I'm going to have a Picc line placed in my groin today - yowzer -
you know your veins are totally fried when that's your remaining option ha!

My surgeon extraordinaire (he has literally saved my life) had a meeting yesterday with me, my better half & my parents. My pesky partial bowel obstruction is now a total obstruction. He was never one to go willy nilly surgery crazy but now it is really necessary.

Surgery is on Friday - I'm a bit nervous, being the queen of complications, but I couldn't ask for a better surgeon. He is also very supportive of my medical marijuana use & he signed off on my medical marijuana renewal application. Initially, I went to a clinic that specialized in med marijuana certification because I thought my doctor might be hesitant to sign off on it. He said that this is the first certification request he has done but was really impressed with how it helped reduce my use of Oxycontin (I haven't used any oxy since my last hospital visit in June)

That's so sweet of you, Helayne! I would have never gotten to here without your help all those years ago. You're truly a wonderful person and I am keeping you in my thoughts always. Ash got to meet the boys the other day and one of them greeted her by name, so the fact that we're on a first name basis with them just... I'm very grateful. I hope everything works out well for you.

Really thinking of you, and for a safe surgery.

I have no idea how medical marijuana is administered, but I hope it's orally. Smoking that is so bad for you.

oh my dear, i totally missed this post. missed a lot lately. m(_ _)m you've had the surgery now, as it is very early sunday, just after 3:30am. i do hope it went well. god knows i've been there a few times too many. abdominal surgery is no piece of cake. >.<

did they do a resection? remove the obstructed bit and connect the rest back together. or did they have to do something like a temporary ostomy to allow the lower bowel to heal?

i know this is going to be a hard time for you. if there is anything i can do to be helpful, let me know. you are certainly in my prayers all of the time, but now in particular as you start the healing process. and your family too. i know that it is very hard for them to see you have these types of problems.

love you, dear woman. *gentle hug* <333333
