Dec. 9, 2015 Hi, to All of My Wonderful Followers, First of all, I offer ALL of you a heart-felt apology for not being able to get around to read everything that you all have written. For this, I am truly sorry. Not only do I have to endure the chronic pain 24/7 from Fibromyalgia, but Neurothopy and all I can do is treat the symptoms due to both being incurable. But since fall is turning to winter, these diseases only grow worse. But in mid-October, I had to be admitted to a hospital in Tupelo, Miss., for congestive heart failure and within an hour, I would have died, but I am not writing this to get your pity. I just want to take this moment to tell ALL of You Wonderful Followers, from the newest to the first, just how much I cherish you and your friendship and talents. I also want to take this moment to wish ALL of You and Your Families A Very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous, Happy 2016. Thanks to ALL of you once again for not leaving my hub action. I promise that when I get on my feet again, I will produce more hubs for your entertainment and drama. Love, Kenneth Avery
Best wishes to you, Kenneth. I am among the many who have often enjoyed your good humor (not the ice cream bar) and are thinking good thoughts. Hope you can maintain the laughter despite your pain and use it as a therapy to carry you through the tough times. You have a lot of people pulling for you.
Dear Kenneth, Just take care of yourself my dear friend. Thank you for all the smiles and laughs you have given me and all of us at HP. I hope you are up and about in the New Year. I will never, ever forget you. Jean
Dearest Jean, Sweetie, I am not dead. LOL. I have to just recover from a heart cath, what they called it, to survey my heart for blockages and thank God, there were none. Just 57 pounds, that's right, pounds of fluid. I weighed 345 when I went to the hospital and now I weigh 260 and am going for 180. Pray for me and I will be thinking of you and I do wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas! Love you.
Hi Kenneth, I didn't think you were saying goodbye for good! I do think of you though, and am glad to hear you are getting good care, and have no blockages. Feel well fast, and I wish you and your family all the best for the holidays. Hugs.
I'm so very sorry to hear about your recent hospitalization for congestive heart failure and your serious chronic health challenges. You have always impressed me as a wonderful, kind, funny and authentic person, and my appreciation of and admiration for you has only increased on learning that your upbeat attitude co-exists with, and triumphs over, severe chronic pain.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, my friend. Sending love, light, and loads of positive and healing energy your way, along with my warmest wishes to you and your loved ones for a very merry Christmas and a joyous, productive and prosperous 2016.
Dear Joanie, I will do my best and when I set my mind to it, normally, things work out. Just say a prayer for me for I am in uncharted territory. Thanks for the sweet note and you and yours have a Very Merry Christmas. Love, Kenneth
ChitrangadaSharan, My sincere thanks to you for your heart felt note. May God bless you richly today and every day forward. I am doing my best to get well, but it is a slow process, but I also know that there are numerous people with worse cases and I need to be mindful of those too. Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to You too!
Hello Kenneth how are you comming along ? I am happy to see you write here again. I pray your recovery is doing good and that your family hold up under the pain of your pain. I just about can visually see your position and adjusting again is not easy. I hope your family knows how valuble you are to many as me number one. I send my prayers and love to your family. May Jehovah keep you close.
Dear KissandTales, I am slowly recovering, eating only what the doctors tell me to eat, not getting excited (to overwork my heart) and doing what I can to get back to living again. The week I spent in (a) hospital was enough terror for me. I won't elaborate due to it all being dark and negative, but thank God, I am living. I appreciate so much, our friendship and the comments you have left on my hubs and now this one really makes my day. God bless you. Merry Christmas and please keep in touch. Love you.
Thank you Kenneth , some times people are blessings and gifts from our Heavenly Father I appreciate your kindness and sense of humor. I know you have been through a lot but Jehovah is faithful and good to us all. May we always keep in touch .
