Sorry for being gone for so long.
My last post I was so thrilled than I had made my first year with Wealthy Affiliate, I wrote that post from my hospital bed but I was so exhausted, I didn't couldn't get into WA again. After I had my knee surgery, the orthopedic surgeon put me on some very hefty pain medicine which caused much more serious problems. I developed a blockage in my intestines and after a few days the blockage could hold on no longer, so my intestines exploded. I was very sick, my doctor said only 2% of patients as sick as I was and the extent of the injuries make it throuh and if they do make it I would be severely ill for the rest of my life. My surgeon said he honestly did not expect me to live, but he found out I'm harder a fighter to live than he was prepared for. So, I was in the hospital for nearly a month, but I'm happy it is over. I got home last night and here I am online today.
I have to wear an ostomy bag for 6 months and I get outside stitches taken out in a week, But at least I'm alive and able to tell people to make sure all your insides work well while on heavy-duty pain meds for extende periods of time,
