I was scheduled to have a laparoscopic cholecystectomy this morning ( as I understand it, 4 people armed with sterile soda straws were going to remove my gall bladder and then send me on home a couple of hours later.)
We had freezing rain and light snow last night - the kind of weather that makes a New Englander blow coffee out their nose if you ask whether school is going to be called off. But I live on a mountain in Tennessee and freezing rain turns the north-facing lane up to my mailbox into an ice-hill worthy of a 40's cartoon. LSS - My surgery was re-scheduled for next Wednesday. As I imagine having a gall bladder event while holding onto the car door roadside on the winding black-ice mountain highway that leads down to the hospital in the valley I see
the wisdom of that decision.
This may be a time for me to hunker down physically for a few more days, but the gratitude for my attitude is all around, just waiting for me to express it. care to join me?
Happy Thanksgiving! Tis a Gift To Be Simple.
