Over the last week I’ve had many reasons to smile.
#1 the dreaded knee operation on my meniscus is now behind me. The pain leading up to the operation had become unbearable at times and kept me awake most nights. I am pleased to report the operation went well and so far so good. Only time will tell if it is a success but I remain positive and am back on my diet to lose weight and lighten the load. I’ll be walking with crutches for at least a month and next week I begin two months intensive physiotherapy to rebuild strength in the knee.
The other smiles of the week include a good friend invited us round for a delicious lunch and we had our belated New Year’s celebration. PLUS, she gave me a lovely ‘get well’ gift. A painting of a mother and baby penguin. She painted the picture herself so it was extra special.
Another smile is the birthday present from my sister which started its journey early December finally arrived. The original order went astray but thankfully Amazon resent another order. I was delighted when I opened my present as it was two books on mosaics!! I’m now itching to start one of the projects.
And I also received a Get Well card from my son and family in the UK.
