How lucky am I? Just got home from the hospital yesterday, and today I received a beautiful hand-painted card from my friend, Laurie Kansky! Just one of the many perks of being in the painting world!
The surgery went well - right now I have the most god-awful sore throat (from them going in the front, and moving everything around) that I hope will dissapate soon, and of course, the dreaded "collar" that has to be on my neck 24/7 for 6 weeks! Trying to sleep in it is a trick in itself!
Don't know if I'll be painting anytime soon -- we'll just have to see after this sore throat thing ends. Anyway -- thank you all for all your prayers and good wishes! It definitely helped!
