I'm back to journaling again!

Hello you all!  I am so excited.  Yesterday my Physical Therapist gave me permission to type again!  Ugghh, I was suffering not doing journals, LOL. 

My shoulder and arm still hurt.  I have to keep them in a sling part of the time.  And I still have to go to physical therapy.  I am not sure how long.  The Physical Therapist said we would play it by ear.  I can't believe falling down the steps could cause all of this.  It was two weeks ago that I fell.  I thought I would be better by now! 

Okay, enough on that subject.  Let's see, what has been new since I last talked to you?  I got 1 gig of RAM for my computer, which i am SO excited about, but I can't figure out how to instal it, LOL.  You think I would be able to do this.  I installed my own DSL, so you think I would be a more clever girl.  Oh well.  Anyway, I am going to see if my friend Jen will come over and put it in for me. :)

What else is new?  I am losing weight.  It is a very novel approach.  I am also going to be doing a weight loss journal.  If you are interested in finding out the address of the journal, and want to be included, please leave a comment in the comments section.  I will include you.

Hmm, what else is new?  I still need to get those pics I promised you, LOL.  I have not been able to do much with one arm, LOL.  

This weekend Val and I are going to have a Superbowl Party.  That should be fun!

On Monday John and I are going to Hershey again.  We will be there Monday through Wednesday for appointments.  On Monday his oncologist will probably tell him whether or not his spleen will be removed, to stop his Hemolytic Anemia, so that he will no longer need blood transfusions.  I thought I was fine, but I am somewhat anxious.  I watched a spleenectomy on a video on the web.  Well, in one sense it is a simple procedure.  In another sense they have to do some cutting.  So I am scared. 

Please, I know I need to have faith, so no positive platitudes are necessary, LOL.  I just wanted to say I am scared.  I think it is normal to be scared.  When he is safe at home, I won't be scared anymore.  We were told that the recovery time is six weeks at home to completely recover.  All I know is this.  He almost died so many times, and now I am a little flippy.  Sorry, LOL. 

Okay, that is all for now.  I am SO glad to be back.  Now I can start commenting in your journals now.  If I don't get to you, sorry, I may have to erase some of my alerts, LOL, I have 184 emails!  I may have to start afresh!

Love you all, Krissy :)

PS.  Hello to my new friends Dee and Gundog!   


  1. Welcome back Krissy!  Glad you shoulder and arm is getting better.  Congrats on losing weight!  I'd like to be included in your WL journal.  I'll be praying for John and you.  Take care!

    were all so glad to have you back too. Looking forward to reading some more of your enteries but dont over do it you dont want to be told to stop again... Great to see you back

  3. I don't think faith means an absence of fear, exactly.  I think it means going forward, trusting in spite of not knowing it all, or how it will turn out.  Faith stops fear from paralizing us.  Glad you are better!  I think a tumble down stairs is about the worst home injury one could suffer.  -  Barbara

  4. i am happy you are back.  i wish john luck with his doctors appts.  i will be praying you you two

     Krissy, I am so glad your back.  For some reason my alerts didn't let me know so I will set them again.  Time for the tournament, what fun.  Glad your better.


  20. It`s really nice to have you back Krissy, I hope your arm and shoulder are 100% very soon. I think it`s only natural that you are jittery where John is concerned, you been through so much together not to be. Take care both of you. :o)

    I think I may have said this before but both of my parents have had surgery at Hershey and (as I'm sure you know) they are WONDERFUL there.  Of course, it's all still scary... but at least John's not having his surgery done at Gus's Spleen-O-Rama.

  23. jlocorriere052/03/2007 5:35 PM

    Great to see you back Krissy! I'm sure John will be fine if he has to have the splenectomy, he's been through so much already, I know he's a fighter but it is normal to be scared. You shouldn't have watched the video of the op ....too much information for you! Have a great weekend, enjoy the Superbowl! Jeannette xx  

  24. nightmaremom2/03/2007 6:21 PM

  26. So glad you are getting better, I have missed you!!
    Special thoughts to you and John!

    I'd love the link to your weightloss journal!



  32. Glad that you are able to come back to journaling!!  Sorry that John is possibly going to have to have surgery.  I know its scary, and you have a right to be a little apprehensive.  However, I know it will be just fine whether or not they decide to do it.


  33. princesssaurora2/04/2007 1:48 AM

    I am so happy that you are back!  Start fresh with journal alerts... this way you have no pressure!  Of course you are worried and a bit scared for John... that is completely normal!  And, you do have such a strong faith... that is plain to see.

    Prayers coming for John and you.  Enjoy the SUperbowl party tomorrow!  We are having our little one too!

    be well,

    Good Grief Krissy!  I'm glad you're gettting better and able to be on your journal again.  I pray things will go well in Hershey this time around, and that John will be OK too.  Have a great Superbowl day, and God Bless your week!  Love Carolyn :)

  37. I would love the addy to your weight loss journal...what are you doing????/
    So glad to see you back!

  38. Welcome back, Krissy! Get well soon. I can understand your fear about the new procedure that John has to go through. You guys had been through a lot. Praying for you both.  

  39. I am glad you are back and I hope that the rest of your recovery is quick.
    I would like to see your weight loss journal. It is something that I am trying to do and maybe it would help encourage me. I do wish you luck
    It is normal to be scared I would be too. Nothing like having your hubby home to make you feel better. You will both be in my prayers.

    Glad you are back!  Hope you are feeling better and doing well!  Congrats on the weight loss.  I've lost a few pounds moving from FL to KY as well.  Hello to John and hope the appointment went well.


I would love to hear from you. Now is your chance! So what do you want to say?
