So i've got my surgeon on speed dial... [Mar. 22nd, 2008|09:29 pm]
[Tags|, ]

I usually encounter some sort of pain every day - but this past Tuesday, it hurt just to
bend or sit up. >.o Argghh that can't be good - especially when my incision site starts
to swell and turn red. So Leigh & I set off to another ER trip - and my inner voice sighed
and wondered if I could go through this again. Despite the worried look on the intern's face,
the problem was remedied by inserting a needle in the incision site to extract the fluid.

^0^ Yay.. I was able to go home. I was still able to enjoy my most favorite part of the
day - it may sound silly, but I look forward every day to going to bed at night - and being
able to have Leigh next to me. After many months of hospital nights - I've come to cherish
those moments.

Thanks to shinny at Ark bbs

This shot is pre-bullet hole ... (you can see the hole were my feeding tube was though...)

I love my surgeon - heaven knows where I'd be without him.

Ahh Helayne, that sounds so painful ;___; I'm glad the fluid removal helped relieve it. ♥ You're in my prayers on this lovely Easter sunday! Happy Easter if you celebrate :D!

I'm glad it was nothing serious.

Even after so long... Hyde is such a beautiful man.

I understand. I always knew the best part of marriage would be years and years later when you go to sleep next to the one you love and wake up next to him. So sorry for all the health issues, though.

Hang in there! (Like hyde)

I'm sorry you are always in pain, but I hope you have more good days than bad. I'm glad you were able to come home and it wasn't too serious. Mom and I are sending you many well wishes and thinking of you often. Hugs from both of us!

*huggles* What you said about being able to sleep next to your husband is the sweetest thing I've read in a while. You are in my thoughts. Much love!

waah, sorry to hear you've been feeling bad again, but I'm glad you get to go home and spend time with your husband~! ♥ What you said is so sweet, I feel the same way! I think I miss that the most about my hubby being overseas, sleeping next to him (even though he snores... ) ;_;
Thanks for the picspam as always, too! *chu*

Oh Helayne, it's so awful that you've been going through continued health problems for so long :- ( And worse, that you are in pain so much. I'm glad you can enjoy time each night with Leigh, though. <3 That was pleasant just to read about.

Thanks for the neat pictures, too.

:) I love you. I'm so happy that you got to go home, and that the unfortunate pain was relieved easily (without more surgery!). I hope we will be able to see you soon. I have some things for you~ I lost your address. could you e-mail it to me? (bemygoodday@aim.com) Mel and I wanted to be able to give it to you in person, but I understand that you probably have an unpredictable schedule right now, and also that you might not be in the mood for visitors if we did manage to schedule something. My thoughts are always with you!
