I survived!

The surgery is over and went quite well. One of the 4 incisions had to be a little larger than normal, but other than that, and the fact that they stuck me 3 times to get an IV in, it went well. I am off the pain meds, moving around nicely, and would be feeling pretty good, except for a small post op complication. Hopefully that will be resolved real soon, and I'll be back to normal...or as normal as I get. I can't drive either the car or my quilting machine for a week, so I'm finding other things to occupy my recovery.

The baby dove, turned out to be 2, they are both out of the nest and flying around the garage, but not leaving ...yet. They are having too much fun pooping all over Don's work benches and counters. He's hoping they leave tomorrow!
I don't know....they look pretty comfortable!
I believe I told you before, I am taking an art class online. Well, I am behind a bit, but was able to get my color wheel assignment colored and fused at least. Crayola should have a warning on the label about coloring while medicated..LOL! Oh well! I got 2 of the compliments switched...can you find them?
Most of you know my Harry loves hunting lizards...he was my inspiration for the color wheel design. And he was a wonderful nurse. He has not left my side since I got home from the hospital. He laid beside me in bed just nuzzling my face with his. Chloe stayed pretty close too, just not on me like Harry. They are so sweet!
Thanks to all of you for the kind thoughts and encouragement you have so freely given. I appreciate it.


  1. I'm so glad you are on the mend and that you are getting such good nuring care! maybe a little joggles shopping will get you through the post-op complications.

  2. Good to hear you are doing well. The color wheel looks great. I guess I don't know enough about it to find the mistake. Take it easy and recoup. Sounds like you have good company in your recovery.

  3. Hi Deb I am glad you are on the upswing of things, hope the small glitch is nothing big..I love the color wheel! what great imagination you have...wonderful colors...

  4. Glad you are home and all went well. Loved all the pictures. Your nursing staff seems very caring (the kitties).

  5. As if you need encouragement from Vicki to shop at joggles!

    I knew Harry was your inspiration before I read it!

  6. I'm so happy to hear you are doing well and hopefully that complication won't be too much of a bother.
    I love your color wheel!

  7. So glad to hear everything went well and you are on the mend. Isn't it amazing how animals can just sense we need their comfort. Take care of yourself and don't overdo.

  8. Good news. (((((hugs)))) DOnt over do it though even if you are feeling better.

    P.S> I LOVE that color wheel.
