Update On ME

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for your wonderful comments and prayers! They really do mean a lot to me. I went to the E.R. and was admitted for several days. I am home now on high powered antibiotics. Since this was my fourth attack of diverticulitis, the doctors are saying my colon is much more likely to perforate. They want to do surgery fairly soon. It is a serious surgery. They will cut out the bad part of my colon then reattach the ends. I go to the surgeon on Monday, then a date  will be set.Also my one eye has a bad cataract and I cannot see the computer well at all. My new glasses are a half hour away at Costco. I am hoping to be well enough to get there today, then I can start posting again!

Hi Ginny. Well I am glad you are home again. Am just thinking, should you be doing work on your computer so much with your bad eye? Sorry to hear you have to have surgery.

I am so sorry you are going to need to have the surgery. Hopefully once you heal, though, you will start feeling a lot better.

Hi Ginny. This sounds like the same surgery Gary had for his Crohn's. He had a resection done in 2006. I sure hope this solves a lot of your problems. I will be praying!

Ginny....so glad that you are home. Sorry to hear that you will be seeing a surgeon. My youngest brother had this same kind of surgery a few years ago, and I know that he took him a while to recover. Trusting that things will go well for you and that you will have a quick recovery...Praying for you..

So sorry to hear about the news Ginny! Since I was/am a bit off from blogging, I have missed asking about you. It's good to hear that you are back home now, I pray and hope that you get well very very soon. I am sure the surgery will make you feel much better from now. Please take proper care and do not worry about the postings, they can always wait and so can we, till you are great to get back again.

I does seem that when it rains, it pours! I'm so sorry Ginny that you've had to go through all of this. I'm so glad you know the One who can take you through every step, praying for you!

Ruth Kelly said...

Thanks for the update. It is amazing how we worry about our blog friends. I, too, have one cataract that is bad but my doctor wants to wait until I am older - I feel I am old enough. Hope you get the right treatment for your colon.

Filip and Kristel said...

We are looking forward to your new posts. Hang on and take care. All the best and we have our fingers crossed for you.

Greetings,
Filip

Hi Ginny, You continue in my thoughts and prayers. May God guide your doctors and may the Holy Spirit help you have peace and a comfort. Have a super pleasant day tomorrow (in spite of it all…).

DawnTreader said...

Oh, you poor thing. I do hope you get a weekend of peace before you have to see the doctor again. Hope the new glasses will be helpful - just don't "overdo" things! Keep us informed if you can but don't put your ambitions so high that you exhaust yourself! ♥

Tamago said...

Ginny, bless your heart. Seems when it rains it pours with you. Trust all goes well and you will be back stronger than ever. I will miss you and pray you will be blessed with a rapid healing.

Terri Buster said...

Oh Ginny, I am sorry to hear that you have to have the surgery...sending prayers for a quick recovery. I do have a friend who went through this, and she feels 100% better now.

Lady Jane said...

This is the same surgery my hubby had to remove his cancer. You are lucky it is low enough so that you will not need to be put on a bag. You are in my prayers dear one. This surgery is serious yes but it is done so routinely now that you will be just fine. Please keep us posted on your recovery. Love, LJ

Cindy said...

Thanks for letting us know. I hope you get your glasses and everything else works in your favour as well. Fear must be upon you at this time. I'm prayer for you and remember the doctor's have done this over and over. Wishing you well my friend
