Yes, I took it myself with my not so trusty little Kodak! Yes, it's a wee blurry..but you get the idea...

What a great day this was! My CT scan came out negitive, NO blockage! NOTHING is wrong with me...I am fine! Getting better every single day.

I am SO pleased! They called and said my test was fine and dandy!.....The doctor put me on a triple dose of Zantac, and will see me on Monday. I am fine. He thinks I ate too much at one time and said to stick to small servings of easy to digest food for a bit longer. Last night and today were fantastic. The surgery is no problem...healing wonderfully AND my tum feels great! I think I will live! :) At least for a while longer. :) I even went out and pulled some weeds..packed away some more Halloween. Even went to garage sales this morning and found something I have been searching for a long time. I'll share it tomorrow! YIPPEE!! :)

Have a wonderful Sunday...
and lotsa hugs!

Happy Saturday Mona!
Wonderful Blessing Day for you:
I am so thrilled that everything is fine. The CT Scan showed no blockage. Praise God sweetie. Praise God.

Now don't over do things. Out there pulling weeds, I don't know if the Dr. said you could do that. Take it east. Remember to not over do things. Take it slow for awhile.

I am so happy for you. Love the pic by the way. Beautiful smile.

Stop by and say hi. Country hugs, Sherry

Bless your heart...I am just so so glad you are "out of the woods" and getting strong enuf to wanna pull weeds!!

Hey Mona! Glad all is well.

(I'm an office manager the medical field.) Things usually get stressful when employees get crazy. When I went back to work after surgery we had a looney nurse who ended up getting fired. Things are starting to calm down but the damage is done and my nerves are whacked!!

Hugs! Look forward to see what you got at the yard sale.

We just walked in from a glorious day at Shipshewana---way up north in the state, lots of Flea Markets and Antiques stores, etc., with the lighting of the town streets with all the lovely Christmas lights, plus we had one of those delicious Amish Farmhouse dinners.

This was the first thing I saw on my board, and it just capped the day!!

I'm SO pleased at your progress and your recovery!!
