Haven't posted for days so I wanted to write a quick note... have been feeling so very exhausted and sick and tired ever since I got out of the hospital, had very few good days but today I am actually feeling a little better but still very tired feeling over all. Have Doc appts all next week so I hope to see if maybe I need a little blood work or something or if it is normal to still be feeling this tired and wore out. It was a month ago yesterday and the day before that I had the surgeries, two days in a row of surgery. I really thought I should be back to normal by now but am certainly not. As far as my baby Celena, she had a thyroid ultrasound today, more blood work and has to go to hospital the 31st for some nuclear medical test of some sort... they are still trying to get to the bottom of it all. She calls and keeps me informed. They did say she has some sort of heart murmur in the left chamber of her heart but there is more to her problem than that.
Hope everyone out there is safe from that awful weather! I know last month during my illnes that a large number of you who sent cards and care pkgs live in Missouri and nearby. I have been prayng for you all and hope you are all safe and sound!! Please have a blesssed and safe weekend. My prayers go out to all of you who have been affected in any way by that horrible bad weather. God Bless you and yours!


  1. Carmen,
    Hope you get answers you need this week and begin to feel better soon. Thank you for your note. I admire you for overcoming adversity. I finally got my blog going as well as my Etsy shop. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Celena.

  2. Carmen, I received the sweetest note from you today, thank you that was so sweet. It will take you awhile to get your strengh back, you have been through alot.
    And I will continue to pray that your daughter will be alright and that all the tests come back fine. Have a nice weekend. Hugs, Lecia

  3. My thoughts and prayers are still still with you Carmen and with your daughter also!! Hope the docs figure out what's wrong. You must remember though, you were very very sick in the hospital, it's gonna take time for your body to recover from that!!

  4. Hi Carmen, I am so glad you are feeling better.. you have been through a lot having two surgeries back to back...and it takes time to recover from 2 anesthesias. And Celena is going through tests...I know it is very hard not being there with her...I pray that what they find will be a manageable's just all the waiting and waiting.
    Take care,

  5. You and Celena are both in my daily prayers Carmen, I'm wondering if you could be low on iron from blood loss during surgery?? I got your lovely note today, brightened up my day:)
