Hello. It is Monday, and I am determined to write a little more this week. Our appointment with the surgeon has been changed to Monday, the 20th. He is sick this week (imagine that--I thought that doctors and mothers weren't ALLOWED to get sick!). We have still been talking to friends, and trying to get some insights about possible surgeons.
I have eaten a couple of things--a peanut butter cookie yesterday and another cookie last night. I complained to my niece, Melanie Wellman, that I was eating junk food and not good stuff--and she asked me how smoothly I thought a piece of celery would go down. She does have a point there! I am funny--I was also able to snack on some Fritos with Spence yesterday--it's funny how chips and crackers go down, but there again I am missing out on the nutrition.
I had another busy Sunday yesterday--the whole block, and then back for a fireside--getting there early to try to get a good seat, and then there for about 2 1/2 hours. I just crashed when I got home! I have done a little Christmas wrapping and some more cards (the never-ending Christmas task).
When people ask me how I am, I actually feel pretty good. I just still am working on building up my energy, and that is a day-to day thing. I am thankful for breaks that I take...and for music and for my family that can often make me laugh. Laughter is one of the best ways to make you feel better. May you have much to laugh about today, and may you remember like my sister says, every day is a gift. Love to all, Louise
