Topic: Did I get hit by a Mack truck?

Sure feels that way.  My docs (three of them in three separate visits) called me one tough cookie.  I don't feel so tough right now.  Trying to recuperate from blood poisoning, pneumonia, internal bleeding, appendectomy, and additional surgery to control internal bleeding. 

Trying to take it slow and easy.

Yayyy, you're back!! I think it's time for you to take a break from being tough, and just rest in the care of everyone who loves you.

Hope you're feeling better every single day!

Peace, hope, and healing to all!

Lisa,
Do you have to make all of us look bad by being such a TOUGH woman. I bet everyone is now scared of you because you are so strong and invincible. I am glad to see you back on the board and hope you feel better soon.

Lisa,
You have been through the ringer, and you are a tough cookie.  Is your Mom still with you?  Kids able to make it home from school to help you recover?  I sure hope so.    Thinking of you and praying for your quick recovery.   What you have been through would make anyone feel like a truck hit them.  Wishing you all the best Lisa.     Hollie

My mom has been with me every day since I got sick.  That has been really helping my recovery.  I'm feeling a little better every day and looking forward to getting the JP drain out of my abdomen.  I lost 20 lbs the past few days just from getting rid of the water weight and swelling.

Don't worry, I still have a few extra pounds to see me through smile
