My new hardware!

This is from today's x-rays, and the neurosurgeon likes what he sees. He also (with some effort, ouch!) took off the steristrips, so I can see the incision now. Not as long as it seemed from the mass of steristrips, so overall, no complaints! Another two weeks in the soft collar while PT rebuilds my neck muscles, then we'll evaluate when I go back to work. So longer off work than originally planned. Thanks heavens I have GREAT short term disability insurance!

A very lucky girl!

Our friends Randi and John drove out from Brooklyn for a visit today and brought me this gorgeous bunch of roses :)

Spring is close enough to here!

Brian got out the grill and cleaned it up ready to go. Unfortunately due to a scheduling miscommunication on my part, I didn't have time to try anything from the grill tonight :(

It's good to be crafty!

As part of healing from my surgery, I'm going to have to wear a soft neck brace for the next 3 weeks. They didn't have one that fit me properly, but were able to trim one down for me. Unfortunately, this meant it only had half the soft fabric covering, and had rough foam running on my skin. I also happened to have a soft, fuzzy remnant of flannel I'd picked up a couple of weeks ago. Ta-Da!

(I can't control the order it uploads the photos in, but hopefully this should show before and after.)
