Thank you Sweet Blogging Friends

You know I cannot say this enough and I know I sound like a broken record but Blog Land is a wonderful place with very wonderful and kind hearted people.


My friend Diana over at her blog Nana Diana Takes a Break
put up a post a few days ago to have prayers and good wishes sent to my hubby who was going through a rough time.


He woke up on Wednesday at 3am to severe abdominal pain.  We went to the ER and they tried to get the pain under control and find out what was the cause.  All the tests were coming back normal so we were all baffled and scared to what this might be.


They finally got a GI specialist in and admitted him to the hospital and then did some exploratory surgery and found a bile duct to be almost completely closed off.  They opened it up and put a stent in that will be removed in about 6 weeks.  After this procedure and surgery he has been slowly getting the pain under control.  The doctors are cautiously optimistic this was the problem and when all of this calms down from the surgery he will be feeling 100% better.

I have to thank all of you for the wonderful thoughts and healing wishes along with the prayers.  I am a big believer in the power of prayer and I know it worked for us and I feel blessed that some of you that know me prayed and others that did not know me prayed for us too.  That is remarkable and I am truly blessed to have all of you doing this for us.

This man is my hero, my best friend and my partner in all my crazy decor things so I will be so happy to have him back to his old self soon.

Thank you for all your good wishes and prayers.  It made a big difference.

My hero, my friend, my soul mate.
Thank you from both of us.
Terry and Kris

  34. Terry and Kris - just know that prayers are continuing for you both and your doctors. Prayer is a very powerful thing - something John and I have really been fortunate enough to receive a lot of this last year. When your Dr. says your surgery was the closest thing to a miracle he has ever seen - you just smile and say "I know".

    Continued prayers for you all.

  54. Thank God that your husband has gotten to the route of his pain and will be back to normal, soon. It's not fun when your other half is hurting and out of commission. My husband is still recouperating from his surgery...it will be a total of 3 months of recovery from his fall on the ice.
    Best wishes to you!

  55. Kris what a friend I am? This brought tears to my eyes, truly. I have been so wrapped up in my own world with the house, I missed this and I am so sorry. Please forgive a fool. I will never be too busy again. I know how important your hubby is to you and how you cherish one another. I'm so happy to hear he's doing okay and I will stay on top of this. Again, I feel so horrible.
