Terrific Thursday

I think I've got a whole new definition of terrific. I am sitting up at the computer. It's uncomfortable, but not painful and I am typing away. This morning is a good morning. I am fully awake, had a good night's sleep, finished my smoothy and took my medications. The air conditioner is purring -- it's close to 100 degrees in New York City -- and I am savoring the cool and quiet of my apartment.

I cannot begin to thank my friends, family, colleagues, blog buddies and the many people I have met in my journey of the last few months. Just know that you are in prayers and thoughts each day. I am still waiting on the biopsy report, but I am assuming that all is well. I see my surgeon on Monday to have my stitches out and hope then to get the go-ahead to begin physical therapy. I also hope to have the go-ahead to take a long, long shower and can't wait.

I am going to use Random Generator to pick a winner of the "Iron Man" contest. I will post this either tonight or tomorrow.

Keep calm, keep cool and drink lots of lemonade! Lots of hugs from New York City!

Sounds like you are doing everything you should be especially taking it easy and keeping cool.
Sorry I missed your Iron Man contest. I am way behind with blogging.
Funny you mentioned lots of lemonade because I just made a pitcher of it for this hot afternoon.
Wish you were here we could sit on my porch and visit while sipping our lemonade.
Rest and get well

Oh dear buttercup, I know what you mean about a shower...once I was in the hospital, my daughter calls and asks if I need her to bring me anything...I said "yes, bring me a stick-up to put on top of my head !" I can't stand not getting to wash my hair after staying a long time in the hospital. Blessing to you, praying for a clear biopsy.xo, Susie

I'm reading backwards and trying to play catch-up. As mentioned in a more recent post, you sound great. Keep up the good work of getting well.
