    Since Judith just posted about why she's been gone, I've decided to post about why I'll be gone for a couple of weeks. I don't really know how long it will be before I will be able to get back to my computer. I'm having surgery on Friday to my foot. Remember the foot I whined about this summer. Well, it's still giving me problems so the podiatrist is(hopefully) going to fix it. He's going to do some chiseling & then put in a plate so some bones will "fuse" together. I can put NO weight on my foot for 8-12 weeks after the surgery. I'm not sure when I'll feel like rolling to the computer again, hopefully in just a couple of weeks. We've already rented a wheelchair but it can't go down the hallway to the bedroom & I'm not too good on crutches, as I learned this summer. Dd is coming down for all of the kids holidays from school so she will be cooking both Thanksgiving & Christmas. I'm going to try to be spoiled but I don't know that I'll be very good at that. My best bet will be just to follow the drs instructions. Oh, btw, I think they do everything at our hospital as day surgery these days except maybe brain & heart surgery. I'll be home in my own bed Friday evening wondering when dh is going to bring me something to eat or drink.

    Goodness Judy, I'm not surprised that they will send you home - Can't believe what they do to you now days and then send you right home.

    That will be tough not putting any weight on it for that long. Tell hubby you need a laptop so it will keep you occupied while you recoup. lol

    Good luck - will be thinking about you.

    Prayers for healing are coming your way. You'll need a table that you can wheel into so you can still scrap and make cards!

    Judy, I wish you a speedy recovery and hope everything goes well. Please let your family wait on you for a change. I know that can be hard but you need the time to get back on both feet.

    Take care and will be thinking and praying for you!

    Ditto also!! Learn to be an invalid. Remember you'll have to be doing everything soon enough. Kids love waiting on you. I fell and had a major injury about 22 years ago and the middle schoolers at home waited on me hand and foot. They felt so important. So let them do it. You will need the rest.
