Hi….I am on day number 8 since surgery. Doc took all but my ovaries. It’s really hard for me to be still and not do stuff. I think I have done very well following instructions. I just wonder why it is so important to not lift more that 10 pounds. I feel like I can pick up more than that. I don’t want to hinder my healing, I just wonder why I hear that you can’t sweep, clean house, exercise, etc. I took the last of my pain pills two nights ago and the constipation was horrid! I have been taking some herbal flora pills and I’m not sure if those helped so much or if it was the fact that it was finally two days without the pain stuff. I will continue to take them because they are helpful to my system. The pain that I am having is my belly button, one of my holes in my belly and low in my pelvis. I’m sure the pelvis pain is due to the sutures at my vagina. Also, when I go pee it hurts in the same area when I’m almost done going. Sometimes when I stand up it feels like my belly button is kinda tearing. Did you experience any of that?
That same month on 19 August Adair organised a "loyalist day of culture" on the lower Shankill Road. He invited the five other brigadiers from the Inner Council to attend along with leading loyalist Michael Stone and politicians John White and Frank McCoubrey . This event featured loyalist marching bands and a militant show of strength by the West Belfast Brigade. It also sparked a violent feud between the UDA and its rival loyalist organisation, the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF). Clashes first broke outside the "Diamond Jubilee" on the lower Shankill then spread to the "Rex Bar", a popular UVF drinking den where shots were fired and UVF members beaten up. Adair and his followers then attacked the homes of UVF members and their families in the lower Shankill, forcing them out of the area,  whilst orders were also sent up to A Company in Highfield that the estate should be "cleansed" of UVF members.  Adair's men also sacked the homes of Gusty Spence and Winston Churchill Rea as part of a move to drive the UVF off the Shankill.   The UVF struck back on 21 August, killing two of Adair's allies, Jackie Coulter and Bobby Mahood, on the Crumlin Road . In response C Company members burned down the headquarters of the UVF-linked Progressive Unionist Party (PUP).  However Adair was arrested on 22 August 2000 whilst he and Dodds were driving down the Shankill Road. As a result of his involvement in the violence, the then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Peter Mandelson had revoked Adair's early release and returned him to prison. This time he was sent to Maghaberry instead of the Maze.  With command reverting to Dodds, UVF member Samuel Rockett was shot and killed at his home by C Company the following night, with the feud petering out after this.
