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!
