I had my post-op today. I'm healing, but due to blood loss/anemia, I won't be back to 'normal', meaning regular energy level, for another 3-4 weeks.
My lovely, wonderful friend J scooped up my girls to spend the night with her family and said she'd see me after dinner tomorrow. The girls were thrilled and I am grateful.
Kindness, and love, and friends. That's how I get through.
