A Short Sick Leave



Hi everyone!!! Last night, I spent twelve hours in the E.R. After a scan and other tests, the doctors determined that beside having MRSA, my diverticulitis has returned, and may have spread to a wider area. So now I am taking two antibiotics, a nausea drug, and pain medicine. Each time the diverticulitis comes back, it raises the odds for colon surgery. Anyway, I will be taking a short break until I start to feel better. I hope I will be back very soon, LOVE you guys!!

First of all, I must tell you I adore those fall leaves, they look like Japanese maples.
Prayers for your recovery.

Praying for you, Ginny, and hope you are feeling better soon.

My Mom (RIP) had diverticuli (found it from a case of diverticulitis) but she managed it successfully for decades without further problem.

She took Metamucil twice a day (morning & night... without fail) and she also avoided any foods with little seeds (tomatoes, strawberries, buns with sesame seeds on top, etc.)... in other words, any foods that contain substances that might get lodged in one of the pockets of diverticuli.

She also strictly stayed away from caffeine & soda pop. Both those things her doctor told her would play a death knell for her colon & problem.

I mention those things in case they might help. You don't have to have surgery for diverticuli but you must be strict about the things you ingest if you want to avoid it.

I will be praying!!

Love~ Andrea
XOXOXO

That sounds awful, Ginny. I do hope the antibiotics and other medicines have started to kick in. I know it must all be draining you of energy though... You're in my thoughts! ♥

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I haven't been reading my blog list the last few days and just now noticed you're on 'sick leave'.

Dear dear Ginny...I hope by now that your health is improving!!! You'll be in my thoughts and hoping for you to return soon.

Get well.

soory to hear this. A speedy recovery to you

Karina Rheaume said...

By short sick leave, I suppose you mean the blog and work. Don't rush your recovery so you can avoid complications. Plan your diet, and avoid fiber. I hope you get well soon, Ginny! Karina@ US Health Works
