Keeping everyone posted!
Went to the doctors today & it doesn't look too good for me, will have to have major surgery on my blockage in my aorta cause I have no pulse in my right arm/hand, also, need all kinds of tests done first to see where they need to cut me open, most likely it's going to be a big cut from my chest down to below my belly button. The doctor also said that if all goes well from the surgery, I will be almost back to normal in as little as a couple of weeks. I will be finding out in about a week when I will be going under the knife & I will let you all know as soon as I find out. Hopefully, it won't take too long for all this to take place & I'll be back to normal in no time. Thank you all for your kind support, it means so much to me.
Hugs,
Sherry

I'm so sorry Sherry! Sounds scary! But, it sounds like you have a good doctor and recovery won't be too long. Just remember to take it easy after, but move around too to build up your strength faster. I wish you lots of luck and hope you will be good as new when you get back. Please let us know when you go in! Hugs, Courtney

Scrapaholic Sherry says:
Here's the update we've all been waiting for, the actual surgery...well, here goes! The doctor said I can have the major surgery as my heart can take it & there's a way to get in there & do it, the down sides of this surgery is that it's about 2 - 3 months for a total recovery but the outcome of the surgery, if all goes well, is that it's very long-term, however, if I have the smaller surgery done, it's very short-term & that's the one that I will have a two week full recovery from. So, I will be going back to the doctor in three weeks time to give her my decisions on what surgery will be done & when. I already decided which surgery I will be going for, it's just when it's going to be will be the tough decision to make...obviously, it will definitely be sometime after the holidays. Right now, I'm dealing with a nasty head cold & my brain is quite fuzzy to be making anymore major decisions, besides I have three weeks to pick when the surgery will be. Thanks all!! Hugs, Sherry xxxxx

I think you made the right decision Sherry! It's going to be a rough road and hopefully you have someone with you helping you and taking care of you until you recover! But, in the end, you are going to feel so much better and have it a longer lasting effect! Having good health apparently comes with a price! But, I wish you well and that it doesn't take as long as the doctors predict!

I've been through a lot of surgeries with my mother and my husband's mother. The key is to keep up your health and getting up, walking around and building up your strength...despite how much it hurts sad to say. What I do for pain, is wet a towel, put it in the microwave for 5 minutes then wrap it in a dry towel and let it soak into my skin...it works wonders. Pain meds never worked for me and the only thing that does is ibuprophin...maybe that will help.

Does any of this work for headaches. I have had headaches off and on from god knows what. Won't go to doctors, affraid of the bill that might come later. Robert already has had to get work done for his back and neck and we got some "surprise" bills for it. Now that he is out of a job can't afford that chance. So if any one has any home remidies for headaches, other than pills, I would greatly appreciate it. I have been taking advil, three at a time seems to work, but I would only take it once or twice in one day. Affraid of getting addicted to pills. Oh, sorry Sherry, glad to hear you are doing better.

Hi, I want to update everyone about my surgery, it has been put on hold for a couple of months as I'm in the middle of putting together my daughter's baby shower, it's a GIRL!! Can't wait for her to come, her due date is April 5th. So, with that being said, my surgery is going to be booked for the end of April. Thanks for your amazing support, it means the world to me!!

Hi all,
Here's an update of everything that's been going on with me lately with my medical condition. I'm in the process of getting ready to go under the knife for my bypass surgery on my blocked abdominal aorta. It will happen just after the holidays which is only a couple of months away. The surgeon said that it is a major surgery with a 7 to 10 day hospital stay & a 2 to 3 month recovery period if all goes well. I'm not sure of how much I will be able to visit here in that time. Please keep me in your prayers. Thanks so much for all the support you all have given me. I truly appreciate it lots!! Hugs xxxxx

Hugs!! My partner's cousin has some sort of a bulge in her abdominal aorta so I have become more versed in what can happen and different types of surgeries. Her's is not operable at this time, but she hopes to get that chance one day. I wish all the best for getting your surgery and for your recovery xxxxxxxxxx

Hi Sherry. Have just caught up with your latest news. Sounds like once again Christmas isn't going to be very joyful for you. Take things slowly and look after yourself - in a few months time it will all be over and you will be on the road to recovery. Thinking of you. Hugs, Joce, xoxox

Went to see the surgeon today, all the tests came back good so the surgery will be scheduled for sometime after the 1st of January. The receptionist will be calling in a few days to schedule it. So now, it's a waiting game. Right now, I have a really bad head cold so I'm sorry for the lack of commenting/voting on all your wonderful pages. Going to bed in a few minutes cause I'm feeling terrible right now. I want to thank you all for the support with all of this, I really appreciate it so much!! Hugs xxxxx

Here's another update on my recovery from my surgery. It seems that I have severe nerve damage in my upper right leg that happened during the surgery & because of it, my recovery period is going to be a lot longer than they said it was going to be. Well, at least I'm recovering & not getting worse! Thanks everyone for all your kind words & support!!
Hugs,
