I just wanted to keep everyone aware that I am not vanishing. I have spent the last day in the Emergency Room of the Hospital hooked up to all sorts of machines. I will be at the point that I can start to get back to things around here in short order. My pneumonia had taken a turn for the worse and to top that off, they found a kidney stone trying work its way through me. That explained the extreme stomach pain, and the blood.

I am out of the hospital though now, and am recovering. The stone will be gone first, hopefully today, but the pneumonia may take a bit. (my body has til Friday to recover when I start my move. by force of will if need be). God Bless, and I will be back soon.

  4. Hope you have a speedy recovery. I had kidney stones a few years ago, i firmly believe there is nothing more painful you can have.

    the nurse that was looking after me even told me she'd rather have another baby than have kidney stones again.

    so seriously, get well soon!

  13. Get Well soon. I know how much of a bummer any kind of respiratory issue is (sufferer of year round allergies that frequently lead to sinus infections and other general nastiness).

    ReplyDelete
  14. Bummer!

    I know a couple of us suspected something was up. It's not like your blog to be so quiet.

    Take good care of yourself mate. Chill out as much as you can, especially with a move on the horizon. Don't concern yourself with us horrible lot, we can keep ourselves busy until you're back.

    Get well soon.

  22. Kidney stones are a damnably painful experience. Been through it several times myself. Glad you're through that aspect of it, and here's hoping the pneumonia gives you a break quickly.

    Having been through that before also, be careful come Friday, too much exertion will see you right back to invalid status pretty quickly. Your lungs are tired. They need some time to recover.

    Your immune system has been taxed by both the disease and the stone(s). Your body has been taxed, what reserves you had have been depleted.

    I know the needs of your life seem to call for a certain degree of extra effort, but so soon after this sort of event could have some consequences. Be careful, take what care of yourself you can.

  33. Get better! Love the site, and wish you well! Pneumonia isn't easy, so rest up as much as possible. And seriously think about hiring movers if you can't on Friday. They probably don't cost as much as long term medical care if you get worse.
