Saturday Snapshot November 2, 2013 Flowers for Recovery

I didn't get to reply last week that the rose was for no special occassion. My DH is like that and has given me flowers on many 'non-occassions' through our marriage. 

I was thinking I wouldn't post this morning but I awoke early since I spent a good part of the last two days sleeping.  

This week I spent a couple hours on Monday making plant creations 
with my daughter and the Woman's Club.

Heather snapped a photo of the two of us:

Needless to say my surgery this week was great concern for my family.
DH and Heather were more upset than I was. 
I had expected another fibrous cyst and not invasive ductal carcinoma 
so I wasn't happy with the diagnosis. 
Plus the mammogram reported a spot in the lymph nodes they were concerned about.
However, I was relying on the Grace of God to have the lymph nodes clear.
The surgery took all day Thursday (mostly waiting, not in OR) and the results were good -
the tumor removed and the lymph node clear!
Heather sent this for me on Friday:

She sure didn't have to send me flowers
 and I feel badly for the worry she felt. 
But these flowers are clearly for an occasion as we celebrate the clear report.

[Oops - forgot to change this sentence.] I didn't get to visit much last week as I was trying to complete work and line up things before the surgery. I hope to visit a bit today between napping..
