Thank You and Pecan Pie

So many special get well thoughts from my online friends.   Wish you were near - my little cottage would
be full.
What would I do without you
you are the wings beneath my feet
and you bring tears of thankfulness
to my eyes.

Thank you for listening and all your special advice.

Today there is a early morning appointment with my surgeon.  A list of questions to ask.  The number one - is this pain normal?   I do not have much to compare it with - the emergency gall bladder 3 years ago and I did not even know I had one.   Then appendix surgery 30 years ago,  a torn cartilage in my knee from gardening and then my 4 children.   That is not much but at the moment I am thinking this is the most painful but then maybe as time goes by we forget.

I am taking the wonderful rural transportation car to doctor's office and a friend will meet me there and bring me home.   She wanted to come and get me but I am so aware she has continual help for a bedridden husband and thought one way for her would be enough.

My first born daughter - My Laurie lives  in Florida, she sent a picture of the pecan pie she made.   My recipe of over 30 years.  Always comes out beautiful.   Will be nice to serve her in laws who are visiting.

Will check back in tomorrow and let you know what kind of report I was given.

Blessings sent to all of you.

May you each be Happy
May you each be Well
May you each be Safe
May you each be at Peace

Hate that you have to go through this. Hate that you are alone, going through this. Hope the surgeon doesn't poke around too much and make it hurt more. Know that by spring time, you will feel well and be able to enjoy your gardens and your woods.

It's good to hear you have an appointment today and will get answers to your questions. You have so much in your favor, Ernestine ~ you are strong and take good care of yourself. February will be your month to recover, and then spring will return.

Hi Ernestine,
It seems we always feel better, when we find out that things are progressing as they should.Sometimes we feel better as soon as we get to the Doctor's office. I hope that your appt. is successful and that all your questions are answered. How wonderful to have transportation like that and a friend to bring you home. I'll be thinking of you this morning. Take care, my friend...Balisha (HUGS)
