Back again

Thank you all for your good wishes for the surgery! Its hard to believe that almost 2 weeks have passed already ~ I think I was in a big of a fog last week and the days slipped by. The surgery went well - 4 hours of it, although the doctor was not able to do it with the small incisions and had to go for the large one to get all the disease cleared up. Which meant a couple extra days in the hospital and a slower recovery at home. I'm finally able to sit at the computer a little more comfortably, although I made sure I was able to get into a stitching position as soon as possible. Well important things have to come first!

I hope to start visiting blogs and get some more stitching mojo back. I've just been picking at a few different projects here and there without really making any progress on anything.

We had our Thanksgiving Day on Monday and although we missed getting to our cottage for our annual feast, Carrie and our new son-in-law JF cooked an amazing dinner for us. Why is it food always tastes so much better when someone else cooks it?

Here is a picture I snatched from Carrie's facebook page of our cottage - the back end of it! So pretty - I miss seeing all the beautiful colours up north.

Yay! Welcome back! I sent you an email about your RR--I frogged out some stuff I did, and am re-stitching, but the good thing is I'm on vacation, so I should finish up by late next week.

I'm glad you're feeling better!

I'm glad that your procedure went well. I guess Thanksgiving in Canada is very different than US Thanksgiving. Ours isn't til next month. The cottage is beautiful...it looks like a wonderful getaway.

I'm so glad to hear that your feeling much better...I'm sure the surgery and trying to get back to normal is no fun...I know what it felt like after a c-section, which is nothing compared to 4 hours of them picking and poking on top of it....Take care! Thinking of you!

I'm so happy that you are on the road to recovery! Maybe you can get in some stitching time during your rest and recuperation :)

And your cottage looks absolutely lovely!

It's so good to have you back, Wendy, and I'm so glad the surgery went well.
No wonder you miss fall at your cottage. It's breathtaking!

Take care, and good luck with everything.

Glad to see you back and to hear that you're starting to feel a bit better. Make sure you take care of yourself and don't rush the healing time. The picture of the cottage was beautiful, what a shame to have to miss it. Oh well, you'll just have to try and spend extra time there next year to make up for it.
