Hey Everyone, thanks for the love...support...and prayers. Just stopping in to update:
Hubby is still in considerable pain. Been on Dilatdid ? Pretty strong pain med. While it's active, he is able to rest. Saw the Dr. just before coming home - he thinks he may start feeling better from the Antibiotics by sometime tomorrow...which is our hope. May take a few more days beyond that before he would be able to come home.
The other scenario... well, that involves surgery. Don't even want to think about it.
Was supposed to be driving youngest son back to college on Mon / Tues. That's out of the question right now. May ask middle son..yes, the angry at me right now son... if he would make the trip w/ his brother, but right now that's all up in the air.
My hubby gave me the surprise trip of lifetime for my 50th B-day...and we are scheduled to leave on Sat, Sept 7th. Two Weeks. He better get better in a HURRY! If surgery ends up being the only option...the trip is out of the question.
I think he said he bought the 'insurance' on the plane tickets...but the hotels and such I think he said are 'non-refundable.' Let's hope in the worse case scenario, they would let us plan this for a later date and hold a credit or something.
More about that later...when I am sure he's back home and we will be going.
Thanks again, and please continue to keep him lifted in prayer.
I am doing fine, and have had no problems keeping up w/ my water, my way of eating...and he's on the 4th floor...so I take the stairs all day long... not bad for me... terrible for him, but not bad for me!

Just walked in the door from being at the hospital since about 4:pm this afternoon. My husband had an attack of diverticulitis. He is staying, w/ IV antibiotics... and we will have to talk w/ a surgeon in the A.M. He has some kind of a perforation or leak - or something... not sure how this is going to turn out.
Please pray for his healing. And for NO surgery...if at all possible. We have a scheduled trip coming up in two weeks... please let this not be an issue.
I'll come back when I can.. til then...Much Love.

There's a bridge somewhere with my name on it! Keep reading - you'll understand. My kids are not really kids anymore. And finding that 'bridge' between adolescence and an actual 'adult' - well, we are swimming in the deep end of the pool w/out a lifejacket :)
I raised them to be 'independent'. So, really this should be no surprise that they want their independance. But their immaturity that pushes them to INSIST they are adults...insists on lashing out to hurt others to get what they want.
In the end - I don't want my kids to move on into their futures with a feeling that they can't maintain family relationships - because in doing so they think they are not being treated like an 'adult'. But how do you maintain family relationships - respect for each other, etc.. - when one of them is just being 'childlike' in their quest to be treated like a grown up!
I'm not perfect. I've made tons of mistakes as a parent. I have owned them. Expressed them. And apologized for them, where necessary in my life.
We have a significant difference of opinion going on around here regarding one very specific issue. And it's not about whether one person's thinking is 'right' or another's is 'wrong'. (at least not to me). It's about the OVER-REACTIONS, the hurtful criticisms and lashing out - because they didn't get their way.
It's childish. You've hurt me by saying no... so I am going to hurt you back - by throwing a temper tantrum, telling you everything I think you ever did wrong, threatening to move out and 'disengage' from relationships where I am not being respected as an adult !!!
Come On! Really? - I know as a Mom this too shall pass. One day, this will be looked back on and I am sure said 'adult' will feel badly on some level. But at the moment... my heart is so sad for the breakdown of this relationship.
It's tough to have your grown kids move back home - but it's way tougher when you have to tell them their hurtful antics are not welcome in your home - and it's time for them to find their own place.
Didn't see this coming...certainly not over something so ridiculous.

This is the last week of the summer for my youngest son..headed back to college next Monday. It's so great to see your kids happy and eager to move forward in their lives...but it's bittersweet. Last year was hard, this year seems harder. I think over the course of this year he is going to look for an 'Internship' for next summer - and it will likely be 'away from home'. Will this be the last time he officially lives at home? A mother's heart is the only one that can cry tears of sadness and tears of joy at the very same time!
Thinking of taking him shopping today - early - then off to the beach for the afternoon. Gonna get hot around these parts this week...might as well enjoy the beautiful seashore (since we can) - and pretend like we're on vacation!!!
Hope you are all well. I am doing fine on my eating. Minimal exercise still, but amping up the activity by 'walking on the beach' etc... just not a week full of trips to the gym. I did make it there twice..but no real habit to speak of yet.
