The upside to having surgery is that I've been overwhelmed by how many people have given me support. All the comments on my blog have meant so much to me. They truly helped me through this, especially those first few weeks.
And I have to give a special thanks to Rose of Sand in My Yarn, who sent me this bundle of knitting goodies:
Another friend who went beyond and above is my childhood best friend, Joni. We were supposed to meet in Seattle, but my doctor said I could not fly this summer. Instead, she flew from Berkeley, Calif., to spend time with her post-surgical friend.
P.S. Now that she has headed back home, I'll be catching up on all your blogs.
