Recovery....

The Superhero would like to give a big shout out of thanks to my sister, Cathy, who came and took care of me and mama while I had surgery last Tuesday.  His relief was obvious!  I'll just leave it at that and go on with the story.

I have to say that this was the best surgery experience I have had.....the surgery center was great!  We got there about 5:30 a.m. and I was a nervous wreck and that's quite the understatement. I got right back, into a gown and onto a stretcher where I was afraid I would be freaking out waiting a long time to get things going.  But soon someone from anesthesiology came in to start my I.V. and get the drugs going so I wouldn't be bouncing off their walls and scaring the other patients.  


I'm smiling because I have drugs!  You should have seen the smiles on the faces of the nurses!  Let's just say everyone concerned was thankful for that medicine that makes you relax!  This is the only picture.....thankfully Cathy deleted the after photo because I wouldn't have been too happy to see that one on facebook!  Right after this picture was taken, I drifted off to la la land and woke up some time later all finished and ready to head home minus a gall bladder.

Fast forward to today.....or today.....cause it is now a full week since the surgery and I had my follow up appointment today yesterday and besides not lifting heavy stuff, I'm a free woman and those are the doctor's words!  The Superhero is happy that I can't milk the situation any longer.

This sweet get well picture came yesterday from  my dear little friend Anna Cross!
Note the crab she drew for me!  I love this and it made me feel so much better!!!

So.....I'm really glad that is done and over and I'm on to the next thing for the summer.  Our oldest grandson is arriving next Saturday!  We are all very excited here in Florida that one of our California grands will be here for a few days.  We have to pack a lot of love, hugs and fun into the small amount of time we'll have to visit!  I'm reeling over the fact that Adam will turn 17 this month.  So check back for pictures!

And since it's now another day I've fast forwarded to.....and yes another day, as in it's Wednesday now......Happy Birthday to my friend Tammy!


This is us in 1990, I don't think we've changed do you?  Tammy is nine years younger than me and is a sweet, gorgeous girl that I love and wish the happiest of days!  

Well, to make sure this gets posted today so I don't have to fast forward again....have a great rest of your week!

How wonderful that all went so well. Isn't it amazing what they can do these days without leaving you with a huge wound to heal? I'll bet it feels great to be back and going again.

Now you are ready for your grandson's visit. I'm glad he is able to make it. Enjoy!

Well, not too many changes do I see there except for the hair! You look great!
Glad you are recovering and looking forward to your visit with your grandson.
I have missed you.

Not sure what is greater cause for rejoicing: your being announced that you're a free woman now or your grandson coming for a visit. ;-) So glad that everything went well for your surgery (I had mine removed in 1996). I can't wait to see and hear all about your grandson's visit.

So glad you came through just fine and (hopefully) only missing the correct body part. :)

(((HUGS))) to you!

Oh, you are going to feel like a new woman for sure. Well, at least my Hubby did once he got his out about 4 years ago.

Enjoy your Grandson and make a whole bunch of memories!

Very happy to hear your doing well!
Was disapointed you didn't have the little blue hat on in the photo, they are such a fashion statement :-)
Happy to hear your grandson will be visiting, I'm sure you are over the moon about it. Have a great time loving him up!

Continued good health!

Hugs
