GIfts of Love and Friendship

BORED! HAHA,, Recovery from surgery is never easy but my recovery is going great. Keep in mind, mom kidnapped me and will not me return home till Thursday. Bless her heart and I am very grateful to her but here I don't have anything but my laptop and a book. At home I have so much more I could be passing time with.
So with that, I decided I needed to blog.
HAHA.. do I really need a reason?
Wanted to share this arrangement with you. From my brother and sis in law oops.... Just realized that I did not have a pic of the cup and saucer the arrangement came in. Will have to post that another time.

My mom also had me some flowers when I got to her house. My fav color.

This is very special. Years ago I was on a website called Clubmom.
Each day on this site you would have calendar and on that day you could post a pic. Mostly it was our kids, or grandkids but basically you could post anything.
On that site I connected with some really sweet, caring and loving ladies.
I only joined Facebook after it closed down and that was in…

Post Surgery Photos Ops

Hello. Stilling healing. Mom kidnapped me and will not let me go home till I have my week follow-up with the doc. (which should be tomorrow...but) That will be this Thursday. Ready to go home.
I did venture out around moms yard with my camera this afternoon and this is what I saw.

Dakota and Klohe decided to play.

Klohe posing. (Klohe is one of moms dogs)

The clothes line.... love it in black and white.

Gotta love the dog. My brother made this for my mom several years ago.

And this is what I call one of my funny shots... Cartoon slanted eyes!

Surgery Went Well

Usually I can't sleep before surgery. But for some reason I was able to do that Monday night. Even set the alarm on the.... good thing I stayed at moms cause she work me up. Yep, kind of hard to get up and moving when you set the alarm for  4:45 PM and not AM!

Surgery went well. Two nights in the hospital. And home today... oops...I mean home to mom's.

Health in a Nutshell Part 2 - The EYE

Well tomorrow is the day. Gastric By Pass. I have had nothing but clear liquids for two days.
I thought clear liquids were well, clear! But apparently that means liquids that light shows through. So I have been able to have my unsweet, decaf tea, beef broth and even Jello. The list of things I can have goes on and on...but I am limiting those items because of the artificial sweetener in them. Fibromyalgia is affect by those things. The Jello I am using has Aspartame in it but it is less then 2% so I am trying that.
Anyway....I will be at the hospital at 6am in the morning. And with that my new life will be here!
I was afraid that I might have to cancel the surgery.
Because Friday evening I noticed that my left eye was really red. Thinking that it was maybe allergies from all in bloom. But come Saturday when I went to the kitchen sink with the beautiful sun shining in, and had a terrible pain shoot through my eye to the back of my head....I thought maybe I needed to treat it. I went and got some Opcon A. (not m…

The Free Art Movement Find

Totally forgot to do this update. A couple weeks ago I did a post about Free Art Movement in Nashville.

Here is a pic that was posted on the Free Art Movement page in Facebook.
They found it as they were going into CICI pizza for dinner.

Yesterday Dakota went to mom's for a couple of hours while I ran some errands. It was such a pretty day that he was able to hang out in the back yard with the girls (mom's dogs).
My daughter was headed to the house so I asked if her to run to mom's and pick up Dakota up.
I get a text along with this pic that says, "I have your son, for a $1000 ransom, you can have him back"!

I went back with, "you keep him long enough and I bet you will pay me $1000 to take him back"!
I got him back and NO cash past hands!

Tuesday, Wed. and Today

I don't go out like I used to. I don't socialize like I once did. I am not always on the go or always doing like I always have done.
The Fibromyalgia takes a lot out of me.
Tuesday I was at the hospital morning till 1:30 doing a class on my surgery and pre op. Then dinner at a friends Out late playing games.

Last night dinner with other friends. Two of which I went to school with. One I met a few years ago and the son of one.

Today it caught up with me. I slept good last night but felt so worn out when I got up and started moving. Then around 1 it hit. Pure fatigue. Could not keep my eyes open. So ..... I slept the better part of the day away. Around 1 till 7:30... and yes, I will sleep again tonight.

Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. Things to be done before next Tuesday.
Do you know anyone with Fibro? How do they deal with life on days like today was for me?
