You have my prayers absolutely in this situation and many others you have brought to mind.
Blessings upon you and family,
Merry Christmas,

Did not abandon you; especially hearing of your upcoming colonoscopy. You know how important you are to me and at my urging you heard what I was saying to you.

My issues; had I done what doctors suggest (get colonoscopy starting at age 50) would most likely have only been a polop which could have been removed during procedure. The procedure itself is not in the least painful; it's the preparation beginning the evening before that takes determnation. With all you have been through this is "a walk in the park".

Since time for Christmas shopping, and not able to get out much, do all my shopping on the internet. So between the usual everyday odds and ends (can't leave out spending much "potty time as well), and internet shopping, has not left too much time for NT; but abandon anyone.....NO WAY !!!!!

Eva, you keep on trusting in God. One day all will be shown to you.

As always...Love & Prayers,

Gerry

Eva and I are phone buddies. I urged her to have this procedure, as well as others over the age of 50. She is aware how important her having this done is to me as well.

Also had a couple of feet of colon removed, as well as rectum. At the urging of Surgeon went to see Oncologist about Chemo and another doctor regarding Radiation. The surgeon wanted me to make an informed decision. After doing as he requested; I have decided not to proceed with treatments.

How nice it is to have a place to share openly with others.

Thanks for all the "hugs and Prayers",

Gerry

aah my loving friend
i certainly do need you
as i too am here for all
you captured my heart
by your honest persona
a beautiful voice
i too have become a shopper via computer
i was just telling Corissa
we were always at the mall
just to be out in the world
the decorations and the music
she remembers
i look forward to spring and the pool
my only way of being social and help my body
the aches and pains i can forget when among friends
you are my friend
thank you
the winter brings me down
as for many others
blessed however much i complain
blessed like only God knows what
makes me happy
i'll give all to him
as no matter how well
only i could do
now there is a good laugh
me trying to supersede
the Almighty God
when all is perfect
just the way it needs
to be
so l too will sit back and watch
for the next merriment or sadness
acceptance a good thing especially
for this type "A" personality
thank you for keeping me
grounded
much love
hope your loved ones
are all doing great
please PM your number
as i learn more about technology
a number is stored after a certain
time or amount i don't know
would love to give you a ring
before Christmas
talk to you soon
much love

Dear ones

Hope faileth not
infectious in its reach
it is the personal touch
of the Lord in our pain ridden lives
drawing us ever forward
as we are asked by the Lord
to trust
the love
with hope
for this propels us
onward
ever able thus
to reach out in genuine care
for those round about
whose needs are so great.

How Blessed am I,

May each of you feel the loving embrace of our wonderful Lord and Saviour during this holiday season. I am utterly touched at the outpour of love and care that is shared here.

......and dear Karen, please know that my heart aches with you. You've been through more than anyone I know and you've got a special place here at our little forum. Take the time you need for yourself. Cherish the support of your family. May you have a merry Christmas and as the new year comes upon us, please know that we're all in this together. No matter what the near future may bring, you will always be a part of this place.
God Bless....

I'm not that good at rhyming stuff
But here I'll have a go
Cos there's no other forum
That wouldn't laugh their socks off

See what I mean!?

It's Christmas Eve in the Saffy House
And yesterday we had a bit of a crisis
A huge bang in the kitchen and no electricity anywhere

The electricity board turned up last night
And I bet we were cursed by all
The dug up all the pavement
And part of our front lawn
We're hijacking someone else's electric for now
Don't ask me how they do that
But a least we no longer need candles
And I can get to meet my daughter's boyfriend properly today
We collected a cheap cooker from IKEA
Thankfully it's not flat pack
But we need someone to fit it
And I hope the guy who came out and told us we have no electric going into the house
Will pop out later and connect it

That's the trouble with Christmas
SOME thing shut right down
But he's a nice man
And if sound all pitiful
He might just come and do it
Fingers crossed


Get my stitches out today .. Though I've been naughty and picked... How can anyone NOT want to pick at those sticky out threads?

Dont think she'll have much picking to do today and if its dry outside I'm off out for a Toot on TOOTLE. Not been on him yet .. Trying to decrease the amount of drugs I came back from hospital with. Not really possible, but at least I gave it a go.

HAVE A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS

I washed myself as much as I could, but what a mess. And that pain, it was hellish ..I grabbed some diazepam for spasms and that helped thank god.

Not eating today so nothing to come out. Lol

Dearest Saffy,
my heart is so with you as you endure the pain...I too at times lose control of my bowels...it is another muscle prone to injury like any other.
I am very bothered by your comment that you do not eat so nothing comes out....you need nutrition. Can you get some protection for night times?

I am also going to be bold and ask if you have available to you any counseling..your husband is being abusive and you have made a joke of it and your recourse is to not eat. I recognize this abuse because I have been there.

That man need to go sleep somewhere else.

with much concern and love