Dearest KissandTales, Thank you so very much for your loving words. They penetrate the pain that these two diseases bring. Did you know that? And it is so easy to be kind to someone like you. And yes, God Jehovah is faithful to His word and promises. I would love that. Us always keeping in touch. Thanks for that blessing and may God continue to bless you, my Dear Friend.
peachpurple . . ."THANK YOU!" This is meant for being emphatic, not shouting. I am always thinking about you and all of my great followers who now I call Great Friends. Thanks also for your prayers. You are appreciated. Love you and Merry Christmas.
I have missed your hubs in my feed, Kenneth. I am sorry for all the health problems you have been experiencing. I know what hell it is to live with chronic pain. I hope you are on the mend and will be back to writing soon.
MelRootsNWrites, May God bless you richly for your sweet words that cheered me up. I have said it on my comments and hubs more than once, "I have THE BEST followers on HubPages." "I will follow my doctors' plans and hopefully be back soon. Merry Christmas. Love you.
Thank you Kenneth for taking the time to post this message. I wish you a very Merry Christmas as well and hope you are feeling much better in the new year. If you are feeling well enough to read just one of my hubs you may like the one I just wrote for this Christmas period "Have a Very Merry Giftmas". My wife suffers from fibromyalgia so I am well aware of how debilitating that can be on its own without other health problems to worry about. Take care my friend.
Hey, Jodah, Thank YOU for taking time to send me this nice wish. I love it. You and your wife have a blessed, peaceful, and Merry Christmas. You and All of my Sweet Followers are All God sends. Kenneth
"Produce more hubs for entertainment and drama" LOL, What a combo Ken... Had no idea you were going through that. You seem to float through life with a good sense of humor. I look forward to more of that from you. I'm trying to get out of the woods myself. Of course, I'm a praying man and I'll keep you in my prayers as well. We'll both be alright.
Bro. Word55, Oh, how good it would feel to just float through the air. One day soon, I, along with other believers will fly through the air. I only wanted to tell ALL of my Great Followers how great I think they are and that I may be a bit scarce for a few weeks. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
My dearest Kenneth, I've been thinking about you, wondered what happened. So glad you're back. Please take care, I'm truly sorry you're in so much pain. I will pray for a miracle for your best of health. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use only the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place. Thanks for thinking about me and all your friends I know what you are going through I am also handicapped.
moonlake, Thank you for your care and concern. I am feeling better mentally than I was two months ago, but my strength is not 100%. I just have to lean on God and take it a step at the time. Have a Merry Christmas. Love you. P.S. as for your question about why awful things happen at Christmas, well, read the first few chapters of Job in the Bible. I had to do that and it opened my eyes.
MsDora, Thank you and all of my sweet followers for the prayers, thoughts, and notes on this post. I am doing what the doctors say and keeping on the strict diet they gave me. Thanks again. And do have a Very Merry Christmas. Love you.
Oh Goodness, Kenneth! You shouldn't worry yourself about reading and commenting here, you should focus on your health most definitely. I'm still pretty new here, but already see how loyal you are to hubpages and the writers here. I know each and every one here understands. I wish you a very Merry Christmas! And I hope the New Year will bring you many blessings where your health is concerned. Much happiness and peace to you!
Dear Missy, My Sincere Thanks to you for your warm comments. That goes a very long way with me. I have never been a part of something so special as HubPages. That is why I want to do my part in keeping my followers happy and interested so they will not leave me. And a follower is like a new friend being sent into my life and that is a grand blessing. Yes, you are included in this analogy. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you also. May your life run over with peace, love, happiness, and laughter. Please keep in touch. Love, Kenneth
December 7, 2011Hello to ALL on My Followers List!Yesterday and today, I have spent some time trying to read and offer my sincere comments on what followers' hubs that I could. I am leaving you this in case I cannot...
We are having Christmas at my daughters home this year so I'm all packed up and won't be back for a few days. (Chances are slim that I even get the laptop hooked-up... there are just going to be too many games that I...
Just curious why you can't say Merry Christmas anymore? I have never got upset when someone said Happy Hanukkah. The way I see it, someone is just wishing good times based on whatever their background is. I think it's...
