not like sickness and weakness in themselves, I so understand that. He already has the Crohn's so adding anything will be nasty for him.
I am trying to stay busy and also quit eating..........I eat when I am nervous, happy sad.....oops, I guess I use food for comfort. Been fighting that old battle all my life. So off to the store to buy some fruit.
You guys are simply quite wonderful and coming here and seeing the posts warms my heart. I feel like I can post my feelings and yet know it is ok.HugsKitt
Kitt, endless aplogies for getting here so slowly..
BLESS YOU AND YOUR BELOVED
You know how much we all love and support you and the same goes for your soulmate...I will have you both in my thoughts from today on..you are family and will be given all the help and love you surely deserve, keep us up to date sweetie
Lordy, I am a jelly fish on the inside and yet I must continue to pretend that all is fine and we are not waiting to hear news that can change our lives.I need to go back and read all my own advice. I thank you all for your support, it means the world to me.
Lyn, I know you shut down...........I can always tell when something is happening and I am giving him the respect he deserves to do this his way. I am leaning on you for sure. You have been down this road often and you have dealt with it better then I am right now. It is the not knowing that is so hard. Hey all jokes welcome, you know I have a sense of humor so I will never take a joke or teasing the wrong way.Hugs to allKitt
Hey baby T, that was a hoot..........it did make me laugh. You guys are so nice. Hugs.I have read up on the internet and I am beginning to think I am just plain nutso as he probably has a simple infection and I am in a high state of anxiety. How I wish I had friends close to me. I don't know how to focus my attention on anything productive so I sit here and answer posts.I am my own worse enemy and my problems seem so small compared to what others are writing. My hubbies Crohn's disease is so well controlled I hate to even mention it on the Crohn's forum but he had such bad times through his 3 surgeries that I feel he paid a lot of dues then. I am glad he is under control.
Lyn, I know you are going through so much with your Dad and family and yet you are so strong and you don't complain, so I will take a page from your book and just quit with the worrying. It serves no purpose.
I will look for the sunshine and get my butt off the puter and start being useful.
Love each of you, your just the best and I am so glad you are here.Kitt
Good Morning Baby T, Panike, Lyn, Meg, Dor and All..............8 Days to go and we will find out that all is well. I am convinced now that it will be ok and have stopped spending hours rereading the subject on the internet.
I am practicing my own staying in the moment philosophy to avoid the anticipatory anxiety and worrying about how I will cope. I am strong but I can cry so I feel like I will make it through.Everyday I come here and I feel the support of each of you and that boosts my spirits as you are each so encouraging. BabyT, we had a joke forum but due to the 13 years olds in the site and the jokes becoming a bit racey we had to suspend the joke thread.
You are certainly welcome to post a joke here. I love a good laugh.Bumper sticker on a car:
A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. Do you think that woman needs our help...........lolHugs to youKitt
Thanks Big Sis and I will look for a Canadian Bumper Sticker........... You take care of Dad and give him a gentle hug from me. One for you and Cait and Howie too.
Nanners,I am doing fine, really. I have all these wonderful members of HW suppoting me. I have plenty of time for you so please email me.I would feel bad if you did not as I am here and I am available......so send your mail on it's way.

Thanks Mary, I am giving him his space.............and trying to stay in the moment. Coming here and posting helps me and everyone here is so supportive.
