Hello, my dears! First, thanks to all of you for your best wishes, notes of encouragement and all about my minor medical adventure. I really do have the best pals.
This will be the shortest of posts, but I wanted to let you know that I am now returned to the Nest, after this afternoon’s hernia surgery and doing really pretty well, although I don’t discount the voice of the post-0p meds in that assessment, either. ; )
We got in a little trouble for arriving so early to the hospital, but its August and traffic around here always has the potential to go from O to Nightmare in next to nothing, so we didn’t mind hanging out in the waiting room for a while until my turn arrived. That was the only glitch in the day, and really, it’s pretty much an unglitch, isn’t it?
I’m happy to say that all the staff who helped me through the grand adventure were pleasant and fun and helpful and I really had gotten entirely over the whole “freaking out” thing by the time the moment arrived. And just as quickly, the moment was passed and I was happily munching on some Lorna Doones in recovery.
So, that’s the story, peoples. I’m off to rest and relax and recover and all that. I shan’t be gone too long, but meanwhile, please do enjoy Chatham Light, as it appeared at dusk last evening as we made our way home from dinner.
Oh, and lest I forget, I want to wish my dear sister Sue the Happiest of Birthdays today. I hope it’s a lovely day where she is!
