My desk is proudly displaying all my gorgeous Get Well cards. Sadly I can't submit a picture of my desk as I can't bend to insert my camera card into the computer so I need to show them from the individual photos my daughter took for me and loaded on my computer pictures file.
When I was trying to think of what creations I could post here to share with you, I really struggled to find anything.
I had thought I would whip up a couple of cards so I could create posts to showcase those. Unfortunately, I was not able to get them made in time. Drat!
Then I had a light bulb moment...no more worrying...I'm saved! I can post my Get Well cards and I am going to show them on 7 numbered posts that are being created to share some sweet, but funny moments that occurred on each of the 7 days I was in hospital.
The first night post-op, I was released to my room at around 9 or maybe 10 pm. Even though it was a work night for DD, she picked him up and they drove into the city together. I think it was a one and a half hour drive into the city, they stayed a good hour and then another one and a half hour drive back home. It was even longer for her as she wanted to come and pick him up. I hate to think of how tired she must have been at work the next day!
I remember a lovely visit with the two of them. I was delighted to see them and was thrilled the operation was all over. They seemed so distraught so I recall telling them it was not as bad as I had expected, and clarified the pain was tolerable and to stop worrying. I do remember my mouth was dry (I think from the anesthetic) and so I had to work at forming the words.
They remember coming to visit and my pain was so bad I could not even talk or form words! My poor daughter posted on facebook that she had never seen me is so much pain! Oh my ...I felt badly when I came home and read that on facebook. In reality, I fell asleep after they left, marveling that I was falling asleep in a bed, on my side, for the first time in 4 years. All in all, that first day truly was quite special!.
My daughter was smiling as she pushed 2 fat little envelopes through the bars of the bed rails. Little Miss C had told her they needed to chose a card from her stash as she wanted to give me one of her own cards. I was smiling as I took them from her hands as I knew fat envelopes usually contain handmade
cards. Here is my favourite...it is one of those "no sentiment cards" that do well for the stash box as you can turn them into "all occasion cards"
You all know by now that DD does not like her families full pictures or names on my blog. This next shot only shows the last 2 letters of Little Miss C's name as I wanted you to see that she learned all about periods that day and was quite excited to show me that she knew not to have a floating period. Today she learned that periods never float and always follow a word or a thought!!! I was grinning and thinking that the next day they probably learned about how they anchor sentences.
Oh, she is a girl after my own heart. I'm sure I can sometimes drive you all crazy with my overuse of periods and exclamation marks. I can't seem to blog without them...everything seems so formal without them! Somehow it seems that when I use them, you can see more of the non blogging me...that I love to have a natter, that I love to giggle,that I am a worrier, and that while I can be a bit "anal" about certain things...that I take great joy from being organized and can't relax if things get out of hand. Without them, I think I portray myself as this "stick up her butt lady" who has a control freak personality.
Keep in mind that I am fairly drugged right now ( and tired) so these next few posts will be minus my usual triple checks of spelling, grammar and sentence structure etc.
Hopefully your interest is piqued to pop over to Julia's blog to see some actual desks in action! http://stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/
Hope you will stop by tomorrow for my next post, Day 2 - The Big Move
This post will reveal the hidden joys of moving to a private room and showcase my next door neighbours gorgeous card!
