I am home again. The surgery went really well on Thursday. I am still very uncomfortable and on medication, but I've been able to finish the mystery I started last week - Blood on the Tongue by Stephen Booth. It was so lovely to read again! I am now deciding betweeen Broken Harbour by Tana French, and Little Girl Lost by Brian McGilloway, which will be next? Broken Harbour, I think.
I am so glad the surgery is done. I had been sick for a long time with my gallstones without realizing that was what it was. I'm curious to know what it will be like without my gall bladder, and most of all to not be afraid of another attack.
I watched my first on-the-road-to-recovery movie yesterday, IQ with Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins. I had to hold my stomach because it hurt to laugh, and I forgot how funny this movie is. Next up: Persuasion.
A friend of mine dropped by Thursday after the surgery to see how I was doing, and brought me these:
aren't they lovely? I love the green growing up the petal, it's such a lovely mix. This reminds me that spring will be coming, and soon. It is incredibly healing watching flowers bloom, and these tulips are just opening. Spring is coming!
Thank you for all of your wishes and support. It has helped a lot,
knowing so many care. I still can't sit at the computer for long, and I
tire easily, so I will be back when I am more recovered. I wanted to
let you all know I was fine and recovering.
