... my Doc said I would know when it was time ... "All About Quality of Life", he said. I had my right hip replaced on August 16th ... it was time! Missed PPF check in #22 in prep of my 'Leave Of Absence' from my routine and just checking back in now and it's already PPF #25! Where did the time go? No painting for me ... did create the below thank YOU note for all those who participated in my recovery (thank YOU for your prayers, visits, treats, meals, cards and notes, and treasures!) Used a portion of the Doc's initial explanation of what might be with me back from January 14th and added a few of my own highlights and reproduced it as a photo (Used Strathmore Photo Mount Cards ... LOVE Strathmore). Won't be able to head right back to work, so I have no excuse to get some creating going on. Missed you all! Hope all is well with you and that you were spared some of (if not all) the perils brought on by Irene. Although we lost power for some time, our lives continue to be Sprinkled by Blessings :) no water or structure damage, etc.
