I'm Alive!

I'm alive! I survived my surgery last Monday. I arrived home Tuesday evening to begin my recovery. I was doing great until Saturday and had to revisit the hospital. I really appreciate all of your visits, cards, meals and phone calls you have given me this week. As I mentioned before, I have the best family and friends ever. I love you so much!

In other news, George, Forrest and Sadie also survived this past week. They have been very supportive and helpful and have really kept the house up! Not that I doubted them.... Besides taking care of me, they were able to have some fun. On Wednesday, they went to the Halloween festival at church and on Firday, they went trick or treating with our close friends, the Ropers. It was the 14th year trick or treating with them. We began the tradition in 1994, when Forrest was three months old and Cody was two months old.

Sadie receved her eye glasses on Friday. I am such a bad mom. She had been telling me she is having a little bit of trouble seeing for almost a year, but it wasn't enough "nagging" for me to make the appointment or she would remind on the weekend or a time where I couldn't do anything about it. So, I promised her I would make the appointment by the end of the week or I would give her $50.00. Nothing like pressure to get you on track! Sadie realy thought she was going to hit the jackpot. NOT! I made the eye appointment two weeks ago and we foudn out she is a little nearsided. I couldn't believe how many letters she was missing and it made me feel just as little as those letters! I helped her pick out the glasses. She totally looks the role of a teenager. Now I need to learn how to take pictures so that there is no glare from the glasses! Any suggestions?

Again, I want to thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers on our behalf. I will be forever grateful!

Trudy, I am so glad that the surgery went well. You have been in our prayers.

Sadie looks adorable in her glasses. Beth just got glasses a month ago and it was the same story with us. She had told me for a year that she couldn't see the board. Ooops!

When you are feeling better, let's get together.

I'm glad you survived what all you went through. You are one strong woman (hear me roar!) Sadie really looks adorable in her glasses. Dad can tell you how to photograph glasses. He does it with me pretty well. We go to get Dad's test tomorrow. Let me know when you want me to bring up the cans and lids and oxygen thingies.

Sadie looks too cute!!! Megan is the only child in our family that doesn't have glasses, and she wants them so badly!!
