Day two at the hospital

“Pain is never permanent.” – Saint Teresa of Avila As I near the end of my second day in the hospital I have to tell you all that today has been so much more challenging on many levels. It’s been a long day that I’m so glad has nearly passed. Today I’ve discovered a few […]

The day began with me feeling pretty cruddy. In just the first day I have discovered a few of the things being in the hospital: The […]

Amanda - You actually made me tear up tonight. I’ve been saying it for days but I just really hope you feel much better soon.

In the hospital, again.

Ginger - Oh Amanda, what a difficult journey you have been on lately. I cannot imagine the frustrations and emotions you are experiencing, even though you are so good at expressing them in writing. I’ll be sure to say extra prayers for you and your family.
Btw, I have had 2 HSG’s and they will be a cake walk compared to what you have been through so far. Hopefully it will provide answers for you and a path to move forward on.

A few good moments, my photography logo & web site

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” -Dale Carnegie I suppose right about now “hope” is probably the most important thing for me to have as I face the waiting game along with the many […]

The scary medical wait begins

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” -Martin Luther King Jr. Today would have been my “follow up” visit for the first D&C if everything had gone as planned. Unfortunately, instead it was one of […]

kristy pennino - ditto to that, joleen. transparency is very helpful at times like these for those of us that care and worry. it takes a great deal of courage to share and be so open with issues so traumatic and personal. dr. volker gallichio says hang in there and make sure you get some rest amanda! :-)

Amanda Kern - thanks guys. It’s definitely been tough to rest this mind of mine until more time passes. That said on just 2 1/2 hours of sleep between being in discomfort still from the effects of surgery and just having my mind unsettled about all the recent news. :o( They say pain is weakness leaving the body…so give me a bit more time and I’ll seriously be tough as nails guys. I don’t see how I can have much more weakness inside me after all I’ve been through these last few weeks.
