Hey Ya'll!
Most of you know that I am disabled (hip replacements, dislocations, other hip/leg surgeries, etc which have left me in constant pain for many years) and, at times have to be put on bedrest because of the severity of the pain, etc. Well, this is one of those times. I've been very blessed for the past few months in that I've not had constant severe pain. LOL, I've gotten used to having a lesser degree of pain and am very happy that this really severe pain is no longer an ongoing thing, but it's still not pleasant when it comes around :wink: The reason for my post is to ask that you please pray for me and that I will be feeling better soon!
Until then, I won't be here as often as I would like. Those of you who entered the contest on my blog...I will announce the winner this Tuesday, and if anyone else would like to enter...please stop by my blog for details and enter if you would like...I could really use a few more laughs! I will be checking my email once a day!
Thanks so much for your friendship, ya'll are the best :muah: :muah:

:muah: :muah: Sending healing hugs and thoughts your way. I can relate to your suffering. I have multiple sclerosis and post polio syndrome. I fell and broke my back in '03 and that has left me in bed quite a bit. I started having seizures back in April and currently have some broken and chipped ribs as a result of a seizure. I am honestly not asking for sympathy nor am I trying to downplay your suffering, just want to say, friend, someone out here feels your pain. You can bet that my husband and I (my hubby is a minister by the way) will certainly be praying for you. God is great. If there is anything at all that I can do for you, feel free to email me at web2tz@earthlink.net. God bless you! :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :heart: :heart:

Prayer is a very powerful tool and knowing that ya'll are praying for me just brings tears to my eyes! Ya'll are a great group of people! I am very blessed to call you friends :grphug:
You have truly made my day!
Now, if only I had new yarn, I know that would speed the healing process, too :roflhard: :rofl: :roflhard:

Praying for Divine Healing for you and know that nothing is impossible for our God. Hang in there and hope to hear from you again really soon. You are so kind to everyone here and helpful...I look forward to getting to know you better.
Take Care and Rest in the arms of Jesus,

Hey again.
thought i would pop in and say hello during the brief time I'm allowed up.
again, thanks so very much for your well wishes and your prayers, it means so much to me to read these kind things that you have said, thank you.
sorry to unload on you...i hurt so badly and i'm so sad, so very, very sad...I hate to have to stay in bed and Lonnie is out of town on business today, his mom (she stays with us everyweekend) is also with him and i have no one else to talk to...which is probably a good thing cause I'm not in a mood that livens up a conversation, this is for sure :verysad: and, on top of that, even though i said i didn't have anyone to talk to, i hurt too badly to have anyone around talking to me anyway...yes, one of those moods when nothing makes me happy. this is not at all like me so i dislike it so much more!
thanks for allowing me to cry on your shoulders, guys, it's pretty bad to hurt do badly that all you can do is cry....again, thanks for allowing me to vent a bit and use your shoulders.
i don't really know why i felt compelled to say all of this...have no idea, hoping it will make me feel better, i guess.

i hope ya'll all have a fantastic weekend.

Oh, Rebecca, I'm so sorry your feeling this way. I don't suffer from the same physical pain you're in, but I completely identify with the dark mood. I've been diagnosed with severe depression, which I have to take medication for. Mostly the meds work, but now and then, I get in these moods where nothing makes me happy. I don't want to sit at home, but when I go to the store, I don't want to be seen like that, so I just want to go home. I want someone to talk to, but if someone calls, I wish they'd leave me alone. It makes me feel like I'm just selfish and spoiled...but then, it goes away, and I'm fine. I don't know what causes it.

Anyway, I'm praying for you still, and I really hope you feel better soon. It sounds horrible to be in pain, and have no one around to lean on. You can always lean on Jesus, and you can always come here.

Blessings and prayers,
Jennifer

Dear Rebecca,
I just got home from my LYS and my knitting angel helped me put the handles on my felted bag...it's so beautiful...I can't believe how it turned out for my first FO! I will have my son take a picture of it and hopefully will have it posted by Monday.

Father God, I ask you right now in Jesus Name to heal Rebecca of this pain. I thank you Jesus for the stripe you took on your back for her healing. I ask you Lord Jesus to send ministering angels to comfort her. And I thank you Jesus that you always hear us when we pray.

