BobK?

Even after all that bees wax, I still like you.

YOU read nothing I said, obviously. but you give generally good advice, if you were talking to a woman who didn't have to go through two failed insurance companies, Katrina, medicaid, and a helluva lotta pain, as well as three years of insults from doctors whose speciality was in one end, as they told me my problem was in the other.

I'd tell you to save your advice for the virgins, but ...y'don't think I'd trust a virgin with you, do you?



Not even UNbloody-likely.  

go to bed 'fore I spank ye, dammit. *glare*

     Must be on other threads, Darlin'.  I knew you had troubles, but not the details; and from your writing I knew you had a pretty solid head on your shoulders.  It's easy to get labled as having psycho-physiological issues issues if you don't sign on to the standard way of looking at things.  And doctors are right there at the center of the most standard of the standard for the most part.  It's a pity.

     I don't know if your general comments also included my suggestions about Ericksonian hypnosis, but it's worth following up in terms of lower pain levels (who's the fool who decided to call pain "discomfort," anyway) and significantly faster healing time.  Just a thought.

     I'm no fool, by the way.  Do you think I'd make suggestions if I were within spanking range?  I don't think so.

Best from LA, BobK.

Of course I have troubles.

Apparently? So do you.

So let's not pull that loose thread on the sweater of each other's minds, k?

<--I really need a sarcastic Doris Day smile.

(I don't really mind doing that, but um...tch...let's go some place more private>)

Oh c'mon...

let's "play".

If I have silenced you BobK?

I'd really like to get back to my prayers.

Or meditations, as you say...

I have services to tend to, and my mother, so I should sleep, y'think?

I'm sorry though, or maybe not.

I genuinely love ye all...and sometimes that is challenging.

sleep well, Bob.

Karen...Will you be going to the old Meadowcrest for the additude adjustment or some other hospital? I could drop by and see you as long as they have you in restraints. Aug. 15 you will be in my prayers everyday till then. Maybe I could send you some red hot candy or plastic flowers...LOL. Don't worry my dear everything will come out fine. The Dr.really doesn't want to screw up this
time cause I will find him and see how he feels with out his family jewels...Paul

Dearest Karen

You have the full might of my constant prayers for as long as you need them.  

After all, I don't usually come into Discussions and something drew me in, and there was your prayer request, right at the top.  Now, if that isn't powerful, then I don't know what is!  And, an owl has very powerful wings and can carry lots and lots and lots of prayers.

And no matter who or what you may change into (or not), we will still all love you as much as ever, because nothing can change what is intrinsically our Karen.

I know I speak for everybody when I say that I am so relieved and grateful to you that you have told us what is happening, and also that you have admitted to yourself (mostly, but to us too) that you are scared.  Paradoxically, it takes great courage for such a courageous person as you are, to recognise, acknowledge and then to admit to others, one's own fear.  

You are an extremely wise person to realise that you can't do this alone and that you need our prayers.  We are all part of humanity and humanity is all part of us.  We would have felt very hurt if you had not asked for our prayers.  

Now, you just try to relax.  Smile at all this abundant expression of love for you from so many Pipsters - and while you are doing so, notice that it relaxes your shoulders - and if you let that smile sink deep into your heart, you will find that the relaxation will spread throughout your body all the way down to your toes - and leave the rest up to your current doctors, our love and prayers, and God's love for our wonderful Karen.    

It will be hard, but we will all be with you every step of the way and you will recover and be back with us all in good time.  

Once you have passed all the tests and had the op, take all the time you need to recover.  We will be here waiting and lighting candles as you did for Marge.

Smile again - slowly and deeply - see it's relaxing

Prayers aren't really my cup of tea, will hopes and good wishes suffice?

And yep, Paullie, I'll be there. (and yes, I know it's called "Murdercrest")

sheesh

But they are part of Oschner now--so that steadies my nerves a bit. Besides, my last surgery was there and they took very good care of me--and my mom had excellent care there as well. As you know, I have to take what I can get around here anyhow.  

And you are all so kind and loving to me.

I know it sounds corny, but whenever I'm worried, I can feel the love from you all and it's a comfort to me. So thank you all.

And especially you, Ron. It does occur to me that without a Ron Carnell, I would not have met so many wonderful friends.

