Well, I haven't been able to post very much for the past month or so because I have been ill. It seems that my liver is leaking bile into my body because the valve leading to the gallbladder is full of "sludge" (technical term). So after more than a month of intense itching and nauseousness I have surgery in Vermont Friday afternoon to put in a stent I guess to widen the valve so it can be flushed out. Phew. Finally. And Gary is bringing me and one of my wonderful sisters is an RN and will meet us in Burlington, VT and stay with us throughout the surgery and after. This is done on an outpatient basis so we will get a motel room and spend the night before driving the three hours back to Potsdam. All I can say is it can't come soon enough.

  1. I'm so sorry you've been feeling unwell for so long. I hope the procedure goes smoothly and you're back to good in no time at all. I'll be thinking of you as I'm sure all of the EPE team will be :)

    Lots of love to you!

  2. Oh I am so sorry you're feeling poorly. Fingers crossed the surgery will be quick, painless and bring your relief.

    I'll be thinking of your Friday. Hugs, Sybille

  3. I'm sorry to hear you were so uncomfortable (to say the least), but I am glad that they know what is wrong and that it can be corrected.

    I will continue to send blessings to you and your family.

  4. HI, Cait.
    Glad to know that you are on your way to fixing the problem and feeling better. My thoughts will be with you for your surgery.

  5. Cait,
    I'm so sorry that you haven't been feeling well. I'll pray that your surgery goes well. Feel better :)


  6. Cait,
    So sorry to hear about your health and all your struggles. Sending prayers your way for a successful surgery and quick recovery. Will keep my eye on your blog to see how you are doing.

  7. Cait... checked in the EPE thread and saw your latest news. Hope you are resting easier these days and I hope you hear soon on the latest news, post-surgery. Remember that we are all thinking of you and sending strength, blessing, peace, and health your way! Oh, and definitely hugs too!


  8. That sounds like a bad combination, nauseous and itching! I hope you feel well soon, and get back to weaving
