Our Dear Ellen

Posted by Youngatheart.7.4.12 Nov 29, 2015

Her recovery is more painful than even she imagined (and she is used to dealing with pain).  If she says it's awful, it must be unbearable.  On the only bright side, she said her breathing IS better.

She could use our continued prayers!

Nancy

Go hand in hand.  So does drinking and smoking.  Please don't chance it! 

Nancy

I'm cleaning my upstairs and have been at it for awhile.  I  come downstairs to replenish a cleaning supply when WHAM - I want a cigarette!    See, it's time to take a break - I am where I used to smoke.  I suppose I haven't cleaned my upstairs (with all my surgeries and recoveries) that many times since I quit....so my auto response is obviously still turned on.

It's OK - I made a decision that I would never, ever smoke another cigarette and I will continue to honor it.  See - it IS a decision!! 

I came to the site, and am enjoying a cold Pepsi over crushed ice.  This is my new break reward since I don't drink soda anymore.

Just so you know - we will ALWAYS be addicts.  Triggers may come upon us - it's how we deal with them that's important!

Alcohol and smoking go hand in hand.

If you are quitting, don't take the chance and drink - please!

Heard from ELLEN!

Posted by Youngatheart.7.4.12 Nov 19, 2015

Great news!  She is being discharged this morning! "A bit rough" she says, but she is anxious to get home.  Might be awhile before she;s "back" she added.

She sends her love to all!

Nancy

They  removed one chest tube and may remove the other one this afternoon.  She may be able to go home today and if not, probably tomorrow.

Not said is that she must be doing GREAt to be making such good progress!

Ellen Update

Posted by Youngatheart.7.4.12 Nov 17, 2015

I think I will only get an update from Carson if I ask and I don't want to bug her.  So - we'll probably only get one a day. 

As of this morning she is still in ICU (expected), in good spirits, but in pain (also expected),

I'll let you know more when I do.  Keep the prayers coming!

Update on Ellen

Posted by Youngatheart.7.4.12 Nov 16, 2015

Ellen is out of surgery.  The doctor said it went well.and that they found  Ellen was a good candidate for the surgery.   She said it would take a couple of months before they will know how much improvement she will see.  The doctor said everything looks really good.

I'll keep everyone updated as I hear anything.  Keep praying.  These next few days, I understand, are going to be difficult for her.

ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL ABOARD!!!!!!!!!Nancy

When I was a smoker and waiting for someone, they would always show up right when I lit a cigarette.

What I've learned since I quit is if you drink too much you may lose "it."  Please don't chance it!

Nancy

Please step up and let us thank you, each and every one!
