Our last day of school was Wednesday. It was a great end to an excellent school year! However, I realized I missed more days of school this year than any year of my 20 years of teaching all because of my gallbladder. I saw the surgeon on Thursday and he agreed my gallbladder needed to be removed ASAP. I was begging for sometime next week, but he could do even better--he scheduled me for surgery the next day!
The surgery went well--ahead of schedule. I got lots of attention from the nurses as there were not many surgeries on the docket for the Friday before Memorial Day Weekend. I arrived at 11:15am and was home by 4pm including the hour drive home. I only needed ibuprofen for pain. Aside from my incisions, I already feel better having my gallbladder out. My doctor thinks I should be back to eating normally in two weeks and be able to attend my week long training in Denver in mid-June
I spent Saturday in bed, but managed to start embroidering this sheep and finished reading my first book of summer. I think I will remain in bed today and keep working on my sheep for Slow Sunday Stitching. Check out what everyone else is up to here
I wanted to share this sweet end of the year present I received. It was all in an adorable summery box which included a journal that says "Queen Bee," a monogrammed mug, a Starbucks gift card, and the dahlia plant. So thoughtful!
This week, I hope to feel up to sitting at my sewing machine and working on my Scrap Dance Tango project. I am also supposed to host my book club on Thursday and I hope I can pull that off with some help from making pulled pork in my crockpot and making my hubby clean the house.
Have a great week!
