Happy Birthday to Me!

I hope that everyone has been checking my Twitter posts to see how I have been doing! Today is day 8. The surgery was a rousing success! The recovery is very painful, but I am moving along faster than most per the doctor. Hubby has proven, time and time again, to be a champion helpmate. I am celebrating each small step of progress as a major victory. My trait of headstrong determination is being put to good use as I mend, LOL!

I appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers SO MUCH! I didn’t set up the last post to accept comments because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to moderate and approved them for publishing for quite a while. I hope that you all understand and the funny cartoon made up for it!

I can’t sit for long periods here at the kitchen’s laptop docking station. Also, my office computer is not going to be used for quite a while because it is not suitable for a handicap situation. So please continue to look on Twitter for little posts about my progress and life here around Grey Havens cottage. (You may either ignore or enjoy my mild political rants. It’s your pick. I am in great need to vent off some steam, LOL.) I will try a blog post now and then. I have not been able to visit anybody’s blog lately, and I hope that all of my blogging buddies are doing great.

Thanks to the support of my loved ones and some medicine to help ease the pain, this birthday will be filled with a lot of joy!
