I got back from the hospital yesterday. Oh, it's so good to be home at last! It was a long, long week! I'm still a little tender in spots, but basically I don't feel too bad. Which is surprising, considering how badly I felt just a few days ago right after surgery. But the human body is an amazing piece of work and it's incredible how swiftly it can heal and restore itself.
(I have no idea why the preceding paragraph is blue and underlined. Moreover, I can't figure out how to fix it. So fine, be like that, @#$*!! Blogger.com!)
Thank you again, everyone, for your kind comments and healing wishes over the past week. I really do appreciate all those loving gestures and believe they made all the difference!
Anyway, now I must take it easy for 6-8 weeks, get lots of rest, don't lift anything too heavy, etc. Of course, I'll be eating lots of medicinal chicken noodle soup . . .
So when I got home, there was a small pile of mail waiting for me -- bills, flyers, junk mail, the usual. Plus a letter from Madame Zara! I'll share it with you tomorrow, once I'm over the shock of the news that it contains.
