So woke up this morning at normal time, opened my Facebook page to get started. Well, we knew last night that my grandmom's time on earth was coming to an end, and dad said he would call me. But he fell asleep. So went to go check and what a wonderful way to find out your only grandmother has died. It's been a hell of a morning already and I just want to go back to bed already.

Oh Amanda.. My heart breaks for you. I am so very sorry to hear about your Grandmother's passing. I hope that you can look to the wonderful and happy memories that you have with her and find peace in looking back on them. I am sending you love and my deepest condolences. I know it's not easier but she's with God and will forever be watching over you. I pray that you find peace in your heart and soul during this difficult time. Sending {{{Hugs}}} your way.💕🙏🏻🌻😢

Alwayz, I think I just need to go back to bed at this point. Will try again later on in the day.

Oh honey I'm sorry. You take care of yourself today. Don't worry about us, let us worry about you. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

And then, it appears that I've got the beginnings of a surgical wound infection. Emergency appointment with gyn again tomorrow afternoon. Not having a good day at all!!!!!!!!!! If I spike a fever, I have instructions to go to the ER.

Sorry to hear. Thinking of you all x

Keep a close eye on it. We don't need you back in the hospital or anything.

Cearea, yes that's the plan for the night. It's just really irritating.

I can only imagine. Never had an abscess, but I can emphasize. I have porphyria which causes blistering of the skin if I'm exposed to the sun, sometimes even when I'm not in the sun.

Cearea, this isn't actually an abscess per se. This is more like severe redness on my suture line. Not made worse or better by wearing pants. Just there. And makes the incision tender as well.

Ah, ok. I guess that's the only luck I ever had. I never had a problem with any surgical site. I have 29 surgical sites. I'm sure my luck will run out one day. Just keep an eye on it. If u even get a low grade fever, get to the ER or Dr.

I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon thankfully. Too bad they wouldn't call me something in.

Nov 02, 2015 4:48 PM

Good. I hope there isn't anything there, but I'm glad you are going to get it looked at soon.

Nov 02, 2015 7:52 PM

Sorry for your loss. To God we belong to Him we return. Please take care.

Nov 02, 2015 9:32 PM

Oh Amanda, I am so sorry for your loss! I'm sure that was quite a shock. Take care of yourself, and allow yourself to grieve and cry. Grandmother's are special. Treasure your wonderful memories. (((Hugs))) & prayers for you and your whole family! 💐🙏🌼
