Why No Posts?

I have been feeling bad for several days and having a tremendous amount of pain in my lower abdomen. I really wanted to be creative and stamp, but everytime I went to my stamp room the pain over took the creativity. So taking the advise of my ER physician husband and my nurse friends, I tried to take it easy and gets lots of rest. Well, last night at about midnight my temperature spiked to 102.7 and I was having tremors. My daughter just happened to be laying with me in bed and felt the bed shaking and immediately called her dad, who was still at work, and she drove me to the hospital. After 8 hours of IV fluids, pain medication and being put through every test imaginable....CAT scan, X-rays, Ultrasounds, blood cultures. It is an infection of an ovarian cyst. I was so scared that it was going to be something worse.

Don't give up, I will be posting something creative very soon!
