So sorry it took me so long to get back to you. My life has been so crazy. Thank you so much for the positive words of encouragement. I'm so grateful to you. Thank you for your prayers. I'm just scared all the money we need won't come in, and just about all the fine details. I'm stressed to the max. I hope all is well with you and I thank you for your support.

Please don't be scared, and please don't give up. I know it's difficult when you hurt so bad that the tension level goes through the roof. Sometimes, between the pain and just getting through a day it can be soooo challenging, I know. Jill, try to think of it this way. You've got surgery booked with (possibly) the best adhesion surgeon in the world. It's just a bit over 5 weeks away. Now you made it through all that's gone before, and I know you'll make it through this.
When I feel overwhelmed I try to use some of the relaxation techniques that the other people on the forum have given me. You can check through the archives, but the easiest way to find them is to go over to http://www.bombobeach.com and Jo has all sorts of relaxation techniques listed (I think they are in the 'how to cope' section).
Jill, I will pray for you, and that your surgery is a great success.
Wishing you painfree moments, hours and days.
