I figured as much. Don't think I haven't cried, wish I was on a plane, questioned my own sanity, etc. Then I try to tell myself I'm doing some good here, that I need having a doc in walking distance, etc. I don't always succeed in convincing myself.

Thanks for all your prayers.

I think my sig line is more for me this week than for Lone_Wolfe.
Glad to hear the change in meds helped. I've had that med but it's not meant for long term like I need and other anti-inflammatories work better for me. I'm glad it seems to be the right one for her, though. Prayers continuing.

Wow, damn! I hate to hear this, my friend. I'm really hoping and praying that you're better soon. Please take care of yourself.

I'm OK, no need to worry. Not that telling you to stop will have much effect.
You didn't feel well at all that day but you toughed it out and attended anyway. Thank you Sweeetheart. No need to worry? Sweetheart, you're in Afghanistan, the demons are working overtime to keep you upset and in pain, the hajjis are still attacking your base, although we're happy our guys got a few; we still worry. Take care Sweetheart.

Hi LW,

I am glad that you are OK. However when someone tells me "not to worry"... I panic.

I figured I could either feel like crap at your house by myself, or feel like crap at your picnic, which I'd changed my flight dates to be able to go to. Since I was going to hurt like hell and feel like crap no matter which option I chose it was kind of a no-brainer. Your family, especially your BIL, was especially nice and helpful to me during the worst of it. I felt bad about it all, but he was really understanding. I really appreciated that.

You're right about the demons and Hajjis, although the Hajjis have been quiet since then. Now if only the demons would shut the hell up, too.

Guess I'd better not tell you not to worry again. Would it work better if I tell you not to panic?

And thanks, I'm glad I'm OK too. Well, as glad as I can be, considering.....

In all of that have you considered actually getting on a plane? It would be no shame for you to admit it was a mistake to agree to serve there again.

Wolfe told me that she felt bad about that day and not feeling well with all your family and friends there. I was just glad she was able to go.

I am headed in for surgery soon. They are implanting some umbrella like devices into my veins to catch any clots that form to keep them from causing a heartattack or stroke. They are taking me off bloodthinners due to femanine issues that make those a bad idea...and will be having a complete hystorectomy in a couple months.

Wow, bless your heart. Here's praying for a successful outcome for your blood clot problem and hysterectomy.

BTW, my mother in-law had blood clots in her lungs right before I met my wife. That was 32 years ago, and she's still kicking. All that to say there's light at the end of the tunnel.

Hi LW,
If you tell me not to panic, then I will start to look for a flight to Afghanistan to bring you home to the US.

Thank you. I'm the kind of person who has anxiety over things like this so I'm not in the best frame of mind. I appreciate the comment about your M-I-L...that helps! I just want this taken care of to fix the issues and get me back home with my family. I miss them

Prayers are being sent for everyone!! I haven't checked in for a while due to multiple family health issues, but it seems like many here are having health concerns. Please know that I am agreeing in prayer for all concerned. So glad to hear your daughter is doing well, Bob! Lady Glock, I pray that God will send someone special to help you in your time of need. Precious Wolfe, I love you and admire you more than you can know. You are the bravest woman I have ever known. SR, though I don't know what your prayer concerns are, I have been praying for you. Please pray for my son. The gastro thinks he has Crohn's. He just graduated from Law School and now has a stressful job. It seems he can't catch a break. There are more, but he is my biggest concern here at the moment. Thanks, GT'ers.

Update to my day...

It's been a bad day. Everything went far south of where it has been...and my life is now in question. I am upset this is happening all because a doctor chose to put me on birthcontrol instead of getting me in with someone who could stop the hemoraging the RIGHT way.

Because I can't take birth control anymore, and my cycle started...they had to take me off the blood thinners. They implanted a filter in my vein, through my groin and it now sits behind my belly button. The filter is like a metal umbrella and will protect me from NEW clots from my legs or groin, but does nothing to protect me from the old clots in my lungs. Without the thinners, new blood may bond to the clots and make them grow and if they break free it's lights out.

They are going to check me in a few weeks and see if the clots are going away...I will be having a hysterectomy as soon as possible and then the thinners will be restarted...though it could take up to April for the clots to go away so I can have the surgery. After they are able to start the thinners again, they will keep me on them for at least 6 months.

Prayers are appreciated, and all I can really ask of anyone.

Damn life is hard enough without all these health problems. I need to read up up on Crohn's. All I know is that it is an autoimmune disease like my RA.

J/K, I know some of you worry and I'm not trying to make it any worse than it has to be. I thank you for caring.

Wow, I hate to hear that about your son, prayers going out for him. Maybe he'll be lucky and it'll be something easily treated. Please keep us posted. Skidoo's brother had Chron's for years, he might be able to tell you a bit about it.

As for my, I'm a coward. Thanks for keeping Silent_Runner in your prayers. And as for you....

Prayers, prayers, and more prayers! I hate to hear it's going so badly for you, I'm worried for you and your family. You'll have to check in with us regularly so I don't have to send the people planning to hunt me down after you. I'm worried about you, my friend, and you're in my thoughts.

Tell me about it. I've been lucky not to have a bunch of additional health problems besides the effects of being a bullet-stop. BTW, how are you feeling today?

I promise to check in often. This is the 2nd scariest thing I've gone through, the first being when my kids disappeared for 3 weeks...11 years ago. I'm truly worried about going home like it is now and not being close to doctors if something should go wrong. My legs were cramping like crazy last night, I couldn't get them comfortable so the nurse says I"m going to have to walk today...but 5 steps and I can't breathe. The oxygen helps it correct faster, but if I'm home, I don't know that I will have oxygen.

Anyway, I'll stay in touch...I don't want you putting yourself in extra pain by worrying about me, just say prayers for me please!

By the way...don't "pull your punches" with us. You say you know we worry about you and you don't want to make it worse by saying something...well, don't do that! We want the truth from you, we want to know how you are TRULY feeling...not something WATERED DOWN to protect us from our worry!

Although there is no clear association of trauma with the onset of RA, there are doctors that will tell you they have had many patients whose RA began after trauma, surgery or stressful event. Mine came on after my failed back surgeries and right after my family left me. I still would not trade that for being shot and all the physical and mental stress & pain you have been through.
That said, I'm still having a lot of pain where they stuck that long stemmed replacement. I keep telling myself it's early. On the positive side the bend in my knee and the rest of it is pretty good.

My legs were cramping like crazy last night, I couldn't get them comfortable so the nurse says I"m going to have to walk today...but 5 steps and I can't breathe. The oxygen helps it correct faster, but if I'm home, I don't know that I will have oxygen.

Anyway, I'll stay in touch...I don't want you putting yourself in extra pain by worrying about me, just say prayers for me please!

By the way...don't "pull your punches" with us. You say you know we worry about you and you don't want to make it worse by saying something...well, don't do that! We want the truth from you, we want to know how you are TRULY feeling...not something WATERED DOWN to protect us from our worry!
Hang in there Lady Glock! Praying for you.
