I came home from the hospital two weeks ago today. The surgery seems to be a success. I'm still healing, but each day I feel stronger.

After my doctor did the surgery, he thought I might have to stay at least seven days, but I got to come home in four. Food is the worse thing for me. I can't stand the smell of food, so I don't eat. Yes, I've lost weight, and the big thing now is to keep it off.

I have been reading some. I had several things on my Kindle, but a friend brought Pioneer Christmas to me. It's nine novellas and several are written by authors I know and love. I'm down to the last one right now and I hope to finish it today.

There are two books I want to read by Sandra Robbins. One is the last book in her Smoky Mountain Dreams, Beyond These Hills. My husband read it and enjoyed it. I'm anxious to get started on it. The other book is Yuletide Jeopardy. I was surprised when Sandra sent me a picture of the dedication page. She dedicated it to me! I've been mentioned in pages of thanks, but never had a dedication page before. Sandra and I critique together.

If you go on Facebook, read my Thankful Days. My daughter and niece have been doing it. I realize how much I have to be thankful for this month and each day. I'm thankful for everyone who reads this blog. It means a lot to me.
