Smart kitty, go splat when you can.

As for dying, apparently I didn't, even though I felt like I did. I'm home now, and feeling crappy as hell. I went in for my chemo today, and was told to come back Wednesday because I was still too sick. Hopefully I'll be able to get it tomorrow. I'll post more about it later, but my first time in a VA hospital was kind of interesting. They;re definitely understaffed and all that stuff, but one NP there showed some interest in trying to help me, thankfully.

Thanks for passing that on. I finally got sprung, so the VA isn't going to kil me this time. Give them credit for trying, though.

I had an email from LW, and I think she is in the hospital. Everyone who reads this please send your prayers for her continued healing. Our love and our hearts to you LW.
Thank you, they're appreciated.

LW, it's good news that someone at the VA gave you a little hope. Maybe you can keep that momentum going. I sure hope so. Is the respiratory infection better? How are you feeling?

We all care about you and it totally sucks that you have to have the old stuff, with the new stuff and suffer the loss of Jeff on top of that.

I've been waiting for you to tell me to stick my 'deep breaths' where the sun doesn't shine. Hang in there Wolfe.

So when will you know more? BTW, I got your message and am planning to send you the cane, but can't commit to that until Jeff's sister sends it to me. Hopefully that'll be in the next week. What length do you need? I don't know the lenght of this one, I'll have to measure it when I get it.

How's your back doing? Haven't heard from you for a few days, I'm starting to worry.

BTW, we all need to pray hard for Magnus' surgery coming up soon. Also for Silent_Runner as her health problems are ongoing.

Yeah, she did do as much as she could for me. Of course I was on anti-biotics and oxygen, but she also ordered breathing exercises while I was there. Plus she told me that I was smart to insis this be treated by the VA, so it's documented as service-connected. She says it'll just make my claim stronger when I can get re-evaluated to raise my disability rating.

The URI feels much better, but my chest is still hurting like hell from everything that's gone one lately. The good news there I was told that I didn't actually re-injure anything. I just aggravated and inflamed the crap out of the existing injury. I didn't have my chemo until Wednesday this week, I went in Tuesday, but they made me wait because I was still too sick. Last week I had the worst reactiuon to the chemo I've had yet, and this week is shaping up to be a bad one, too. I feel like s*** already.

I've come to the concllusion that even if I hadn't gotten shot or cancer, 2012 would be a major suck year for me. Between some other crap going on in my life, and especially losing Jeff. That's going to hurt for a long time. Plus a couple friends deciding they weren't anymore just adds to that. Then add still recovering from getting shot, and the other problems from that, then give me cancer. I've just about decided this is a candidate for the worst year of my life.

As for telling you to stick deep breaths where the sun don't shine, I got another idea. How about you take those deep breaths for me, since I can't.

Oh, I'm just trying to take it easy and recuperate. I'm not used to doing nothing.

My back is doing fine. I have very little pain there. My bandage fell off today. The incision looks really good. I called the dr office the other day about the leg pain. His nurse said it could be six months to a year before it goes away completely. Yuck. But it seems tone getting better every day. I'm still on painkillers and a muscle relaxer.

Mrs Bob us doing PT for her broken ankle. It's swelling a lot. This will also take a while to go away. The worst part is all this is keeping us from going to a continuing education conference we were going to go to in Hawaii in November. :-(

Gosh, I feel like I fit right in here. Everyone with their physical problems. I won't go into all that is wrong with me here, but please know that I am praying for you all. Pain totally sucks and having to depend on DH to help me with so many things is messing with my self esteem. Wolfe, SR, Bob, Lady Glock, Magnus and Dango (please forgive me if I left anyone out). I am still praying for each of you.

Wolfe I can tell you were fairly well sedated when you posted this. I know you can spell better. How are you feeling now?

If we could take the deep breaths for you and give you the benefit of them we would.

BobInTX you have been quiet here. Is your back and your wife still healing well? I pray they are.

You do fit in here it seems. I believe it was Magnus2131 who called us the Gimp Squad. He has it right. I pray that you will feel better soon along with Wolfe and others in here.

Damn, just damn. 15 years old. I'm so sorry. Prayers and good juju going out to all of you right now.

I'll update on myself later, mainly the URI is pretty much gone, the nasty reactions from chemo aren't.

That's awful, sawgrass. Saying prayers for his family.

I'm glad your URI is gone, Wolfe. Must have hit you hard.

When will your chemo be finished?

I'm heading to the dr for my followup this afternoon.

Sawgrass, I am so sorry to hear that sad news. I will keep your family and the friends of the young man in my prayers. Suicide is such an awful thing...it's hardest on those left behind.

Bob...glad all is progressing well for you, and pray it continues to do so.

LW...Glad the UTI is gone, sorry the reactions to the chemo aren't...more prayers headed your way.

All others who are in need of God's intervention, I'm still praying for all of you.

Hugs all around
