BARELY A SUPERHERO

Our blog friend Brighid sent this to me a few weeks ago and this morning I wrote her a "thank you" and gave her an update.  Thought I would share that note with you all to tell what has been happened as I prepared for my hip replacement.  Here is my note to her:

Brighid,

I loved this so much but I bet you didn't know when you sent it to me that it would even have more meaning down the road.  My hip replacement was scheduled for this past Wednesday (5-20-15).  On Tuesday they called  me that they were late receiving the lab results from May 4th and I have a UTI. (They did apologize for the mix up at the lab.)  Had to start me on antibiotics and reschedule surgery to first available which is July 1st.!!!!! It was very frustrating since I had lost the weight required plus my family was all lined up to be with me at the hospital and for two weeks following surgery.  My daughter and granddaughter had already arrived and my brother and sil were on the way when the word came that it was being rescheduled.  I am trying to dwell on the positives instead of the negatives but haven't reached superhero status yet.
By the way, I reached my goal weight on May 13th*.  This will give me the opportunity to go even further before the next surgery date. 
Now that I have written this to  you, I think I will post it on my blog for an update. 
Thanks again for thinking of me with the neat meme:-)
Annie



*P.S. Nobody guessed May 13th for the weight loss date but Munir of Focus did say "sometime next month" so I guess she qualifies as the winner of the scrubbies.  Just need to hear from you Munir with your mailing information.  Congratulations!!

Can you tell that Slim forgot to put out the
 "Do Not Disturb" sign?

Sleeping peacefully.
I couldn't resist taking a picture but Slim wasn't too happy about it.

WHAT IS HEALING

Question Of The Week, 3-23-15




What makes you feel better, revenge 
or forgiveness?


I once read an article that said getting revenge is better for your health than forgiving. 

Think of:
terrorists
traitors
pedophiles
corrupt politicians
rapists
thieves
bullies
cheaters

Then put on them the faces of people you know and love.
