I have made it through my surgery....

Sorry it has taken me so long for an update... last week was tough. Headaches.... but I had my surgery on Friday and things are getting much better.

Now that being said - when a doctor tells you that you will have a couple of "bad" days after surgery, then things will get better. Well... that is an understatement. WOW  - But here I am on Monday and I can "see" the light at the end of the tunnel. I feel much better today. I vaguely remember the phone ringing a few times over the weekend and Hubby saying "Well she is having a rough day, she is just a little Crabby" .... well I think that was an understatement as well :0)  He has been such a great nurse... I think pretty cute too...

So what is the future now? Lots of little steps, we go on Thursday for my first check up after surgery, then we start the procedures to getting my artificial eye. They have said you will have to really know it is not mine these people are so good at making them.

I have to now say again a huge Thank you - the out poring of cards, emails and well wishes I cannot even express how much it has helped me through this. I truly feel each of you are with me. And it makes me stronger knowing I have so many across the world helping get through it all. And I really cannot even speak about how generous you have been with the donations - from the bottom of my Heart as well as Hubby's Thank you -

Sorry this is short... but the computer screen is making my stomach do flips... so it is time to sign off... I will try and pop back in a day or so- -

Thank you - Thank you - Thank you .... HUGS

Oh Michelle I'm so glad things are going the right way, even though I know this is hell for you (and Hubby).
My Autistic daughter who likes to look at all the pictures of your animals, was just asking me about you (how you had it).
You are still in my prayers and thoughts.
Big hugs from me. Jóna

I am glad to hear that the surgery went well. If you follow doctor's orders, you will continue to improve each day. Take advantage of this time with hubby playing nurse because once you are well again, you'll probably have to wait on him.
Sending big hugs!

I was so glad to see this post from you! I'm glad that you are feeling better. I imagine that the first couple of days after surgery were MORE than just a little rough. But having a cute male nurse helps! Glad to hear that hubby is such a good nurse. Just keep hanging in there...
Gentle hugs,

Here's a smile for today: My dd saw the picture on your blog that says, "My smiling donkey, Raffie". She thought it said, "My smiling donkey raffle". I told her that there was no way you would ever raffle off one of your babies. lol
