Recuperating




Hey, Y'all,


It seems that I am finally feeling like I am on the mend. I know it has only been a week and 3 days since the last surgery, and although recovery seems slow, it is taking place. Sleeping at night presents the most difficulty, but I know after the staples are removed, I should be able to be more comfortable at night. It seems like I have twice as much belly as I did before the first gall bladder surgery on june 2nd.

Each morning I arise at 6 a.m, take a shower, and get dressed for the day (fresh gown) and then put on my summery housecoat. Then I go out to the back patio and sit enjoying the fresh morning air, and the sound of the birds. I take a tour of the yard by walking its perimeter. By 7 a.m. I am ready for my breakfast and come in to eat.

After breakfast, I am ready to check my e-mails and maybe play a little on the computer. Not long after, I go back out to the patio and rock and enjoy the rest of the morning. Sometimes, I sit out there and read. I also take another walk around the yerd. Mid-morning, I have a little snack of banana and peanut butter (for protein and potassium).

Sometime during the late morning, I go online and do my blogging. (It is that time now). Later, I have lunch and then rest a while and maybe watch a movie. So goes the day. After supper, I give Gramps a call to see how he is doing and how his day has gone.

I am posting a picture of myself on Teresa's patio, and also of her gazebo, where I take a rest when I am midway through my walk around her yard. The pic of the gazebo will give you some idea of the size of the yard perhaps. To see the gazebo up close, click on the pic and it should enlarge for you. Tom and Teresa built the gazebo last summer and Tom built the observatory to the right of it last summer.
Well, it is time for me to close out for today. My staples are becoming uncomfortable sitting here, so I am heading for my rocker on the back patio. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you. Bye for now. More tomorrow.

Glad to know Ruby you are progressing. take things easy.

Thanks for popping by, my dad died in 1947 just after w.w.2, he passed away suddenly.
It was sad because as well as me not knowing him my own children didn't know him either.

Have a lovely week-end.
Yvonne.

So glad to hear you are up and around and recovering nicely. You look really good sitting there in that chair and Teresa's yard is just beautiful. I am sure all that good care you are getting is helping the healing process. Just continue to go slow and take things easy for a while. Thanks for keeping us updated. Love and hugs, Judy

Ruby,
Thanks for your kind words about my blog and artwork. You are an artist. You have the ability to take everyday events and turn them into beautiful, interesting stories.

I have been following your blog for a while. I follow it in my Google Reader, so when you update I know it and won't miss anything. I'm so glad you are doing better. You look great!

Tell Teresa I said "hello". And thanks for having my blog on her list. I get to update more when school is out and I'm not so busy with getting lessons ready and such.
