So glad to see we're all doing so well now.

I had my first trip out yesterday. Probably did more than I should have but I'm not to bad today considering.

I love reading all your posts every morning. I love your thoughts & prayers, it's helped to keep me company over the last 3 weeks.

Looks like I'm probably going back to work next week. Just few hrs a day to start but I'll see how I go. (own my own business so thank god I've got a choice)

Dolphin so sorry about your mum, can't imagine how hard that must have been for you, but I'm sure she's with you, giving you strength to recover well.

Mew68 I think you can post photos through your 'owner cp' sight

Wishing you all another wonderfull day.

well, i went to the ceremony and the reception for a while. i was doing good until i was walking back to the table from a trip to the ladies room when i must have either stepped wrong or too fast and i felt a pull on the right side. it hurts now. the swelly belly is huge. i am sure just being out and about was way too much but i am not exhausted like i thought i would be. on my way to sit in my recliner and watch movies with my hubby. it was good to get out and see some of my church family. the groom loved his cake and the bride thanked me and told me it was perfect. i did get a picture of the groom with his cake too. that will be a memory for me. i am so thankful that i was able to make that cake for him. he is a very dear young man to me. he was one of my youth in the youth group and i was able to see him grow so much. i am very proud of the man he has become, so it was a blessing for me to be able to make that cake for him. anyway, will try to figure out how to post the pic for you all to see.
have a great evening

Sigh..I've been pondering re-evaluating that friendship because everything is all about her, although she did come visit me in the hospital and did come to watch a DVD last Friday although I prepared all the evening's treats with dh's help. The other thing that I thought was rude was she sat down & proceeded to read the paper because they don't have delivery to their house...is it too much to ask when someone wants to visit you that they 'visit with you?'

I understand how you feel. I keep wondering if my emotional state aka hormones are causing me to be over sensitive but I'm thinking that God has allowed me this time to heal not only physically but mentally in every area of my life.

I have been friends with someone like this for years. I had not heard from her prior to or after my surgery until yesterday and she was like "did you have the surgery"? She went into her normal conversation where everything is all about her. I finally told her I was tired and could not talk anymore. I am also thinking about family members who have not even called to see how I am. I am getting married in December and because its my second marriage we are only planning a small ceremony and a dinner for family and a few close friends. Well, my fiancee and daughter do not understand why I feel bad about not inviting these very same relatives to our wedding when they have not thought about me once even though I have always been there for them.

Perhaps thats why books are not keeping my interest like they normally do, I have some soul searching to do. I'd said before the surgery that this was the beginning of my new life and now I realize that its not just going to be in a physical way but in all ways.

I'm up for the journey, the best is truly yet to come for us all! Love yall!
Dont you just love those people who call themselves friends, yet when you need them most, their true colors shine through. I've had to rid myself of these so-called friends over the years and my life is so much richer for doing so. I'm at a place in my life where I am chosing to be surrounded by people with positive energy to contribute to my overall wellbeing, rather than detract from it. It's not always easy to let these people go, but well worth it. My husband refers to them as psychic vampires -- they suck the energy right out of you with their ongoing tales of woe. Friendships are about give and take. When I'm in need, you are there for me. In turn, when you're in need, I'm there for you.

I got married for the second time on 12/31/05. My husband and I came to the realization that since most weddings are more about keeping family and friends happy, we would fly to Kaui for ours. Anyone who wanted to join us was more than welcome to do so. We had a beautiful, very small ceremony on the beach. There were a total of 7 of us there, and it was perfect. Good luck with your upcoming wedding, and remember that it's just about the two of you.

Hi everyone,
went to the mall today with my wonderful son. He took good care of his mom! I am so proud of the man he is becoming. God sent him to me as a baby with a drug addiction and c.p. I adopted him at age 2. He was my rock when mom was sick, and more so now. When I went through some of my mom's things I came across an initial ring that belonged to my brother (died 1972) We took it to a jeweler to have the initials changed and resided for him. He has a heart of gold, and I know he will cherish the ring of an uncle he never knew. Then mom got to shop at penny's. Afterwards we went and had a nice dinner, now I'm ready to rest, even though I have cloths to fold! I will be good and leave that for another day!!!
mew68 glad the cake u made brought such joy to the groom.
thanks to everyone for thinking of me.
I called mom every night or she would get mad at me, and when I went to visit her she would say call me when u get home! I would say I'm 50 yrs old and u still want me to call u! Her reply would be, u will miss me some day! She was right as always cause I do miss her very much.
wishing everyone a happy and healthy day

Daragh - I totally relate to what you said:

I did go to Target yesterday and man am I hurting today! I was only out of the house a total of 75 minutes but I feel like I ran a marathon or something. My belly is burning and I'm having pain in my groin area too. I've made myself walk around the house a little today but my belly hurts with every step. It's much better when I'm laying or sitting except for the sunburn feeling. Anyway, it seems like we're in the same boat...I hope it's headed for the Cayman Islands! LOL

I had a couple really good days prior to my shopping trip so hopefully tomorrow will be a good one. I'm trying to decide if I should go to church or not. I really miss seeing everyone and I love praising God in song along with my church family. I'll have to see how I feel in the morning.

