I was hanging out last Monday evening thinking that life had been a bit boring…that our life had fallen into a sort of rut and that nothing eventful had been happening.
So, after working all day at another part-time job that I picked up to try and get our financial situation on an even keel, I suddenly felt a couple of sharp stabbing pains in my lower abdomen. They quickly went away. No big deal, right? By 10:00, I just didn’t feel too great. I headed off to bed.
Two hours later and I am starting to throw up. And have cramps across my mid-abdomen.
Let’s fast forward through the next couple of hours. (I wish I could have). Emergency room, abdominal hernia, intestines where they aren’t supposed to be, incarcerated colon, diverticulitis and a mightily impressive white blood cell count that bordered on septic.
Five days and one surgery later, I am back home and doing okay. I’m resting and walking and trying not to think about the medical bills that will soon come rolling in.
My mantra – All shall be well…
There’s probably more that I could write, but I hear the recliner calling my name. I’m not really moving forward in any discernible direction right now, but I am trying to stay positive.
Let’s just say that I haven’t given up.

Thank you for your kind words. It is sooooo hard to rest. I have all these voices in my head telling me not to be lazy and to be strong and get busy. I read about your recent decluttering efforts. Yea you! I don’t think the decluttering ever truly gets “finished” but I do know that sometimes when I look around my house its easier to spot things that I don’t love. There are fewer of them, but I am always watching for a chance to get rid of something that doesn’t make the cut. Hang in there and just pitch five things if you can’t manage more. Progress, not perfection!
So glad to hear you are home and resting. Please focus your thoughts and energy on healing and let others love and pamper you!
