Wonderful Blessings

I don't have pictures to post and I have been pretty been out of it for months and months. And it is a little overwhelming to think of backtracking but I will just say that I am doing sooo much better. Some know of the situation and some may not. I had surgery in TN and spent almost a month recooping at my sisters before coming home. I had 8 inches of my intestine cut out and a blockage the size of a softball cut out as well. I have had many things that I have learned through this long long trial. It has worked up to this since November of last year. I would not want to have anyone else go through it nor do I want to go back and do it again but I have learned an aweful lot. I can now eat(I am still scared with many things but...) I can eat and eat without throwing up every day!!! There have been sooooo many wonderful people that have helped us through this trial. OUr big family has really been through a lot and it will take time for all of us to adjust again but we are a family and will be stronger for this. So having said that my goal is to get back to my normal. Which includes keeping up with everyone and the blogs. Also blogging my self.

Welcome back!! I hope that you continue to feel better.

You are right, your family will be stronger as you work together to be "normal" again.

Love you

Darn right! You have done amazlingly. And let me tell you all, about a week and a half after her surgery, she was back to that gut laugh that sends us all reeling with laughter. It was music to my ears! I love that laugh and it had been so long since I had heard it. Welcome back!

An Answer to my Prayers! - and Amen to that laugh. It has been over a year since I heard that laugh and it is sooo good to hear again!! We love you Dana and I was lying in bed just this morning thinking about how many people have been affected by this. Even people we do not know have been praying for you! Thank you all for your prayers and loving concern and support.
