Update on Lynn

Lynn had a appendix explode about 8 days ago,and did not it until Friday morning due to the appendix's location. The appendix had turned gangrene and also got some of her large and small intestine which also had to be removed. She is recovering at St. Lukes Hospital in Meridian, she is under heavy sedation with pain meds,she looks like she's wired for sound with all the IV's in her. Lynn hopes to be home this Friday, and thanks everybody for their concern.
      thank you all   Vic

I hoipe she has a speedy recovery!

Jann said...

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry to hear about this! Lynn, I will say some quick prayers and I hope you are home and feeling better soon!

Jann said...

PS--My mom volunteers at St. Luke's in Meridian--I will ask her to say some prayers, as well!

Shelly said...

Thanks Vic for the update on Lynn!
I KNOW many of us have been VERY concerned and puzzled about what HAD happened!

I cannot thank you enough for clarifying WHAT she is dealing with. I guess it just makes Prayers and well-wishes a bit more concise!

You must be worried sick about her and you are a dear to let us all know. I know Lynn has a huge following, given her talents AND her kind and thoughtful nature. I would imagine from YOUR perspective it may be a bit unusual to have people that have never actually met her, come to know her a bit and care for her so! But WE DO!

And so, your updating us IS very important,,,because as obscure as it may seem,,,,,,she's part of OUR family and circle of friends as well!

Oh,,,,,Big Hugs Vic, She's a Dear and we're all thinking of her!When time allows let her know how much she's loved and cared about by her blogger friends! (I for one, may Show up in Kuma ONE day to meet you both and the canine contingency!) Or may coerce Lynn to meet me "in the Middle!"

You are ALL on my mind, in my heart and in my prayers!

Oh, please tell Lynn she's in my prayers. My daughter had her appendix burst when she was about 12. It's a very scary thing. Take care and send her our love.
Get better, Lynn.

Christine said...

Oh wow! I'm so glad that she got it taken care of! Lynn, I hope you're feeling better in no time!!!

Sue said...

Vic,

Thank you so much for this update. Poor Lynn! Thank goodness that they caught this in time before it became even more catastrophic.

The same thing happened to my hubby several years ago - his appendix was also not in the normal spot and while he had some discomfort, even after it ruptured, he was not in a lot of pain. He was to leave for Denmark and I insisted he see the doctor first (I had a gut - no pun intended- that something serious was going on).

Very serious indeed. Tell Lynn
that we are all here, love her and to just take her time...she has a bit of a recovery time ahead of her.

xxoo

Vic,
Please let Lynn know we are praying for her and you too. In her profile on the right hand side of her blog page she says she has a wonderful husband. I would have to agree with her, for you to get on here and figure this out and keep us updated, that is a wonderful husband.

OMG!!! How did she not know--no pain? it happened to my niece but she was doubling over with pain on and off for almost a year, they kept sending her home, then the last trip to the er, it had burst! That was awful enough. I can not even imagine. I miss Lynn's posts and her wonderful art. Please pass along my love, healing and comforting vibes, and prayers for a speedy recovery. You have a great gal there! I would love to send here a little something, would you mind emailing me an address?
Gentle hugs for both of you,

Praying hard for a full recovery! I know how she feels, I had my entire large intestine and part of my small removed 19 years ago. It was horrific to say the least. The pain was incredible. Please take good care of her and give her a hug from me. Tell her she has to heal fast cuz I need an "art fix" from her blog every day! LOL
