Doctors, Doctors, everywhere
Back again after spending the better part of the day taking our daughter for out patient surgery on her right eye. It is not latix but surgery to try and decrease extreme dry eye that she has suffered for years. This will be the second surgery in the last couple of years but they have had great results with it and we hope it will work good for her.
While waiting for her in surgery I wandered into the hospital gift shop and they were putting out all their Christmas stuff. I found this little guy and I thought he would go good with my other bits in Florida. When I went to pay for him I found he was 40% off because he was last year's stock. Even better. You can't see it in the picture but his head bobs around. He has the cutest face. Love those gift shops. They usually have some neat stuff.
After we got her home and settled I had to leave and go to my oncologist to talk about my latest surgery. It was cancer, early 1st. stage and confined only to the polyp. They removed 17 lymph nodes and they were all clear. He determined no other treatment necessary except to keep a watch on me and see and another colonoscopy next summer. He did do a couple of blood tests today and I will get the results in a couple of days. Hopefully no surprises.
I am back to feeling almost normal with just a few twinges in that area. I go to the surgeon on Wed. and if all is well we will leave for Florida Sat. I am going to start packing tomorrow and deciding what I will take with me this year. Always my threads and beads but will cut way down on other stuff. Can always buy fabric down there. The flea market always has laces if I need any. I should catch up on my other embroideries.
I have not done anything the last couple of weeks. Just hard to put my mind to it. I am packing my knitting needles and may do a little of that. I can make hats for the cancer group or baby hats for the hospital newborns so will have something to do.
I probably will not be posting until I get settled in Florida then maybe I can get back to posting regularly and leaving comments.
