Surgery Round Two

On Friday night I had to go to the ER and on Monday was admitted back to Cincinnati for an emergency second surgery. Along with ncreased pain I had lost all mobility ad function of my neck and cerivcal spine. They did another surgery and decided that I had a leak and that my body just wasn't absorbing CSF fluid like it should. They are waiting to see if I will need an additiona surgery. We don't know why this is happeing. I was abble to be upright today the first time in almost 5 days so that was a big improvement. It's all very scary and painful but we are hanging in there.

Oh my goodness - I don't know you but just wanted to send some well wishes. It's too much! I hope they figure things out and you are on the mend soon.

That feeling has stayed with me - that your physical suffering continues. I am so, so sorry that even MORE has come your way.

I thought about what you wrote once, when your husband said that people start to think it is your fault, or something that you did wrong, when thing after thing after wretched thing comes barreling into your life. (I know he's right about that. I have run across those kinds of people...unfortunately.)

It is so unfair and so hurtful and all-things-wrong when others dare to think that way. Maybe they'll do anything to grip the illusion of control?

It is NOT your fault and you have NOT done anything to bring on more pain. It is just happening, and it's horrible, and I wish it wasn't.

And another birthday without Toby...

There are no words that do it justice. None.

I long for you to have a break from the extremity of everything you're being faced with - not half as much as YOU are longing for that, I know.

I hope things start letting up soon. This surgery was really rough. I had to be awake for it and that was scary as heck. I couldn't move, either, and it was incredibly painful. I tried thinking about Toby and pretending I was holding his little hand. When we were finished, the surgeons and anesthesiologists told me that I must have discovered zen or inner peace or something because they'd never seen anyone as still. I think it was because Toby was with me in spirit.
