Hi all,
I feel like I have been away for such a long time. I have tried to read the most recent posts to get myself updated.
Thank you all for caring and you are never being nosey or a busy body.
Hubby is doing better than expected, hooray for that!
I have had a few set backs. First was the hypertensive crisis and all the added side effects from that. The hosp was able to get things better controled but the toll on me has been overwhelming. My fatigue has increased to the point of total exhaustion. I am struggling to move, climb stairs and have trouble breathing. Most days I am only able to sit and do very little. I really hate this. I am so tired.
I keep telling myself to get on the computer and update all of you, but thinking and typing felt like too much. I am so sorry to have worried all of you, I hope to be able to try a little harder to stay in touch. You have been such wonderful friends and your caring hearts really show.
peaceful healing

Hi Lisha,
I did some reading on this and it is really a serious situation. I assume since you are home and not in the hospital that you are on medication and have it under control for now. Is this something caused from the cancer, or can it happen from all of the stress you have been through? Please try to stay as peaceful as possible...the LAST thing you need is anymore stress. I'll be keeping you close to my heart and in my prayers. Check in when you feel good...and rest, rest, rest. Love...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)

Hi Lisha,

As you have been doing, I've been trying to review the posts every few days. I have been missing you, knowing that you have been having a difficult time.
Glad to hear that you are home, but praying for a powerful strengthening for you.
You have my every good wish. When I was completely wiped out physically, my doc insisted that I still get up and do some physical activity. BUT, I never had the heart issues that you are dealing with.

Please take care of yourself and do what your body tells you.

Thanks for keeping us updated.

Lisha,

Thank you so much for your posting. As you know, all of us were so worried not hearing from you.

Yes, I can understand not wanting to type when you are not feeling well. YOu must have such mixed emotions. You must think of it this way. You have been through so much. Your own illness, your MIL, trip to Texas, house in the Keys, your shoulder pain, and then Keith. Now the Hypertensive crisis, trouble breathing, and being totally exhausted. Just typing all this is unbearable. I am so sorry for everything you are going through.

Be kind to yourself. Please understand your feelings are so normal. It is exhausting all you've been through. You can only do the best you can.

Your are loved and missed by all of us. Peaceful thoughts and healing. Love Maggie

Lisha,

Like everyone else here I have been thinking of you and wondering how you were doing. I'm so very sad that things have not been going well for you. Just seems like you can't catch a break. But we all really appreciate that you found the energy to let us know whats been happening. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope that things do turn around.

With love and blessings to you,
Leslie
