Sometimes you just know.


I had my first post-op appointment on the 29th. I was so relieved to get away from the damned foley! I asked my doc if he meant to send me away with no antibiotics, and he said yes. I had no idea that my troubles were just starting.

Two days later, it dawned on me that the reason my tummy felt so corrugated was because I had new stretch marks....hmmm. Wednesday saw me in the ER, with an infection so large it had to find a way out. I'd sprung a leak.

After two days in the hospital, I came home to a lot of really kind messages, and great mail. Thanks to all of you for your thoughtfulness. I'm not sure where this puts me for the rest of the month, but hopefully, it will all be on the uptick.

I'm so sorry to hear that things went bad like that. Hope that by now you really are feeling better.

Well you just can't get better can you. I would tell that Dr to find a new guinea pig and never go back to him. Hope you are back to normal sometime in the near future!

I hope you feel better soon.

I have to try Penzey's one of these days, after hearing you rave about them so much.
