I have been having pain in my abdomen for over a week, getting increasingly worse.  Yesterday I spent all day at the doctor's and hospital having tests.   There is something going on in the colon.  I had a colonoscopy about two months ago which was clear.  Anyhow, I have no details just the fact that my doctor sent the surgeon the CT scan report and they will be discussing the situation and letting me know what needs to be done.  Meanwhile I am lying down 95% of the time because that is the best way to lessen the pain.  Jo-Ann is having problems with her new computer, soon as she gets it running she can post and let you know what is going on if I can't.  Hugs MK

Im sorry to hear about your problems but it sounds like it is somesthing that needs to be taken care of and fast. I cant see you being laid up all of the time, thats just not fair.

Keep us posted on when the surgery will be so that we can warm up the plane.

Lots of hugs to you!

Sorry to hear you are in pain and having problems. Hope it is nothing more than a pork chop bone. Take it easy and feel better soon. Hugs, Lauri

Oh MK - I am crossing my fingers that everything turns out OK.  If you do need surgery, I hope they fix whatever it is.  I will be waiting anxiously to hear good news!

Dear MK, thinking of you! Please let us know how everything is. (((((HUGS)))))
