Oh Kila, Forgive Me!

You have no idea what a lousy blogger I have been - just the WORST. That's why I am not even sure I should accept this award from Kila, which she gave me back in APRIL. In blogger time? I have committed a SIN. I know she is too kind and forgiving and nice and not a meanie and saintly to give me hell on the 'net, so I'm wallowing in a self-made crap-bath, riddled with guilt for not acknowledging her gift sooner.

I honestly don't know what has happened with me in the blogging world, but I can see that I'm not alone. She of the Hobo Carts, My Real Friend IRL, and Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee are on hiatus. (The Snarky Aussie had a brief fake hiatus, but just did it to scare everyone and get comments for his ego.)

So, major thanks to Kila for giving me this honor...hope I can post it in my sidebar without feeling too much guilt!

I have a REAL excuse for not blogging lately - and that is the fact that my husband is not well. He is having horrible abdominal pains, can't eat, and can imagine the rest. We went to the ER last Friday night, and his bloodwork, CT scan, etc. came back normal. Blood pressure was 198/110, which is NOT good! However, pain can cause that. Four days later, and he's not better. Ultrasound showed no gall stones...but he may have a nonfunctioning gall bladder. We meet with the surgeon today at 1:30. Pray for us...and I will be back to the blogging world as soon as I am able.

Oooo, sounds rough! Get well soon, Roger!

I do hope they get to the cause of the symptoms so he can get some treatment. It must be pretty rough for him~ I will say a prayer for you all.

WT said...

Yes, you have been an awful blogger lately! There's no excuse for such tardiness!!! Seriously, I hope your hubby gets on top of whatever is causing the problem.

I've been struggling to post lately too, I'm down to a couple a week (and even that is an effort), and they are just crap I've found somewhere else.

Pamela said...

oh dear... prayers that the doctors find out quickly that it something easy to heal.

Kila said...

Yeah, I totally take back that award since you're down to ONCE A WEEK!

Just kidding of course. You're one of my oldest blogging buddies.

Scary about your hubby. He's such a good guy. I hope the docs figure out what his problems are (the abdominal ones anyway, hehe) and fix him up real soon! I'll say some prayers for him!

Bond said...

Hoping you find out what is causing the pain...

Take care of your family...we will be waiting to hear and to have you back with us

I was going to tell you all about how we "need" to have sex but then I read the part about your husband being sick. Oh, buzzkill.

I hope he gets well soon!

"wallowing in a self-made crap-bath" That line just cracks me up, but I have been doing that a lot lately. I too have been rather absent, I have been calling it MIB(Missing In Blogland)

My thoughts are with the 3 of you. I hope he is well soon!!

Just stopped by to say hello and see that you need some prayers...hope the docs find out real fast what's going on with your husband! Hope he's better very soon!!

Claudia said...

I hope Roger gets better soon!! Hang in there!

Molly said... and your husband are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that they found out what is wrong and that the recovery is speedy. Take care.

desert songbird - he had pain meds, it was rougher on me! LOL!

chrisb - they didn't come up with any answers, but the prayers worked - he is A-OK now!

wt - I don't feel so bad, now...just can't get in the mood to write anything, you know? And there was SO MUCH to write about the hubby's trip to the ER!

pamela - doctors and tests found nothing, but hubby appears healed!

kila - thanks for understanding! And hubby is much better - but only the physical problems are better - his mind is STILL in need of help!

bond - all is much better! Thanks!

m@ - there's always a need, isn't there? That probably would do a lot to heal what ails me!

kaytabug - so glad I'm not the only one who is MIB!! Love it!

bichonpawz - he is better, tho the doctors didn't do much to help that...I think Mother Nature and God were working together on this one!

claudia - many thanks! And he is TONS better!

mjd - thank you - and no answers, but he feels better, so that's all that matters to me right now!

Tiffany, I am obviously the worst of all. You can see how long it took me to get through my feed reader. Pathetic, I tell you. I'm so glad Roger is feeling better. It must be incredibly frustrating to not have an answer about what was going on. Good healthy vibes to both of you. (Late vibes probably count if I include a pair of virtual sect shoes, right?)
