I'm Baaaaa-aaaaack!


I'm all better! Yay!

(doing a little clappy-happy dance)

I still have a little way to go.
Lots more cardio-rehab.
The ginormous bowl of medicines on my night table isn't going anywhere.

But more or less...I'm doing GREAT!!!!

No more leaky heart!

Before I show you more cookies,
I'd like to be a little bit serious for just a minute if you don't mind....

When you hear something serious from a doctor,
something that you know is going to affect you and your family,
it's scary.

It's really, really scary.
And that's okay.

I had to learn that.
(it's one of the many things I've learned)
I had to tell myself over and over again.
It's okay to be scared.

Because....when you're scared, and you let yourself say it out loud....

"I'm Scared"
"I Need Help"

.....something happens.

The people around you, the ones that love you, hold you up.

They hold your hand,
give you a hug,
make you laugh when you want to cry.

And the scared bit....starts to get a little smaller everyday.

Pretty soon....I wasn't crying with fear, or pain.
Almost everyday there were tears of gratitude.

There will never be enough words to thank the friends and family who have taken care 
of me and my boys over the past few months.

I have so many stories to tell you about them all, 
and I can't wait to celebrate them and their generosity.

Thank you to all of you too.

For sticking around and waiting for me to return.
For the overwhelming amount of emails expressing your concern.
For the countless prayers and well-wishes.

I'm a very lucky girl.

All these cookies were baked the day before my surgery.
I packaged them up in three big batches 
and my husband brought them in for the nurses every other day.

Nothing like bribing the lovely ladies in charge of the pain meds.

Which reminds me...

Time to find that big red bowl.

Hugs and kisses to everyone!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B
