still not dead – still in lockdown but lost count

I think I might be sending out change of address cards next week the way this is going. Tomorrow marks three weeks in one hospital or another. I’m so over it.

One thing I can say with 100% certainty is that I am eternally grateful for smart phones. I don’t think I could have made it this long without mine.

I can stay in touch with people on the phone and through the various messaging apps. I have Facebook to while away a few minutes a day. I can, and do, watch Netflix, a lot! I have a few games when I can bare to play them. I have Youtube. I have the Kindle app to read books.

I mean, other than getting out of here, what more could I want?

As for how things are going…. the bile stopped leaking for 2 whole days. I had a special MRI to see what was going on. They believe the loose stone has lodged somewhere and blocked something, causing bile to gather and back up, putting pressure on weak any spots not allowing them to heal.

All I know is that I’m now waiting for a gastroscopic procedure to remove the stone on Monday. I hope that fixes it cause while I’m leaking bile I can’t leave.

There sure doesn’t seem to be any sense of urgency here…

I just want to be better and out of here.

  1. I am so sorry you are still in the hospital – as someone who has spent a lot of time in hospitals this year I feel for you so much. I hope things get worked out this week and you can get back to your beautiful Island and dog and cat


    • Thank you. I do too!!!
      I am so sorry to hear about your health issues. My thoughts go out to you, wishing you a complete recovery.
      I adore Buddy. I couldnt face life without a poodle by my side. I am glad you have him.


  2. I’m so sorry you are still in hospital! Hopefully the Monday action will provide results and you will be out soon!

    I’ve been offline for about a week due to bad winter storms in Texas. We had to leave home because of no power and then no water. Luckily for us, granddaughter’s house is near and they were kind enough to shelter us and our five dogs! Lol. Except for having to boil water to drink and cook all is ok at home now!
