4 am and no photo

Tuesday, October 30, 2007
It is not like me to be up at 4 am. It is also not like me to do a post without a picture of a peanut but I cannot sleep. I am having severe stomach pain due to a valve that is stuck (illeocecal) in my stomach. This is likely due to me raiding the Halloween candy that I have purchased for the trick or treaters. Apparently (and ironically), peanuts can cause this problem and I have been sneaking peanut M&M's. Anyway it is very painful and has kept me up at night lately and feeling crummy during the day. Please send a prayer or thought this way that it goes away soon. My chiropractor can help but he is in Africa on a mission trip for 3 weeks.


  1. Oh Kim it's 2am and I am up here in LA. If you get this and need anything I am here. Too bad I am on the other side of the country and can't actually do anything to help.

    I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Will pray right now and will call you in the morning.


  2. Hope your feeling better real soon!

  3. I'm sorry you are not feeling well! Hopefully you will be back to yourself soon.


  4. Hope you feel better soon ... I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

  5. awww. I can sneak stuff when it is around too. I am sorry for your discomfort. I remember sneaking too much cheescake a couple of years ago and being up ALL night in pain. ugh!!! I knew better!!!!
    I pray you feel great this morning and can take care of your peanuts.

  6. I just said a prayer for your pain to be relieved. I hope this morning has brought you some relief. Isn't it amazing that something so good (M&Ms)can turn out to be bad?

  7. Kim,

    I sure hope you are feeling better by now. I felt so sad for you when I read your post this morning. :(

    On a side note- the tights you asked about are Osh Kosh B'gosh. Nothing fancy, but they sure are cute, aren't they? :)

    I'll check back later to see how you're doing and to see a new picture on the site. I know it must have been tough for you to post without a picture. Unheard of for 3 Peanuts!

    Take care!

  8. ouchie!

    sorry you are feeling ill...prayers are coming your way!



  9. Kim,

    Just sent you an email but wanted to post my wishes here, too. I am sorry you don't feel well. Wish I could help out with Kate today.

    Praying for you to have some relief VERY soon.


  10. Kim..
    I am hope you are feeling somewhat better as I am typing this several hours later! Sounds miserable! Just wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers today!

  11. Kim, I hope that your next post is of how you finally got some sleep & woke up feeling relieved! You are in my prayers.....

  12. Oh Kim - that is crummy. As a Chrohn's sufferer, I know all too well the sleepless nights with tummy troubles.

    Hope you are feeling better and hoping Kate has a quiet day today so you can rest a bit (I know, wishful thinking:)

    Thinking of you,

  13. what a bummer.
    i mean a mom should be able to eat peanut m&m's guilt free & pain free.
    hope you are back up to par soon.
    can't wait to see what you little miss kate will be dressed up in tomorrow!
    ps-- a dear friend of mine has been waiting to adopt her "kate" from china. i get confused where they are in the process but i think its somewhere around 18months so far & they've been told they will wait atleast another year.
    i sent her your link but here is her sweet story...enjoy...

  14. Hi Kimber, you poor thing! I've been eating the candy for days now, completely guilt-free, of course ;)

    I do hope you are feeling better today, or at least on the mend.

    Hang in there,
    Snick :)

  15. Keeping you in my prayers. Hope you are feeling tummy happy soon.

  16. Hi there,

    Feel better soon. Btw, does your chiropractor have a partner? 3 weeks is too long to wait!


  17. Sending hugs and prayers your way!
    Kim and Katiebug

  18. My hubby used to struggle with that same valve. Hope you're feeling better soon.


  19. Oh Kim,
    You poor thing. I hope and pray that by the time this reaches you, you are feeling much better :D I am up most days at 4 am, so you should have called :D

    Ladybug hugs,

  20. Oh I am so sorry! I have been having sleeping issues, too, but they are from axiety. I can definitely sympathize. I hope tonight is one of rest, I am praying for you.


  21. Oh Kim, I hope you feel better soon!

  22. So sorry that you are not well. Even more sorry that 3 "peanuts" will be bringing home more tempting treats tomorrow...stay strong.:) My mom gets the same thing from popcorn?

  23. hi kim,

    things have been crazy around here - i will be sure to call on thursday - post halloween madness - hope by the time you see this you are feeling much better - love, staci

  24. Oh Kim- I am so sorry!!!! Can your chiropractor's office refer you to another while he is out of the country? Sending prayers your way for some relief SOON!!!!!!!!!!!! I had no idea you were feeling so badly when I emailed you yesterday. You are such trooper. You need to slow down and take care of YOURSELF!


  25. KIm,

    Sorry your not feeling well. Hope you feel better soon. Try to stay away from peanuts anyway they are hard on your stomach. Joey's doctor says no nuts. Well we hope your feeling well today!!!


  26. Kim, I am so sorry to hear you are going through this. I will be praying you are feeling wonderful soon.
    Hang in there friend.


Thank you for your kindness.
