The girls are great! :)

Hi all!  Just wanted to let you know that I had my surgery a week ago tomorrow. The tin cans are gone!  All went exactly as planned, with no complications!  The recovery has been pretty easy!  Phew!  Praise God for that!

I had 1 day of post-surgery pain, but with the help of pain medications, I got through it with no problem.  After only a few more days, I was able to move from the heavy duty meds to only tylenol, and then after only another day or so, I was able to stop pain meds all together.

So now I just have to be careful to behave myself…no lifting, straining.  I even have to be careful not to hug too hard.  Haha!

All in all, I am overjoyed!  This was a huge step for us.  This surgery was the last big event in my treatment. Yes, I will have infusion treatments until August and medications for several years, and possibly some touch-up surgeries, but for the most part, we are done!

This was my welcome home after surgery! Imagine my sweet girlfriends Lori, Jody, Shawna and Margo running around my front yard decorating! Tears filled my eyes as I pulled up in my car to behold this sight!

Of course, I have reflections that I will look forward to sharing with you soon.  But for now, I just wanted you to know that all is well, and I am beyond grateful!

Thank you for your endless prayers and support!
