Already September!!!

I can't believe that school has started already and it will be fall soon. I am so very sorry to have kept all of you hanging for so long, but we have been stopped in our tracks quite a few times this summer. I think the last I posted, I was waiting for my biopsies. Unfortunately I did not get them. The day before, I went to the E.R. with an abscessed colon. The surgeons had a conference about me and decided not to do a bowel re-section at this time. I was admitted for a few days, then sent home on strong meds. If I get one more attack, they say it would be bad. Then earlier this week Phil went to the E.R. and had to have an emergency appendectomy. We have been relying on the kindness of family and friends to help us out. I hope I do not lose any of my blog friends, I am hoping to start posting again at some point. My biopsies are now scheduled for next month if I can stay healthy enough. Please feel free to e-mail me any time and I hope to start posting when things get better!!

I just looked out the window and, after a morning's rain, the sun is out. I turn on my computer and there you are "shining" through. With the help of Sandra, I've been keeping up with you and Phil and praying for you.
I'm so happy to "hear" from you and will continue to pray for you. Take good care my friend.

Best,
Bonnie

I do understand some of what you are feeling right now. Praying, Praying Praying in Jesus' Name.

I am so sorry about all that has been going on for you and your husband. Remember when things get so very tough, God will be carrying you He will be with you and your hubby all the way. I hope you feel better soon and would love to talk to you someday. All my best to you both.

So glad to see you posting even if just briefly. I've been reading Sandra's updates. So sorry that Phil had to have surgery too in the midst of it all. The situation must be really tough on both of you, and your friends and family. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and hoping that you'll stay healthy enough to have your tests done next month. ♥

Hi Ginny!

So glad to hear from you. I keep you in my prayers and I am sure everything is going to turn out fine in the end. I am sorry to hear about Phil having to go through the pain, but God has His ways of taking care.

Though you are sorely missed, but do not worry of posting now... first get fully well alright soon. We are ALL with you! Please take care.

I hope you start feeling better Ginny. I am glad to see you post. Sorry to hear about Phil - hope his recovery goes well. Both my dad and uncle had emergency appendectomies last year - not fun, but they felt so much better afterwards!

SweetMarie said...

It's so wonderful to see you posting! We've all thought of you! I've asked Sandra about you...don't want to bother you. I couldn't believe the news about Phil. I hope both of you are doing better. I've had you in my thoughts and prayers and that's where you will stay. I got a new kitten. My son named her Foxy after the Arctic Fox. She's in one of my posts. Hugs to you Ginny!

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

That is some roller coaster of health issues your family is on! Darn. May the prayers of friends and family be of comfort and for sure bloggers will hang on.
I too struggle but not with tummy these days. It's my eyes.
October and fall are here and I just hope you get a chance to send just a little line to keep us in the loop. We are here and wishing for the best.
