Sending good thoughts, I really hope this all clears up for you soon.

Whenever you are cleared to do so I think you deserve a nice long vacation.

Thoughts, prayers, pixie dust and a happy dance to help your dad!!!!!!

Hey Melissa, I hope you are maybe feeling a little bit better today ? I was just enjoying your amazing drawing, lucky I clicked on your link, I remember when I first saw it and it's so so very brilliant still !

I agree you should when you can have yourself a nice long Disney vacation ! A cruise perhaps? I've never cruised but it does sound lovely!

Another DISer sending you positive thoughts and pixie dust.

The road we each travel have peaks and valleys any many twists and turns - just like any good Disney Roller Coaster ride.

Here's hoping that the road turns to a calmer part of the story.

Hi Melissa,

Hoping you're feeling a bit better today. I'm sending you more positive thoughts & pixie dust from out West (and we have some pretty strong pixie dust out here).

I just wanted to say thank you again for everyone's support. It has truly meant a lot.

This past week has been a whirl wind. I was admitted to the hospital Wednesday night. Thursday morning I had a temporary catheter placed in my neck to start dialysis that afternoon. Friday I had a "permanent" catheter placed in my stomach for home dialysis. I was released from the hospital on Saturday.

Sick and exhausted I started dialysis and training for home dialysis this past Monday. This will last for the next 3 weeks.

The nightmare I was hoping wouldn't happen yet, came very quickly. I really haven't had a chance to catch my breathe. I am so exhausted and all I do is sleep. I know this will get better as the surgery site heals and the dialysis does what is it suppose to do.

Thank you so much for your support. It has been very helpful and it will help me as I begin the next and new chapter in my life.

Melissa -- I know this isn't the news you wanted. To take the glass half full side I have found that once the doctors knew what was wrong with me we could move forward. I hope that know that you know you will be able to stop some of the tests and minimize some of the stress of the unknown.

Please know you have many of us who are supporting you, who are sending you good thoughts and pixie dust, and offering prayers. We are hear to support you if you need to vent and because we are not on the "front lines" we are not judgmental.

Stay strong. Hold you head high - it will help you to breathe. And set a goal. I always like to have a Disney related goal to look forward to.

Carol

Melissa,
I am so sorry to hear of this. We were out of town back when you first started posting this so I missed it.

You probably don't remember, but I met you at the VA GKTW meet, which you worked so hard on, and you were so very kind to my DD and me.

I live near you and would be happy to help you in any way I can. Please PM me if there is anything I can do.

I am sending prayers and pixie dust for you and your DH.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.