I watched a wonderful movie on Friday. It's called Amazing Grace. I think it's a fairly new release to video. Anyway, the main story is about how slave trade was abolished in England. There were so many life lessons hidden through out the movie. I didn't know that the hymn Amazing Grace was written by a man who ran a slave ship before claiming Christ as his savior. That is just a small part of the movie. Anyway, I highly recommend it.

I'm exhausted just reading what you have all been up to! I am on lounge duty today, I just got the evil eye off DH for moving around too much. My tummy feels good today but I'm still having a bit of bleeding. My incision has healed really well and is just a pink line, no scab at all.

Thank you all for sharing your lives with us, there are some wonderful people out there and I love reading about your lives. Hugs to you all.

well, i know i posted a little while ago but i had to come back and tell you all that my tummy sure is sore right now! i guess all the moving around i did today and yesterday. i so want to go to church tomorrow but i am not sure i can make it. my swelly belly is very swelly right now!!! my incision is kind of scabby, and it looks like i had a little bit of weeping. it doesn't look infected from what i can tell but will keep an eye on it. none of my tape was fallen off yet and i am 2 1/2 weeks post op. i thought by now some of it would be falling off. they told me not to take it off that it would fall off by itself. i am very nervous about my incision getting infected. i try to keep it dry and air it out but my belly does hang over it. i blow dry it after every shower.
well, i guess i need to get back on that recliner. we just watched one movie and are about to start another one!! hope everyone has a good night

A few minor setbacks...

Good Evening Ladies,

I so enjoy reading your posts throughout the day. I use them as a guage to see how I am doing compared to others. I know that we are all different and had different procedures for different problems, but in the end, we are all trying to make it through this phase called recovery.

Mew68, I can so relate to your experience in the hospital with being oversedated. As I mentioned in my original post, I, too, was oversedated for whatever reason. I slept for the first 2 days in the hospital. When the staff or visitors tried to wake me, I would fall right back to sleep while they were talking to me. I even fell asleep on the potty the first time the nurse helped me to the bathroom!
I, too, had a decrease in my oxygen saturation (not sure what it was - too sedated to ask or even care at the time) and had to have oxygen for a couple of days. They also took my morphine away from me along with most narcotics. My doc switched me to Motrin 800mg since I developed a fever. Believe it or not, the Motrin kept my pain at bay! My friend, who works at the hospital, commented that I was very pale. She later told me how concerned she was and she called my doctor. Being the true friend she is, she took a photo of me during that time for me to see later - little did I know that she would be showing it other people!! She has been having fun with that at church!

The last couple of days I have had quite a bit of pain and yesterday, I started back with a bloody discharge/bleeding. I have been trying to stay off my feet. Even my husband helped out today by cleaning the kitchen! That was a big help and a huge surprise when I woke from my nap!

Dolphinsplash, you are in my prayers. I don't know how you are getting through each day. I lost both of my father when I was 29 and my mother when I was 39. I have a 4 year old which is also adopted - he was born 2 weeks after my mother died. Anyway, emotionally and mentally you must be a wreck. I applaud your courage and remember you are not alone. God will be with you each step. Reading about talking with your mother daily on the phone reminded me about after my fathers death, if the phone rang around 5:30 or so, I would think it was him calling - just for moment until I realized that he was gone. He called me everyday about that time. It is a fond memory - and it is memories like those that will sustain you and later will comfort you. Good luck with your treatments.

Time to go now and get my "baby" ds ready for bed - time changes tonight - YUCK!!!! I hope you all have a very restful and peacefull night.

I'm out and about!

Hello ladies,
It's been a few days since I logged on. I had my two week appointment Wed. 3/5 and everything was well. My doctor advised light house work and lifting, and I can drive again! He also told me to walk more . I felt great, until I was bold enough to think I was ready for WalMart. That was trying . I was exhausted after about fifteen minutes or so. I sat down and waited for my loving husband to finish the shopping, went home and crawled into bed. I have hung around the house for the past two days. I am taking it easy for now. I guess I was so excited to be abe to leave my house I didn't know what to do. I learn my lesson. I feel great, and will venture out to wroship on tomorrow, walk in and sit down!

God Bless you all!
