Just to let you know ---

I've honestly not forgotten the promise I made to keep blogging, I've just hit a bit of a rough spot and I am trying to keep on but I'm really struggling. My pain is off the charts, I am blue because of my Kittygirl and many other reasons and I just can't pull it together the way I would like.

But I will be back here, in just a few days. Also, my oldest son has moved back home temporarily while he moves from one part of the country to another, and his room is the room my desktop computer is in. I could write on my gazillion other devices but oh-how-I-hate to try and use them.I am old and old fashioned and set in my ways, I guess --- I like my keyboard!

And one more thing --- my surgery date is March 6. I was hoping it would be a quick in and out like the majority of them have been but because he plans on taking out as much instrumentation as possible, it will be a top to bottom bru-ha-ha once again. Oh Joy! ugh...

Also --- (see how quickly my short little posts turn into long affairs?), but also --- please forgive my lack of presence on your pages, I am just not keeping up with anything, other than the medications every few hours --- that is one thing I never forget. I long for the times in my life when I was not ruled by the drugs. This way of life is hell.

I'll be back, and soon. I swear.

I'm out.

Ugh! I see I posted this to my reader rather than right here, so you probably didn't see it...

"Please know how grateful I am for these updates when you can do them. I completely understand that you are doing the very best you can, and an amazing job in my estimation considering all you have going on, none of which is fun. I never care if you make the rounds or not, I just want to stay in touch and know how things are going for you. I am so glad it will soon be time for your surgery, and a major one at that. I wish it could be sooner, like tomorrow, so you wouldn't have to think about it, but I am praying mightily that it will be life-changing! It takes a long time to get used to that missing furkid in the house. I still want Stormy to magically appear at supper call. He and I had a noisy little supper routine that was so much fun! Like you, I have to have a real keyboard (my awesome Surface tablet has a detachable one), and a hand-held mouse... too old to enjoy the new-fangled variations! I can read posts on my phone and use voice text for a very short response, but I'm not about to type out my usual paragraph of babble without a keyboard and letters big enough that I don't have to squint, even with trifocals! Please just take care of yourself, never give up faith, and know that I am wrapping you up in prayers for surgery! XOXO, Jos"

Hello Jamie! I'm dropping by to let you know that I'm thinking about you right at this moment, and offering up prayers for you and your coming surgery as I do every day. I hope you've been able to share in a bit of that beautiful warm weather the Midwest was experiencing, in February no less! Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes new hope, new life, and brighter days ahead. Stand strong on faith, God isn't finished with you yet! XOXOXO, Jos
