Hi all, Sorry I haven't posted lately. I was in the hospital again for 10 days. I came home yesterday. They think that I had a kink in my bowel. My colostomy stopped working for 5 days. They used enemas and irrigation and finally got it to work again. I hope it stays that way. I was very sick again. I hope I'm on the road to recovery now. I have no one to stay with me while my husband works and I'm kinda nervous about that. I sometimes feel like a big bother. I really missed you guys. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm going to read the old posts and try to catch up. LOL. Well, I love you guys and I have really appreciated your thoughts and prayers. Keep them coming. It's been a rough 2 1/2 months. I've only been out of the hospital 2 weeks out of that time. I pray that all the bad is past and I'll start feeling good again. Again, I'm so sorry that no one has kept you posted. My daughter is in Florida on vacation, so she's not been able to keep you updated. She really needed it after all that she had went through with me. I really had them all worried. I asked my surgeon how close I came to dying and he said they didn't have to use the paddles, but my blood pressure had bottomed out during surgery. That they did almost lose me, so I'm very glad to still be here. I love you guys and have missed you. Talk to you all soon.
