It sounds like you are in good hands at a good place. Just try to take it one day at a time, God will give you the strength for today...everyday. So you have your computer with you? That's cool!
    Yea I am home now for now. but I just wanted this done. And now fear is getting the better of me.. Stupid huh..

    Oh, I thought you were still in the hospital. I know how much "trouble" my husband and Phred got into when they used their cell phones in the hospital - figured you must be hiding your laptop under the sheets!

    I am depressed.. I knew something was wrong when I woke up, and the doctor was sitting there at a chair next to the bed. At the news of what it is, I started to cry..
    WHY AM I ALWAYS the "remote possiblity"???? This is now the 3rd time a "remote possiblity" has come true. When I tore up my knee after the break healed they said blah blah " and a remote possiblity the maniscus ( spelling) is so badly torn, you will wake up with a cast .. I did!.

    NOW- I am more worried and scared.. I understand they cant know all things- but that ray of hope I never would have thought of, held onto, got dashed to pieces. I can even see the fear on my husbands face...
    Well- darnit ( sorry to curse) I have been saying for over a year how I feel.. Just like I did with my leg, or my knee- Doctors must think people are hypocondriacs ( spelling?).. Well- I AM NOT.. A normall active woman goes into a shell for months unable to do jack beans- even housework is a major adventure- and there isnt a problem???
    You know the joke of this? Zubin is one of two therapy dogs I have that works with children with cancer- somehow he knows when things are turning. He gets silly with a child that is " not doing well", then presses his head in a childs lap " that is progressing"- only to slip suddenly out of no where into a more serious situation. He has been putting his head in my lap for months now. Pressing- like he knows something is progressing with his mother. Well ZUBIN WAS THE ONLY ONE RIGHT HERE.. I am not bashing my doctor- he is one of the top in the whole Northern Va. area and my hospital is one of the top 100 in the country- ( award and all!) so they know.. and I know they cant see all things in a ultrasound- but I would rather not have the hope, and given the worse case as " how it is" and anything else would feel like a blessing and not "dashed hopes".
    I am sorry to vent- I am just upset, depressed, and now more worried. I am placing this in Gods' hand as He knows what is best for me in the future and the best way to remedy the ailment. It is terribly hard thought not to feel confused and scared..
    This pet talk has been a God sent. It lets me think of anything else other than what is in my face 24/7.. I want to thank you all for your wonderful support. I have gotten so many positive wonderful pm's and I really do appreciate it.. Really!
    I'm so sorry for all you went through.I'm putting in extra prayers for you.I went through some major surgerys and they cut my organs up by mistake.The worst being my bowels.I needed major bowel repair.I'm glad to be alive.
    I'm glad your alive.
    And...I'm with you...Doctors DO think most people are hypocondraics.I can understand that but when all turns out true with what the patient says and they still give you that look...it's very sad for us.It hurts emotionally.
    We as people know our bodys.
    I hope you get well through all this and the future brings much good health and happiness for you.
    Prayers for you from us in Maine.
    Carla,Mike and our cats

    Thank You Kim for this wonderful siggy

    I just got a call. They got enough into this, to prevent infection they have to wait until jan 3rd. The holidays and staffing at the hospital is not helping to move this up. At holidays, with short staffing etc they say they do not do surgeries that can wait. That doesnt stop an emergency, but I would not have my doctor. At this point, I would rather the same one as I have been through ENOUGH.. ( mutter mutter....kicking dirt clods- mutter mutter....) Meanwhile I feel like- "more hurry up and wait???" .. I know he has a right to a vacation.. but.. I am still muttering. .. They tried for the 14th. No go- too booked. I am wondering if they could move someone that could wait.. I suggested as they " quote look into the matter" as I need to cover my recovery with someone that can here. My husband is a top engineer - his place shuts down for two weeks at christmas- easily home with no problems as no one can cover his job..
    ( This really stinks... mutter mutter- more kicking dirt clods- mutter mutter..)

    But perhaps you'd be better off getting the surgery done when people are not too distracted and overstretched by holiday events?

    You'll be in our prayers.

    The Purpose of Prayer

    I'm not downplaying the worth of this thread or against the intent in any way. I LOVE that this thread is here.

    However, i also want to share one of my favorite pieces ever written.

    http://www.nierica.com/prayers/ExplorePrayer.html

    Let us never forget to also give thanks.

    Please, if your dog is arthritic look into getting it Elk Velvet Antler. Look up my posts on it, PM me, or look it up on a search engine; but please if you love your dog and want it to live many more years consider this option. I've seen so many posts on here about dogs needlessly suffering. I can't make a new post about EVA every time so this plea is going here. EVA also helps with other ailments such as anemia.

    Also, this may be helpful...

    http://www.pathways-to-peace.com/

    View Presentation (Only takes a few minutes to load even on dial-up.)

    Make sure sound is on. (bottom left)

    (For some reason i thought it looked better on my old laptop.)

    I pass out the address to this site whenever i find someone in need. I also use it as a holiday card

    Someone on a message board posted it years ago and for me it stuck. It isn't religion specific even though it's a religious site hosting it. The words spoken with in are words of wisdom. The first time i seen it, i seen how purple it was and almost closed it right away (My third least liked color then.) By the reviews people were giving it on the board though i HAD to check it out. I'm glad i did.

    Hope you all enjoy. If you like it, please pass it on.

    Thank you Dorothy and Borzoimom. I'm glad you liked it!

    Just trying to do my part to make the world a better place. Even if i just make one person smile or relax a little then i have done my job. (Just because i've helped one person doesn't mean i'm going to stop there though! Giving happiness is addicting and contageous!)
