Thank you for all your well wishes and prayers for my surgery. It went well and now to heal up and get on with life.
Right before surgery selfie! I think I had some sleepy drugs onboard already!
The Surgeon did find 3 hernias instead of just one and told Sara that 2 of them were caused by my gallbladder surgery 18 months ago. I am hearing it is a possible complication from laparoscopic surgery. I'm wearing a lovely 'binder' to keep that from happening again I hope. The healing will take 6-8 weeks.
I pulled out my collection of white pottery and I'm enjoying it in the cubbies and in the bookshelf.
I have a few other white pieces that are on other shelves but I forgot to take a photo. Whoops!
I pulled out the blue glass and sheep for the other cubbie. I see some of this leaving my possession soon. I am still in downsize mode.
In some very sad news, my Mom's cat Sam crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
He was 17 and had been sick but hanging in there until the Friday morning of my pre-op. Mom called and said we had to take him now. Our wonderful Vet helped us take the next steps and we are thankful for her compassion and kindness.
We all miss him. Mom most of all.
One of my favorite photos.
Tiger said he was being a cat and hanging out with Sam.
We miss you old boy!
So it's been a hard couple of weeks here at A La Carte. My daughter Sara has taken great care of me! My Mom has been cooking and checking on me several times a day. I'm still in some 'pain' and a bit of discomfort but it gets better everyday. The worst part is not being able to do much. Lots of watching TV and trying to read (it's been putting me to sleep though). I'm taking it easy like I'm suppose to and letting the healing happen!
Wishing you all JOY,
