The doorbell rang and a friend delivered a huge bouquet of sunflowers. They lit up the kitchen and made me smile all afternoon. The little red roses by the couch didn't feel any competition, B had picked them with the girls as a surprise for me as I awoke from my surgery slumber. Flowers make me smile. Friends delivering flowers and food, and kind words and cards make me smile, too. Knowing that I feel like doing three loads of laundry today made me smile a lot. Eating whatever I want, including Long John Silvers, and feeling no severe pain afterwards makes me smile BIG. And watching my husband change all of the bandages on my swollen tummy without a look of total disgust made me smile the most (on the inside anyway, I was wearing the look of disgust on the outside because dang it is freaky).

So happy to hear all went well and you're starting to feel like yourself again. (My question for kidney #2, appendix and gallbladders: why are you there if you're just going to cause problems? :) )
