Guess What?

I had surgery on my ankle TODAY!

I went in for a second opinion on my ankle at noon and had surgery to put screws in my fractured ankle 2 hours later! Yep, that is right! A FULL ON FRACTURE that wasn't really correctly diagnosed by the last doctor. This doctor was so kind and understanding about the fact that my insurance was changing to a new company as of TOMORROW { AND not to mention the fact that I had been dealing with this since APRIL} that he put me in the operating room ASAP! Otherwise I would have had to come up with more money for the deductible and couldn't really afford to do that. So, basically it was NOW or NEVER!

Maybe that is why they call him DR. LOVE!! No, really, that IS his name! Dr. Michael LOVE! LOL!

I am in a lot of pain, but my awesome friend, Chas, is really helping me get through the fears and concerns I have right now! Sorry I didn't call and tell any of you (parents, sister, friends) in advance, but I didn't have time to!

Well, I am gonna get some sleep, I NEED IT! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the SheetLoad of Cards and Whimsie Doodles DEBUT Days!! These two companies that I am lucky enough to design for ROCK out the best sketches, the best digi's and the best creative inspiration! So, don't miss out!

Big Huge Hugs to you all, especially CHAS!!
