Hi Tim, Dave, Joy and Diane - I have been away from here for awhile but I have been reading and praying for you all by name.

I myself have been quite ill health wise and am facing more colon surgery pending tomorrows test.

As many of you know I have an autonomic dysfunction and all my involuntary muscles are being attacked right now even my typing has been affected so I can't go into details right now.

I just wanted to let you main people of this discussion community I have been thinking and praying for you. Deb.

I'm sure I'm not as bad and I appreciate your thoughts and prayers right now I don't know what wrong with me. I don't if its stress reactions to disability threatening me or if I'm getting really sick! I have painful diareya for the past two days. My skin is raw and I feel dehydrated. I have the shakes and am suffering bad anxiety attacks! I'm getting fearful for my survival as I deal like I'm having a mental breakdown. I'm slipping to pain and suffering so bad I'm a psychotic mess!

Hi again and thanks for the support - It turns out I will need more colon/rectal surgery the test I had yesturday showed or confirmed what we already knew she my doc. just wanted to make sure before she scheduled me.

Now I am waiting for the call back as to when and where as well as what kind of surgery she will be doing. We are praying that a repair can be done and not a colostomy. At this point I don't care what kind just fix me so I can go a little more normally.

Hi it's me again - just got off the phone from my colon surgeon, I will meet with her on Tuesday next week, surgery will be asap and it will be a total colostomy. She said she can't keep repairing me. When she did the 4ft colon removal in 2010 it only brought me a little time. I will keep you posted as to the date. Deb
