    Going to hospital (My crappy experience, #30)

    I'll go to hospital tomorrow, for further diagnosis regarding all the messed up bones and joints in my back, and for a possible pain treatment. No surgery this time, (at least as far as I know) but I hope I'll get some information on possible future surgeries; about the options I have... I was told I would have to stay for one and a half weeks, but I hope it won't take so long. I will miss my girls!

    Most likely, I won't have internet access, so you won't hear from me the next one or two weeks. Just thought I'd let you know.

    Hope I'll be back soon.

    Prayers and blessings and best wishes to you, Kirsten. I hope you will get some answers.

    And I trust Lily and Luna will be in good care while you are gone?

    Sorry to hear you will be going back into the hospital. I wish you the best and hope they can heal you up and get rid of your pain. Your girls will miss you too.

    Get well soon

    I hope your stay is short and that the Dr.s find out what is going on with your bad back. Life can be a real downer sometimes. Keep your chin up and hope for the best.

    We will all be thinking about you and hoping positive outcomes.

    You will be in our prayers. Hmm, can whoever is looking after the girls keep us humans updated, maybe?

    Thank you everyone. Well, I don't have much hope that this really helps; after all, they can hardly stiffen all the joints and vertebras in my back...

    My mom will be taking care of Luna and Lily, twice a day. The rest of the time, they will be alone here at home. This is going to be so hard for all the three of us!

    Spinal fusion works wonders. I could hardly walk across a room without being in excruciating pain, and after the fusion - no pain at all. And contrary to what some people think, it DOES NOT limit your mobility to any great extent.
