So I decided I need to ask how all of you are doinf instead of focusing on me and all of my prpblems? So let me know.....I care so much about each and everyone of you and I am not lying that if i did not have your words during my breakdown I am not sure where I would be. My husband and family were afraid i was going to hurt myself, but I pulled through and you all were a major part in my realization that I am alive and for now I just have to deal with the punches. SO tell me hoe you all are !!!!
I am still having extreme nausea and pain. I am on so many meds I feel like I own a pharmacy :) but they keep me very calm. I even walked through the grocery store this am. I am going to try and go t one of my most beautiful favorite pt's cancer free parties tonight for an hour or so, i think I will be ok if I am sitting down. I have had some cheerios plain today and a hot chocolate. I am really sick of people trying to force feed me....I just cannot move that fast with the food. I am only 11 days post-op from a very traumatic surgery and infection.
I have skin breakdown from a leak on the bottom of my ostomy and I have no idea what to do, my skin is raw and bumpy and hurts, but I asked to ostomy girls.guys what I should do......
Please let me know how you all are. I miss you and love you and will never forget your kind words.
