Update

Seems like I’m going to be in a hospital for a while. Not that doctors have said anything like that, but since I am so much in pain that I barely can walk two feet to the bathroom, I’m thinking going home might not be a good idea… Talking makes me tired and out of breath. Since I might not be in the best condition to back up for the move, my wonderful parents-in-law have promised to drive here from Texas to help us out. That’s nice, but extra props for my parents who obviously want to spare my strength so much that they haven’t called or even sent me an e-mail yet. I’m sure they just want me to rest, right? No, I’m sure they are just out on the sea with their boat, and maybe even my sister hasn’t been able to reach them. Frankly, I’m pretty scared and now starting to realize this is serious stuff. It has taken me an hour to write this, and I think I’m going to need a few hours after this to rest…

    Hon, I’m not trying to scare you – but this is *very* serious. I’m glad they are keeping you there.

    Please have someone communicate how serious to your folks. I know in my case, when I was in critical condition in the hospital, my husband had tried to reassure my family with “she’s okay, she’ll be fine” when there was no such guarantee and in fact, high odds I wouldn’t be.

    It wasn’t until they visited me in the ICU the next day that they actually knew how bad off I had been. Meanwhile, I wondered why no one had even called.

    Your post yesterday was really a brave front – but it can give someone the wrong impression. This is a very serious condition and I’m EXTREMELY glad you are in the hospital.

    To be honest – I don’t know that you’re going to be okay by BlogHer. I’ll pray that you are – but there’s a high chance you won’t be up for it yet by then. I wish I’d known about all of this the other night – I would’ve told you to put off buying tickets and all :(

    Please call me or have your husband call me if there’s ANYTHING at all that I can do. You should still have my number.

    (((((((((((hug))))))))))))))))

    Please just take care of yourself and don’t push it, okay?

    Wow, hang in there and rest, rest, rest. Hope you are doing better real soon.

    Keep trying to rest and know you have all of us thinking about you, sending good vibes and prayers. You’re a tough chick!!!!
