Just a Quick Note

I apologize for my distinct lack of communication lately, but I have had other issues on my mind. I am scheduled to undergo laparoscopic surgery tomorrow. Without going into detail, I have always had issues with severe monthly pain and hopefully this surgery is a step on the road to recovery. I go into the hospital tomorrow at noon and I should be home by supper time. I hope it all goes smoothly.

As soon as I am feeling up to it, I will be back to blogging as I have a bunch I want to write about. I bought a serger (my first) and I have a bunch of finished garments I want to show you all. Talk to you soon.

Shannon take care of yourself. I can verify that it's very easy to think you can do it and end up doing too much. Hope this solves your issues. g

Good luck tomorrow - I hope everything goes smoothly. Take care of yourself and don't do too much once you get home.

I just went through exactly the same type of surgery. Feel free to exchange notes. Hope it all goes well!

I hope the surgery goes well. Take care of yourself, and here's hoping you'll be all better soon.

Hope your surgery goes well. Don't overdo it and you'll feel better sooner.
Thanks for posting your spreadsheet. I made one today. How long it takes me to get my whole collection posted, or if I even can is the question.

Wishing you success with your procedure and a speedy recovery.

Hope it goes well for you. Take care of yourself

Sarah said...

My friend had similar surgery a few years ago and says it was one of the best things she ever went in for. I hope it solves your problems, too.

Looking forward to reading and seeing the new posts!

And me to the list of people who are wishing you well tomorrow! Please check back in and let us know that all is well! Don't make me get on a plane and come check on you because you know if I have to do that I will...and some of your fabric just might go missing! :)

Seriously though my thoughts and prayers will be with you tomorrow!

Sigrid said...

Wish you well and hope for a quick recovery. Take a good bit of rest afterwards.

Theresa said...

Hope you are Ok-be gentle with yourself for a little bit and then you can get back to the things you love

Isabelle said...

Take good care, Shannon! You'll be in my thoughts. Hope all goes well.

LauraLo said...

I keep my fingers crossed for you! take good care and be well, I'm thinking of you...

I hope all goes smoothly tomorrow. Take care of yourself so that you can get back to teaching and sewing soon!

Shannon - same issue; same surgery in November. If it's anything like my situation (and I am much, much, ahem, older and less in shape than you appear to be), you'll be up on your feet in no time. Sending healing thoughts your way.

Michelle said...

I'll be praying for an uncomplicated surgery and a fast recovery!

I had my gallbladder yanked out a few months ago. Its not too bad at all...although I woke up from the anesthesia with a horrible case of drymouth - then the nursing staff gave me crackers...thanks.

I'll be thinking about you this afternoon. I hope you'll soon let us know the results. I miss you already and look forward to seeing the completed garments!

Good luck with your surgery!

I look forward to seeing what you've been working on whenever you're recovered enough to share them with us

Julie said...

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers! Hope all goes well.

Tell us about your serger when you have time-I would like to buy one in the new year.

Dawn said...

Hope everything goes okay and that your recovery is quick!!

You'll LOVE your serger.

Marguerite said...

Shannon, Take it easy after the surgery. Rest and don't worry about getting too much done in any regard. We'll be thinking of you.

I wish you a speedy recovery. I had a "lap" about 6 years ago and was glad I had it. I was back on my feet in a couple of days, but everyone is different, so just take it easy and let others take care of you.

marty said...

Sending well wishes your way for a speedy recovery. Am looking forward to hearing more about your serger. I got my first one in 2001 and upgraded in 2002 which was a surprise from DH. I love it for lots of reasons. Merry Christmas and Blessings for the New Year.

Cherie said...

Good luck with that surgery, and we'll be waiting to see the "bunch" you teased us with!

Tany said...

I hope everything went smoothly and well. I share your problem: monthly pains, headaches and nausea.
