A Quick Update Again

Sunset before surgery

Sunset before surgery

Hello friends. Thanks to all of you who have been faithful in checking my site for updates to know how I am and how to pray. I am longing for the day when I feel up to posting fun stuff again. Oh to write of my goings-on of having fun and what I am up to.

For now I am still recovering and hoping to feel better one day at a time. I am definitely better than the first few days after surgery, just still struggling to make it to that 100% mark, or even 90% for that matter. The surgery pain is almost completely gone. I still have some crampy-pulling feelings, like it is just still raw inside and healing. The “attacks” from the gallbladder are gone, but now it is a struggle of what to eat. Ironically the doctor and all the paperwork I was given say to eat a regular diet with no restrictions. I think that is silly, so I have done my research online and have followed closely a “post gallbladder surgery” diet. However, even with that I am struggling. Everything makes me sick and I have to be close to a bathroom at all times. I may end up calling the doctor this week to ask what I can do about this.

I have still been having some pretty bad pelvic pain and am not sure what to think of this, nor what doctor to talk to about it. I have been in physical therapy for it since May, been to a pain-specialist with two surgeries in the past year for it, and been to my family doctor who sent me to the physical therapy. My orginal GYN that has dealt with it for years is the one who sent me to the pain specialist and had basically washed his hands of it. So I don’t know if I should try getting back into him or what. He though, is the one who caught my gallbladder problems and got me sent to the surgeon for that. So I just don’t quite know where to go from here for that.

I have not been sleeping well for the last few nights and that is really frustrating. Even with sleeping meds I am still not falling asleep for hours and then only sleeping for three hours at a time after that. This is frustrating in itself.

For those of you who have called and have not heard back from me, I am sorry. I am honestly overwhelmed right now and not much in the mood to talk. I love all of you and appreciate your concern. I am just quiet right now and not really up for much conversation. It is one of those odd things in life. I want support and want love and encouragement, but it is hard to talk about what is going on and feels better sometimes to shut myself off. If you are on facebook, you can find me on there and at least most always get a “status update” to know how things are going. I tend to update that once a day atleast, even if just from my phone.

In other things, the weather here has turned to fall and I love it. Though these next few days it is actually going to rain and be winter-like, then back to Fall weather again. It is my goal this week after the rain goes to get out and enjoy a walk through the park with the fall leaves. Perhaps some of you locals would like to join me? I am making that my goal I guess for the end of the week. My good friend says I have to have goals to work towards, so I am setting them even if they may seem small to some.

For you prayer warriors out there, please pray for continued healing. Please pray for strength mentally and emotionally. It is a real struggle these days to make it through. Please pray that God would reveal his will to me as I seek His direction in these next few months. Where do I go from here?

Again friends, thank you SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, for all you have done. Your love does mean so much to me.

Blessings to you and yours.