So? Now I think I'm into the crying portion of my hormonal cycle. Kari? You might remember me mentioning Mr. Gibbs. His wife passed away this morning, so yep, it is a sad day today. *shaking my head* and yes, she was elderly, but I never understood how that made things better...it's not like we'll miss them any less, huh? I know you know, lovie.

I'm gonna go watch some mind numbing tv.

Love to you all!

Don't worry about Armageddon Kiddo; August 15th is a Friday this year and the end of the world is already scheduled for a different year, on a Tuesday at 2:45PM.

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry I missed a couple of days of this thread. So many of us have lost way too many of our loved ones...and it is amazing how this particular family forum of poets continues to increase those we come to know through others' eyes.



I'm with you, honey, heart & soul.

Solemn nods from me to what I consider the end of a personal era...

With the passing of Velma, there is one less "safe" house in the world, and she took to her grave some of the finest recipes for original Cajun cooking on the planet. (Y'could hand that lady some rice, flour, an un-Yun, a few "shrimps", and maybe a couple of "okras" and she could feed a platoon...while babysitting five bad kids, too!)

So thank you Kari, and I'm gonna just give you a hug, because I can't get Hank Williams out of my mind, and I'll cry again in public.

She was "good people", and will be missed.

HeySweets~
The candle flickers in the glow of you~
The vigil is on ... for us both and we both know there is some powerful 'medicine' at work here~

Monday, August 11, is my new 'D' day ... hopefully a DIAGNOSIS as I return to Shands Hospital to see the cast of doctors and find out if all those tests I've submitted my little self to have produced any concrete evidence that will lead them to a conclusion of what IS ... of what to do about it if it IS anything at all~

I step the weary pathway of limbo until they tell me SOMETHING !!!

You stay tough ... and we both know that is what we have to do~
Love you ... and I found a bargain on 100 candles ... so I've got the watch for many days to come~

*HUGLETS*

I had to switch to tealights. (A compromise with the hubby, since I caught the dining room table on fire.)

But I've got bags and bags of 'em. (and a few tapers hidden away in a candlebox for those special occasions)

You're doing great! I just might implode next week--I'm goin' in Friday! It's been pointed out here before that the former Meadowcrest Hospital System has been taken over as Oschner West.

Oschner...West....

O.W.? (Oh the gods love to giggle with me!)

The time is nearing for your surgery that'll hopefull enrich your life.  Every surgery and procedure carries a threat, but I'm sure you'll put all those positive thoughts together, while we pray for God's best for you, and it'll be over in a wink.

Friday morning will begin with prayer for you.

Love,

k~
Oh man have I kept the candles burning~
I even picked up a bag of 150 tealights just yesterday at Big Lots !!
Then I got every fragrance of votive candles they had on the shelves ... now not only am I living my nights by candlelight,
I also have the best smelling apartment in DeLand !!

New pain meds for me as of yesterday ... and thankfully the doctor LISTENED to me when I told him of ONE med I had taken in the past that WORKED on my back pain !!!
We are doing the pain-management program until they zero in on an actual DIAGNOSIS~

I've always been told I'm 'unique' ... but being pegged "The medical community's diagnostic challenged', is stretching it a bit~

Love you gal ... keep the faith that all WILL be okay !!

Reciting the mantra too!!

Laughing!

I got TWO big old bags from yep--Big LOTS!

I'm frowning at my cigs here, and trying to figure out how to get this gold polish offa my toes. (It apparently has metal flakes, and they did not approve of my smilie face pedicure...)

I thought it was gonna look cute in the stirrups too. *grumble*

thank you Marge. It is not easy being a medical mystery, either. I sure wish my doc looked like Hugh Laurie, too.

I'll get better, and yanno? I think I'm gonna have to hit Florida first--there's so many of ya'll there I just can't resist.

Ok, so I've sat over my tea and candles
and wishes...

and the BOTH of you will make Katrina look
like a poor book sale [plug!]



Mind you both, serenity and Marge, you two are going to make medical history - my Gosh, look at the history that the both of you have made HERE....

So take up each other's candle, because you ARE going to be a voice for others...I'm not quite sure how, but I just sense it!...

and lately? I've been pretty much on target!
