HAPPY EASTER -OFF FOR A BREAK AND A BIT OF SURGERY

 Wishing you a 

Happy Easter

and a 

Happy Spring!


               I will be taking a break for at least a month.

I have some unexpected surgery coming up

mid month and I need to get some things

done before I go in hospital.

It is not life-threatening so no worries there.

I feel fortunate that at age 72 this is the 

FIRST MEDICAL ISSUE

I have ever had.

I have been blessed with good health

and hope to continue on with good health

once this problem is taken care of.

I will have 15 days of

'don't do ANYTHING'

after the surgery

and then another couple of weeks of

'take it EASY'.

If you know me that is like a gunshot in the foot

If you feel inclined -send up a prayer

for my hubby.  

He is not doing so great and is used to me

taking care of him.

I will have a grandgirl on call to help

when I need her.

See you in a month.

If you don't see me in a month---

check the obits.

Okay- that's a joke- you know me- I have 

BLACK HUMOR

about everything!

It's how I survive!

Prayers for Both you and the hubby. In this life there is no simple surgery, maybe routine but we need prayer if only going for a shot. LOL I am laughing, but that is true.
Love you lady an will be anxiously looking for a return of this sweet time at your house.

There is a customer who comes in the store frequently and every time I ask how he is he replies "terrible but I'm not in the obituaries today" Well I hadn't seen him in a couple weeks so when he finally came in I asked where he'd been. I told him I had even checked the obituaries to see if he was there. :)
Sending prayers for both you and your husband. Take care and have a Happy Easter.

And here I was fussing over where to sit at your Easter table. You never told us you were going to have surgery! Praying now for you as you prepare and then for the surgery to be successful, and for you to heal quickly. Will definitely be praying for your hubby as you recuperate. I hope you will have good helpers. Take care of yourself and get well soon, but please obey your doctor and don't do too much!!

Had an idea, about that dooooooo nothinggggggg order.

Do they make ankle locks, which announce to your doc's office, when you DO something not allowed????

That sounds like a very good idea, to me. Knowing you, and how doooooing nothingggggg, is not in your usual vocabulary.

Heh,heh,heh....
