Let the healing begin...

I wrote this post on Sunday so that I'd just have to press "publish" after surgery. I felt scared that I might be jinxing myself by writing it ahead of time. Then, I realized that jinxes and luck have nothing to do with this... so here's the quick message:

"Made it. Let the healing begin."
And please don't hold me responsible for my hazy brain and inability to type. The Runner just told me to "be careful" what I type due too the pain meds!


  1. HOORAY!!! hope you can get back to your pups soon!

  2. Consider yourself forgiven ahead of time for any drug/pain-induced blunders. Although it might be kind of funny for us! ;)

  3. WHEW! Tons of AireZen and healing vibes coming your way, KB!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  4. Glad that is behind you and the hard stuff can begin. Take it easy.

  5. You are a sweetheart to arrange a way to let us all know the surgery is over and that one big hurdle (or one big multicolored hoop) is now behind you! Hurray and huzzah! I hope you will rest well tonight, and indeed, let the healing begin :)

  6. The first step on the road to recovery. Hope it is a smooth and easy trip back to riding your bike with Shyla.

  7. Glad you are up and taking nourishment. And definitely do not use any autocorrect while taking the pain meds. Can lead to some interesting words. Still thinking of you.

  8. Glad it's behind you! Vibes for a speedy recovery!

  9. Blessings and speedy recovery from us to you.
    Here's to chasing all your dreams and finding out they all came true.
    Happy Thoughts only.
    Oh and Kiss the Duo for us too.

  11. So glad to hear this is all behind you now. Sending prayers for a quick recovery but I think you have some pretty good caregivers right there with you.

    Blogging might be the least of your worries when you get home. Just relax and enjoy those dogs.

  13. Wonderful, thankful, and grateful that all is well, let those meds do their work, keep pain to the lowest, and enjoy all TLC from the Duo and Runner. Hugs and much love, Jean.

  31. Hi Y'all!

    You have been constantly in my Humans thoughts these last couple of days. Our Internet connection has been spotty here at the shore, so know that you will continue to be in our prayers even if we are unable to connect.
