11 Days Gone By

11 days have gone by since I had surgery. For the first time in five years I am pain free. I can't describe how wonderful it feels. This afternoon I go for my post surgery check-up. I hope today is the day they remove the staples. Those 23 little buggers are irritating!
I missed the Bead & Button show. Heather had a booth this year. Her Humblebeads look delightful filling the white dishes as part of her display. My son Ray couldn't resist the five hour drive to Milwaukee to visit with his sister. I can't wait to hear the tales Rosanne and Heather will share of their show experience.

I had a few beady surprises of my own last week. Sally picked up these beautiful ceramic Raku flower at Turquoise Coyote.

Rosanne sent these wonderful ceramic pendants created by Nancy of Round Rabbit.

Thanks to all who sent well wishes and prayers.
I am working on getting back into the swing of things.

I am so glad you are now pain free. I cannot believe how long you have suffered with this and I am so so happy to hear good news!

I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better Bev. We missed you at Bead & Button! Being in Heather's booth was tons of fun, and I feel very fortunate that she didn't kick me out! And meeting your sister Rosanne was a special treat. Rest up! Enjoy the day! Erin

Glad to hear that you are doing much better - it's been a long road. It was different not seeing your smile at the show, but a hug from Heather and words with Rosanne were good. Heather's booth was nice and bright - very nice.

Stay healing!!

Thank you all for the well wishes. The staples came out yesterday. Yahoo what a difference. Now I just have to be careful not to lift anything heavy yet.

Erin I was looking forward to meeting you this year. Next year I will be at the Bead & Button show!
Liz I am jealous of all those crystals I saw you bought on facebook!

Hope you are feeling better! I have never been to the B&B show, myself... Maybe I will make it there at some point in my lifetime!

Wish I would have known sooner that you were having surgery, Bev. But I am so glad to hear that you are feeling and doing so well.

Please take good care of yourself!
