A Little Note.....
Thanks for all the well wishes, they have meant a lot. I'm doing okay, trying to make the best of the situation for now
I have a health issue that is not for talking about in journals, at least for me anyhow.....LOL! I'll try to describe it in a short way that I'm comfortable with though. I've had this growth/sac thing that my Doctor has been watching for a few years. It's basically located on the top of my vaginal area, and has been pretty harmless....except it always would swell when I did an extreme amount of sitting directly on it, one example being; 10 days of Disney World in a wheelchair. When I would return home and stay off my feet for a week or two, the swelling would go down to where my life could return to normal. This time....it did not, and I am pretty miserable.
It is hugely swollen, in the way, and interfering with everything. Sitting or laying in a position where I can use the computer is very painful and for awhile I kept doing it anyhow even though I was hurting so badly. I did it because you all mean so much to me and I don't want to lose my friends here because I can't read journals or write very often in mine. But it was making things much worse for me physically than they already were.....so, I finally had to stop. I usually just recline way back in the chair or off to the side, either in this apartment or at my Mom's....but, I just can't do the computer right now, it hurts so badly to sit for as long as it takes me to make the rounds. I'm trying to work on helping my parents, doing my Christmas cards & wrapping my family's gifts a few at a time when I'm up......it's all I can do before I give up and assume a comfortable position again.
I will be having some sort of surgery to remove it after the holidays, although it is going to be a quite complicated situation because of my weight. A lot to pray about. I will do what I can to stay in touch.....Marv is trying to rig something up for me, we just haven't figured out what yet. You never know, he might just come up with something! Until he does though.....please know I think of you all often and miss you very much. I'll be sending good thoughts your way.
