No Pictures Today

No pictures today - no fun adventures - no exciting new bird views - I've been brought down by a bird photo.  Well, not brought down - but sidelined for sure.

First, thanks to all that have emailed, texted and called, wondering where I have been. It makes me feel good to know you care - and thank you to those that continue to check my blog for a new post.

But there won't be a new post for a while yet - and not very often even then.  I had back surgery on Nov. 27 after a painful trip to the ER in the ambulance (those things are not built for comfort, let me tell you). The surgery was successful and now the long, slow recovery.  I have my laptop on a wooden tv tray, tilted towards my lap, as I type this note. Not the most comfortable way to type - but it is working for a bit anyway.  And I can't sit in one position very long anyway/

Physical therapy, visits to the acupunturists, doctor visits, hospital bed and nice walker - and helpful family and friends - those are my companions for now - later I'll be back to share photos when I can get out and take more.

Have a very wonderful holiday - and thanks for checking in with me.

Rest and Get Well! That's the most important thing! We'll be waiting and thinking good thoughts for a speedy recovery....Happy Holidays! xx

Saying it again - so glad you are on the mend. Take good care!

Been thinking lots about you, hope your recovery is steady and complete - and speedy (we really do miss those pictures)!

Thanks for visiting my blog, JoAnn. I'm sorry to read about your surgery though. Sounds like you've got a good plan for recovery and a positive attitude. Your photos are gorgeous--I'll be back to see more.

Hi Joann,
Sorry to read that you went through recent back surgery. Hope you mend well, and fast. Have a very Merry Christmas, and blessings for you and your family in the coming New Year.

Not a fun time. I spent a few days in bed before Christmas w/ back pain, but did not have to go through anything like you have!
Please take good care!!!
