Surgergy # what now…?

Ooops, sure haven\’t kept you guys v. updated the past few days — sorry! Grr, still having trouble breathing, too. So frustrating. :( Well, I really AM going to try to keep this a short one (riiiiight) since I\’m drifting in and out of consciousness at the moment. Sigh.

  • So I had to have another procedure done with the chest tube, but I believe I\’ll call this one a surgery (#8 or something? yeesh) because it was in the OR and they gave me anesthesia which smelled like pine trees? Kinda sorta? (Ugh, really just need to type and get it over with because when I fall asleep I do odd things like delete half of a sentence. Huh. So please do ignore any crazy typos, \’k?)
  • During the surgery, the doctor just took the old tube out and put a new one in a better spot where it could drain some more (we hope, anyway).
  • Last night got randomly sick at 5am when my nurse came to give me meds. :( So bad! Didn\’t actually throw up the pill though, so that\’s … good? And thennn today I just felt sick the whole time, of course. Like the on-and-off nausea all day. Blah. Did have some lovely visitors, though: The Godmommy & Nunc! :) Yay!
  • Oh man I am following asleep so bad here. So this is the end, I guess! That\’s all the important stuff, I thiiink? Just told my nurse I am having trouble breathing more tonight so I think I\’m gonna get some flushin\’! All right so then see ya around. :)

    Hope to hear that the flushing did the job. Your updates are a daily staple.
    Down here in Mexico we are having some hot summery weather. Global warming? Doors are open, overhead fans are on, and toes are dipping in cool salt water. It’s tranquil enough for God to hear my prayers for your speedy recovery.
    Good thoughts!

    Glad that you’re back in touch…really miss your dailies. Here we are in Lent already…a good time to reflect on the redemptive value of suffering, of which you’ve done more than your share. Lots of prayers for your getting better.

    invocation for restorative justice – rhyannan
    Soul of my soul, the eternal Nature of the Universe
    Spirit of my spirit, the evolving Dance of Relatedness
    And the One embracing All,
    I call upon you, within and without,
    Into the Healing of Restorative Justice.

    Be within and without – that we might ‘die’ to the rigid walls of separation between us,
    Which pain and fear have wrought upon heart and mind,
    Like barred cages and rusting chains;
    That the seemingly impenetrable shells of Autumn’s end -
    Be readied to be broken open, and laid open,
    To the ‘seed’ of Justice hidden within.

    Be within and without – that we might release the fruits of past experience
    To de-compose within the deep rich ground of community;
    Warped and twisted though they might be,
    They took root in a hope of Justice, however misguided,
    And in their flesh, lie the stories of Understanding;
    That the dark night of Winter erase false boundaries
    And in the nourishing transformation of Forgiveness,
    Replenish Hope’s fertile soil.

    Be within and without – that we might be healed by the rain of tears
    - Of wounds grieved, and joy re-dis-covered -
    Binding once more into an life-engendering ocean of Promise.
    That the seminal tendrils of new light, and the fragile but un-scarred sprout,
    Stretch faithfully, from above and below, to touch
    And merge firmly in the unimagined greening of Spring’s Choices.

    Be within and without – that we might ripen – leaf, flower, fruit and future seed -
    Roots intertwined, exploring the depths of the fertile ground,
    Branches laced against Life’s storms, yet breathing deeply of the heavens
    - A Summer’s garden -
    Ploughed by courage, planted in true belief, and weeded through commitment;
    That the fruits of our labours nourish the bonds between us,
    And the winds of change scatter the seeds of our Faithfulness
    Throughout the landscape, beyond our culture’s current horizon.
    And unto the 7th generation.

    Soul of my soul, spirit of my spirit,
    Embrace me with strength, compassion, honour and reverence;
    Dance through me with beauty, passion, humility and mirth;
    That I may lay open the seed within, that I am-
    That my life give fertile ground to the roots of Justice
    And restore the greening balances of Understanding,
    That my choices midwife the laboured sprouting of all those
    Who reach beyond the horizons of separation,
    And cultivated a community which is true to the Divine within All.
    Blessed Be.
