Welcome to my first "normal" post since my sabbatical. I've caught up with half of you and have about half more to go before I'm all caught up with visiting you. It's amazing how much all of you have done in 3 months! So if you haven't heard from me yet, I'm on my way this week!
While I was "away", I had an emergency visit at my local hospital. Since I got my new "smile", I've had to really adjust to eating differently. Well, one night I was eating and swallowed a large piece of stew meat which promptly became lodged in my esophagus. Long story short, they took me from the emergency room directly to emergency surgery to remove it. I felt so bad because they had to call in the GI team at 11:30 at night. These pour souls (two nurses, the surgeon, and the anesthesiologist) all were called from their warm beds to take care of my emergency. They were so amazing and so wonderful at their jobs. Not once did they make me feel like I had inconvenienced them, even though I apologized to them 100 times for dragging them out in the cold so late. I wanted to say thanks and I made the following cards for them:
|For Nurse #1|
|For Nurse #2|
|For the Surgeon|
|For the Anesthesiologist|
Not only were these people disturbed late at night, I had to call my sister to come and get me after surgery because they would not allow me to drive home after being put under. So she had to come and get me at about 1:00 AM. So I made these for her:
An inside, I tucked this:
I really like this style of gift card holder and it fit perfectly inside the A2 size card.
What an ordeal, but these people literally saved my life. I now chew my food until it's mush before swallowing! LOL God, such changes. . .

I hope you are all happy, well, and warm. Will this damn winter ever end??? We had almost a 70 degree day yesterday and we have snow today! I could just spit!
