Thank you again...

Monday, December 15, 2008


Hi Guys! First I want to thank each and every one of you for all of the prayers, thoughts, e-mails, cards, letters, comment, well-wishes and thoughts. Every one of them has helped make this recovery a little easier. I am feeling stronger and the pain has reduced a lot. I am still dealing with the extra fluid and 3 of my surgical sites have become infected. The only one I really worry about is the graft site on my leg (because of being Diabetic) so if I could just ask all of you for one more round of prayers-it would be to heal my leg.
Thank you ahead of time!

I know that I have been very selfish during this whole thing and that is not like me but I have been scared to death.This was all so sudden and this time of year is hard anyway. I do think of each and everyone of you and you all remain in my prayers. I'm afraid that I have lost track of a lot because I haven't felt like getting on the computer very much. I will have to start all over with my food tracking and everything. I have been bored and depressed and eating everything in sight for days now. My sugars are crazy and starting tomorrow I will be keeping an honest food diary again. It will be a while before I can get back into things but Cardiac Rehab says that if this infection clears up and I don't have any further problems, I might be able to return to bootcamp in 2-3 months. That was good news to me!

Saturday night was Bobby's Christmas Party at work. They were all so very nice to us during this mess and made sure that Bobby had a Gift Card for Cracker Barrel so he could eat a good Thanksgiving meal. Wasn't that sweet? He told me tonight though that I hurt his feelings because I've been griping about not getting to have Thanksgiving like every other year. He said "you hurt my feelings because I spent Thanksgiving with you in the hospital and we were together and I even shared my broccoli casserole with you...we had Thanksgiving together and you were alive!" Sure made me take my head out of the sand! I guess I have been a big baby through this whole thing.

Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I'm among the living and wanted to thank you for everything and wish you all a very Merry CHRISTmas!!!-Leslie emoticon

    Well, he does have a point but since you were in the hospital and in pain, you are forgiven.
    I am so glad to hear that things are improving. I will add prayers that the infection in the 3 sites heals very rapidly

    Hugs

    I pray that you have a full recovery and be back at it soon! I am sure that he was really worried about you and is relieved that you are doing better! You take care of yourself and that husband.

    Sometimes we just HAVE to be selfish, but I'm always glad when those times are over, aren't you? Looks like you are on the mend (prayers for leg wound already off!) and your sweet, supportive husband is right there by your side. You look wonderful! And next year, you can do your more traditional Thanksgiving if you like, but I personally think Cracker Barrel does a great job!!! emoticon

    Have a safe, healthy, and blessed holiday season. emoticon
