SURGERY UPDATE, Getting Back to Stampin' Up...

It's been a long month!  Unfortunately, surgery did not go as expected.  At the last second, the anesthesiologist put the kabosh on the expected laparoscopic operation.  Instead, they did a full abdominal surgery which meant I was in the hospital longer and recovery will take a lot longer.  I have also been back in the hospital a couple of times since then.  Ugh!  I have been on a wound vac for the last couple of weeks as my incision opened back up.  Not sure how much longer that will be - could be up to another month, but they keep saying it is looking good, so I am hopeful.

I still have a long road ahead of me with radiation coming up as well.  However, I am feeling better now and can sit up for short periods.  I've been keeping up with orders, product shares, retired 4 sale, and emails as that is easier to do with my laptop and help from my daughter.  And I am starting to plan some classes, so look for those to be added soon.  I am hoping to get back to a little stamping and posting this week.  Fingers crossed!

Thanks so much for all the emails and prayers!  It is deeply appreciated.
