group hug


I am sending out a great big group hug to everyone for all of your well wishes. I have read every one of them and feel so blessed. 

I had a complication in the past couple of days that sent me for a very unpleasant 10 hour stay in the ER on Wednesday. It was caused by the anesthesia and narcotic pain pills, that even though I had cut way down on this time, still caused me problems. 

I am taking this time to rest up and heal, and trying to deal with the pain without pain pills, but can't wait to get back to visiting with you. 

With Love,
Laura

  2. Well that sounds pretty scary and horrid. I hope it gets resolved soon. It's no fun dealing with chronic pain.

  7. Laura, Once I had a foot surgery, the dr. asked me if I was having pain. I told him I was, he said," then take the pain meds I gave you". I told him I didn't like how they made me all fuzzy headed...he said "hey people pay money to feel that way". I don't think he was teasing. Scary. I hope you can recover 100% and feel brand new. Prayers to you. xoxo,Susie

  9. Best of luck. I don't blame you for wanting to stay off the painkillers as much as possible.

  10. Oh no...sometimes the pain meds are the hardest thing to cope with. Especially when you end up having terrible reactions. Keep resting, Laura. Thinking of you every day.
    Hugs, Tina

  12. I sure do hate to hear that you had a set back to your recovery. I try not to take many pain pills whenever they're prescribed to me too. They can have some bad side effects and also become addictive! You do have to be careful. I hope you're having a better day today and continue to do well from here on out.

  13. Hang in there. I wish I could be there to help. But I'd be hobbling. Guess we'd need our own caregiver. Please take care of yourself. Hugs to you.

  30. Group Hug, Group HUG!!!! I missed the posts, because since I changed my blog to wordpress I don't read the blogs on my own roll anymore... yaaacks.

    But I came looking for you and saw this!!!! SO my guess is you did the other knee surgery and you are recovering... and hurting... I am so sorry, my friend!!!! But yes, the worst is over and you WILL get better like you did with the other one!
    I am so sorry about the complication... This doesn't sound good.
    I will be praying that you get better SOON!
    Lots of LOVE,
    Claudine
