Wish to hell I could, either in real life or in my dreams. Or both.

That sounds like a nasty one. I hate that you have to relieve the experience all of the time.

It was. Very nasty. Most of the time I relive if I at least have the relief of not laying there completely conscious watching the medic trying to save me. Last night's variant was bad.

So, what was the medic saying?

You REALLLLLY want this thread to get locked, don't you?

Was it a different cocktail last night?
It was, except for the sleep pill. He said it was "almost the same", except that it was less prone to side effects. Well one of the side effects that I really want to have is to be made to sleep! He felt really bad about when I descrbed what last night was like, and agreed that he wouldn't try that particular one again.

Thank you for that. I hope your rehab is going well for you. I have to say you're lucky though. If you have to get your sternum split it's better to cet a controlled cut than to have it smashed into pieces.

No worries about missing my location, I was chuckling when I posted that about forgetting my time zone.

I just don't know if it was the physicians assistant who made the accusation to my face and was put in her place by the surgeon, or the school who has been in my face and on my case for daring to allow my daughter to take such HORRIFIC pain meds!

BTW Wolfe...you are and always will be in my prayers.
Wow, what a damn mess! I guess the opinion of the person (surgeon) who would know best didn't mean anything.

I hear you about getting flack about her taking pain meds, but just think of what they'd say if you let her suffer when she needs them... You can't win with people like that. I get my share of that crap over here myself. "You shouldn't get meds like that over here!" OK, so I'm supposed to hurt so bad I can't even get up?... And your daughter is supposed to be the same way?

I thank you for the prayers and you and your daughter will stay in mine.

I'm glad I could inspire you somehow. I know you've been through a lot, and I think of you a lot. I'm always happy to see you come around, not just for the way you inspire me with what you say, but I just like seeing you. I hope things are going better for you now.

Lone Wolfe,

Don't know if you remember me or not. We exchanged a post here and there a few years back, and at the time we lived in the same town in SE Arizona if I remember right.

I haven't seen reference to exactly what happened to you, and I'm not going to pry into what's not my business, but want you to know that you'll be in my thoughts and prayers. From the length of this thread, it looks like you've been down and out for a while.

Wishin' all the best for you, gal, with a full and speedy recovery.

Daryl

This comes from all of us and goes out to all veterans including you Wolfe. We are grateful for what you have done and continue to do for our country.

As for me, I'm doing about the same today. Chest is making the usual complaints, plus a little extra because of the cold and other stuff. The meds I'm on at night seem to be working well at making me sleep, but aren't without side effects. If I can't adjust to them I may not be able to take this cocktail for long. Doc said he normally couldn't even consider it for a person twice my size and half my age, but he's getting desparate to find me an answer. Hiw and my physical terrorist are still fretting about why I stopped breathing the other night. That has them real concerned that it might happen again.
Thank you everyone for the prayers for me. They are much appreciated and helpful. May I ask that they continue?

Wolfe I tried to get back in time to get online while you were still on but I missed badly. I hope by now you are soundly sleeping the sleep of the just with apologies to 23skidoo for stealing his line. This respiratory stoppage has me very concerned that it may happen again with you alone somewhere. Please go to the hospital any time you have distress. We would hate to lose you after all this time.

Heavenly Father, we come before you to pray for our friend, Lone_Wolfe.

Your child has been badly wounded and been through hell on Earth. Lord, her body has suffered greatly. She has days when she can hardly breathe and nights she can hardly sleep. Her physical therapy is tortuous without any noticeable progress. Her work ability is limited because her body is in so much pain. She is on a multitude of medications just to be able to make her pain bearable and to be able to sleep. Lord, we ask that You would heal her chest. Place Your healing hands on her rib cage and heal the cartilage and underlying tissue. Make it flexible and make the scar tissue disappear. Give her just the right physical therapy needed to make a breakthrough in her recovery. Lord, we ask you to remove her pain.

Lord, even more devastating to Lone_Wolfe has been the damage done to her mind. She has experienced the ravages of war. She was wounded within an inch of her life while trying to fulfill her mission in the war effort to rid a people of tyranny. She has had to live with guilt knowing that a friend died trying to save her life. Then she experienced an uncaring, unfeeling medic that saved her life tell her that he didn't care if she lived, or died. She has had reactions to medications that have left her mind incapable of sleep without nightmares, and incapable of concentration. Her intense pain, survivor's guilt and nightmares have left her with demons of depression, PTSD, anger, sadness, the realization that she almost died, and yes, even thoughts of suicide. She is afraid that if she starts to cry she will never stop. Lord, we've heard her question why You have kept her here, but have not heard her curse You for it. Her faith in You remains strong.

