I am very sorry for neglecting my blog this week and not having new WORDart. I have spent most of this week with excruciating stomach and back pain.  The worst pain I  have ever experienced — and I have had six kids with no pain meds whatsoever.  Most of my pain free time has been spent sleeping and taking care of my family.   Who knew pain was so exhausting!  After spending half of the night in the ER last night, I now know that I have a “very sick” gallbladder and have to follow up with a surgeon.  This doesn’t exactly fit in with the plans I have been making, but I am tired of feeling sick and being in pain.  I hope to be back to my creative self very soon.   I have a million ideas running through my head and really want to get started on them and share the results with you. 

Thanks for understanding!

Hope you feel better. I had my gall blatter removed years ago. Had 165 gall stones. Ouch!! And this pain is much worse than childbirth!

Oh, Karen! Bless your heart! That is some of the worst pain imaginable! I thought I was having a heart attack! The good news...a very quick recovery time after the surgery! Take care of you and your family!You are such an inspiration with your spirit and your creativity! We'll be here cheering you back to fun crafting times again!! Blessings to you!

Having had gallbladder surgery, I can attest to the fact that you will feel soooo much better with that ugly thing out of you! I will pray for returning health for you. I enjoy your word art so much!

Oh no Karen, I'm so sorry to hear this. Praying for some relief from your pain and a resolution to this gallbladder problem. ~ Abby

Karen, I suffered for 2 1/2 years with gall bladder attacks before I got a proper diagnosis and had mine removed in 1981. I totally agree. It is much worse than child bearing pain.

May the Lord take you safely and easily through your surgery. Rest as much as you can, dear.

Hi Karen:

I'm sorry to hear you've been so ill. May God continue to heal you, even if it is through surgery. I appreciate your WordArt and consider it a ministry.

God bless you and your family.

Oh bless you Karen! I'll definitely be praying for you! I have been there and done that! It is no fun to be in that pain....I remember! Praying that God keeps the pain away until the surgeons remove your gallbladder....but then again, God can heal all things too, so ya never know! :)
Take care!

Karen, I am so sorry your not feeling well. I had gall bladder problems only when I was pregnant. Not fun. Get well soon and I will be praying for you.
