About gDonna
The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

So glad to hear you are home and well.   Sorry about your roof, but at least roofs are things that can be repaired.
Try to enjoy your down time though I’m guessing you’ll be itching to move furniture before you are allowed to ????

So happy to hear you are home and doing well.  I'm glad that the roof damage wasn't to extensive.  Continue to rest please.  We miss you, but your health comes first.  Ms. Sandie

good evening and I’m glad you are on the way to recovery.  It’s wonderful to have family members who are so helpful and do what needs done, isn’t it?  

I want to thank you for giving me so much hope.  I’ve recently found out I have a cardiac issue and so far, it seems a minor one as far as hearts go.  Knowing that you have been through so much with your heart and you’re still optimistic and living a happy, productive life is so encouraging to me.  
For now, I’m following the doctors treatment plan to the t and have more tests to come.  
so thank you for a beautiful blog and YouTube channel and for the encouragement you’ve given me.

Wonderful to hear from you and to learn the surgery was successful.  Bet you didn't tell them what great shape you were in from all the furniture moving and floor finishing :).  Heard about the storms; grateful your damage wasn't worse.  Lot of hugs being sent down south for you and your family Donna.

I am new to your posting via Jenny of Elefantz and am enjoying your writing very much.

I am glad you are doing well and will be able to use the "down" time to do needle work.

Glad the roof damage was not extensive and no one was hurt.

Wonderful news that your surgery is over and you are on the road to recovery.  Take care and read, sew, and knit------nice relaxing things to keep you entertained and not exert yourself.

GDonna,

So glad to know that all went well and that you are home! It was a wonderful surprise to get a post directly from you! Continue to rest and not overdo. I'm thankful that the storms didn't do more damage than they did and that y"all are all right. 

Blessings,

It was a surprise to see you post, but I'm glad to see it.  I'm thankful your surgery went so well.  I hope you are up and going again, soon.

What a disappointment, getting holes in a new roof!  I'm glad your roofer was so quick to respond and that your family was able to remove the limb.  We had a tornado here last week (Florida Panhandle), just a few miles from my house, but it was only a level 0 or 1, and the damage, luckily, was not too bad and no one was hurt.  We continue to have violent thunderstorms nearly every day though.  I hope your home, yard, and of course, you and Charles (and the pets!) are safe and unharmed as these storms roll through.

Oh, what a joy to hear this. I will continue to pray for your recovery.  Sorry you had to deal with the roof mishap, but how nice family came in to help and it's being taken care of.  LOL on the sponge baths as I was reading... knowing that would be easy for you knowing how prepared you are!  Rest and know we all are delighted to hear you are doing well.

Thank you for an update on your surgery.  I was wondering how it went and so glad to read that you are recuperating at home.  I chuckled at how life has prepared you for almost anything (the washstand). 

I read about the weather the southeast is experiencing.  I am sorry that you had rough winds and got roof damage.  Hopefully insurance covers it.

Take care!

So happy you are back home! We've been lucky here and have had some thunderstorms but no damage so far. I picked up a weather radio for alerts.

Rest up while you have the excuse :)

Hello Grandma Donna, I'm glad to hear your surgery went well and I am holding you in my prayers for a continued recovery. What a pain about the tree and the new roof! I'm glad you had family to help and I hope it can get properly fixed up soon and that it's not too expensive. Sending love and healing prayers across the oceans from Australia. xx

Wishing you a peaceful recovery now that you are home.  I had to laugh at Lady L's comment about you "itching to move furniture soon". I think she's right.  ;-)  Fight that urge and enjoy your quiet time. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers~

Delighted to read your post operative post here, GD! Sending you many warm greetings across the seas from the south of New Zealand and wishing you a calm, lovely healing time. 
I think there’s nothing as nice as your own bed and your own familiar surroundings. I hope your resting time will turn out to be a treasure for you.

Hello again!  I was thinking about you today.  I hope the heat wave down there abates soon, and that you have air conditioning!  I am not a hot weather person at all.  It has been raining a lot here, which we needed, but it's also been really, really muggy.  :(

I hope that you are taking it easy, and that your body is healing well.


Take care!

Donna, it is such good news to hear that you are recovering well from your surgery and from the storms.  I'm certain that it was scary during the storm and having the tree fall on the house.  I've been through many Midwestern storms and they can be frightening.  

Praying for continued recovery and the blessing of time to do some quiet work.  Good bless you.
