I've got a screw loose

All four of these were in my foot!

I woke up early this morning to get ready for my second surgery. They took the pins out of my not-so-little-anymore foot.  This time I got there at 9:00 by permission of the surgeon and they brought me in at 11:30.  I woke up in recovery at 2:30 and was home by 5:00!  It was a much better experience than last month.

While I was waiting for Paige to pick me up, I had about five minutes to waste, so I cruised the Etsy Treasuries just to see if I was featured in any.  Lo and behold, I was not in 1 treasury, nor 2, nor 3.  No, my work was represented in no less than 4 treasuries!  And two of them were curated by people I didn't know!  Too cool.

Then, while I was waiting for my dinner to heat up (after having come home from the hospital) I decided to check e-mail and found a message titled "The fame just keeps piling up" from Mr Tim McCrieght himself which read:

" Hi Ashley, Joanna, Lora and Patrik, When you have a minute, check out this link at the online portion of Art Jewelry magazine. As you'll see, your smiles are now available around the world. I hope this finds each of you well and enjoying the closing days of summer. Tim"

A great beginning to the day and an equally auspicious ending. Only wish what transpired in between was just as notable.  Well, I guess it actually was notable. The beginning of the end of my ordeal. With a taste of fame to act as bookends!  Lovely.

Oh yes, so glad to have it (the actual medical) almost over. And happy to anticipate the end of pain. I'm hobbling on the outside of my foot tonight and in quite a bit of discomfort - but this too shall pass.
