Getting on board--again

I realize that several blogging trains have left the station without me over the last two and a half months. I even have half-way decent explanations--

In December, Atlanta has had the WORST snow in a decade and we were actually trapped in our subdivision for 4 days before a group of men from our subdivision (including my husband, son, and son-in-lawn used shovels and icepicks  to break up the ice sheet that was covering the only ingress and egress from our subdivision (geesh, how many times can I use this word in this post!)

Then in January, i was to have surgery, when it happened again--MORE *^$##@; SNOW. Surgery was canceleled and I worked from home, again.

I had a birthday at the end of January and the beginning of February saw not only my rescheduled surgery, but my youngest children, my twins, turn 19.

So I have been snowed in (and I am, like, from California, totalllly!) aged, stressed and relieved all in short order.

My surgery was to be just the removal of the right ovary, but turned into a hysterectomy. I do have the left ovary. Should be a problem hormone-wise, as the doc said my right ovary had not been working for quite a while, probably many years. The really geeky cool bit is that it was done laprascopically, by a robot (DaVinci Robot). How cool is that?? Sci-fi of my childhood operating on my timmy! AND I only have 4 little scars to show for it.

So, I tried to relax, my kids and husband took GREAT care of me and I am ready to get back on the train (wagon?) and post just little bit more often.

Oh, by the way, this is a pencil/charcoal drawing my daughter did of me. What do you think?
