    especially in my life. Okay, I had my hysterectomy...it's gone. I thought for some strange reason that I would feel lighter, but It's actually heavier as now I get to cart around this tank of air. I don't even smoke.

    Oh well, at least I made it through and hopefully now things will get better.

    Yes, hopefully things will get much better.

    I missed something. I didn't even know you were going in for surgery. I hope that you are doing well and that things will just continue to improve.

    Nothing ever goes to plan, who needs a plan?

    Dive in and see where the plan failed, and learn to love life anyway.

    Because we are here, fuck plans, we are here, we are here, we are here.

    Apparently I don't have enough oxygen in my blood...but I'm hoping I can do a mythbusters thing and try and take out the cement wall with it in my back yard. :D

    Sometimes it happens, when you've been really ill or have gone through a bodily trauma which any major surgery certainly is, your oxygen count will be low. Generally, unless there is other pathology at work, that will correct itself so in all likelihood the oxygen tank is temporary. My aunt, however, had to find out the hard way via numerous fainting spells and bad falls, including broken bones, that her oxygen was low due to a heart condition that needed to be corrected with a pacemaker. That was a simple surgery and she is feeling 100% better. No more fainting spells.

    So you never know. What sometimes seems like a bad thing is pointing to something else which, when fixed, becomes a good thing.

    Anyhow, glad to have you back Sheila. We've missed you.
