Change Of Plans...

Brynwood Needleworks - Cork With Gold Fleck and Lining Fabric

I intended to create these three Cork Crossbody Wallets yesterday. Today, (I thought) I had a procedure scheduled. I'd double checked the date and time, so I could go ahead and work on these the day before.

However, someone's signals got crossed (not mine), and I got a call when I didn't show up for the procedure. "It's okay. You can still come." So, I put aside my projects, jumped in my Explorer and drove right to my appointment. Handsome and Bella were across the state, so I drove myself. One good thing was that moving the date up helped me avoid fretting about the surgery for another day.

Three hours later, I left the doctor's office to head home. I filled an Rx for pain meds and antibiotics and was home a half hour later...sore, swollen and wanting to lie down. (This was a surgery to deal with a recurring problem I've had with my bottom lip for the past 12 years. This was my third, and hopefully last, surgery.) 

Funny story: The doctor had Pandora playing music during the surgery. Two consecutive songs had us laughing out loud. 1) Frank Sinatra singing "I've Got You Under My Skin, and 2) Nat King Cole singing "Smile". Honestly. I asked if they had a special mix selected just for surgeries like mine!

As I write this, my bottom lip looks like one of the characters from Bill Cosby's "Fat Albert" cartoon. I'm not going to sew today, but should be feeling better tomorrow. You know me. I'd rather be sewing than lying about any day, but it's hard to work the fabric through the machine while holding ice to my face. sigh.
Don't worry. I'll be fine. I hope you'll excuse me while I go lie down now (with my head elevated). I'll let you know how I'm doing tomorrow.

Healing Energy Dear for a speedy and complete recovery...and no more surgeries. I think every time either you or the doctor and his staff hear those songs it will bring a smile to the lips. Ice and rest is just what you should have today. Feel better...

I hope your pain meds work well and you will be up and sewing tomorrow.

Feel better Donna - The good news is that you will heal sooner (since you started sooner ;))!
