If it’s not one thing…

2008 June 30
by Julie Clawson

So I feel like I need to explain why I’ve disappeared from the online world and haven’t returned anyone’s emails in basically forever…  Just as I was beginning to feel somewhat normal again after Aidan’s birth, I developed intense pain in my left leg.  Apparently I developed a blood clot in my leg and it passed into my lungs.  So I was back in the hospital last week, on all types of medications, and feeling like complete crap.  I can’t breastfeed Aidan, I can’t stand on my leg, and I am just plain sick of being miserable (and not a little freaked out at being diagnosed with a life threatening issue).  I should have expected something like this to happen with this “if it can go wrong it will” pregnancy,  but good grief.

So that’s me for now.  Just thought I’d let you know.

    Hey Julie,
    I’m so sorry to hear about this latest awful trial. I’ve been thinking of you often and I pray that this is the last of any health issues you will face for a very long time!

    I am so sorry this has been difficult. I pray that you recover and that things settle into a sense of normalcy soon.

    great heavenly day!

    I don’t even know what to say … words seem so inadequate.

    Know that your extended community is praying for you and your family.

    Hi Julie,
    I discovered your blog last week and simply want to say that if someones gratitude and praise can lift your day a bit, when you are feeling poorly, you have mine. Your ‘Change comes on the Wind’ piece is terrific and I shall share it widely in our Methodist District, here in Lincolnshire, and beyond.
    love and prayers for your journey to wellbeing

    Hi Julie, wow, I thought your health problems would be over once you had Aidan, but evidently not.

    I’m sorry you can’t breastfeed – I expect that must be disappointing.

    I hope the medical treatment you’re receiving will resolve your latest round of health problems – and soon!

    My goodness, this has been an ordeal. In the hospital last week sounds like you’re out of the hospital now, so I hope you are okay. What a time of transitions for you guys. HUGE transitions. Things will settle down I bet.

    You are in my prayers Julie. Peace.

    Aidan is beautiful! Congratulations on his birth. I haven’t read many blogs lately, just read this entry and wanted to say we are holding you in much prayer.
    Much peace and grace,
    Rich and Rose

    Crikey! Glad you’re not dead, Julie.

    Not that you need our permission, but please take all the time you need to rest and heal and enjoy your family.
