Just a Quickie…

I spent quite a bit of today at the hospital. Tomorrow will be similar. I’m going in for a different reason, though… The plan is to get a complete diagnosis after a series of tests, but we all know the drill when it comes to this kind of situation.

I’ve been hoping to learn that my gut is just a little sore (yes, I like typing the word “gut”). However, Monday was such a tough day for my tummy that I’m starting to think that my nice hope might not be all that realistic. I was in so much pain that I couldn’t stand straight, lie down comfortably or breathe deeply. Coughing was murder…

Anyhoo, this is supposed to be a quickie, right? So, let me just say it: Blooming Howls will be published on Monday, November 17th… I had wanted to wait for as long as it took for me to be completely available when the book went live. Yet, not even I (in all my narcissistic glory) can be that selfish. You’ve been waiting for too long to read these tales, and the truth is that I’m very excited about reading your reactions to them.

Wish me luck for tomorrow, my Wicked Luvs. I know that whatever comes will be dealt with, but that doesn’t keep my deliciously witchy soul from being kissed by trepidation’s lips. 

This is Poppet; crafted by the hands and love of my Gina. I’m taking him to the hospital with me… for support… and maybe to freak out the nurses a bit. Muahahaha! *cough… It’s not murder anymore!*

    1. Poppet had a wonderful time. He got to ride the bus, a little girl at the hospital wanted to know if "Other little people lived in my purse." LOL! Poppet was sticking out of my purse's pocket.

      About the necklace, when I saw Poppet's colors, I just new he needed a little bell bling from the Wicked Faerie Queen. I think he likes it. ;-D

  7. Hoping for the best! I know how strong you are, but even the strong can weary of carrying such a weight. Keep sharing so that perhaps, those of us that love you can help lighten your load. Sending you and Poppet energy for the day, and you may borrow my best glare in case you have used yours all up! (((HUGS))) <3

    1. I think that reminding ourselves that there will be days when being strong means that we need to admit that there will some days when we just lie down and cry, and that's okay, is one of the biggest blessings. I was just talking to a friend yesterday. She says she is so tired of being sick. I sooo understand the sentiment. We need to give ourselves the opportunity of saying, "This is damn enough!" Then get up and keep on keeping on.

      Knowing that others understand our feelings... is a great gift, my friend. ((♥)))

  10. That sounds awful, stomach pains are the worst and can be very tricky to get to the bottom of. I hope they figure everything out for you and you get some relief.

    Of course bringing a purple haired doll with you can only help. Good decision.

    Feel better!

    1. You are so on point. We are still trying to figure out causation... It gets annoying after a while, because yes, pain in the belly is terribly uncomfortable and debilitating.

      Ha! I thought of you when I saw Poppet's hair! It's very soft, by the way; like the perfect boa. ;-D

  11. Be well Ms Wicked, and travelling with Gina's sweet doll will remind you of all the love and support that you can tap into from the many people who love and want you back smiling, pain free (and publishing!) as soon as those medics do their magic xox

  13. Hope you had good luck with your health issues. I love that poppet! I made a kitty poppet when I had a sick kitten, hoping to give him some good vibes.

  15. Sending your warm sunshiney healthy thoughts, dear Witch. May your gut find a less painful way to communicate with you, and you finally experience some relief. That darling poppet is sure to bring smiles to those around you. May the smile you bring to them be returned a hundredfold.

  17. I hope you got, if not good news, at least some sort of direction for healing. I know you've been referring to constant pain. I think this is the first I hear of where that pain is. Have you researched the ill effects of GMO foods (basically anything in prepared foods that contains corn or corn products, soy or soy products, sugar from sugar beets)? Gut problems are right up there in the list of health problems caused by GMO foods.

    1. The tummy issues are new, so it's an addition to my hip, back and shoulder pain. I've been following GMO updates and research, and doing my best to stay away from this its effects.

    1. I scared at least one!

      And yes, I thought the hip and back pain were horrible... then come the gut. Ouch.
