Pavarotti Is Dead And I Don't Feel So Good Myself.....

*

*

I'm goin' to see what there is to see,

So if you go from nowhere,

On the road to somewhere,

And you meet anyone....

You'll know it's me.

(From the movie musical, "The Unsinkable Molly Brown") *

I'm sorry I haven't posted much lately but I haven't been feeling well. So this morning things got so bad---and all my fears came true---- as I was finally hit slap in the head with the reality of the undeniable fact that I have developed a rather serious health problem ---and I ended up in the Emergency Room, dang it.

The doc in the ER did the initial work but I will have to follow up with my regular doctor, beginning as soon as possible next week. I still don't feel well but I'm determined to beat this thing. Hell, I figure that ANY health problem is easier for me to deal with than the alcoholism which almost killed me recently. So I am seriously determined to beat this thing. Let me repeat myself: I AM going to beat it.

Anyway, I'll be off work today and tomorrow to rest up and get situated----and then I'll post again with more information. (Right now I'm in kind of a "deer-in-the-headlights" type of mood.)

But, like The Unsinkable Molly Brown sang in the movie: "I ain't down yet!"

And..... as my Texan buddies in AA like to say about life's difficulties: "This ain't the hill I'm gonna die on."

Bo, I am 71 and have had about 8 "serious" illnesses and 24 hour tumors and possibly fatal conditions. None of these turned into something I couldn't face and handle and survive so I am sending your some good vibes. Keep us all posted because I know for sure that nothing could be worse than the alcoholism (in my case, agoraphobia). We are all thinking about you and wishing you well. Lily

I'm right in the middle of the others, wishing you a speedy recovery from whatever is ailing you. I'm just glad you had the presence of mind to seek help instead of just letting it go. Hugs.

Bless your heart, if things got any rockier for you, you'd find yourself on top of Everest! Take care, hon, and post when you can.

My prayers are with you! I hope this is just a blip instead of a hurdle, but if it's a big-un, we're with you!

Hey BRN - Just want to let you know I am thinking about you and to remind you that God loves you and that there isn't anything your going through that he doesn't already know about. Cast your cares on him and let him carry you so you can rest in him.

Sending love and prayers your way :)
