Memories

Jan 18, 2012 - 6 comments

Today for some reason I started going through all my journals, notes, pictures, etc. I deleted some things, moved some things around and lingered to read over notes and journal comments. What struck out at me the most was how many wonderful people touched my life for all these years at medhelp. So many showed such kindness, love, concern and prayers as I went through lifes journies with the ups and downs life offers.

This journal is for all of you. I want to say thank you for blessing my life for so many years, for the prayers, advice and just simple kindness. My life has been touched and changed because of so many of you.

I know I haven't been on much this last year but I haven't forgotten. Many of you have moved on from here, many haven't. I'm not writing this journal because I want anything from anyone. I'm writing it to just simply say "Thank you." I pray God blesses each of you and meets each one of you where you need Him the most.

Thank you for being with me during my son's sickness, my pet's deaths, my own struggles, health and otherwise, my daughter's pregnancy and birth and many more moments in my life. May God show each one of you kindness and favor, just as you have shown me and others. This prayer comes from my heart with all sincerity. I am blessed to have journeyed with so many of you here at medhelp.
Peace and blessings to you all.

April

Oh, this is my favorite journal yet.  It is true that friendships are made here at med help that can influence our life in positive ways.  I'm lucky to count you as one of those people that have touched my life as well.

All the peace and blessing you've wished us, I wish back to you.  

I'll probably be here forever, so you always know where to find me!!!  I'm always here if you need an ear or a cyber hug.

So good to hear from you April and I sure hope all is well in your world!  I think the reason you get so much support in your tougher times is that you have given so much to others.  I may not talk to you as often as I used to, but am still proud to call you my friend.  Your a wonderful lady!

Beautiful journal, April.  I remember in 07 when I first began seeing you around and reading your posts.  I didn't know you at all, but thought what a truly kind person you were (are).  Seems forever ago, the problems your daughter was having.  So much has happened in your family since then.  I happened upon an old post back in 08 by someone else who I participated in.  So many "regulars" back then who are gone now.  Life goes on...♥

Well, April, I've also been guilty of not getting on here much. I got caught up in Facebook and don't even read my regular emails much! But I do thank you for your posts and prayers through all the rough times. You've been a good friend to me also. I've been through cancer again, had surgery last April 30 (2012) to remove a big chunk of the back right side of my tongue. It was enough to change some of my speech - but I'm just thankful to still be here to talk! This was the roughest time, I think; I woke up with a feeding tube in my nose and a trach. I was sent home too soon from the hospital where I had the surgery, spent a HORRIBLE weekend at home trying to trickle a few drops of water down my throat - I kept choking - then spent another week in the hospital here. I finally broke down in the middle of that week and agreed to have a PEG tube put in. I went home and, with the help of a home-health nurse, speech therapist and physical therapist, I gradually recovered and got the PEG tube removed 5 months later, when I could FINALLY eat relatively normally again. It was rough, but with lots of prayers, on my part and lots of others, I got through it...God is so good!
