They say in the darkest night

I am writing this on my phone so I wlll be brief.

I was rushed back to hospital Tuesday nite. The good news is my kidneys are getting stronger. The bad news is no one knows what is causing this pain I have on my side.

I've been poked til I'm black and blue and my veins collapsed so I have a Pic line. I have an IV in my foot

I'm on a morphine drip for the pain and a Foley because my legs will not hold me up

And they just moved me to surgery ward which is scaring me shitless.

I keep thinking of a line by Jimmy Webb "they say in iN darkest night there's a light beyond".

Outside my window there is a Christmas tree.

I'm holding on to that light but it's hard. I'm scared.

I'm just going to hold on to that light from the tree and hope I am with my family for Christmas.

Dear Susan,

It is now Sunday and since you posted this on Friday I am wondering how you are feeling. I'm happy to hear that your kidneys are doing better... that certainly is great news!

I hope (as we all do) to hear from you soon to hear that you ARE doing better and that you WILL be home in plenty of time for Christmas...

As always - you're in my thoughts and prayers...

((Many Hugs))
