On the day of my first surgical follow-up appointment I started down the back stairs to the car and was met with the sight of my new pond. I just cried. He hadn't told me he had put it in, it was his secret. In fact, he was upset that it wasn't completely finished before I saw it. No matter what, this really meant more to me than anything else he could have done. He knew I would never make it back out in the garden to work this year and wanted so badly to give me what I wanted. I honestly have the best husband in the world. We don't fight. Sure I may get upset sometimes but I think it out and get over it. I learned long ago that life isn't worth fighting over. It doesn't solve anything and only tends to push you apart. We talk things out and obviously it works. It will be 30 years this year. He is my rock. I never would have made it through my health issues let alone my mom's. She is a six year breast cancer survivor but found out three weeks before my surgery that she had colon cancer. We got her in and out of the hospital before my surgery and we both had the same health care nurses, the Thorne Group of Youngwood. I have to say, if it weren't for them, I don't know how I would have been able to go through my surgery and recovery without knowing that she was being well cared for. They are the best!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. Eventually I will catch up and add some jewelry pics. For now, I'll recover and just feel blessed to be alive and doing well. I have my mom by my side which is a miracle in itself. One more month and who knows where the cancer would have been. It was divine intervention that got her to have that test when she did. Even the doctor who performed the test was astonished when the results came back. She was stage 1. No lymph node involvement. That alone is a miracle.
May all of you be blessed with good health and happiness!
