days. So it will be staying in the house for the next week for me. Golly dit they hurt my when putting in the IV. I look like I came back from war. Holes and blue marks all over my arms. My veins kept on popping or falling flat. Yesterday was a nightmare and when the nurse left the ward I just started crying from this terrible pain. 1st time I cry over pain in many years. Love u all a lot.

I am so sorry that you are sick and in such terrible pain. Behave yourself and rest. The most you should do is to tell us how you are doing. I am including you in my prayers. I understand about crying, it is ok. You are so weak that you just can't manage. That is why you need to rest.

So sorry this had to happen anna. IVs can b a bummer, as a nurse myself I never stick more than twice. I get someone I know will get in to do it. Problem is as we get older our veins get more spidery & when u r sick & dehydrated they get even smaller. Do as the Dr. says , rest is the key & meds, drink lots of fluids. Hope you are feeling lots better soon./Lillian

I'm so sorry to hear you were ill. I hope you'll fully recover now that you're home again. No more poking needles in unwilling veins - that must have been very painful for you to cry. Beterschap, Martine.

Hi Martine, Thanks a lot for thinking of me. En ek sien hier ontmoet ek nog 'n Nederlandse vriendin. I correspond to another cute friend from there for a year now. Me in Afr and she in Dutch and we understand each other quite good.

I know it's fairly easy to understand Afrikaans. My newspaper had a series on poetry by a female writer a couple of years back and I loved her poems - alas I've forgotten her name.

Ja Martine dit is maklik om mekaar te verstaan. Thanks again for thinking of me. We quite a few good writers in SA.

I will be praying for you, I have had pneumonia already and I thought that was so horrible until I developed pleurisy one year. Everyone that saw me thought I was going to die. I could barely walk. The DR. wanted to admit me to the hosp. but I refused and did outpatient therapy of IV antibiotics. It was a very long and slow recovery. Stay strong and postive in your faith, it is the only way. Pray for your Dr's to be alert and compassionate and I will too.

Thanks a lot dear. I also had pleurisy once and it was not nice. Here in SA they don't give outpatient IV antibiotics as far as I know. Am actually stay in bed today cause very cold now. Annatjie
