I went to see the chief colon surgeon today. He said that I am not healthy enough for the surgery. They will try to treat the recurrent diverticulitis with E.R. visits, hospital admissions, and drains if need be. The last resort would be emergency surgery. But then, I would be a REALLY high risk! So it seems they should do it now. I am still taking a strong antibiotic and may have to go back to the E.R. tomorrow. I DO plan on returning, as soon as I am better and off all the drugs! I love all my blog followers, and thank you so much for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers!!!

I got home from the E.R. yesterday afternoon after being there 10 hours. I need part of my colon cut out, major surgery. But right now, I am too sick to have the surgery. I am on strong antibiotics, which are making me nauseous and other things. I am using a walker, and in bed a lot. So while I am on the antibiotic (10 days) I will not be posting or visiting. Just too sick. I see the head surgeon on Monday, and will update you after the visit. Feel free to e-mail me if you want. Hope to see each of you soon!!

It is 5:30 A.M. and I have gotten another attack of diverticulitis. Since my colon perforated the last time, they may want to do surgery. I don't know when I will be back home. They have told me it is not a good surgery. I will be in University Of Virginia in Charlottesville. Hope to see you soon!

There is at least one company in the valley that takes people on balloon rides. Looks like this one lit on a wire!
But it went right on past.
Have you ever been on a hot air balloon ride?

One watched the earth getting farther and farther away.
One watched the stars getting nearer and nearer.”
