I suspect that I am not the only one here who is impressed by your calm and philosophical attitude to your medical circumstances. With your brave and sensible approach, you could even be British!

Oh, that's only the face you see here. Believe me, there has been angst that I won't really talk about in public. A couple of people have suffered my whining in PMs and IMs. I'm surprised they haven't disowned me as a friend [ohwell]

Wow, glad you're doing ok, but that sounds like quite the exciting procedure to look forward to. Is it painful and tedious, or just painful?

A little of each. They can't numb the inner peritoneum so the initial needle insertion is pretty painful, but it's only a moment. Then you have to lay very still for half an hour, which I'm not always good at if I'm not sleepy.

I think me-toos are always acceptable in topics like this and I appreciate the thoughts (that goes for everyone).

Isn't it the best proof that they are true friends? Wouldn't you do the same for them? Cherish those friendships, as this is the best thing that can happen in life. (Apart from true love, I heard, but that I can't vouch for - yet. [Wink] )

I completely agree with this. There are a lot of people here who would be happy to lift what worries we can bear for you, Steen. While we can't carry your ailment, we can hope (and/or pray) that the treatment is successful. There are ears for you to listen and hearts which want the most favorable outcome.

I wish they could fix you properly post haste, Steen, but sometimes baling twine and duct tape are the best short term solution. I'm glad you're able to at least get back to a semblance of normalcy now. Here's to your continued improving health.

Yes, Steen. It is good to learn you have returned from the brink of another surgery. [Big Grin] May you continue to mend and have your health restored completely!

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Steen - I'll post for myself - but also for some of the other mostly lurkers out there - we're think of you and praying for you to get better.
