~ Peeking In ~

Photobucket
Ok, pick yourself up and brush yourself off, yes an entry from me.  I thought I'd peek in and let you all know I'm doing ok.  I so appreciate the cards, letters, gifts and trinkets.  I love and appreciate them all.  I have made a few entries along the way letting you know I'm alive... but when I'm not in the mood to pick up my camera or make a post you know something is wrong.  Tags?  OMG! I have a few from before but I don't have the desire to offer or tag 'em right now.  I've just been blah.  The pain has been a pain and I really can't sit at the computer for long.  My emotions always get the best of me as well and it is just easier not to.........  I know most of you understand and don't hold it against me...  for those of you that just don't get it and have emailed me, know this.....  I don't care.  I won't ever be back to your blog, your email is now blocked and I will remove comments if you leave any.  I don't have time to play your games and this will be the last on the matter.  You know who you are, you already read the 'f you' mail.  This is not a ploy to leave comments, so don't feel it necessary.  I've already told the guilty parties to take a freakin hike!
I am filled with all kinds of emotions.  I'm nervous, anxious, hopeful, scared, excited, you name it I feel it.  I am trying to stay positive and for the most part am.  I'm nervous about  not waking up and those that have been around for a bit know that is the norm for me.  When I had my dental work years ago I feared the same thing... remember?  I don't believe it is my time, if it was I'd have been taken last time, right?  Needless to say it does weigh on you.  Having time to think about it doesn't help either.  I will be having my surgery on Tuesday morning.  It's a pretty serious surgery and I will be kept in ICU (intensive care) for at least one day.  My recovery in the hospital will most likely be 7 days and then I'm out.  If I feel up to it I will come directly home.  If I need to, I will go to my parents.  Trust me I won't push anything. 
I know many of you read my sister, or stop by and look at times.  I appreciate it and want you to know she will post updates so you are all informed.  Feel free to add her to your list.....   she'd love your visit either way trust me!
Ok, my leg is completely asleep and I need to move and then change position again.  Please send a good vibe that Tuesday is successful and I'm back in no time.  I wanna be me again!
Love you all and hugs

"OK" is good s you say and I am hoping it will be "great" in a short period of time.

I'm so relieved to see a post from you Donna. I'm always thinking of you, wondering how you are but I don't like to email as I know the problems you have sitting here answering emails. I can't believe people have turned nasty on you for not being around as much, for Gods sake ~ they know what you've been through! I'm sending truck loads of prayers and good thoughts for Tuesday. I hope your recovery will be quick and you're soon back on your (painless) feet.
I'm sure we all have enough of your tags to last until you feel up to it again! Just concentrate on you until you feel better. I love the deer photo, seems like as you can't get out the wildlife are coming to visity you ~ they must miss being photographed! Lol! Jeannette xxxx

nancy said...

I will do my best to give the infos on you Donna. Anything can do. You hang in there and man I missed your tags and photos. GReat pic of the deer. When I read peeking, I thought maybe some flowers in the garden were blooming. Have a good night and I'll be talking to you soon. Love ya, Nancy

Chris/cacklinrosie101 said...

Gosh, D, my jaw is dropping, and I should say I'm flabbergasted at how awful some people are but unfortunately I know all too well how true it is. You just take care of yourself right now and get better. One day you'll feel better than ever. Maybe you'll tag, maybe you won't. I've sort of been hiding out in Facebook lately just playing the applications. I really need to do an entry. Life just gets in the way some times. I shouldn't even begin to complain because you've been put through the wringer and back. I am always thinking of you and will say extra prayers. I have to tell you that I just love your new profile picture. I swear you look at least 10 years younger. You take care and concentrate on getting better. Screw the haters. Love you....

Astaryth said...

It was so nice to see an entry from you. I realize how difficult it must be for you to sit at the keyboard right now, so I hadn't been to surprised at not seeing you.

I'll be sending you good thoughts on Tuesday. You take care of you and we will all be here when you are feeling 100%, which I hope is real soon!

Sonya said...

Here for you.

You should never have to explain why or why not your write or make tags to anyone!

You're health is more important to most of us here!!

I'll be watching your sisters blog for an update!!

Sending you a hug and kiss!!

i've thought about you a lot over the past few weeks, wondering if you had had your surgery and how things were going for you. you will be in my prayers! i love the birdhouse photo for the community challenge...fun and whimiscal. :) i do want to get back to blogging, but for now, entries will be very sporadic, but thanks for stopping by and encouraging me to get back. :) God bless you!!

Jeannette said...

So nice to see a posting from you Donna, we seem to have lost track of each other along the way. Rest assured you will be in my prayers and thoughts for your surgery. I know fear only two well. I have my next diabetic tests coming up soon, my lovely nurse, the only one I could talk to and trusted has left. Then in a few weeks, my bone density scan, my next mammogram and my oncologist. It is all weighing so heavily on my mind so I understand how you feel completely. xxxxxx

i love you so much.....you are in all my prayers....most nights at work my thoughts go to you and i think of you and smile...so know you are always thought of kindly. Any person who would be stupid enough to send you a crappy email at this time is heartless. I am sorry you had to deal with anyone like that.
i will go to your sisters blog...i will be worried sick on Tues and Weds until we know you are ok.
