Christmas Dinner

Happy Holidays Friends. I wanted to give you a quick update on my surgery, and share some pictures with you. I came through my surgery with flying colors...everything was fine. I ended up having my ovary removed, because the cyst was so large and had grown into the ovary. I am old, so one ovary is sufficient. I was told that I am still able to have a baby. HAHA...that made me laugh. The recovery has been harder than I anticipated....I thought I'd be up and around in a day or two, but that hasn't happened. I am hoping that tomorrow will be the day when I get up and get a few things done. I also had a small growth removed from my inner thigh.....It was causing me some pain, so they removed and biopsied it. I get the results in a few days, but the doctor thinks that and the cyst are both benign. Thank The Lord that my Family is so good to me. I get waited on like I'm the queen!! Please enjoy the pictures of my family taken a couple of days before my surgery. My sons GF Jenny is spending the Holidays in Vermont with her family, so we had a family dinner with her before she left!!
My baby Brad and his Girlfriend Jill. Her dress is gorgeous...the bottom is on the picture to see the fabulous detail!!
Dust and Jenny!! Jenny's dress is the most beautiful shade of purple and black. Lovely!!!
Brad and Jill doing their Toddlers and Tiaras impression for me. Brads is pretending to be a little angry, and Jill loves to ham it up!!!
Have a wonderful day,, and thanks for your well wishes.
xxoo Valarie
