Surgery, recovery, and therapy have been going well. I'll omit the details as I'm sure no one really wants to hear about them.

I've really discovered what great friends I have made in blogland the last two years. I have so appreciated all of your encouragement and comments. Sue at Rue-Mouffetard
was so supportive before surgery; then gave me a phone call the day after surgery. Those of you that know Sue can attest to the fun it was to talk to her.
Then, my other SUE friend from back east, Suzie Q at Rabbit Run Cottage
surprised me with the delivery of this gorgeous, sweet smelling bouquet. I was so excited that I probably scared the poor, delivery gal to death - a 71-year old lady in sweat pants, with tubes running in and out all over the place and a bad hair day is not a pretty sight! But, I have so enjoyed those flowers with the sentiment behind them.

Thanks to everyone!!!!
I'm still lacking stamina at the keyboard, but I'll try to return to full blogging activity in a week or so.
Again, my sincere thanks to all of you.

I'm glad you are doing well. I wanted to tell you that your blog is inspiring to me. The type of things you blog about, all those everyday things, are what I love to read about. I love living a simple life! Quilting, antiquing, cooking, day trips and enjoying the grandchildren are my favorite things. Please keep blogging about your life so that I may enjoy reading about someone just like me...a normal person!

Sounds like some serious surgery. Take it easy and don't rush the blogging. We'll all be here when you feel more like it. Rest!!!

Sally, I am glad you have the surgery behind you! You must be typing one handed!! I can't believe you had one of those boxes. I never knew they existed. Hope you are feeling better every day!

Susie Q said...

Oh Sally!!! I have been off the computer a lot of late and just now found your email! I also got your very sweet note too!
I wanted to call (Sue A gave me your #) but I didn't want to disturb you if you were resting...I have a knack for calling at the wrong time!! *laugh*
I am so happy you liked the flowers...just wanted you to know I was thinking about you and cared so much!

Get well soon and we will be here when you are feeling 100%!!

Glad that you have the surgery behind you and hope for better days ahead. Sometimes this getting older stuff is a real booger! Just had foot surgery myself...but the end result will be worth it...I hope! Feel better.
Hugs, Donna