Lord, we ask with boldness that you will cure her of her mental illnesses. She has made so much progress, but she is still battling her "demons". We ask with the same faith Elijah had when he call down Your fire that you will cause her nightmares to cease. Lord, instead of depression and sadness give her joy. Instead of nightmares, give her peace. Instead of anger, let her feel Your Love. Instead of her fear of crying, send her the comfort of Your angels to let it out once and for all and to start drawing on Your strength. Let her know that even though she almost experienced death, she is alive and her life has purpose and meaning, and the future is what she makes of it. Let her continue to feel and enjoy the goodness and gentleness of the people she has touched here, and grant her patience, self-control, and faithfulness for the long road ahead. Be with her doctor and therapists, and give them the exactly the wisdom and knowledge necessary to be your instruments in this process.

Father, we know that you can make these things happen. We thank you for our friend, Lone_Wolfe. She has been an inspiration to all of us here in ways that we can't even describe. But we would give all of this up just to know that she was pain-free and mentally well. Lord, we ask all of these things in the name of Your Son, Jesus, who died for our sins so that we might live in eternity with You. Amen.

God Bless You, xxxxxxx
I just wanted to bring this to the current page so Wolfe would be sure to see it although I know God already has.

My daughter wound up walking about 35 miles. She got dehydrated Friday night, after walking 19 miles, and could not get warm, and we had to go get her (11 pm) and take her to her in-law's house (we were closest to camp). The medical staff made her lay out Saturday and drink a lot of fluids, and then she went back to camp Sat. night and walked the whole way on Sunday. I'm really proud of her.

There were a lot of breast cancer survivors on the walk. I thought about you a lot and what you were having to go through in your own struggles to survive, and of course, my mother.
Love stories like that. People that actually get out and raise money for the cause. You should be proud.

Lone_Wolfe just because I've not been around much does not mean I'm not thinking of you and others here. There are just times that I think I'm better off not posting. That said if there is anything and I mean anything that could help you in any way, please feel free to PM me anytime. Love ya!

Heck yes, I remember you! I see you still have the same cool avatar, too. Doesn't RussP do a great job? I remember SV well, and miss being there. How are things with you and yours?

Acttually you're not prying into my business at all, it's all posted in this thread, but the nutshell version is that I used my chest to stop a round from an AK-47 in Afghanistan. The very slow (and painful) healing from that was hampered all the more by my spending 4 months taking prescription anti-depressants that I turned out to be highly allergic to, so now I'm dealing with constant nightmares, psychosis and other crap. OK, that's the real short version for you, the long version is in the previous 5000+ posts. You're right it's been going on a while, almost 2 years now.

I'm glad you stopped by to say hello. I always enjoyed your posts and would have loved to run into you around town. I'm actually a little surprised I didn't, since we went so many of the same places. Thanks very much for the well-wishes.

I was wondering this myself. Did your doctor put you back on the combo that had been working? I sure hope you did not hae those nightmares again for another entire night.

I would like to wish Wolfe and all the other veterans and current service members here a happy Veteran's Day. Thank you for all you do for our country.

Last night was much better than the night before. Doc went back to the too-strong cocktail to be sure I slept after that terrible night I had. I can tell how bad I felt but some of what I posted and something I wrote, but decided not to post.

Hope Doc has something good planned for tonight... good meds, that is!

Yea! I hope he gets it all tweaked just right and you can get a good 7-8 hours every night. Then I think the real healing can start.

Then before you know it you'll be chasing all those young soldiers around there. back!

Wolfe, it's still Veterans Day here. Thank you for your service.

Also thank you for the prayers over the last week. I didn't have any
internet down there. I texted X1 to update you, so you may know how
things went. I made the trip in just over 17 hrs. My Granny passed
with me holding her hand and talking gently to her. She died 3hrs and
20 minutes after I arrived. It was very peaceful. She wasn't on anything
except oxygen. I'll get back to the thread and pm's after I get caught up
around here a little bit.

I've missed you.

Youíre welcome for my service. As is everyone.

I didnít get any updates, so Iím glad to see you back here. Iím so sorry about Granny, but also glad you were able to get there. It really sounds like you were right and she was waiting for you. She knew you loved her and had come to be with her. I canít think of a better way to go. I know you miss her, and all I can offer you is a virtual , wish I could do more.

I've missed you too, my friend.