Love and Prayers sent your way all the way from Ohio,

:muah: :muah: :muah: Thanks to all of you once again :muah: :muah: :muah: Ya'll are the best! I am happy to say that I feel a tad better, praise God! Hopefully this will continue steadily. I wish i could stay up long enough to read up about everyone and everything, but I can't. I will take a moment to tell ya'll what my sweet Lonnie has done...yesterday he came home with a bag full of my very, very favorite
Bath and Body works cream (the new Sensual Amber....it's yummy!)...he's so thoughtful :heart:

Some of you may remember that I said that I would like a usb tablet, well, a couple of hours ago he went out to run errands and came home with this (http://www.wacom.com/graphire/4x5.cfm)!!!!! OH My, it's got all sorts of cool software, too... Adobe Elements and Corel Painters Essentials 2 and EverNote Plus and Just Write Office4!!!
I couldn't believe it! He did make me PROMISE that I would not even insert the manual software disc into the computer to read about it for a few more days until I'm 100% off of bedrest.http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_wacomusbtabletandpen6.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/wacomusbtabletandpen6.jpg) http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_wacomusbtabletandpen3.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/wacomusbtabletandpen3.jpg) I must say, I have the best hubby in the world...but, not because he spoils me so, just because he is one of a kind in so many ways. Like I was telling a friend at church a couple of weeks ago when she was telling me what a beautiful voice Lonnie has...I still quiver when he sings...he's a special person indeed! That said...I'm off to knit some on his socks :cheering:
LOL, thought ya'll would like to read some nice things after ya'll just read about my hurting and crying :wink: At least the crying has subsided!

Again, thank you so very, very much for your thoughts and prayers, please continue to do so, feels like they are working :muah:

I'm so glad you're knitting again. I told you that I finished my bag...I've already started my sister's for Christmas...I have the bottom done and already picked up the stitches and I'm on my way up...LOL! My friend, Donna, is the greatest teacher and I remember what she's taught me. She made the cutest "Pedicure Socks". I wish you could see them! She is so funny!

I would like to thank you once again for all of your kindness and the love that and compassion that flows from each of you. :muah: :muah:

I had a set back today, I fell ...weird story, I was napping, the phone rang and I was having some weird dream that was somehow involved, but I don't remember how, you know how dreams are...anyway, it was so important that I answer the phone quickly (something about the dream) and I got tangled in the bed linens while struggling to get to the phone and fell out of bed, right onto my hip! My bed is very high, too (Lonnie raised it so that I can get in and out easily and, of course, so my yarn bins will fit under it, too!). Well, I immediately called my pain doc and he said to come in right away (the 2nd time since Friday!) and he examined my leg, seems to okay other than a bad sprain....he increased my pump (very small doses of pain meds thru a special pump) and gave me a bolus (larger dose of pain meds over a short period of time) and he then ordered that I remain in bed until I see him for my regular visit next Monday.

Since I think so much of you all, i thought that I should keep you posted.
AND
I wanted you to see this (http://cjcphoto.com/can/), please take a moment to read and watch it....and here I am being all "Poor me, I hurt real bad, poor, poor me" :violin: I'll see if I can just avoid all that nonsense!

Popping in quickly one last time! I miss ya'll SO MUCH! I promised my hubby that I will stay in bed 24/7 as the doc said. Lonnie was upset with me because I have been getting up too much to check in here (reading over posts briefly, but not commenting) which goes against doc's orders, even though I was trying to rationalize that it was only for a moment each time...still, it's wrong!
I can't help myself....I miss ya'll so much! It's like I told KK, ya'll are my only daily outlet with people (well, other than the few I chat with on phone...but they aren't knitters!

The Swing
by Robert Louis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside--

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown--
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

It is my understanding that Mr. Stevenson was bedridden as a child, polio I think.
This one has always touched me deeply. I memorized it at eight, and have always thought the simple joy contained in just these few words ~wonderous.

Dear Rebecca~
In the short time I have known you, I have been impressed with your sweet spirit of joy. Rare to see, in a day and age of 'me' you exemplify selflessness. Thank you for sharing with us your trials.
May our Lord make His face to shine on you, and may His peace in all things touch you this day.

I was so very surprised yesterday when the UPS man arrived to drop off Lonnie's newest Ipod AND a wonderful SURPRISE (http://knitpicks.com/Projects/itemid_50356220/projects_display) from one of my best buds, Amy (horve1) for ME!. She knew that I had said that I wanted these patterns to try my hand at actually knitting lace patterns with lace wt yarn and....she was so nice as to send them to me to cheer me up while I've been down, both physically and emotionally! How sweet! THANKS, AMY! They did just the trick, too...lifted my spirits very quickly, too...... because of your kindness in thinking of me!
Thanks, also, guys, for your kind emails and cards and pm's and your prayers...ya'll are a great group of people and I miss you all terribly!
FYI, for those of you who have asked, we do plan on getting a laptop after the 1st of the year....then, when next the doc puts me in bed I will stay in touch with all of you, my WONDERFUL knitty friends :muah: :muah:

It's like the saying goes, "You don't know what you have until it's gone!" That is so very true!

I have thought about you everyday hoping each day will be better for you. I pray for your recovery. Living in pain and being in bed is horrible. I have been there so i can relate to you.

My chemo and radiation are over for now. I am back in Michigan waiting my surgery in Boston on the 11th of Dec. After that i have 6 more months of chemo.

Continue to rest so you can feel better soon! I will continue to pray for you and for God's healing hand to be upon!
