~ Status.... Update ~

Photobucket  Hey folks this will be pretty short.  I just wanted to type a little something so you all knew I was ok.  Well...  ok is probably a bit stronger then I'd like to say but..........

All is going same 'ole same 'ole.  My leg/foot is not any better and besides being frustrating it can be painful at times.   I did see the surgeon the other day and though he wants me to wait as long as possible he is not sure I will be able to last much beyond the end of Feb.  I see the cardiologist on Feb 3 and then some decisions will be made. 

I am working from home and let me tell you it tires me out.  By the time I log off the network at the end of the day I am ready for a pain pill and a nap.  I've done both a couple of times.  I do feel that I am contributing and accomplishing things so I'm happy. 

I've tried to keep up with you all but I miss a day or two and then I have over 250-300 alerts.  That becomes overwhelming to me.  I'm sorry I just can't keep up.  My head is not in the best frame either so it makes it that much harder.  I will try...........

Well..  time to move to a new position and get blood flowing in my leg.  Please know I miss you guys and I do care... just need to take care of my health right now.  I will stop in when I can.

Hugs

We miss you... But, of course, it is more important that you take care of yourself right now than it is you worry about cyberspace. I'm hoping that you continue to improve so that we can have you back here at full strength sooner rather than later!

That you are dealing with your concerns and taking any time out to share, is well enough for me. Be well, and my prayers and wishes will be with you.

Jeannette said...

It's so nice to wake up and find your alert Donna, I was getting so worried ~ hence the email! Sorry to hear you're still in pain with the leg and foot. Don't overdo the working from home, rest when you need to or walk around a bit to get your blood flowing again. This Blogger dashboard overwhelms me too! Does anyone know how to delete the ones we've read?! Sending prayers and hugs to get you through all this and come back healthy again. Jeannette xxxx

Dear Donna,

You are the most important one to take care of now. Your friends here, who read your journal, will hang in there praying and giving you encouragement for your future return to good health. Roll on the beginning of February. You will be in my prayers and thoughts each day.
Meanwhile please don't work too hard at home. Take time out for your own well being.
Here's to happier times.
Hugs
Jeanie xxxxxx

Yasmin said...

Good to hear from you Donna, and sorry to hear your still in quite a bit of pain. Working from home looks like the best option for now at least you don't have to struggle driving in the bad weather, and it keeps you fairly occupied.

Take care

Yasmin

Lovely to here from you have been wondering how you were coping with work etc. Take care Love Joan

Missy said...

Hey Donna. I'm sorry that you aren't feeling well and that work is dragging you down so bad. I can tell a difference in the way that you write that you aren't feeling like yourself. Maybe you went back to work to early? Could you do part time?

I'm sorry you feel so crappy and don't worry about keeping up with all of those alerts. Just stop in when you can and are able. I'm just glad that you are here with us!

Love ya.
*M*

Jmoqueen said...

You just take care of you. No need to worry about us. You're missed by many, but we all understand.

Joyce said...

I'm so glad to hear from you Donna. I don't get alerts but I check you blog often on the Dash and watch for a post. I wish all of this had not happened to you my friend. Prayers going up daily.
Hugs, Joyce

Diama ~*a.k.a*~ Cherry said...

Gerry said...

Now is your time not to worry about anything but getting better, and doing no more than you can do without risking health. I have some discomfort with my legs, from high blood pressure, so I know I can't spend too much time at the computer, and have to get out and walk, and get my legs elevated. But we are all stopping by just to make sure you are okay and I for ne am expecting nothing in return. I have loved your graphics and photos and I sitll do, and they re gift enough for me. Gerry

Nelishia said...

It's really really good to hear from you but you just what you need to do in order to get healthy again. We'll still be here when you are ready. Ihave to tell you that I miss you alot though.

Big hugs,
Nelishia

Kathy said...

I haven't been by in an age and like you I find it overwhelming when there are so many alerts to get through. Today I am spending a little time visiting here and there.

I'll tell you, I'm grateful for Facebook and being able to keep up even if it is just a quick note.

So glad you are thinking of you and doing what you need to do to get healthy.

Gosh, D, so sorry I missed this. Ugh, I haven't been keeping up. I'm so glad you are at least able to do some work from home. You must be feeling productive which is a good thing. Hang in there....take one day at a time. All your health issues will be taken care of. I know it's very hard to be patient but you have really come so far. Love you and say my prayers for you every day.
