Surgery Goes Well!

Got through my surgery in good order and now am in a wheelchair for a couple of weeks. Thanks for everyone thinking of me! I haven't had a lot of pain and I am very thankful for that.

I have also learned that our house is not wheelchair friendly!!!! But I'm making the best of it and coming of with new ideas for moving around!!!!! My dear husband has become chief cook and bottle washer and is doing a splendid job. Our neighbors next door, great neighbors that they are, have brought in a great deal of food and we are happily eating that!!!! Thank you to our dear neighbors. Other friends from Sit and Sew have sent gift cards to restaurants in town---isn't that a nice thing to do--------many thanks to them. I've gotten so many nice cards and phone calls from friends, too. Everything means so much to me-----------thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I've done some handwork---redwork and some wool applique. But mostly have been reading and napping. This morning I tried some time at the sewing machine and sewed together the blocks for a Wicked Easy quilt, but I got awfully tired from just that little bit, so I went back to reading. But it was fun to be at the machine again!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Jan...keeping you in my prayers for a swift and 100% recovery! Glad to hear that you are doing well! I can just see Maynard in his chef's apron! :>)

Glad to see that you got a little time at the machine, but I can only imagine how it wore you out. Just pace yourself...we don't want you relapsing!

Sending you lots and lots of hugs!

Jan, good to hear you are recovering from your surgery. I hope the two weeks flies by. It's great when you have neighbors who are willing to help when needed. Take care.
