My last post was on October 25 and 5 days later I was having emergency gallbladder surgery. 6 weeks later I was having a second surgery. I am 2 weeks from having that second surgery and I’m in that place where I’m not totally recovered but recovered enough to be going crazy because I’m bored. I keep reminding myself that I’ve got to be patient.
It’s Christmas Eve and it’s pretty quiet around here. Our kids alternate holidays – this year they were here for Thanksgiving and next year they’ll be here for Christmas. So, it worked out pretty good so I could have this time to recuperate. But it’s awfully quiet and not frantic, an unusual feeling for Christmas.
We decided that our gift to the kids and grandkids this year would be a family trip, so I didn’t have to do any Christmas shopping. So, really, it all worked out great for me to have this time to have these surgeries and have time to heal.
I’ve been really pleased with the medical care I’ve received, it’s been excellent. We’ve only been here a little over a year and so I’ve had to just trust these new doctors and hospitals and labs. I feel blessed.
So, here I am. I’m thinking that I might be able to type and take a few photos and maybe getting back to blogging will help me make it through these next few weeks of healing.
I’d appreciate a comment so I can know if I really have readers. Not that I’m going to stop if I don’t, haha! I just want to know who’s out there with me.
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a sparkly New Year!
