BRAMS AND RK4...HERE'S FOR YOU :-*

I GOT A PAINBLOCK AND TOGETHER WITH PAINPUMP PAIN IS FINALLY BETTER.
WIDE AWAKE EATING. AM HUNGRY. HAVEN'T EATEN FOR 2 DAYS ALMOST.
AM EATING RICEPORRIDGE WITH CINNAMON,SYRUP AND MILK AND WATCH THE SNOW FALLING DOWN OVER CITY.
WE HAVE GOTTEN LOTS AND ALL AROUND BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.

IT'S BEEN 2 ROUGH DAYS AND EVEN IF YOU ARE HERE FIGHTING WITH ME, I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH...DEEP DOWN THIS IS A LONELY FIGHT I NEED TO TAKE ON MY OWN WITH MYSELF, PAINFUL MEMORIES THAT COMES BACK FROM ANOTHER TIME YEARS AGO.

"I AM NOW AND FOREVER ME
NOONE ELSE CAN I EVER BE...."

Thanks Malin!  :D

I am so relieved for you that the pain is finally subsiding and you are feeling a bit more like yourself. Must have been a nightmare time. Phew! Your description sounds so cosy and snug, I can just imagine you smiling at last and eating something delicious, watching the snow fall and the Christmas lights.... 8)

Long may this last. Food will give that body of yours some energy and weapons to fight the battle for you to get well. Make sure you drink lots of fluids now to go with it....no beer though  ;)

And yes, oh yes. You are who you are. And that's pretty good :). What happens to your body doesn't affect that, but it hurts and makes you feel bad for a while. It will pass.

(((((((((BIG relieved hug!!!))))))))

Enjoy a better day - you deserved this!

I'm so glad to hear that your pain is under control and your appetite is back. Enjoying food again is a really good sign.

Don't let the memories beat you down. You've been so strong through all of this - we've all seen that here on the thread. You had the strength to get through the bad time in the past, and you'll find the strength to win this fight too.

Hoping for you that getting the pain under control without the epidural marks a new phase in your recovery. Hopefully you'll be able to take a trip outside and see the snow in person soon.

Malin

Glad to hear that you felt up to eating something - I am a big fan of porridge too. Good soul food. Hope the block and pump keep the pain at bay and it starts to settle back down again. You are such a fighter in all of this. I saw a pic that N posted of the snow and it looks significant! The UK has had a little today and of course everything grinds to a halt...schools close, trains stop.....all for about 2mm of flakes. We are useless with snow every time it happens!

Hope you have had a restful day,

Oh no. Thank you so much for keeping us in the loop, but I'm really sad for Malin that things have taken a turn for the worse today. Please send her our love and let her know that we're keeping her in our thoughts. I hope that tomorrow will be a much better day for her.

Even though I don't post a lot, I'm always following your thread Malin and pulling for you and thinking good things about you. It saddens me to hear you're suffering (more) again.

"I AM NOW AND FOREVER ME
NOONE ELSE CAN I EVER BE...."               You said it best and it's true. You have so much fineness in you.

Keep Smiling Malin . . . .Keep fighting  .  .. .isn't the snow peaceful?  We are UNUSUALLY WARM here in the states.  I love watching the snow fall . . . . .I hope it snows a lot when I have my surgery .  . . I don't feel so bad being stuck in the CPM machine then.  I can then sit in the window and watch the kids play outside in it!  Keep up your spirits.  .Sending virtual hugs . . . . . :'(

Oh Malin  ???

Sorry the temperature is up again, and that awful swelling is back - just hang in there, and remember that you have many friends thinking of you and wishing you better times. I will be thinking of you and crossing my fingers that this is something your doctors can get under control quickly.

Take care Malin, and here is another Brams special ((((((HUG)))))) for you.

Come on life, give our Malin some peace from this now.

Stay strong, Malin - it's been a tough period for you with the long journey and switching from the epidural to the pain pump. Keeping my fingers crossed that your docs get things under control and are able to bring your temperature and the swelling back down. I'm so very glad that you have Nettan there with you. Wishing you strength and better days very soon.
