Just a quick update!

I didn't get home until almost 5:30....long day! I was asked if I was in any pain and I had to retort, "Only when I breath!" The Nurse assigned to me had her last chemo round last year..her cancer? Breast Cancer! It's amazing why people's path cross isn't it? She called down to see if I was suppose to be experiencing this kind of pain and they told her no....enter Vicodin. Within a half an hour I was able to take in a decent amount of air in without pain....my o2 levels never dropped below 92 and a chest x-ray was ordered 4 hours after the test to make sure there wasn't any fluid building up in my lungs (standard procedure)


Sleep was not restful....kinda hard to get into a good REM when every time you move, you kinda wince in pain...even though another vicodin did help some...rolling over in bed was a major OUCH!


So today I will take to my bed, try and catch up on some sleep....my mind is as weary as my body right now....there is no such thing as a good day when there wasn't a good night spent before it!


I want to thank the many wonderful J-Landers that have reached out through the net to brighten up many of my days! Jeanne as usual your timing and choice of cards were perfect...it was waiting for me when Jim and I came home and Jcole....you have no idea how much that quilt meant to me...I stayed wrapped up in it all night and it's the perfect shade of pink! lol Every commenter has touched my life and my heart so much that I will never forget your kindness and the way you carried me on the days that I stumbled.


I am blessed yet again with wonderful on-line friends and every time something good comes from me sharing this journey with the WWW and I inadvertently help someone else... it will be in honor of all thatyou gave to me!


 


Love,
Kimberleigh

Praying for some relief from the pain.  It is amazing who you do run into while going through yucky stuff.  It always seems to be someone you really need.

It's my belief that it's never an accident when we cross paths with kindred spirits. Sometimes, it's just what we need to lift our spirits and somebody up there knows that.

I'm sorry to hear that your sleep wasn't so restful. I hope this weekend will be much better for you. Stay in touch with us as you feel up to it. I'll check back in and you are in my prayers.

hugs ~

Your words linger for days, with me.  I hear them constantly & even though you may think that your entries are helping you & you constantly thank Jlanders for all their support...the truth is, YOU are the one helping us.  You seem to be always giving.

Keeping you in my prayers~

Kim, glad you got through that dear, now you just rest as much as you can, rebuild your strength and keep that humor going.  Think all of us would love to be able to touch base with you other than the internet.  Any chance you'd share an address with all of us so we could send you cards, caring thoughts...etc.  Take it easy dear....Arlene (AJ)

Hoping for gentle warm zephyrs to riffle over you and bring you the sense of a warm spring day as you catch up on some well earned pain free sleep.  One just like I have experienced here in the English Lakes today.
Sleep....blessed sleep...perchance to dream dear Kim.....God Bless!  Jeanie xx

I'm not sure you could have such great friends if you weren't a terrific person yourself. I hope that you've gotten caught up on the zzzz's by now.
