(I posted earlier about yesterday's radiosurgery. See below)
I woke up today (Thursday) feeling much better! Still, Moshe worried about me staying home alone. I reassured him that I would not be alone all day. My friend Leah, from TriLcat, (whose blog I can't seem to add to my blogroll -- can anyone help with that??) would be coming over in the middle of the day, for several hours.
Neither of us realized my eldest daughter would also be home most of the day. I spent some nice time with her in the morning, when she finally woke up.
Then Leah arrived, with bagels and lox and ingredients for milkshakes! How amazing is that!!
As if that weren't enough, she loaded the dishwasher and kept me company while I tidied up a bit.
We talked, ate, laughed, and played games. FUN!
By the time she needed to go, I was ready to rest.
I waited for the bus with her, then crawled right into bed. I did not sleep, but I rested all afternoon.
When my youngest daughter came home, I spent some time with her, working on her Bat Mitzvah invitation. She was so tired from her tiyul shnati (two-day class trip) that she fell asleep in the middle.
Then, my son came home, and we also spent some nice time talking... until he ditched me to go play on the computer.
I spent the rest of the day watching a movie (Down with Love - funny chic flic, with a twist), writing, and chatting on the phone.
It is the end of the day, I have a mild headache, and I am tired. But I feel good.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
