A big thanks to all of you for your support and prayers this week.  My surgery yesterday went well and now I'm home, recuperating and emerging from a pain-killer induced haze. I'm propped up in bed and feeling well enough to read your many emails and kind wishes.  I don't think I'll be venturing far from my bed for several hours, but am hoping to feel well enough to attend our special Thanksgiving vigil Mass at Church tomorrow.  We are still waiting for lab reports, but I feel confident that things are all good.

I truly have the world's best, most thoughtful husband, friends and family.  At times when you aren't feeling well, it's nice to know that there are so many helping hands around to pick up the pieces.  OK, it feels like the next round of pain kills are kicking in, so I'm going to sign off for now.  Hugs to all of you!
