MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE, Friends & Family!! Love, joy & peace to you all!
I (apparently) made it thru the peritoneal placement surgery! I am so very blessed and thankful for it! However, as with how it tends to go with me…there were complications! What was meant to be same day placement surgery for the peritoneal cath turned into an urgent admission and two day stay to include a cath placement for immediate hemodialysis!
There are other little issues I’m facing at this point, but I honestly can’t even say that I’m dealing with them right now. But that’s really neither here nor there! RIGHT NOW, I’m (maybe barely) BUT STILL STANDING!!! And to b so brutally honest, it feels AMAZING to NOT be so swollen that it’s hard to even breathe!
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT, LOVE & PRAYERS!!
…ok maybe it wasn’t a QUICK update lol…merry Christmas Eve ❄️

Good morning, Friends & Fam!!! I know, I know…I don’t post so much anymore! Forgive me, please!
I really do appreciate everyone’s support, thoughts, and prayers. They have gotten me through the hard days more than you know! Thank you!
As many of you know, I’m going through the long, drawn-out, and most painful process of having to get dentures in order to be considered to even get on the waiting list for a pancreas-kidney (or even. kidney) transplant. So today, I’m headed to the dentist…filled with anxiety much like the last time I went! They will be extracting 4-6 more teeth this time, giving me time to heal a bit, and then going back in to get more at a later date! This is so much more draining and complicated AND PAINFUL than I imagined!
I only wanted to update you all and THANK YOU!! As I said, it’s been all of your support, thoughts & prayers that have helped get me through. Thank YOU all so much and THANK GOD for EVERYTHING & EVERY DAY (especially the hard ones)!
