Well, I haven't been gone for that long, and most of you probably haven't missed me yet, but to me it feels like forever. Let me tell you what happened. I had been feeling pretty bad the last few weeks, thinking I was battling a cold that didn't want to break out in full. On Thursday evening, I started feeling crappy again, and in ten minutes time, my belly was hurting so bad tears were running down my face, I just couldn't help it. I told hubby I wanted to lay down a bit, but before making it to the couch, I collapsed! I started rolling over the ground, crawling on the couch, rolling over again, trying to find a position that wouldn't hurt so much, any position I could find ... but there wasn't any to give me some relieve! I moaned, I cried, I screamed, I scared the crap out of my husband and kids. To tell you the truth, I was pretty scared myself. My belly, my stomach, my back, my throat, everything hurt, but the scariest part was that I could hardly breathe. By that time, my hubby had already called the doctor and asked him to come over, but it soon became obvious I wouldn't be able to wait that long. So he tried to get me to move to get me to the emergency, but he couldn't persuade me to move ... at all! He told the kids to go and get my best friend/neighbour, and both of them tried to get me to stand up, but I just kept rolling over the ground, not responding when talked to. I guess by that time hubby was getting quite desperate, because he called 911. The ambulance came quite quickly, I think they were at our place in a matter of minutes, but they weren't allowed to give me anything for the pain, what's that about!!!!???!!! They had to call for back-up, and it took them about 15 minutes to get to me I suppose, all this time leaving me crawling, rolling, gasping for air! But when they finally arrived ... aah, heaven!!! Thank goodness for drugs LOL. The pain stopped immediately, I tell you, they gave me one hell of a wonderdrug! Anyway, to cut a very long story short, I was diagnosed with gallbladder stones. These stones cause paines I wouldn't wish on anyone, not even my worst enemy ... well, maybe ... no, really, not anyone LOL. I gave birth to three kids, without the help of any drugs, and that felt like a breeze compared to this pain! Anyway, they were removed the very next day, and I was able to come home from hospital as early as yesterday! Amazing really when you think of it, isn't it?
I still tire easily, and I have trouble sitting up, that's still pretty painful, but Kurt, my husband, is being a real sweetie and he's doing absolutely everything around the house. He's doing the dishes as we speak. This event has really shown me what wonderful friends and family and what an awesome husband I have, I feel so blessed right now, I can't even put it into words. I've received help from everyone, everyone went out of their way to make it easy for me, my hubby and my kids, and I'm feeling beyond grateful. And I have to say this: Kean, Jenneke, thank you so much for inquiring after me and for worrying about me, you touched my heart (again) and I love you both!
Well, that's all for today, I'm feeling tired again from sitting in the same position, but I'll try and visit some of your blogs later tonight. Glenda, I did receive your comments, I just didn't see them before today) I'll be back tomorrow (or the day after, depends on how I feel ...) to show you some LO's I made with the fabulous Kreatorville Krafts November Kit. If you haven't seen the kit yet, click here. You'll want to have this kit, I promise!
Talk to you later ladies,
Love xxx Peggy
