you may have wondered about my silence and lack of posting this past week.
whilst in blog land a week isnt much really, to me this past 7 days have seemed like 7 weeks.
sorry no caps i dont have the energy.
i had a bad stomach ache last sunday night the 10th.
i thought it was just a bit of wind, but by 5.30 next morning the pain was so bad i just collapsed.
i tried to get up and fell again.
my hubby was at the other end of the house and is half deaf, but somehow his ears were opened and he came to my assistance and called the ambulance.
i was operated on at 2pm that afternoon .
turns out i had appendicitis which burst .. say no more.
anyone who has experienced that will know what its like.
the antibiotics are rather debilitating and its frustrating when you cant do your art, watch tv or read a book!,
what else is there?
the blessing of friends calling is wonderful, but after the first wave they drop off.
hubby is wonderful but a computer person rather than a chatterer.
this is the first year of my retirement, so i have been used to days full of people and students to teach.
its so quiet its scary.
another thing with an experience like this is its brings you very close to facing death.
though i am a christian and have no fear of death, its always at arms length at least, not in your face.
if hubby had not heard me i may not be writing this.
i am writing this
i was not given over to death
god hasnt finished with me yet
the australian group 'hillsong' recently released a cd called 'cornerstone'
in the song they say
'throught the storm he is lord'
i am so grateful for that.
if anyone has been through this id like to know just when you get out of the doldrums!!!!
dont worry, ill be back posting pretty soon
thanks for listening.
