Sooooo good to hear from you !!!!! I have been thinking about you everyday and checking my computer for the updates on you. You have traveled a very rough road. I hope that everyday only gets better for you.

Take care and take it VERY easy.

Loved your comment about wearing diapers forever if this doesn't work out. That gave me a laugh. Having watched the others go through what you did makes me know that you will be just fine.

Of course we will all keep praying and watching for your posts just like for Terry, Kim, and all those that have gone before you.

Joce, have you posted on the Hormone Jungle any questions about your infections, etc. I'm still monkeying around with mine. I know that this will all settle down eventually. I'm on Vivelle and going up and down with it.

Anita, how are you doing now? You are so brave!!

And Kim and Sherry and Terry and Barbara and Beverly and who am I forgetting....? All okay?

Wrote Ariel an email yesterday. Will post if I hear from her!

Louise - I'm so glad to see your post! It sounds like you have been through the ringer and I feel for you. Hopefully, the end is near and (as my mentor Barbara said) in a few weeks, you will be as good as new!

Just hang in there, keep pushing fluids, keep taking the meds and watch a lot of TV (or sleep). I'm so glad that we are all doing better.

I am 8 weeks post op for the fistula and don't even think about it (well sometimes I do). That will come for you, also.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Joce

I am so glad that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I called my dr looking for a surgery date next month.

Louise hang in there, things can only get better. Each day you will feel stronger, we are all praying for you.

Louise, Sorry I haven't written to ck on you. Been out of town. So hope your feeling better today. Boy, I know just how you feel. I didn't know if I would surive, but I did and now I feel GREAT. No leaking and things are wonderful again.

Each day will get better and better. Just remember to take it easy. Please don't do anything. We want this to heal. I said it's a good thing that mine is doing good because I couldn't go through that again.

Please take care.

Hello all!

I feel better today, Thank God! Went for my appt to take out the staples-didn't hurt. The lower part of the incision had a pocket of fluid built up (not infected) At first he wanted to open it up and pack it, but then one of the dept heads came in (one of the ones who did the repair surgery) and he said as long as it's draining and not infected, we'll leave it. I go back next week to have the supra removed.

I guess I should go rest-thank you all for all your prayers-they make me stronger every day.

Love, Louise
