Falling in Love

I'm alive! Surgery went well, recovery....well that wasn't my favorite.  I was out of commission for a week. It wasn't fun.  My family was nice enough to let me have a mattress in the middle of the living room so I didn't miss out on any fun. (and also because I wasn't supposed to do stairs for the first little bit) but there I laid, not very coherent for about 3 days.  But I do remember my tummy hurting. Why? Well I got stabbed 4 times.

I had a great surgeon and the nurses at the surgical center were great.  I took to the anesthesia like a champ, I didn't even make it to the operation room before I was out.

Sorry if that's a little too much skin. But I thought it looked cool and I would be curious what someone else's tummy looked like.  Those looked good then but once I took off the badges after a week they weren't so cool.  Just 4 little incisions, count your blessings right.

 Luckily I prescribed pain killers and those knocked me out. Thus not being coherent the first little bit.  While I laid there on my death bed, I was well taken care of.  Mr. J Wing and my fabulous mother pretty much catered to my every need.

This picture was taken after I was woken up by Dinah touching my forehead expecting me to feel cold. She thought I looked dead!  I think I look like death warmed over.

Now I feel great.  The surgery worked.  I can eat and feel no pain.  I love it and appreciate food more.  It's amazing what doctors can do.  I will now live the rest of my life with out a gall bladder.

I had a wonderful summer and then Fall has been a dream.  BYU games, babies, State Fair, beautiful colors, and lots more.

I've made a goal to blog at least 3x a week.  So I'll post some more pictures in the future but here are some yummy fall colors.

Seriously can I live here?

And speaking of falling in love.....

Meet Mr. Wing.
