Thanks Skeye...yes..it was absolutely horrible...I am used to awful pain all the time...but adding alien in body wanting to get out in any way shape or form!! Wow...I literally was praying to God to either take me now...or help me through this...
Adding the bit of helplessness with the largest snow storms back/back where the national guard was called in to help get emergency patients to hospitals..it felt weird to be 'trapped'....happy that I didn't have to go to ER...
Thank goodness for my amazing PM who trained in general medicine too, way back when..kept calling me each day to check on me and see if I needed anything...I am blessed that he is a friend of mine:)
Yes..pets are so wonderful! He just 'knew' that I was so sick and cuddled with me..big lug!...LOL..sweet neighbors would take shifts and take him outside..
Hope you are doing well...I'm trying to catch up on the posts to see what everyone's weeks have been like...always praying for you guys!!
