Hello again

I can’t believe I’m writing another post without a single picture in it, but I wanted to take a moment to tell you how completely overwhelmed I’ve been reading all your prayers and beautiful words of encouragement. It’s taken me a few days but I have read them all … all 4,400+ of them. Wow!!! I’ve smiled and cried and felt so lucky to have this blog that connects us all. Thank you.

While reading, I was moved by so many of you that share similar stories. And even more overwhelmed by offers to be tested to see if you could be a kidney donor for me. That is so amazing. I don’t even know how to process it yet. Asking that of anyone is something that does not come naturally to me. It’s very difficult to even accept that gift from my mom if she turns out to be able to donate. And hopefully she will. But your offers are so special and kind and generous of heart that I had to make sure you all knew that I did read them and whether or not I could ask that of anyone, I wanted you all to know how honored I am.

There were an overwhelming number of comments from people that know someone with kidney failure or on dialysis or with a transplant or even their second or third transplant. Too, too many. My love goes out to all of you and your family and friends as well. It’s a tough thing.

March is National Kidney Month and I believe April is National Donate Life Month. With everything going on with me lately, I find it hard not to mention that. Please take a minute to think about organ donation. So many people are on waiting lists and will be for a long time.

Okay, the good news is I came home from the hospital Tuesday night after 18 days. Finally. Yay! I’ll be on a different journey for a while, but one that I’ve been on before. Dialysis. I won’t go into all the details, but basically I will get four-hour treatments, three days a week. Kind of a bummer. But hopefully it won’t be for too long.

I also wanted to let you know that I still plan on posting as I go through everything. I want to keep things as close to normal as possible. It may not be on a schedule, but it will be when I can. And of course … cute.

P.S. – I want to say hi to all the first time commenters. Hi there! Big hugs. I’m so happy to hear from all of you.

And now I’m off to read 18 days of emails that I wasn’t able to check while I was in the hospital. Help.

P.S.S. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I haven’t had a chance to hop on your site for a while now and was very sad to hear you are not well. Thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery. The ideas & recipes here are a little spot of sunshine every time I log on.

Bakerella,
So sorry to hear about this! I just came over today after thinking that I hadn’t seen anything from you in awhile. I will definitely be praying for you in this next stage of your life. I am so glad to hear you are out of the hospital though!

So glad you’re home! That will hopefully make you feel at least 50 times better already! From visiting my friend there, I know dialysis sucks (quite literally) but i’m keeping you in my thoughts for a donor, your mom or otherwise, very soon!

I found your blog just today and am amazed at all the delish things I found. I am sorry to hear about your kidneys, and I hope you are well very soon.

Melinda said...

I have not commented very often – maybe once when you had a give-away but I have lovingly followed your site when time permitted and I bought your book even though the only cake pops I have made have been in my head. LOL. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. My mom has dialysis twice a week and is not a candidate for a transplant due to her almost 8 year battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Be blessed and know that you are loved and prayed for by many. <3

Bakerella!

I’m so glad you’re doing better and I wish you all the best. I’m glad you’re still so peppy and making the best of everything; that’s one of the best things about your website: you’re optimism and excitedness about life and everything. All of your posts were always so cheerful, not to mention incredibly creative and adorable! You’re website always brightened my day and I hope that you can continue doing what you obviously really love!

Just keep swimming!

Love to you. You brought tears to my eyes and chills through my body. I cannot imagine going through something like this at all, and especially not with such a sweet, positive attitude. Thank you for being you. You are such an inspiration, both in the kitchen and in life. Looking forward to many more wonderful *cute* posts.

I recently found your site and have fallen in love. I have always loved baking but this sure really brought it back and with so much creativity and cuteness! I just read your post and really wish you the best. Things might get rough but always know you have a whole lotta fans cheering you on! Get well and come back stronger!!

Jodi said...

I am not normally one to comment on blog sites. I am obsessed with what you do—and am envious of your extreme talent…but, I’ve never really been one to post, for whatever reason.

But, I feel compelled to tell you that I’ve thought about you a lot over the last three weeks. I’m deeply saddened by your situation and I am praying that you will come through this okay. I’m a baker who bakes most often when I am sad or frustrated because it makes me happy—and I have turned to your site for inspiration on many different occasions. And, although I have not mastered the art of cake pops—I am determined to not give up. :)

I hope that you will use your passion for baking as an outlet as well…and I pray that your treats bring joy to not only others…but, to yourself as well.

Be well. There are obviously thousands of people praying for you. That matters. And, it will help. I am sure of it.

I just saw Ree mention you were ill so I came here to check. Wow, I’m so sorry to be late in wishing you well. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. God’s blessings and please let your mom know that I’m sending our best too. I will certainly let Kaye know as I’m sure she would like to wish you well too.

I am so glad to hear you are back home!!! You are in my thoughts and prayers daily and I just know that God is holding you right now through all of this.

We LOVE you!!!!

Joanne Kennedy said...

Well please add me to the list of people who would be more then happy to give you one of my kidneys if you need it. I almost gave another blogger friend one of mine to her daughter but just as I was ready to get tested they found one of her neighbors was a match. Since he was much closer to her they went with him.

I have always wanted to be a donor. I think it would be such an honor. So please, ask me.

I’m happy you are finally home. Please do not over do it and rest as much as you can.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Joanne

So glad to hear another update. I’ve been thinking of you, praying for you, and worried for you (is that weird since I don’t “know” you?). Well, I feel like I do in some small way, since I have been following you on this blog since Feb. 2008.

The one thing I’ve been really wondering is why would a person your age have a “bad” kidney? Is this something you were born with?

