    Hoping and praying for you, that they get everything without any complications...and you recover as quickly as possible.

    Listen, get a nice little pillow to hug.... seriously, if you hold it against your stomach/abdomen.... it will help you get up and lie down a little easier... don't want to be a turtle on your back--even as much as you love Turtles. Learned this from several very wise women. :)

    Still in hospital
    In loads of pain, not going home yet
    He said things were a mess in my belly and only had about two years to live at this rate.
    He said it was a Lots of cancer so I don't know until everything gets sent to pathology if anything spread.
    On lots of meds, just wanted to check in and say thanks for your love and support.

    So glad that you're out of surgery and that there were no complications.

    I'm hoping that the tumors haven't masticated and that you're not looking at any spread beyond one organ/area. I'm wishing you a speedy recovery as well as positive news for the future.

    well surgery was on Monday and I just home tonight Thursday night
    please excuse my typo.
    Doctor said that my belly was a mess in there and that everything had to go to pathology
    So maybe even more cancer but the doctor said that if I hadn't have had this surgery now I would have been dead in two years I have a draining tube on my right side that hurts.
    Things itch that I can't scratch. It hurts to breath, laugh, cry, hicupp etc.
    I have an abdominal binder one which keeps everything tucks in, it fells good yet hurts at the sometime. The one time I got to see the area with no binder I did NOT see the flat stomach I wanted too. I can't sleep straight because all the stitches feel like they are going to pop out.

    Next apt with doctors on Monday and getting the drainage tube out. This is going to be fun trying to sleep in one are and having to wake up my husband just to get help getting up to go to the bathroom.

    Thanks again for your love and support the journey isn't over yet but the big hurdle is done.

    Well guys,
    it's..................going
    The doctor said that once he got in there my belly was a mess. He said that if I didn't have had that surgery within the next two years I would have been dead.
    Emotionally I am doing a lot better than I thought I would be.
    Physically I am in a lot of pain. I started getting a fever of 102.4 last night so I had to go to the hospital but luckily everything was still ok. I have a drainage tube that comes out my right side AND IT HURTS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The other great thing is that if you remember me talking on other threads where I talk about my neighbor friend who has a little girl that plays with my son a lot but she never disciplines her. And also how I am always there for her problems but she is never there for me. Well, she was there for me last night. I needed to go to the hospital because of the fever and my son was having an autistic rant and couldn't go to the hospital and I needed someone there with me as I couldn't even get in and out of the car by myself. So Gigi (my friend) and I had been texting and she asked me what was wrong and I told her (figured it couldn't hurt as she probably wasn't going to do anything), well I was wrong.
    She offered to take me to the hospital and stay with me.
    Well they took me straight back and she stayed with me. I was pretty vulnerable in front of her as I was crying and in pain. she petted my hair and made jokes. Gigi has this funny free side she has been showing lately (instead of the depressing side I usually see) so she really was there for me. Gig is 42? 45? around there and she was flirting with the radiology tech guy. Openly flirting. As they start to wheel me out of the cubicle Gigi yells "At least you have a great view while they do the scan!"
    So that's what has been up with me.

    Again thank you for the love and support you guys show me. It means more to me than you guys know.
    Thank you guys!
    I hope all of you are well.

    UPDATE: Well my fever has gone up to 103 and my doctor wants to see me as soon as he gets back into town at 7pm tonight. I'll keep you updated.
