Okay, so it's been a few days since I have posted. Let me see if I feel any different from the pins and needles of Friday's post. No, not really. I think the whole numb feeling will pass in time, but it's a funky and wierd feeling and I don't like it. BUT, this feeling didn't hold me back from attending the annual auction at my daughter's school on Saturday night. Here I am all dressed up with my new do, while still sporting one drain, hidden under my size 2x top. I had a blast at the school auction; HOWEVER I paid the price the next day. I was exhausted, tired, cranky and very sore. Thank God, for Gary and Brenda, who came over with dinner all prepared and pitched in with the girls and helped Mike work on the girls' SkyFort!! I watched Brenda play with my kids and wished I had the energy to do that. I enjoyed seeing them happy and carefree. Here's a picture of Brenda doing some planting with them. One of the many things I am grateful for is my friends. I cherish them and could not be managing my recovery as well as I am without them (and Mike).
