An Unexpected Trip

I have missed my blogging friends and dear readers this week, but an unexpected trip to the hospital has kept me out of commission! I had an almost fatal reaction to some back pain meds. Luckily, a three day stay in our local hospital kept me out of danger. I returned home yesterday weak, but in good spirits! Thanks to all my friends and family for your prayers!
Look for “On The Menu”  Sunday evening. Until then, I am taking it easy and getting my strength back.
I wish everyone a very happy Memorial Day.
I am so grateful for our brave heros who serve our great country and for the one’s who have given the ultimate sacrifice so we can all be free. God bless you and your families! You are our true national treasures!

    I was wondering why you were MIA. I thought maybe you got wrapped up in getting SG ready for the holiday. So sorry to hear you were doing so bad. Glad to hear that you are feeling and doing a bit better. Take it easy and get your rest!

    Wow! That must have been some scare. I’m so glad that you are OK. Do take it easy. Blogging will be here. Actually with all of the Blogger issues this week, it was a good week to miss.

    I was definitely missing your posts, but certainly am sorry to hear the reason. Wowzers, Yvonne! Thank goodness someone knew exactly what to do and I am so happy you are recovering. I know you gave your family a huge scare.
    Don’t worry about blogging. Just get well. We should all pray for you and all of our military and their families. Sending many good good vibrations and much love, my friend.

    I’m praying for a quick recovery for you, Yvonne. That must have been quite a scare. And I’m joining you in prayers for our brave service men and woman who give so much to keep us secure and safe.

    I think you’ve been busy with your kitchen and all the other things you do … so maybe you can rest, rest, rest this weekend! Hope you are completely well soon, and the back as well.

    Would you mind posting the name of the medication you were taking. It may save someone from having the same problems you had.

  13. says

    Good Grief, Yvonne!! That had to be very scary, Hon! I am SO glad you’re okay now. Whew!

    I thought that perhaps you were one of the thousands of us who couldn’t sign into our blogs this week. Blogger is STILL having issues, esp. with those who use FireFox brousers. I haven’t been able to comment or post or access my blog for over a week!

    Gentle {{{HUGS}}} to you, Sweet Lady. Take it easy & make sure you’re fully recovered. Will be keeping you close in thoughts & prayers.

    Yvonne, I’m so sorry you had such a scary thing happen to you, and I’m glad you are alright. Allergic reactions to medications can be very dangerous! I hope you are resting and that you will be 100% in no time.


  15. says

    I’m so sorry for what you’ve been through. I am glad you are now ok and hope that you are recovering well.

    I made your Green Goddess dressing tonight. It was sooooo good. Thank you for sharing that recipe.

    Rest and relax!

    Yvonne, I’ve missed your posts the last few days & had actually started to get a little concerned…..was hoping you were just busy! Isn’t it funny how we can get concerned about blogger friends several miles away that we’ve never even met? I’m so glad you’re doing better. I’ll continue to pray for a quick & complete recovery for you! God bless. Shae

    Yvonne, I hope you are feeling a lot better. I wondered where you were – no beautiful table for us this week!!! I bet you picked up some great tablescaping ideas from your hospital meal tray!!

  18. says

    I’m popping over from Savvy Southern Style, saw your blog on the sidebar.
    I’m glad that you are doing well.
    Looking forward to checking out your blog!

    I am your newest follower!

    That is terrible, Y! I am so glad you are ok, but what a terrible experience for you to go through. I will keep you in my prayers…rest up!

    Dear Yvonne,
    SO glad you are back home and recovering. You know you were on my mind this week and I prayed for you. you, the Lord know everytrhign dosen’t He? You take care and concentrate on getting well my friend.
    I’ll join you in prayers of safety for our brave men and women.

    Hi Yvonne!
    I am so glad you came through that okay! I will keep you in my prayers for continued health and regaining of strength. God bless you and may you feel His healing presence ♥ Maria

    Yikes! Meds are not something to take lightly. My hubby developed an ulcer when taking pain meds after surgery a few years ago. Now he has to be real careful what he takes. So glad to hear you are doing better. Take care of yourself and take however much time you need to recover. In another words, milk it for all it’s worth. 😉 Sending up prayers for you!

  23. says

    Oh no!!! I’m so glad you’re ok! That’s really scary to have a reaction to meds like that enough to put you in the hospital…Glad your home and hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend!

  24. says

    How scary for you! I am so glad you are home and doing well, Yvonne. Take good care of yourself. We missed you. Blogging wouldn’t be the same without your talented touch!
    Lots of love and prayers,

  25. says

    Oh my goodness…I am so sorry! I had a feeling something was wrong! I certainly will be praying for you! Your blog continues to bless me and I think God is using your gifts to bless others! So, I am grateful He took care of you! Hope your weekend is good!!!!

  26. says

    I praise God for the blessing of your renewed health/great doctors to take care of you in the hospital! We surely missed you!

    The world would have been a MUCH, MUCH, MUCH sadder place without you, so we’re glad you’re “up and at ’em”!

    MANY blessings to you,
    Lana In Italy

    Hi Yvonne…

    I was just stopping by to see your Memorial Day post when I read this. Ohhh my goodness…to have such a bad reaction to medication is soooo scary! Thank the Lord for His protection and healing power! I do hope that you are feeling much better and back to normal by now, sweet friend!

    Happy Memorial Day and God Bless America!!!

    Love ya,

    Yvonne, I think my trip home kept me from reading about your trip. So sorry that happened to you. But glad you’re better. That can be scary. Take it easy and don’t over do things. xxx
