Back in the clink

Well, I broke the terms of my parole and ran a fever (103.6 to be exact).  So they threw me in the Big House again.  I've been here since Monday night getting antibiotics and trying to keep my temp down.

There's no indication of when I'll be going home.  I've developed a fun new rash in response to one of the antibiotics.  

Also, I'm having some scary trouble with my bowels that isn't responding to the usual treatments.  I'll spare you the gory details, but I'm concerned that there's something seriously wrong.  The doctor told me to wait until around 11 this morning to see if the latest medicine they gave me worked.  It hasn't and in about a half an hour, I'm going to start beating my drum to see a gastroenterologist or somebody who might be able to figure out what the problem is.

I don't want to be here for a long stay, but I also don't want to leave until my bowel situation is cleared up.

So, I am not in a good place right now.

Alrighty, it's time to pull out the big guns. *Kisses each bicep*

I am working some serious energy for you, Amanda. My mom and I are starting a circle today, and won't break it until you are well.

Trust me—-powerful stuff.

My thoughts are ALL MY ENERGY are with you, honey.

Stay strong. I know this is supershitty (pun!) but stay strong and positive. The mind is an incredibly powerful healing tool.

We LOVE YOU!! You have love from all over the world...

You are probably not feeling much better but it is very good to see an update.

Random thoughts of the internet are cheering for you. : )

Nicole said...

Manda, I've got your back, and a prayer circle going for you. Just do your thing and feel the love.

And damn, look at boo pulling out the guns. (Nice guns, girl.)

Manda, hang in there. I hope they fix it soon. Hopes, prayers etc - well, you know... ;-)

Kim said...

Hugs, thoughts and energy sent your way. Can I do anything to help out? Bring you some ginger ale?

So sorry this is such huge suckage for you right now. I'm sending every bit of positive energy and prayer I have your way today. Hope they figure out what's wrong with the latest development TODAY.

I'm so sorry to hear things aren't going well. Along with everyone else I'm sending prayers and positive thoughts to you. Thank you for the updates, I know it can't be easy keeping up with the posting with everything else you have going on. I learned about your situation from Pajiba and I check in on your blog daily to find out how you are doing, I hope it helps to know that you are reaching so many people and touching the lives of people who have never even met you. You have a lot of people pulling for you!

Kathleen said...

Well, fuck! I volunteer to help TK kick cancer's ass. Even if it means standing on the sidelines, making sure it can't crawl away.

"Oh gee, cancer, you had enough? Well...too bad!!!"

*throws cancer back into the path of TK's berserker fury.*

Oh, and I'll be praying for you, too. Wishing you all the best.

Jeremy said...

Oh crap, I'm so sorry Manda. But try to look on the brightside: You're Fucking Alabamapink! If anyone can beat cancer, it's you. We'll all be keeping you in our thoughts, and waiting for you to break out of the big house.

Alabama, I only know you from Pajiba, but I love the spirit you bring to the place. Good energy from Texas.

Alex the Odd said...

I'm coming out of hibernation to say that I sincerely hope this is a minor blip and that you're back out of the big house soon. Otherwise I'm joining TK and boo on an ass kicking spree (I may be small but I pack quite a punch)

Amanda47 said...

Oh Manda Panda,

I'm sorry you're having such a hard go of it! I've followed your progress and I hope you know we're all pulling for you- the ether people and the Pajibians. Get well soon, keep eating posicles and don't worry about keeping this as we know you've got some fightin' to do!

Things will turn out okay, Manda...we're all pulling for you. Seriously, kick that cancer's ass. As long as you think you can do it, you can do it.

I'm sending healing earth energy your way. This won't go unnoticed.
