Slippers are a perfect way to use up a bunch of odds and ends of yarn (in the "fiber world," she who dies with the most yarn, wins. I am definitely in contention for that
"honor.") Any way, I like to keep slippers of various sizes in a basket at the back door so folks can slip them on in the winter when they come to visit. This all started when I brought back my mom's knitting stash and found a pattern for slippers she used to make on an index card (you all know that pattern--the one your grandma/aunt knit you for Christmas with the pom-pom on it and the "hole" in the middle of the toe where the yarn was drawn tight to form the slipper). I have made several pairs of those in different sizes (not everyone wears the same size I do) (some pairs have gone home with visitors--oh, my grandma used to make these, can I keep them?). I have a pattern for "pigheaded" ones, I think I'll work up some of those next...
As in pig head slippers??? Cool!!! Love pigs.

The lump was just a harmless cyst. The surgeon said she's seen hundreds of these and they are nothing to worry about, but it will be checked anyway, for it is a standard procedure.

Laurie, you did it and I did too! I knew there was just something I had to see here last night. Perhaps it is why they called very late, yes?

And thank you all for your hands and thoughts! I do love you people! I'm sorry I didn't feel like posting yet and I hope no one was worried. The Ogress probably knew I was tired today.

DA insisted upon going and wouldn't let them say no to her when they told her I was a little bit sick. She went in my room anyway! And I'm so nauseated, there she is hearing all this and saying, "Oh God! What's wrong? What's happening?!" She can't see this, so it was a mess! Gwen and a nurse were trying to get her away. She stayed. She is SO stubborn!

When everything calmed down, I did apologize to the nurses. They were very nice about it, and they said she was tough little lady and they did rather admire her for her stubbornness. Poor DA, she can't see, she hears this...I felt so very sorry for her. I kept yelling that I was fine in between the "dry heaves," as one nurse said I had but she was so scared.

DA and Gwen spoiled me all day. Gwen is spending the night and Carl visited briefly this afternoon but he didn't stay long because he knew I'm a little sore. I don't have much of a scar at all! I only have 3 tiny little stitches. I did show this to Carl, but don't get mad, I didn't show him my breast, just the top with the scar. He has to marry me before he gets to see the rest of it.

They gave me more painkillers, an anti-inflammatory medicine, and since the procedure was all paid for and had no extra expenses except for the shot, I paid for the shot of my money and Gwen brought us home.

I'm sore but very, very happy. Now this is behind me. Mamma and Papa were crazy with worry but I called Mamma as soon as I got home and fixed all that mess.

I learned something of this: The next time I need a little tiny surgery, I'll duct-tape DA to the piano, leave Gwen with her, and get Carl to take me.

With love,
~Cat
So glad you did okay with the surgery, getting sick from the anesthesia is normal. I am also happy that it was just a cyst and nothing bad like we thought it might be. Lots of hugs and take it easy for a couple days.

Thanks guys, Las Vegas was never on my bucket list, but we'll already be there anyway, may as well make the best of it. We have friends who go all the time, but all they do is gamble and they don't really pay much attention to anything else. We don't gamble, and we're not into shopping. I did notice the Bellagio has a big aquarium, so I may pack our masks, fins, and snorkels. Oh wait, they won't allow us to swim in it. Bummer. Oh well, it should be an experience!
Shrek says see as many shows as you can afford. He means like Leno, any singers, etc.

I know you don't like them, but you take them so you can move. Not being in pain is the best help to healing. I mean it, don't make me go all Ogre on you!!! Get some sleep.

Thanks PF and Shrek! Of course, Penn and Teller are on my list. Other possibilities are Leno, Blue Man Group, Wayne Newton of course, and Absinthe, the musical. I'm annoyed that I didn't book the flight plus hotel that included free show tickets, but we were still debating about the hotel. We have to stay in Utah for the graduation, so it wouldn't have worked out anyway.

Cat, I am glad it went well. Don't rush yourself - even if it was a small cyst, it is in a sensitive area and will hurt. I don't know what they gave you, but take it if you need to. Maybe by tomorrow you can just take some Tylenol or Advil.

I know you have to look after your aunt, but you have to look after you too.

I will. I'm trying to finish a speech I must do, and I will sleep.

I did my first "regular day" today, doing a load of laundry (I usually do three), the dishwasher and hand washes, got the mail, fed the furkids, cleaned the litter box, made dinner and made TB's lunch for tomorrow. But, mind you that was over the whole day with lots of rests in between tasks.

I am tired, but not any more sore than normal. So, a very good day indeed.

I understand, Laurie. I took one just a few minutes ago to help with sleep. It does do away with much of the discomfort, but I am feeling very odd again.

Your post made me feel so positive and everyone offering hands to me sent me away to this with a knowlege (spelling?) of love, kindness, and as you, this sharing.

I do love my DC and my precious, wonderful friends here. I wish so very much of the best of life to all of you.

Laurie, you are inspiring and precious. Thank you for being here!

And all of you from A to Z, I thank you also!

Love, Catina
