I'm still a bit groggy from my surgery this past Friday, but I'm alive and on the path to recovery. I'm also happy to report my doctor's assistant wasn't a yellow Labrador puppy and my faith in the French health care system is renewed! (Even though a nurse almost put a wrist band with somebody else's name on my arm – a name one letter shy of my husband's ex-wife!!! Really, I hadn't signed up for the DIY lobotomy...)
At any rate, and jokes aside, my doctor – a new one who practices at a private hospital, or clinique – is awesome. And while I can manage with my French I'm really happy he speaks English. Hey, when you're discussing any kind treatment you don't want to miss a single word! Er, like lobotomy.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and putting the "situation" behind me. Life is too short to focus on things that are completely out of your control! And, as mentioned last week, I have so much to be happy about. With that said, and in honor of my pay it forward post, I've decided to add a signed copy of Across the Universe to my contest prize pool, thanks to having won it via Lois Moss! Which also means I have to finish reading it by Wednesday...
I hope everybody has the happiest of Mondays! And remember: when life gives you lemons, just add some vodka to the mix and throw a party. (Just make sure you're off the pain killers first...)
