So now it's come to this...I'm celebrating being able to sit and get up from a chair without issuing blood-curdling screams. And how the neighbors appreciate it!! The surgery was done laparoscopically, but the surgeon encountered great resistance from the scar tissue so I'm really bruised and very sore, but am recuperating nicely. So rather than share my bruised, road map of a stomach (yes, they actually draw on it before they cut), I thought I'd share a few of the Naples, Florida photos tonight and more later in the week.
The new header photo is the beach at sunset the first night we were in Naples. I love how the ambient light makes this so peaceful looking.
We saw some really beautiful, cloud-filled skies.
A protected sea turtle nest...
