While waiting on Valentine Lady to call me on Monday April 14, 2014 in my dialysis treatment. VL didn't call. I left a VM on her phone and didn't get a return call that night or anytime the next day. I decided to call her on Tues at about 2pm PDT and got an answer.

She told me that she had been taken to the hospital because her shoulder popped out of the socket on her right arm due to her arthritis. And then the shoulder popped again and produced a bone chip. At the ER they had to go in and remove the chip. She finally got home to her assisted living place long about 3 AM CDT. When I called her at 4pm CDT she had just awakened and was ready to talk a bit. VL gave me permission to post this. so y'all would know why she was not on DC or AC recently.

I was able to talk for a longer time to her at our regular time of 9pm CDT/7pm PDT. She finally started getting sleepy again after an hour of talking due to taking another pain pill.

When she is feeling better and can use her computer she will be able to answer any expressions of concern and love you wish to post here. But it looks like that may be a few days. Should you wish to go through me, I can tell her on our evening chats.

God's richest blessings to all y'all

Have been talking to her recently and she said her therapy is going great!

She said her Dr said that she should be back to her assisted living facility by May 30th. She is pushing for that. So she'll be back online soon!

Today (04/29) at about 12 pm PDT VL called me to let me know that her transfer to a rehab facility was imminent. I haven't heard from her since then. I had expected her to call at the usual 7 pm but no such luck.

If her shoulder pain is all that is keeping her from using her computer, maybe she could get Dragon ssoftware that lets you type by talking.

After a day of being out of contact with VL, she called me tonight and we talked for a bit. Her voice was very hoarse and talking was painful to her. She slept the whole day after her surgery and woke up about midnight on 4/24. She is on morphene and percoset and has no pain so far.

Further developments:
Over the Easter holiday the surgeons decided that they would do the surgery they had been putting off. She went under the knife this morning. So prayers for her safe and speedy recovery are welcome. I had a brief prayer with her last night before we hung up. I don't know when I'll hear next trom her as she says she'd taken 17 hrs after one surgery to recover from the anesthetic. So I am not to worry if she doesn't call me right away. Perhaps I won't worry all that much until she doesn't call me sometime on Thurs 4/24.

Thank you MewElla

currently we've been out of touch for about 3 days and I am getting concerned. When we do connect again I will let her know. Will prolly read all your prayers and good thoughts sent her way!

Howdy everyone!
I will convey your prayers and kind thoughts to Valentine Lady when next we speak.

UNFORTUNATELY there's been a new development in her condition. I received a brief call from her telling me that her shoulder has popped out again and will need surgery and a period of rehab before she can get back to her computer. So unfortunately she will be AWOL for a while longer.

Thanks again for your prayers and kind thoughts.

Dearest VL , I know the pain you have been having was terrible and annoying. I have a right torn " Rotator Cuff" and because I am paralyzed on the left side it is inoperable and the only relief I get is random " Cortisone" shots . I am glad to hear that you have gotten the relief that you needed.

Greetings to you VL, So sorry to hear about your shoulder. I can understand the pain and the complaining of that shoulder hurting! Please listen to your Doctor, its a matter of using that shoulder in the future. So you just keep it iced down and take your pain medicines. My hope is that you are not in pain, please take good care of yourself. I'll keep you in my prayers.
