I am recovering nicely from the surgery, we had excellent care while there. The benefits of the paravertabral block include less pain post surgery- which means I have been comfortable. I was released today to go home with my family. Dr. De la Melena suggested we stay in Portland tonight so we are at my Brother Tom’s house. Spent a nice afternoon in their lovely garden, during this amazing summer preview day. The honey bees were swarming all over Lisa’s blooming rosemary bush. Joe is making a nice dinner as I write.
We will most likely travel back to Astoria tomorrow, and I will spend the next several days following the advise of the surgeon, “Rest now, or pay later.”
Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. I feel as if I have been completely surrounded by love through this whole process.

Have had you on my heart continually. Sending healing Light and love to you! Thanking the Lord for your family and many friends who are along side you. Life has called you to this post op chapter just as the spring flower, tree, grass and butterfly all emerge to new life and beauty. And as the warmth of the day calls out to the trees to reach their branches upward and spread their life giving greenery across the landscape in life’s renewal, so the spirit calls to you, “Rise and shine dear sister, though limbs be weary from this winter past. It is a new day and the sun has come to play!” Much love to you always. Julia
