So, Lin had surgery yesterday and is hanging in trying to heal. She sends greetings and hopes to be home sometime soon so she can answer all of your caring messages. She'll have some time on her hands to do so since she's gonna be recovering for awhile.

LinnieXX - 9/2/2006 at 05:39 PM
thank you thank you thank you
i'm home and about 3/4 out of the woods...
not sure where i'd be without this place, you people, etc......
i'll copy this from the guestbook....
good lord, what a great setlist at RR last night! i wouldnt have picked it any different! ALOT of my favs in there.
as for me, i find myself saying once again here: The rumors of my demise were only slightly exaggerated.....i am back, and more grateful than ever for the family and friends i have found here that have held my hand through a dark period in my life.
i have a new lease on life thanks to the fine folks at Virtua WJ hospital, and now i'm left to fend for myself with wound care, home Antibiotic infusion for the next month and whatnot. Sure, i'm scared sh!tless.....but i have no choice but to keep one foot in front of the other. i'm a VERY lucky girl because if i didnt get to the ER when i did i wouldnt be typing this today. The viruses and germs out today are pretty damn nasty things, boys and girls.....they still dont know WHAT it was, but it was Staph, and that nasty M.E.R.S.A. type.....(resistant to MOST antibiotics). i was operated on (first for-really-real operation) Weds. to remove an abscess that started in my left armpit and was working its way down to my elbow and up to my heart in a fury.....
i guess what i'm lamenting on today is that we can only really be sure of two things in life, birth and death........we've all already dealt with the former, its the latter that trips us up.....we think we have forever but we dont. my wake up call was this week....i still dont know WHAT the hell i'm supposed to have learned, but i do know that i'm not gonna sweat the small ***** anymore. it all woulda gone away in a heartbeat anyway.
love to all, i will NEVER forget this past tuesday when i was at my all time EVER lowest physcially and emotionally....alone and lonely....one of the volunteers comes in and hands me a stack fifty deep of messages from the Virtua website from my friends here. turned my frown into a smile, and always will. that small effort you all made changed my attitude in a way i can never fully explain, and it brings tears to my eyes. i'm so grateful for all of you! bless you, and you and YOU!
PEOPLE CAN YOU FEEL IT?
i love you all, and i'm glad that i'm able to say it! ELAGRUA, JoLed, THANK YOU for your extra efforts my friends.
johnwott - 9/2/2006 at 09:18 PM
Glad you are on the mend Linnie
Keep up the positive vibe and you'll be back dancing your butt off in no time.
RedRider - 9/3/2006 at 04:46 PM
Glad you are home Linnie. Now to just get you WELL... Healing thoughts & vibes headed your way...

Linnie, so sorry you've been ill but it sounds like you're on your way back to healthy living. I'm glad your surgery was successful and you're now at home. Can I send you some music? It always cures my ills. I'll post a link to my list in a pm. Take care, sista!
LinnieXX - 9/4/2006 at 02:52 PM
pixie i'm good for now, thanks though!
Pat says hi, and wants to know something about HGB? (huh?)
Benjamin - 9/4/2006 at 08:45 PM
Linnie - grrrrrrrrrrreat to see you better off now, good enough to start posting again.
Love ya, girl!

LinnieXX - 9/5/2006 at 08:33 PM
as requested: i'm doing ok today, not great....quite sore from where the incisions are under my left arm, and the IV in my right arm is sore too......since i have a doctors appointment tommorow i'm not too worried...i think i'll be cleared to go back to work this monday.....
turns out that this is "community aquired" MRSA, one of my good friends has it as well (though i havent seen her in a month or so, i doubt if we got it together). she just called and told me her doctor said that this thing is 'running amok' lately.....damn, did anyone else read Stephen King's THE STAND? Hell, i'm glad i'm already on the East Coast.......
all i know when someone told me to 'have a ball' i didnt think they meant a 'ball of antibiotics'.....i have to give myself two IV injections a day, but its not really a big deal...it is where the infection was that is a pain in the a$$ since i cannot lift anything and caused some more trauma trying to move my laundry basket....i guess i should probably just go out and buy more towels for now and worry about washing them some other day!
oh, and to futher ***** (careful what you wish for!) the freaking tape that i have to use for the wound dressing has caused a rash that hurts like hell...so i am trying a whole bunch of different things trying to keep a bandage on an armpit without tape. i can think of better games to play!
the gist of it is that i'm not used to being sick, i hate it, i wish i wasnt....but it is what it is.
peace on you all! thanks for caring, it means more than i can express.....
LinnieXX - 9/5/2006 at 08:40 PM
and in case anyone is wondering and hasnt asked already; i *probably* got this from a shaving cut about two months ago.... dammit if i lived in France i wouldnt HAVE to shave my pitts now, eh?
dutchoneill - 9/5/2006 at 08:50 PM
All my prayers are coming your way to get you over this next part of the healing process
I know you will be back with us all again soon.
LinnieXX - 9/7/2006 at 01:44 PM

you are all my family, and i love each and everyone of you, warts and all!
