For supper we had meatloaf, fried eggplant, and baked potatoes. James had never had eggplant before. He liked it! That made me smile.

I saw my surgeon yesterday for my six week check-up (going by the second surgery). He said things look really good and was pleased that my pain level is much better than before the surgeries.

The smile? When I was ready to leave I said "well I really want to thank you for everything" (thinking that as with most specialists this would be our last visit unless I needed another referral down the road). He said, "you are welcome, but don't say goodbye just yet. We are together till the end....I want to see you at 3 months, 6 months, a year, 3 years (etc) just to keep an eye on things".

Oh, did I tell you that besides having a great bedside manner he is good on the eyes? (Don't worry, hubby is even better looking!)

Driving home from the airport yesterday, I took the back way which is a little more scenic, as I travelled closer to home I noticed a graffitied sign on a bend, as I got closer I could see what the graffiti was.
It was a smiley face and the word "SMILE", and less than a second later, guess what, I was. Simple, but effective.

We have a grafittied sign in our neck of the woods that always makes me smile: it's a deer crossing with a deer leaping thru the air and someone painted a very neatly placed red nose........been there for years.......guess the homeowners' associations have a sense of humor, too

haha.......
sounds like you have a great doctor, Laurie, all the way around.......I would rather be in the hands of an overcautious doctor than not and of course if they are easy on the eyes so much the better Glad you're feeling better!!!

if he's a picky eater then eggplant is definitely a smiling achievement for any cook..........if you've gotten him that far next time grill it for him..........my hubby loves it that way!! As they say "Kiss the cook"
