    So happy to hear you are home. It will be so much more comfortable for you there and you can heal. If you are in the area of Dumfries, Nokesville, Woodbridge and want to do lunch just let me know!

    it is so great of everyone to offer to help alittlegray and her daughter. Hopefully she will be able to stay out of the hospital until time for her appointments at Johns Hopkins. And hopefully some of you will be able to have lunch with her when she goes back for tests, if everyone has time.

    Remember if you have a horse which needs riding in the northern VA/DC area, Alittlegray's daughter is a very good rider and needs a ride.

    I am hanging in there. I don't have an appt until 2.28, that is the soonest the specialist can see me. Wish the wait wasn't so long. But at least my name is on the books. I am well enough at the moment and that is what matters. Thanks for asking

    Wow, that is a long wait. But so true, at least you feel tolerably well while you wait. Hope your appt goes well.

    Well...looks like we are batting for 13. They admitted me to Stafford late Monday night/early Tues morning. No idea how long I will be stuck here, but I had two good weeks at home so I am happy about that anyway.

    No! And so this is, 3x or 4x so far this month? Including the time you were still in hospital for New Year's Day? I'm losing count although I'm sure you remember every single long minute of being hospitalized.

    Those doctors need to get you out of the hospital and well for the rest of your life. At least you did get the 2 weeks at hone, in which I hope that you were not in pain and did get out a little. Despite the weather you've had recently.

    Will keep in touch with you. And give you a call in hospital this week. I hope that people up there can visit you if you feel up to it. We cannot send you food or fruit baskets because of your illness, but do tell us if you need anything. Like sheepskin to keep from getting bed sores.

    I was at Mary Wash over new years, and then at Johns Hopkins right after that. I was lucky to get a couple good weeks at home after that, but yes this admission to Stafford Hospital is the third time in Jan. I am hoping because I caught it earlier this time it will shorten the amount of time it takes to be back on solids and ready to go home.
    I cannot have food baskets of perishables, it would have to last long enough to come home with me. But really, I don't expect people to be sending me stuff. Really it is nice knowing someone knows where I am, does that make sense? My family other than dh and kids is all on the west coast and so it is lonely here - I guess I feel comforted that people know I am here for some reason. Maybe I am a little bizarre. I really appreciate the jingles. You have no idea how much.

    Well, maybe if some warmbloods, not people, sent you something? We have to think. We do have some bute, which you do need for the pain. We cannot think of anything but painkillers to send. Maybe some flowers will come your way.

    Oh no, so your husband and 2 kids are on the West Coast enjoying themselves while you get poked and prodded with needles? Not fair!

    Get well soon. You won the coth "most times hospitalized" for 2012 so you do NOT need to set a new record this year!

    Bute might do it! Lol....all my family except DH and kids are on the west coast. Dh takes vre to the pentagon so he leaves at oh dark thirty and gets home late, so he brings the kids to see me for a tiny bit of time in the evening. I feel bad for making him come here after spending all day commuting and working. Maybe I need to see a good vet next time? Warmbloods might have the right idea

    Oh no! I am so sorry you are admitted again. I know that feeling. If you need anything just let me know. I'm close, more than happy to help, and I know how sucky the situation is. One of my worst attacks was when my hubby was overseas. Driving to the hospital with a Lipase of over 5500....Not fun.

    I was just up at Hopkins....again....with talk of them taking the little devil out.

    If you want company I'd be happy to swing by!!!

    Feel better, stay ahead of the pain and let me know if you need anything!!!!!!!

    We have the best vet ever, alittlegray. And he has his own surgery. Although you might get a good stall instead of a room. We could maybe send him up to you.

    We just think that your vets are not as good as our vet. Although his stallside manner leaves something to be desired. He treats us like animals. But surgeons always think of their patients as problems to be solved. At least he's not like Dr. House.

    Oh, so sorry - not again! Sad to hear that everything still isn't resolved at JH. Wishing you very well and hoping that the reason you're in there so many times this month, is because that will take care of your yearly quota!! Please take care, and may they know instantly what to do for you when the appt comes.

    I am so sorry to hear this! I was hoping things were getting much better. PM or call me when you come to Baltimore - I'd love to come hang out with you and bring you something tasty that your doctor will allow

    I could also sneak my big fluffy polydactyl cat in and let him entertain you!

    Hope you get out for the weekend so you can be hone with your family.

    And I hope that Johns Hopkins can figure out how to help you.

    You did such great work with our horse Always Funny.

    Darn it! Again? You must be so tired of this!!!

    Timely and Star are waiting for your daughter to get out here! Although with this whacko weather, I've only ridden one lesson and went out hunting once in 3 weeks myself!

    Feel better soon, and if you need any more horse magazines, I just found another pile in the garage. We are trying to lighten up the load as much as we can before we PCS to Ft. Benning in July-- so it would help ME out to bring them to you. :-)
