Sure miss everyone!

Hi All!

I had some PC problems (sounds like a drug addict, doesn't it?! ) for a while and am just back online. What I thought was a monitor/keyboard problem, turned into a CPU disaster! BUT...my hard drive was saved by my SS! Yeah!

I am now at 4 and a half weeks post op...and I am feeling pretty darn great! Yeah! I did go to the Doc yesterday after I had an incident with my incision...it started to bleed a littel even though it seems pretty much healed. Turns out I have a very minor infection in it...and was given some nasty antibiotics to take. My Doc has nagged at me for over-doing it in many ways...I have lifted children, started back at work (I have a cleaning & janitorial business!) and even a few things that he does not know of! (Bad...I know!) BUT...he has said that my healing is going superbly...and already gave me the O.K. for officially returning to work, exercising, and SEX...as soon as I hit the six week mark! Yeah! He said this infection set me back a little...made me vulnerable to things...but that I am still ahead of schedule.

I know it is silly...but I think all of this Terrorist tragedy has made me feel "guilty" of sorts...like I have any business sitting around whining when all of that is going on!? I think that we Princesses are entitled to "pity parties"...my humorous way of saying that we need to be pampered and spoiled and catered to! But it is very hard to accept when there are so many folks who are suffering now. Anyone else feeling the same way? Sort of like these **** Terrorists robbed US of our recuperation time and benefits? I know that sounds silly...and I am over-analyzing....but curious if anyone else felt similar?

Hugs to all....God Bless America!

Sure miss everyone!

Welcome back! I am happy to hear that you are doing so well.

I am just over a week and after my check up w/the doctor I am a little sore. He put some Nitrate(sp) on where I busted two inside stitches and that burns a little still.

Anyway, happy you are here! I hope my pity parties are over for a little while.

Hugs, Nicole

iknow what you mean

i too have felt that my recovery has been inhibited by the attacks...i just don't have that "up" state of mind that would help so much in my recovery, and i do feel useless laying around on the couch all day. other than these things my recovery is going well but slow...i was feeling pretty lousy before surgery so i guess i shoud expect a slow recovery. peace be with you. cynthia

Sure miss everyone!

Kat --

I know what you are trying to say about the terrorist attacks robbing us of our "pamper time". I was having a really bad week last week (2 week's post op) when it happened, and I thought, "I just can't deal with this major thing right now." So, I watched the tv, but was very detached emotionally until about Friday or Saturday. I knew what I was doing, but I felt I had to only deal with my personal healing and couldn't take on anything else. It's hard to put into words, and I felt guilty too. I still can't exactly describe it, but I DO know what you mean.

Glad you are back online. This is such a neat site, isn't it? I stumbled on it after the surgery. I wish I had found it before hand. It would have helped so much! A great group of women, and so good to talk with people who know exactly what we are feeling. Every single question, problem, or feeling that I have had has been experienced by other sisters. At least I know I am not alone. And, suggestions for solutions are wonderful too.

Happy Healing. God Bless America!

Barbara

God Bless Hyster Sisters & America!

Hi Barbara, Cynthia, Nicole, & All!

All of you fellow Hyster Sisters are my lifelines! It was so nice hearing that others may be sharing in this guilt feeling I have! Barbara...you said it so well! It is like, I am torn for my country and my fellow Americans...but I have also seperated myself from this. In the beginning...if I was not watching the t.v., I was taping it! I think part of it is that recuperation seems to make time almost stand still...and now the tragedies have made time even slower! (Who woulda' thunk it possible?! ) Now I am less obsessive...but still concerned and praying and hoping. And yet I still feel guilty about that! Another Sister emailed me that she is just not up to chatty emails...sending forwards...she is having an especially hard time because she is an educator and also has to deal with helping the children to accept and understand this. Can you imagine...I mean...a whole school...not just your own?!

Thank you all...for shedding more light on things. I would not wish any of this upon any one...but it is nice to have you all to go through it all with!

Hugs & Love
Kat
