A Long Road...And It's Not Over Yet

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Ok...so i am finally home from the hospital...yea!!! BUT...because i did have a strangulation that we did not know about...means there was a lot more to the hernia surgery than originally planned...so...i'm not healing as fast as i should...so i am home, but with oxygen and lots of meds...oh...and my wonderful help :) Thank God for mommies and kids. So it's a slow recovery...but i am here...more details later, but i did want to give all my wonderful friends that have been sending notes, prayers and goodies a big thank you and that i am in fact alive...

Hugs to each of you.

  


Preparing for surgery

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Just for the record...this is no fun...lol. Yesterday started the no eating anything with seeds in it...today starts the no eating...for 2 days...uhg. and the worse of it is...my dd2's wedding shower is today...now...if that is not bad enough...i also have to take laxatives during this whole shin dig...BUT...the good news is...my hernia will be repaired on Monday...wohoo!!! as for the pain...i know i can live through that...probably better than me going without eating for 2 days actually...lol. at least by my dd2's wedding...i'll be feeling fine :) and though i am kinda scared...never have been a big fan of surgery (i know...like any of us is...lol) but i know God is with me and looking out for me... and after some near misses this week, things that God has been so gracious to let me see how close to death one can come without normally knowing it...i know i will be ok. This week i've had a rock that was hit by a lawn mower hit my back door drivers side window...blew it out...you know...just if i had just been 1 second later, that would of been my window... and possible my head...tell me that isn't a scary thought... and then yesterday...i went a different way home from work...i was going to go straight to ds's school to change his bus route for a couple days while i am in the hospital, but something told me to make this extra stop...which i did, but the stop was so busy, i moved on...then i came up to an accident...you know...judging by the looks of things...had i not made that extra stop... that was only took a minute longer to get me to where i ended up...uh...that could of been me in that accident... and no matter if it had been a small accident (which it wasn't) or as bad as it was...with my hernia (cause of how bad it is)...it could of been life threatening... these things make one think... i have heard that we never know what could happen... how close to death we really are because we don't often see the near misses... i think God has allowed me to see these things so that I know come Monday...He is there. ok...i'm human... and still a little scared...but in my heart...i know God is watching over me and His hand is upon me....it's all going to be ok.

But as the day draws near..i ask my dear friends to please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

    I hope your surgery went well, and I wish you a very speedy recovery. I'm sorry about the lawn mower incident. So glad you weren't hurt! I was thinking about my own near misses, especially after my car accident a couple of months ago. If circumstances were altered just slightly, I could have been a goner. I am certain God was watching over me that day...

Please take care, my friend. You are in my thoughts and prayers. emoticon

    It is scary working up to a surgery, but once it is over, you can begin getting back to your old self. Be slow and careful after your hernia surgery. Get pampered and let people do things for you while it heals up.

Wishing you a speedy recovery,
Chris

    I had the accident thing happen to me this week too! If I hadn't stopped at the library, it could have been bad.

I am praying for you as you prepare for the surgery, and I will be praying for you on Monday as you have the surgery! Keep staying positive!

hugs,
Bobbi

A New Favorite Quote

Monday, January 11, 2010

A friend posted this on their facebook and i have determined this to be my new life quote :)

Before you speak, listen. Before you write, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you invest, investigate. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. Before you retire, save. Before you die, give. - William A. Ward

Friday, January 08, 2010

    I think they should declare "Snow Days" for everyone,not just the kids. Of course, we don't really get snow here in Victoria B.C. much. Who would care here? But, maybe you should write to President Obama and ask him to declare "Snow Days" for everyone. He seems like a deceit sort of guy maybe he will give it some thought. Happy TGIF day anyway!

    I would love a snow day, here in Southern California, that would really hit the world news huh? unless you lived in Big Bear, or the like. I really do not envy you all the cold snowy weather that most of the United States is having, but I do miss the four seasons that you have. Today I have to wait a little later in the afternoon for my walk, as fast as I walk, it is too warm.

    I agree I work at home and I cant even call out sick! Worked from my bed after major surgery! No snow days for me either

WILDCARD1 1/8/2010 5:53PM

    I know what you mean! It is so unfair that the kids get to stay home and play, and we still have to make it into work. However, on snow days here, I know that I work harder at home then I do when I am at work, so maybe getting into work isn't so bad after all!

Have a great weekend, and stay warm!

In With The New

Thursday, January 07, 2010

I have always been big (no pun intended...lol) about trying something new...but there is also a limit, due to allergies, on new things i can try...but this year, we are going full throttle ahead...with caution of course...lol. due to finances, i really needed to find a cheaper detergent...but Tide was the only thing i was not allergic to...and knew it...but we had to try...so i got this detergent called sun...soooo much cheaper...and i've been using it now for a week...and love it...no allergic reaction.... hair conditioner is one of my things...i'm picky... but...had to give a cheaper brand a try... i'm learning what i like...and what i don't...this one stuff, General Dollar brand is pretty good stuff..and a keeper in this home :) we have been trying a few new recipes and even one i totally just made up in my own little head.... and you know what...we loved most of them...and the one we were not too keen on...i am thinking of ways of adding other things to make it more tasty.... i also tried a new dish soap (or new to me) and again...loving it...yea...there are things we have tried that...ewwww...won't use again....lol...but you know...you don't know until you try... my goal is to get us to try something new at least once a week, whether a new product or new recipe...or even a new way to get somewhere...or new whatever... it's all about experiencing life, not just going through the motions. Don't know if you don't like something unless you try try try :)

    That's great Kitty, I think trying new things is the way to go, it adds variety and sometimes we find things we like even better than what we were using. I am glad you have been able to find cheaper versions that don't cause an allergic reaction.
