On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. John 20:19-20

This Is It!

Hi friends! Here it is. The day I have been waiting for. My disk replacement surgery is happening today at 7:30 a.m. I will be home late today.


I will need two weeks to recover. The neurosurgeon wants me to sit in a recliner and relax. FOR TWO WEEKS

He does NOT want me to stitch for the first two weeks. Since the disk replacement is in my neck, I cannot hold up books to read even without causing issues truly. So I have downloaded free audio books from our library. I am finally going to check out my friends Priscilla & Chelsea on Flosstube too! 😎 I have never made time for that. Well, here we go!!

I will be getting up every 30 minutes to walk around to prevent blood clots. And I will be wearing those lovely elastic stockings to prevent blood clots too. I need to walk 4 times a day for 30 minutes also. This is all because I had a major surgery.

I thank you all for your support, care, love, and prayers! You guys are THE BEST!
This is an old freebie, but it is it is the EXACT ONE I wanted to put here for you my friends.

CLICK HERE to go to the site to get your copy of this sweet free chart. Also be sure to check out MANY, MANY other free charts posted on the right hand side of this blog! (Stasi, there are bees!)

I most likely will not be back for two weeks, so take care of yourselves.😘

Getting better and praying,
Vickie

Tiffstitch said...

I hope all goes well and you recover to feel better than before. Maybe if you get all the audiobooks and floss tube videos done you can plan out a wish list, etc. Anything to keep yourself busy and from stitching. Fingers crossed!

diamondc said...

Vickie: I am so happy your day has come.
I hope all went well and you are not in no pain.
What a great idea to have books on tape.
Years ago you would have been in the hospital on recovery for a long time.
It will be good to recover at home.

Blessings
Catherine

I expect it is all over now and you are relaxing in your hospital suite or maybe even back at home.
Hope you can manage to read emails or there will be large backlog of well wishes in two weeks time!
