Where Flowers Bloom…



screen-shot-2017-01-07-at-7-07-58-pmHello Friends,  I have a rather quick card for you this week as I am still in recovery mode from Balloon Sinuplasty Surgery and what you see above is about all I could muster up. The doctor assured me that this procedure would be life changing and make my Chronic Sinus issues so much better, and I am going to hold him to his word!  The surgery was a success (so they say), despite the O.R. being 3 1/2 hours behind schedule and at the hospital for nearly ten hours for an outpatient procedure, getting completely sick from the anesthesia, and having a heck of a time coming to in the recovery room. The finally kicked me out at 6 o’clock.  I think they thought I weighed 240 lbs. instead of 140, as this girl did not want to wake up.  I am anxious to go for my follow-up on Monday as I’m not feeling so well as of yet.  I was back to work on Tuesday, since we had Monday off for President’s Day and to say it’s been a long short week, would be an understatement.   Okay, you didn’t stop by to read me whine now did you?  Sorry about that!

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and join us for Photo Week, the team and our guest Michele have done an amazing job!  Thanks for being with us this month Michele…we have enjoyed it and hope you have too!  The card was made with stamps/dies from Verve. The larger leaf die is from SU???…..but don’t hold me to it!

Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’
