Beda

I am praying that they can get the US done and it alleviates your worry. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and better they find it now and deal with it for you. I hope the meds side effects get a little easier and I am sending you lots of hugs from tiny Ben and me.

I will try and find out from the others your facebook page so if I miss you here we can catch you there.

LOVE AND HUGS

I assume since beda has suddenly stopped posting that she had her surgery Monday. That is the only thing that would keep her away. I'm sure she is in a lot of pain and has been through a very traumatic experiene. I'm sure posting is the last thing on her mind right now. I know we are all going crazy wondering how she is doing, but we will just have tp be patient until she gets back to us.

Has anyone heard how beda's surgery went. I am really concerned about her. We were talking a lot on AIM everyday before her surgery, and then she suddenly said goodnight that she was very tired and that was last Sunday.  We have gotten very close over the past few months and she's even planning a trip to the states to see me, and so I find this odd since she knows how concerned I am. I picture her crying and in so much pain and I would like to be there to hold her hand.

I'm quite concerned too. I was talking to her a lot of facebook before her operation then I was admitted to hospital on Sunday night to get my pain under control.

Really hope she's ok.

okay Guys i have heard from Beda today, today being thursday.

She is over the worst- she still has 6 IV's and feels too weak to be posting anything yet so please bare with her on that one.  As soon as she feels able she will post and start a diary but until then patieince will be the key.

She is having 'pains' that you cant even imagine and there was some crisis/drama too, but that will be up to her to say.

But she is here and is over the worst, i am sure that it wont be long until she is able to post.

I do have a number so if anyone wishes me to pass on a specific message i am more than willing.........pm me and i will pass it on (t message that is not her number)

Lisa
