Home again........

My son and I got up at 3:15 and got to the surgery center in Chicago in record time with very little traffic on the tollway.  The surgery only took about 15 minutes and we were back home again by 10.  I feel like a new person without the radioactive plaque in my eye, almost normal except for the unwashed hair for 5 days (and another 2 before I can remedy that).  What a relief that this part is over and the next trip for a check up is 2 weeks away.  I really felt like an invalid for 5 days with that bulky bandage around my head with the lead shield.  I will be able to uncover my eye tomorrow and be back to my regular glasses.  One of the drs. said the double vision should correct itself fairly quickly.  I hope he is right.
As you can see in the photo, one of my 4 dark leaf cacti has a bloom just opening and another bud.  One other plant has one bud and the other 2 have nothing yet.  My orange plant doesn't have buds yet either.  I hope some of them are actually blooming for Christmas.

Hi, Wanda. Glad to hear that you're feeling almost brand new. Hope all returns to normal very rapidly now.
The important thing is that you can see the turkey!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Wanda - I just caught up on your last two weeks. I'm sorry you can't visit your dad, and I'm glad the worst is behind you as far as your eye is concerned. I'll be praying for you both, and I wish you a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving, as much as it's possible. Take care, friend.

Sounds like you are on your way to recovery and being as normal as you can be. ;-) Your cactus looks great. I was looking for an orange one but haven't found one yet.
