Yesterday I posted about my adventures in breaking my leg and how my test results were preventing me from getting the necessary surgery to fix it. Well, the good news is, my white blood cell count and liver enzyme counts are down so I will be getting the surgery tomorrow as scheduled! And then I should (hopefully) be on the mend and on my way to walking again. Of course, the bad news is that I have to get the surgery in the first place, which I'm very nervous about! But I will be very relieved when it's over with tomorrow and I can start thinking about the many months of healing I have ahead of me. My surgery is 24 hours from now ... gulp.
Thanks again for all of your well wishes, advices, etc. It made me feel a lot better during a difficult time.
Thanks for the update, Naomi. Hope tomorrow is smooth and as uneventful as a surgery day can be. I will be thinking about you, let us know how you are. Best wishes.
Good luck with the surgery.
Remember ice is a good pain reliever and is not really restricted to a few days. Rule of thumb, as long as you have swelling or pain, use ice. You can ice on top of a cast too...
Thanks. Right now I'm trying to relax by watching reruns of old sitcoms.
Actually, dancers always say "break a leg" when they wish good luck to someone - somewhat inappropriate in the circumstances though...
Seriously, I hope all goes well.
Good news to hear Naomi, best wishes to you! Check back in and let us know you are o.k. whenever you can.

Johnny has early ileum. Apparently, because of his bronchitis and COPD, his intestines did not get enough oxygen and they partially shut down. The bronchitis also triggered the atrial flutter. He's doing better and is now on a liquid diet, so at least he won't starve. He's not in as much pain,...

I just read his blog post and I should have titled it Friday 2/18 to be clear. So go on over there and wish him well, if you'd like. Just thought I'd mention it. He's done lots of great stuff here and I'll miss his talent and helpfulness.But of course I wish him well on this new gig.

Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for most of them, on average. I know it takes time to build up traffic and I am...
