    I'm back! Praying for a great 2018!

    So glad 2017 is behind me! What a rough year!
    In January 2017 I got the flu, which progressed to pneumonia and spent some time in the hospital.
    For the pneumonia I had to take 3 different antibiotics, and finally the Levaquin worked.
    Was on Levaquin for 2 weeks, then a few weeks later I tripped on one stair step, ONE step, and tore my Achilles tendon. It as not a complete tear but still very painful! Apparently this can happen after being on Levaquin. MRI's, orthopedic surgeon visits, and then a boot for over 6 months.
    ended up seeing a lung specialist for the pneumonia and persistent asthma symptoms from the pneumonia, and he found out that I had a hiatal hernia and he thought I had aspiration pneumonia. so then, I saw the surgeon who told me, no problem, we can fix that with an outpatient surgery or maybe one night in the hospital. So I scheduled that, well, needless to say there were complications and I spent another whole week in the hospital again! They found out that my hernia was incarcerated and they had to remove part of my stomach and then had to use part of my stomach to fix the hernia. Thankfully I am much better now. So happy this year is over!!
    One benefit is that I lost 25 pounds through this whole ordeal! I definitely DO NOT recommend this weight loss plan!
    To top it off, at a summer volleyball camp, my daughter was injured in volleyball with a dislocated patella and placed in a knee immobilizer for 3 months, missed her freshman year of HS volleyball, but now is recovered and playing again.

    Not much quilting done this year, but so glad to be back in saddle again!!
    Happy Quilting!

    Oh dear and I thought I had a sucky year. Two bouts of bronchitis and a broken wrist. It's good to see your back and on the mend! Happy New Year and good health!

        Yikes. 2018 will just have to be better. Sorry you went through all that. Stay positive. Levaquin put me in the emergency room several years ago. I am severly allergic apparently. And it is one of the best antibiotics out there.

        Stay well! You and family!

            Right there with you, 2017 was not a good year for my family either.
            Praying 2018 is MUCH better for you!

                Good grief, Bernadette. No wonder you are looking forward to the new year. Glad you are doing much better and hoping that 2018 will be a great year for you and your family.

                  I'm glad to see you back! And here I thought I had a sucky year with MM having cancer and all the nursing I have done since spring, then just finding out our youngest has diverticulosis......still dealing with that and she is in another flare up of diverticulitis right now

                  Here's to a healthy year!!

                      Oh my goodness, talk about one thing leading to another, no wonder you said good riddance to 2017! You are not alone though it seems 2017 was pretty bad for a lot of people. Hopefully this will be a much better year for you. Welcome back!
