Surgery Update

 I hope everyone had a very nice Thanksgiving and was able to somehow connect with their loved ones. CO-VID has made it difficult to be with family, friends, and loved ones; however, I hope that with the creativity that I often see here, you were all able to create a way to be together.

I spend the day with my oldest daughter and her fiancé and his mom, dad, and grandma. I was able to talk to the rest of my family,  but most of them will be here Sunday to have dinner. I sure miss being home, but I am well taken care of here and I enjoy time with my daughter. Of course, being homesick has been an issue and I miss my granddoll so very, very much. She is literally my heart and soul!! 

For those that aren't aware, I had foot surgery a couple of weeks ago and I am staying with my daughter for a couple of weeks to recover, Recovery will be a few months, but I hope to go home on Sunday after we celebrate Thanksgiving. She has limited internet and limited phone service and it makes updating here and talking with my husband difficult, but I have managed. I am healing and the doctor said at my first post op appointment that things looked good. There was some swelling that he was a bit concerned about, but stated that it was normal. I see him again this Friday to have the bandages replaced and then in two more weeks, he hopes to remove stitches and the pins that are holding my toes in place. Then I will go into a boot, but still have limited mobility for a couple of months.

I miss my days of being busy! I miss my granddoll and the I am missing newborn time with the new baby. I miss my husband and I just miss home. Not that I am not in a nice place with plenty of time with my oldest but just isn't the same as home!

Christmas decor should be going up and I should be busy baking cookies, playing games with the granddoll and wrapping gifts, but those things will be very limited this year. I needed the surgery, but I am hating the recovery. Enough of my complaining though- there is much to be thankful for and I need to praise God that surgery went well and it seems as though recovery will as well.

Every stay safe and wear your masks! Prayers for all that are suffering from this horrible virus that has literally locked our country down and may continue to for awhile. Keep those around you safe and let's all remember that no matter what race we are, we are the United States of America. Politicians may try to divide us, groups that claim to care about race relations may try to divide us, but kindness starts with YOU. 


  1. So glad to hear your surgery went well. Hope you have a speedy recovery and can return home soon.

    1. Thanks Linda! My thoughts are with you and your family. I will say a few extra prayers for Lonnie, Lillian, and Summer.

  4. Carol, If you go home....please do not over do. You do not want to mess up that good surgery, you needed done. We do not have to decorate, if we just can't. Oh honey, I know how you are missing that baby. I need grandma hugs so badly. I miss all my babies. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie

    1. Susie, I am home and I am not overdoing it. I am getting a little bit of housework done, but very little. I sure did miss my granddoll.

  5. I pray that each day finds you healing more and more. I know you will be happy to be home. We had a nice Thanksgiving although a smaller group. Next year my prayer is that we can all be together again. Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

    1. Yes, Thanksgiving was not the same this year. I hope next year is better!

  6. Continued prayers for your complete healing. So glad the surgery was successful.
