I am back on the computer daily. I spent over six and a half weeks in the hospital with a planned major surgery and unknown to anyone, I had a perforated bowel from the first surgery and it took a couple of weeks before my body started seeping fluid from my lower abdomen. They did an emergency major surgery which was touch and go. The surgeon told my husband and I it looked like a hand grenade had gone off inside me. He wasn't sure he could do anything to fix it. He did his best and fortunately I am still here! It has been quite the experience and one I never want to go through again. Even after getting out of the hospital, my strength is very low and I am working on getting back to normal. I rest a lot and friends have been wonderful to bring in meals and do anything else they can to help. I am so fortunate to have such wonderful friends! Thank you! You all know who you are.

I have missed all of my computer friends. Please keep in touch! Thank you for the concerned posts and e-mails.

So, so glad you're on the way to recovery. Jen told me things had been very bad for you and how worried she had been. It's great to see you back into blogging.
I love the necklace you made with Jen and the book she made you is wonderful. Sending you some energy from Oz.
