So almost two weeks ago I had my gall bladder removed. I was not excited about it but, ya know, it was necessary. My surgeon told me I should take 2 weeks off of work but I was determined that 3 days would do it. I was wrong. He was right. Tomorrow will be the two weeks point and I am finally feeling better. Not all the way back with the energy and I still feel a little pain in two of the incisions but holy crap it feels like it’s been a long time.
Now I had the surgery on Monday and Tuesday Lousmith had to run to Toronto until Friday. I was sad about it but I did have Ryan to take care of me. The photo above is of my Wednesday breakfast. That is love right there. Notice the 1/3 of a pound of butter spread so nicely on that bread. Love from a five year old. You really can’t beat pretzels for breakfast. I have to be honest here. On Wednesday I was feeling a little sick to my stomach and asked for a slice of bread for breakfast. He was just following my requests.
Before I went to the hospital on Monday I thought hard about what I should work on while I was recovering. I knew there would be pain medication and the projects I have in progress wouldn’t work. I had just finished spinning some lovely yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts Fiber. It is a blend of merino and mohair. I bought the top from The Fold booth at SOAR last year. I stepped out of my usually box with the colors but I love them.

Yay for feeling better!
And Yay Maggie on your baptism! My recently dyed hair turned the water blood red when I went for my dunk, most embarassing.
Cherry matcheless you say…
I’ve been wondering where you’ve been! Glad to hear you’re feeling better, though. My Mom had her gall bladder out a few years ago and it took her longer, too, before she felt like herself. Longer than SHE expected, that is!
Maggie looks fabulous in her baptism dress! Congratulations!
Chelcea is a fabulous model.
I am glad to hear you are getting better. Remember, I told you it will take really 4 weeks to recover enough to feel strong enough to wirk. Do not overdo your time in the store, we want you well and happy!
OMG. that scarf is so cute. in fact I just saw an actress who portrays an upper east side socialite thirtysomething wearing the exact same thing on Gossip Girl
Beth! Hope you are well on the road to a mend. That butter probably did the trick.
Chelsea looks wonderful in that ruffle scarf.
Hey! Happy birthday and you know, stuff! Like feel better and bread with loads of butter!
Look at the gorgeous Chelsea.
Love to all,
Glad to hear you’re on the mend!
Maggie looks beautiful! 🙂
The Ruffled Scarf looks amazing on Chelsea. The style really suits her.
I envy you that wonderful breakfast of pretzels and buttered bread. My compliments to your chef for that amazing meal. (I showed my hubby the picture and told him to take notes!)