Sending lots of love and positive thoughts your way. Rest for now. Bake when you can… we’ll be waiting. =)

Hi!
First of all: get well soon. I am glad to hear you are home again.
Second: I was walking in a bookstore here in Belgium yesterday, checking out all the culinary stuff whe all of a sudden… I saw your cake pop book! Here! In Belgium! I was very very surprised.
I added it to my wish-list for my birthday :)
Keep up the good work!

WELCOME HOME!!!! Even with having to go through the dialysis regularly I know it must be great for you to be in your own space! Still holding you close to my heart!

I only just found your site the other week, was happy buzzing around looking at all the delightful things!

Have put a link up under my “Distractions” header on my wee bloggy :D i have been coming back quite a bit! You inspire me to continue what i am starting.

I wish you the best of luck since i’m not a religious and do not pray. I hope you become well again, and find time enough to be able to put some of your cute pics up.

Peace <3

You are special to many people. Cooking and baking are a means to show and give love ,and you have provided us the means to honor that gift. You will be back soon to continue, I am sure. I bet you spent some time in the hospital designing new little pops. I am a cancer survivor, and while times will be tough for you know that many, many are praying for you. Worked for me.

Thanks for taking the time to update us, I know people around the world are keeping you in their thoughts and prayers.

Something seems to be wrong with the donation link on the National Kidney Month site, I hope it’s because it’s overwhelmed with so many people going threre thru your link. The link works, it’s only after initiating the donation that the error comes up, repeatedly….but I’m betting there’s more than one place out there to make a donation so I’m off to find it! Best to you always Angie!

Cait said...

You’ve inspired me to actually get up and do something I’ve been considering for a while. I’m already registered as an organ donor and donate blood regularly. Now I’ve joined a living donor registry as well. It struck me that if, after reading about your kidney troubles, I was willing to go out and get tested, that I shouldn’t stop myself just because you have a possibility. I wish I could do more to help, but that’s probably why I chose a career in nursing. I rock the minimum pain I.V. insertion!

This means, of course, that my O negative organs and I are now on a list and willing to rush out your way if need be :)

Dear Bakerella,

Please know that we all are on this journey together with you. Inspired by you, I am off today to bring my Boston Cream Cupcakes to my 94 year old aunt for her birthday. You have no idea as to how universally you have spread your joy. It has been paid forward in great abundance; and the tide of kindness and good karma is surely on its way back to you.
Sincerely,
Joy

Bakerella, I just started reading your blog recently and first I must say, I am absolutely in love with all of your recipes and goodies. They look fab and I can’t wait to try out some of them, especially the Valentine lip pops!

Second, I must say you are one brave woman. You are going through something incredibly difficult, yet remaining ultra positive and sincere. It gives hope to those of us who have trouble dealing with hard times. I don’t know much about the kidneys, but I do know that I will pray for you and wish you nothing but good thoughts!!!!!

Im so happy that you are home now thats the first great step to a fast recovery, when I hear about your case i thought about my brother who has a kidney transplant and the donator was his daughter and Thanks God they both are in perfect health and my niece recently have her first baby and its a beautiful girl.. so miracles exist all days around us.. keep positive and dont loose your faith, the donator would come pretty soon. My priest for you and God bless you with good health and happiness. And happy St Patricks day to you also .

So glad to hear you are home again and feeling better. Techonology is a wonderful thing when it brings virtual friends together and gathers needed prayers on your behalf.

I’m so happy to hear that you are out of the hospital.
Firstly I want to mention that I’m an RN of 30 + years and also a patient with several auto immune diseases. For this I have to take an immuno suppressant and steroids and have been on very high dose IV steroids about 5 times over the past 8 yrs.
I don’t want you to take this wrong but after being on steroids and Cellcept, I have your cheeks now, but have to say that they look so much better on you, my dear. You have always looked mahvelous!!
I used to care for heart transplant patients and understand a little of what a transplant entails. Wow, pretty amazing!
I am sending you my best wishes, prayers and hopes for the journey you are on. With your upbeat attitude you will do well!
You take care and know that a nurse in Indiana is sending you love and prayers!

Bakerella – in honor of you and National Kidney Month I will be adorning my mini cupcakes with fondant shaped kidney beans and ureters this weekend!!! Everyone has a story here is mine – I came to know you by way of my own medical conundrum – I started chemo for my brain tumor last fall after several years of stable scans. I was depressed (ya no duh!) and needed a diversion. On a whim I bought a cake decorating kit (it was either that or start some serous meeds :). Having no clue I turned to the internet and found YOUR SITE and fell in love and bought your book. Your site turned me to so many wonderful things and installed such JOY and HAPPINESS were it was dwindling. I will continue to pray for a safe journey for you. Thank you so much.

I wish you the best on getting a donor. If you ever need a laugh from sick humor or uplifting stories check out http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com Great site for invisible illnesses, it has helped me a lot over the years. There is even a forum section if you just have to vent but don’t want to take it out on family and friends.

Angie, I am not kidding when I say one of the best days of my life was when I found your blog and saw the limitless possibilities in baking. Baking is my passion and it has never ceased to amaze me the ideas you come up with. Just when I think I have seen it all…HERE YOU COME with something new and over the top. You have been blessed so much with a creativity that I have never seen before. You are in my prayers, Bakerella. You are touching so many lives and we are all praying for you. May God richly bless you and give you all you need to get through this period of your life. It is amazing that I have never met you but I feel we have know each other forever. I am praying for you, ANgie.
Love ya…Michelle :-)

Sometimes the road takes us on a different journey than we had planned. But that is not a bad thing. Its just different. When we look back we see why this happened but as were going through it we are blessed with people in our lives that write and keep you in their prayers. I wish you a speedy recovery and one that blesses you in this journey.
