Where have I been again?? So much happened!
Once again I have taken a huge break. This time, I didn’t have a choice! Sometimes life just happens!
Let me bring you up to speed… 🙂
Dealing with my financial issues over the past few months, it became very clear that I needed to find a new place to live. Although finances were the major reason to make a moving decision, there were many other reasons that were making it seem like the right thing to do.
After quitting my job in May, I soon realized that my new, much lower income wasn’t going to quite cut it. It was possible to do, but was going to be very tight. But I attempted anyways because really… Who wants to move? I know I hate moving.
Obviously it wasn’t working. At this point I realized I was in some sort of denial about it and I needed to really take some action.
Magically a new perfect place came into my life. It all happened so perfectly, it almost seemed too good to be true. A place with the perfect rent, perfect size, perfect location (mostly), perfectly looked after and well-kept. The only downside to this was that it was downtown on the main street in my city. This is a big thing, but something I was absolutely willing to overlook, considering everything else – it was exactly what I needed right now.
So here I am in the last week of September… preparing to move in just over a week. Its not easy to pull something together this fast when you don’t have a big truck! But I made it work, connected with the right people and made everything happen just in time. What amazing people I have in my life. I am forever grateful! 🙂
Now! It is the evening of Oct. 2nd, and I’m all settled in my new place. I have some boxes still to take care of, but that can wait until the next day. I need to just soak up the energy of this new place, and take a well needed rest for the evening – maybe even take a nice bubble bath in my huge new tub!
Oct. 3rd, 7am. I can’t move. I can’t sit up. Am I dreaming? Or is this stomach pain for real? It must be for real because its now 7:30 and I still can’t move. Maybe if I just sleep a little bit more this stomach ache will go away and then I can finally enjoy this new place and get a bit more settled.
1pm. Its worse now. But what can I do? Take some medication and just lay down in hopes that it will all pass soon. Being pessimistic, I continue this for another 24 hours in hopes that it will still pass, but as each hour goes on and I cannot sleep for longer than half and hour, the pain increases immensely. I’m pretty sure now I need to do something about this for real. I need to see a doctor before I literally die.
5pm. Time to go to the hospital. I can barely move. This takes about 45 minutes to actually get from my bed to the hospital. Thank you to an amazing special friend for helping me get there.
Right away I am put on antibiotics through an IV. After going through some blood tests, doctors were pretty sure that it was my appendix. But they couldn’t know for sure until I had an Ultra Sound – this didn’t take place until the following morning. I have to stay in the hospital overnight!?!? I’ve never had to do this before, this is crazy.
Morning ultra sound results confirm appendicitis. Luckily my appendix was still in tact and had not burst. Time for surgery!
I am back in my room after surgery, honestly feeling so much better than I did before. I need to stay another night in the hospital. At this point, I’m not complaining at all. I wish I had one of those beds that sits you up like that! Made the pain so much more bearable.
After getting home from the surgery, I was in much less pain. My appendix was out and it was time to heal. But pain from the surgery had only started and I almost felt more helpless than I did before, but thankfully I felt a lot less pain.
Its been a long month guys! Its funny how I turn to cards for guidance. And when you put things into motion, they REALLY work. But unfortunately, this is distracting me from my card learning! But really, its all the same process. My spirituality is always expanding, whether I use the cards or not. Because I used the cards, and I am taking their advice and putting it into action. I’m still working on the process, even without the cards in front of me. All of the intention from what I got from the card is still there. I’m actually doing it now.
And here we are, all settled up. Ready for the next adventure! I wonder what the cards have in store for me now!? I can’t wait to work on the next big thing in my life.
Much love guys and many blessings! <3
