The end of the week
She contacted the ortho clinic and they squeezed me in.
There are five potential signs of infection - edema (swelling), pain, redness, fever, and discharge. I've got four out of the five. The one I don't have is the discharge. The problem is that the radiation treatment could also be responsible for the other four. To be on the safe side we're treating an infection. I'm now on eight different medications and have to get up frequently throughout the night to keep the pain under control. I think we're finally making some progress and hopefully the stitches will come out on Tuesday. I haven't forgotten where I left off on the facelift of the house. I will get back to it soon but I thought you all might want to know that overall I'm doing better, I'm still not out of the pain woods yet but, hopefully I soon will be. Thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers!
We are saddened to hear of your pain and we are pulling for your four symptoms to be due to the radiation.
Nancy is the name of the coordinator of the prayer list at our church. In early April I printed an 8 X 10 of one of your "Kiloword" photos from April 7 and gave it to her as evidence of the power of her and others power. She was thrilled to have it. Last week she fell and after two days found her hip was broken. Perhaps you will want to reciprocate and remember her in your prayers.
We have been thinking of you all weekend and will continue to remember you in our prayers.
Love from Lilla and Harry
We can wait on the story a but longer, its definately the main thing that you are feeling better and continue to feel better.
Love Annie x
Just keep up the good work! I know everybody is proud of you and all that you have accomplished since that awful day in October!
P.S. I have been keeping Clara informed and she said to say hi and she's thinking of you.
This is Dawn Woolgar Cerasale. I am praying for your pain to be lessened and your infection cleared. You write so well in your blogs, you connect people to you immediately. Could there be a short story or a children's book in this? I think you have some real talent.
I go away for the weekend and come back and find you are still in pain. What is the deal? However, my friend the pain will subside soon and you will be up and walking again, running to get outside. The Lord has you in the palm of his hands Jeremy so stay strong and trust in your faith that everything will work out just fine. He has a plan for you and you are just experiencing the "down" side of it.. Besides there is the blog to write, the weddings to attend, the hammock to keep company, work is calling your name, you have entirely too much going on to give in to a little bit of pain!! Medication is nice but work through the pain and it will only make your stronger!!
I expect a full recovery is in order when you write again....Keep smiling, you are so cute when you smile, and that sense of humor...
may all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way.
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.
For all in whose heart dwells respect,
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
may your life prosper in the four blessings
of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.
