Friday- OK Did I Really Just Have Surgery?

Well the answer is YES. I mean it's obvious when I look down and see the tops of my legs, they have been missing for years. Then of course there are these four drains hanging from my belly to remind me as well.
Can I just say my thighs are HUGE, I mean HUGE.

I never really noticed before because they were buried by my belly. I can't believe I am actually showing you a picture of my thigh. Now if only I thought exercise would trim these up, I am afraid that loose skin is gonna need a knife and surgeon to fix them. Oh well.
So I am feeling WONDERFUL. I am not in much pain, on that pain scale, you know the one with smiley faces from 0-10I would have to say I barely hit the 3-4 stage. OK this morning when I woke up and tried to walk to the bathroom it was a 7-8, but other than that I have been good.
I had a couple visitors today. Cathy from church came and brought me lunch. A Chicken salad from Boston Market, it was delicious.
Then Cliff and Nanci stopped by, they were so excited to see the "new me' and Nanci just got some new clothes today from JC Penneys and all I can say is I love everything she got. And it was all buy one get one free. I so want to go shopping.
We had some pretty bad thunder storms today, in fact my Aunt Dorothy actually had a tree fall through her roof today. No one was hurt but it did quite a bit of damage. We just lost our power for a couple minutes, so not too bad here.
I guess that's about all from me tonight. I think I'll get ready for bed. Have a wonderful night everyone and sweet dreams.
