for your thoughts, prayers and support.
Jeanne took this picture of me as I was getting ready to leave the hospital. She also gave me the fabulous shawl she made and wrapped me up in. Jeanne has been a constant, caring support to me.
I don't remember much about the hospital stay. In the operating room, I remember getting a shot in my back, which I, for a brief second thought was a bit strange, and then I was out of it.
The surgery went well. My recovery is going well too. I took a couple of Tylenol for pain the first few days, but I don't need them now.
I only have one drain to empty and record.
At home, I was greeted by my niece, Jasmine, who had made a fabulous spicy mushroom soup, which was just what I needed.
Faith wasn't particularly happy to see me. Having a visitor, who I'm sure gave her lots of treats, took her for walks and paid her a lot of attention, clearly was a lot of fun for her.
Then I smelled of all those scary hospital smells, so it took a while for us to get back to normal.
All is normal now, she's snoozing here by my side and all is as it should be in my world.
Even better, winter arrived early with a special snow storm just for me, or so it seemed. All gone now, but still so lovely.
