Hello, Again, My Friends!

Taking a break this morning to send along a 'Hello!' and an update on the goings on around here.

First, Kim. She accidentally pulled
out the feeding tube at the beginning of last week and the ER doctor who attended to her almost took her life! He put in a catheter tube and inflated the little balloon in her intestines! Intestinal strangulation is what happened. He didn't know what he was doing or what he was dealing with and didn't ask for input from any other doctors. After this was taken care of, 3 days later after she had been suffering excruciating pain and any number of other symptoms, her gastroenterologist told her she needed to begin treatment in a specialty pain clinic to try and relieve some of her constant pain. True to form, Kimberli misunderstood what he was saying and thought he was sending her to a pain clinic for pain pill abuse so . . . she stopped taking all of them! It took me over an hour to convince her she wasn't dependent nor was she abusing the pills and needed to take them for her well being. Friday morning she received a call from her primary physician telling her that her kidneys had been in distress since early February and it was now time to address the problem. The doctors felt that they couldn't treat her kidney problems last February because of the heart problems and nutrition problems she was having. You would think they could have given her some warning of what was on the horizon. Things are even worse on the home front (can you believe it?) and she needs all the relationship prayers you can offer. Kim is quite literally at the end of her rope and is making talk about not wanting to 'go on.' After all she has been through, this isn't at all surprising to me; why in the world does she have nothing but bad results in everything?

As I told you in my last post, I am now a designer for a publishing firm. The online site was active for a few months back a ways and it didn't pan out because there seemed to much of the left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing. The new management definitely seems to know what to do and we are looking forward to a very successful custom album site! It is slated to go public on June 15! The Designer's Corner might take a couple more weeks after that to be ready. I really hope I get some support from my followers and I promise to do everything I can to make the online album experience fun and rewarding.

Well, I need to get back to Photoshop and put in some time designing. Take care everyone!
