Still kicking
« on: February 10, 2018, 05:35:47 PM »
 :D Hello all.  Finally got connected with my computer.  So I have been playing cleanup and catch up..
Short Story:
Jan 3: Major hernia repair. Was supposed to take 3.5 to 4 hours turned into 8 hours
Jan 9: Discharged to home
Jan 19: Back for stitch removal. Instantly admitted for surgery for infection pocket and other bad stuff.
Jan 19: thru Feb 8th they did another 8 surgeries. Wound Vac removed to expose a very large wound.
Feb 8: Transferred to another hospital for twice a day special nursing care to unpack and pack the wound with gauze. I refer to it a a gut shot with a torpedo.
Still here long days. Several weeks before any hope of seeing my critters
A prayer or two would be appreciated if you find a spare minute.
My shows may be a bit short this year as there is no sawdust flying  :)
Hope you are all doing great!
I'm from North Dakota

Judy sorry to hear of your problems.  My prayers and thoughts for a complete and speedy recovery.  I had something similar happen to me when my appendix ruptured.  I was in the hospital for 53 days because my body rejected every stitch the doc put in.  Keep the faith my friend and get well.

Oh, Judy-what a way to start the year!  Mercy!  I can't imagine so many surgeries!  So sorry, Girl.  You're on my prayer list.  Hope you are soon home to sawdust and critters (both are good therapy-along with a little glass of vino ;) ).
