Gratitude Sunday

This Sunday I am so grateful for so many things. One of which is being able to eat, as portrayed above!  (Grin)

God has blessed me so much -- I have good results on my tests, I have good friends who care, and I am feeling better!

Last week was pretty scary, starting with an over-ten-hour-first-time-ever-gall-bladder-attack . . . then tests and ultrasounds and more tests.  (I could swear that I heard maniacal laughter in the hallway just before the med tech stuck her head in the door and said, "We need to draw some MORE blood!")  Long story short, they think that a large stone passed through the teensy-tiny duct and is gone now. Yay!! Now if the bloodwork in ten days is OK, the crisis is past. What an answer to prayer!

Many, many thanks to all of you for your kindnesses, your positive thoughts, and your prayers and virtual hugs. You all mean so much to me, and I am so grateful for each and every one of you.

I'm getting rested up, and things will be back to normal soon . . . we'll even have the giveaway that we mentioned last week, too! 

Love,




PS While you are looking at blogs today, stop by at my sister's blog, and wish her a happy birthday! (Grin)

  5. I'm glad your doing better! I've been thinking about you.
    My Dad had a gallbladder attack years ago and could see firsthand they aren't fun! He had to have his removed. Again, I'm glad you're better and hope you continue to get better and betterer! :)
