Thank You My Dear Bloggy Friends

Hello dear friends~ I thought I would update you on what has been going on in my life since my last blog post.

But before I do that, I want to thank you all for your lovely comments and well wishes. You have touched my heart and I am very blessed to call you my friends!

Last weekend, I took a little ride in the ambulance to the ER. As some of you know, I have been having excruciating pain in my lower back for several weeks now and by the end of last week, I could not walk.

They suspect I have a herniated disk and I had an MRI this past week. Still waiting for the results and meanwhile, I am taking very potent meds for the pain. These meds are helping control the pain but they also make me very sleepy. So I've been resting a lot these days. Hubby took a couple days off work to be my 'nurse' and he also got me a walker so I can get around a little better now.

For my tea party friends, I have a tea party post already to go on Monday morning which I have been working on most of the week.

Thank you all for your love and your prayers. You all mean so much to me. Have a wonderful weekend and God bless!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  17. Sandi, I am so sorry to hear about your painful back. I know something about that but not to your extent. It can't be fun and I wish for you to get better soon. Take care and don't overdo, or worry about extra things. They will all take care of themselves and it is only important that you get to feeling better..Take care, Judy

  18. What a terrible thing to be going through! I'm sending you all good thoughts for a quick recovery.

  19. I do hope you will be fully recovered very soon. Keep us 'posted'! Chel

  20. Dear Sandi,
    I am so sorry to hear of your back problems. I hope for good results, no pain and only comfort.
    Love the pink teacup tower!
    Feel well and peaceful, Ruthie

  21. Hello Sandi
    Back issues like that are definitely not fun and it's reassuring to hear you have taken measures and are receiving proper treatment. Bless your hubby for nursing you too.
    I took the opportunity to pass on a tea post as I have come down with a nasty cold for the 3rd time in 2 months. I'll work on something myself to join you again next week.
    Take care,

  22. Oh my dear Sandi,

    My heart goes out to you and prayers are with you! A herniated disk is excruciatingly painful.

    Do continue to take it easy and to recover, be comforted and heal by the grace of God. It is surely no fun being in pain... Indeed if you are feeling up to doing so dear lady, then I'll happily see you Monday Sandi as well along with your other very dear blog friends.

    I adore you charmingly pretty pink teacup tower, artistry. So lovely as always.

    Hugs, blessings and cheers from Wanda Lee

  23. Hi Sandi,
    I hope you feel better soon-back pain would be no fun!

  31. Sandi,I know exactly how you are feeling. I have had the very same thing,and trust me it does heal. Our bodies are amazing how they can heal themselves. I had a cortisone epidural which assisted in the healing process and pain. While I did have nerve damage in my leg and foot. It is no problem at all now. Hope you will feel better soon. x

  32. Sandi I am so sorry you are in such pain. I do hope you recover quickly. Valerie

  33. I am so sorry to hear about your pain. I hope you recover quickly. I have enjoyed your tea party's. Thank you.

  34. Oh no, I am so sorry. Pain can just be exhausting, rest is what you need. I hope you get to feeling better soon. Will be thinking of you.

  35. Oh Dear, Sandi I just read, hope you are feeling much better and on the mend. I've been so busy with all these lovely grandbabies I haven't been up to date on my blog friends. We left yesterday and are heading back to the Island, 7 days to go. I can only hope your pain eases up soon and you are back to your everyday life. Hugs,

  36. OHMYGOSH Sandi I am sorry to hear about your troubles. See this is what happens when I do not spend enough time visiting blogs. I am sending healing thoughts your way along with a warm hug. Take care my friend. Jen

  37. Hi Sandi,
    I'm so sorry to hear that you are having problems with your back. I hope that you recover soon and return to your chiper self.

    I'll be thinking of you.


  38. Hi Sandi, I was going to write and ask how you were doing, you had been sick with a cold, but I didn't know about your back. I've been there, and I'm sorry for the pain you are experiencing. Don't let it get you down, I know it can. God is watching over you, you're going to be fine.
    Jeannie and Linda
