Life

Seems that life has taken the upper hand with me lately. Since my last post so much has happened and although it was only a few days ago it seems like months.12 days ago I ended up in
the emergency room with a severe gall bladder attack. Since this was the second attack since June and my attempts at trying to control the pain with diet weren't working, it was decided I
would be admitted for emergency surgery to remove said gall bladder.
This was the very first surgery I've ever experienced. No joke. I never even had my tonsils removed as a kid or had a broken bone. I'm soon to be 58 years old and pretty healthy overall. It's
a good thing because what I thought was going to be a piece of cake,  this surgery.... has kicked my butt. I'm slowly coming around to feeling human again but it's a process. I thought it was
pretty cool on the first day home from the hospital to have an excuse to lay in bed and watch movies all day, because that's not something I would ever do, but the first few days that 
followed left me feeling so sick I could think of little else but sleep. I started feeling normal again after about the sixth day and today I'm feeling pretty good. Tired today because I spent
yesterday cleaning house and vacuuming and moping is probably something I should have saved till I was a little further along in the healing process. Oh well, it's done now and I can
hopefully get back to making beads tomorrow.

Remember my broken car? Well, now that the medical bills for surgery will start piling up we aren't really in a position to buy a new car. So, my old car was repaired and for now she runs
like new.

Stay tuned for new items from me as I start getting geared up for the holidays............

Hope you are feeling better. Surgery does take some time to get over.
