After a major "redecoration" of my innards I am happy to be home again as from this afternoon.
My body has gone through big changes, but already now I can say I am very happy and very ready for the rest of my life!
The colostomy has been a big turn to the better for me already, and I have already invited the love of my life to go to the movies with me next week to see Blood Diamond, with Leonardo di Caprio.
I haven't been to the movies for several years now......
I will treat him to the tickets and he has to buy and carry the sweets :-)
I am not allowed to carry more than 1 kg (2 lbs) for 6 weeks, so no handbag or anything but the necessities in my pockets or a very small purse for now. That will be a challenge as I do not have much pain - which is great BTW!! I had more pain before surgery.
I am very grateful for all the well wishes and uplifting comments and mails I have got from all my friends around the world, and you are all worth your weight in gold :-)
I am looking forward to start working on my blocks again tomorrow morning !!
I have prepped my sewing corner so I do not have to lift more than what I am allowed to, ready for both NI blocks and applique blocks :-)
Not a stitch has been taken since Sunday evening last week. I have read some the last couple of days in the book Father's Quilt by Ed West. A cute story from the Civil War period. I have borrowed the copy I am reading from a friend.
I have a gazillion blog entries to catch up with and I am looking forward to see what you all have been up to while I have been away :-)
