This has been one of the rainiest summers that I can remember in east Tennessee. Rain clouds like this are a common sight over Grey Havens cottage. We are thankful for a good roof to keep us safe and dry!
I am on the mend from the umbilical hernia surgery last Thursday. I had a few setbacks, with an immediate one in the recovery room due to low oxygen levels, and an uncooperative bladder this weekend. But it is all good now. The mesh implant must be settling in because there are a whole lot of pinching pains going on today! I’m keeping the pain pill bottle handy, LOL. I saw my surgeon briefly yesterday, and she was very pleased with my progress. I go back on Monday next week. I’m doing well enough that I plan to sleep in bed tonight instead of my recliner.
Mr. Jim is managing okay without my assistance. In fact, he’s been thriving with cooking and eating activities. So those important prayers have been answered! Swelling in his legs continues to be an issue, so please continue to pray that he gets some needed relief.
Despite busy summertime schedules, A Personal Photo Challenge this past weekend received favorable participation, and we got to view many creative portraits. If you joined in on the challenge fun, please ensure that you visit and comment on everybody’s posts. It is the kind thing to do! If you didn’t join in, I hope you will consider next time! The theme next month will be “animals,” and background information will be published in the next few days.
