The Vanishing

Hey, all. This is Sandi's oldest son, Wallace. You might have been wondering where your author's been for the last week. On Monday evening she was admitted to a hospital with an infection, one that looked to be extremely serious by Wednesday morning. The good news is that — at the moment — things look good, and she's expected home by next Tuesday. She ought to be able to leave the hospital with all the body parts she came in with, too.

Until then, don't expect a lot of activity on this blog. I considered bringing in my laptop and checking to see if the hospital had a wireless connection, but it seemed rude to surf the Internet when the Grim Reaper was hanging around. He's a stickler for etiquette and decorum and I decided it was best to stay on his good side.

I'll let my mother tell you the whole story when she's comes home. Until then, if you wanted to post any comments for her, I'll print them out and see that she gets them.

— Wallace

Wow! I sure hope she gets better really soon.

Thanks for the update Wallace.

Vee said...

Thank you for letting us know, Wallace. I do wonder and worry when we haven't seen a post for a while. Please let your mother know that I'm praying for her and cheering her on to a full and complete recovery. If anyone can give the "GR" a run for his money, I know that she can. Give my fond regards to your dad as well.

Jeni said...

Sandi -I already sent you a message via Lee's blog but I figure one more message telling you to hurry and get well, back home, all in one piece too, and do it as soon as possible. Diverticulitis is a pain in the gut that can also be -in more ways than one -a royal Pain in the A**. Glad you got things fixed though!
Cheers and Peace and Whatever else you can think of but most of all, just plain get well quick wishes coming your way.
Jeni (and Maya and Kurtis too, who are missing your virtual hugs while you're away!)

CatHerder said...

OH NO!!!!! SENDING YOU WELL WISHES...i hope youre in top shape very soon. so sorry youre not feeling well.

Jay said...

Good heavens! I'm so sorry to hear that Sandi's so unwell! Good to hear that she's doing okay now, but please send her my best wishes and tell her I'm thinking of her!

Thanks, Wallace. It must be a very worrying time for you.

♥ bfs~"Mimi" ♥ said...

I had wondered where that lady had run off to! I know if she could have, she'd have picked a far more fun place to go than to the hospital. I truly hope she is on the road to FULL recovery. You make sure that she behaves herself (as if), eats lots of fruit, drinks lots of water, and lets the sun shine in.

Prayers and warm thoughts coming your way Sandi !

Judy ~ My Front Porch said...

So sorry to hear of your illness, Sandi! Wishing you a full recovery...and looking forward to your return.
Blessings,

San said...

Your 'Grim Reaper' comment is so Sandi. Either you got the Attitude honestly in your DNA. Or else, your mother put those words in your mouth. If so, that's a VERY good sign that she's on the mend.

Lib said...

Hi Wallace, Thanks for letting us know about Sandi!
My Love,Prayers and Thought are with you Dear Sandi!
Hope you feel better soon!

Gwendolyn said...

Sandi! How good to know that your infection was not as serious as it could have been.

"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. 'The Lord is my portion,' says my soul,'Therefore I hope in Him!'"

Everything Stops for Tea said...

Hey Sandi,

Make sure you take care of yourself. Sending lots of love and best wishes for a speedy recovery from Liverpool

Lots of Love

Sarah

Gwendolyn said...

Oops - forgot to add the reference so you can look it up.. Lamentations 3:22 & 23! May your spirits be lifted this beautiful Easter season in reflecting on Him!

Stop messing about Sandi and get back on the job!

I've been a bad blog friend lately. Shame on me, but life has been crazy, but in a good way. Anyway, that's the reason I'm late in finding out about this.

Please give your Mom some gentle hugs from me.

Now, Sandi, I know somebody is reading this to you OR you are reading it on your own...in any case...Know that I am praying, praying...PRAYING for you! I hate it when my best supporting blog buddy is not up to her usual self. I've been so MIA lately, that I feel as though I've let many a blog friend down. You sweetness, have always been there for me...so I feel especially guilty about not keeping in better touch.

Please keep us posted, know that WE ALL LOVE YOU!~ me especially...and that you will be in my continued prayers.

Speedy Recovery wishes to you...

Blessings...
Teresa

Merisi said...

Wallace,
thank you so much for being so kind to inform us about the whereabouts of your mother. I am so relieved that she is doing better!

Sandi,
that was so unlike you, sneaking out just as the Easter bunny turns around the corner! Was it the Chipper/Shredder that caused you to run for safety? ;-)

I hope you did get home today and are recuperating in comfort and being spoiled by your sweet husband.

Hugs and best wishes from V.,
merisi

Jules~ said...

Oh good golly, you have been in the hospital. Now I know there are ways to catch up on your rest and get out of chores but really. Just kidding.

I do hope that you are feeling ever so much better now. That was wonderful of your son to let us know the basics of what was up. He sounds like he has that same colorful type of humor that you are blessed with.

Blessings to you today my friend.

Oh wow I am so late here AGAIN I am really sorry Sandi. I should have guessed when my inbox got quiet. I have missed you and I hope you are on the road to recovery. Thinking of you and sending prayers your way. You have a great son there. :)

Just in case Wallace didn't get the time to get to David's, his ode dedicated to you (which reminded me to come on over btw) is -

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Said the surgeon to Sandi, "Evaporation is handy
But our data suggests not to gargle with brandy
We once had a resident who was ever so frisky
That we sent in a SWAT team to get rid of his whiskey"

I think it's pretty good!
Get well soon. ((((Sandi))))
