Hey! I've taken two of those lovely little pills called oxycodone and am feeling well enough to sit here. I hate whiners and the past two days have found me whining! Poor John.

One of my girlfriends came today bringing chicken noodle soup and commented, upon seeing me at the door, "you look horrible". That was all it took to get my head under the faucet, washed, dried and curled. A bit of make up, some time outside on the porch, some silliness from her and I began to feel as good as I did Saturday. Dr. Foxhall's nurse called this afternoon stressing to take it S-L-O-W. And I hate doing that.

But for the sake of taking care of his surgical work, and the sanity of John, I will. We were told, several times by the intern and enough by the surgeon, that there was some major problems encountered and he had to do more than he expected. He still isn't sure why the first surgery back in '06 went the way it did, but it's all patched up and fixed up now. I've lost several major muscle bands, but that gives me an excuse for the ab scrunches not working! {wink, wink}

For all of you that came, brought food, called, emailed, prayed, left comments, checked on Johnny and or Jenny, or in any way showed you cared about us, we thank you from the bottom of our heart. Know that I feel the same about you.

Okay, so I'm finding it painful to sit here any longer. Even with the pills. Have a great evening, hope you slept well, and that the morning dawns on a bright and beautiful Tuesday for us all~

I am glad you are feeling better, even if it is just a little bit.
One day at a time.
I am sorry, but I somehow missed you having surgery. What type of surgery? (if you do not mind my asking)
I will keep both you and hubby in my prayers for a speedy recovery and both of you back to your 'ol selves.
HUGS

So glad that is over! Yes, from a Doctor (even if I am an animal Doctor), you better take it easy! Give your body time to heal so that you don't have to do it again... :) Take care!

Sweet Nancy, I am overwhelmed tonight getting ready for company and have been neglectful at making my blog rounds so far this week. But I was so delighted to read your comment tonight I just had to drop by and say hello. I'm so glad you made it through your surgery, and hope you are taking it easy and getting better every day.

I am so glad that you are feeling a bit better. I have wanted to come chat with you, but just have not been feeling very good myself--these awful allergies. But I am still praying for you and hoping that you will have a VERY speedy recovery. Just take it easy and let the healing continue. Love you lots girlfriend.

Im so glad that everything went well but I hate that you are feeling bad!I got rid of my partylite blog.... but I will bring you a catalog tomorrow on my lunch break (along with a little something else) if you dont mind. I wont stay (I know how hard guests are when you feel like that). I will just be simple and drop the items off by your house, is that ok?
