The Pre-Op party at my "joint"

Tonight,  my widow's group got together for my pre-op party at my house...
Really...any excuse for a party...pot luck..party at my "joint"..ha!!
So fun. Eleven people came with yummy food and laughs.
Flavored waters  shown here...Emily helped me out...
Although, I did notice that most wanted vino and not water.
Stephanie came to help with the cleaning and the kids...
But, Evan was the real hero!!  He helped so much.
Every one loved Evan.
I covered everything that looked messy ...with my quilts.. such the lazy one!!
Here is a  result of  my stress buying ...I love these fabrics so much that I doubt I will be ever able to use them.
I think it is now time for bed...16 year old Pumpkin is so tired from the party that no matter how loud I shouted, she just could not open those eyes for a picture!!!!

A big thanks for all the support and emails from you ...my dear friends.
36 hours and hopefully, the new knee will be installed.
I might just really be able to do this without my dear man....with a little help from my friends.
Ok, a lot of help from my friends.

Best of luck Diane. I had my right knee replaced 8 months ago and I am so very, very glad. I wish I had done it 10 years ago. My knee was p
ain free in a relatively short time and much more mobile. My best advice is to work with your PTs as much as you can and you'll be up and around in no time!

And that's exactly what friends are for!! to hang out and celebrate and help carry the loads that are too heavy. You are going to do great, I'm sure of it. And you are never without your man. He lives on in your heart and in your children.

So glad you enjoyed a pre-op party!! And clever you, covering any mess with a beautiful quilt! I can certainly get on board with that plan. Hope surgery went well and the recovery is good! Will continue to hold you in my prayers!
Blessings!
