Continued Healing

Yesterday was my birthday!  It was also my first day back to the office since my surgery.  It was a great day that took a lot of energy and by the time it was over I was exhausted!

The husband surprised me in the morning with this awesome present.

Hello pretty ring.
I love it!

Then on the way to the office I realized that the birthday present I ordered for myself had arrived.

Fun times.
It was nice to be out of the house for the day.  The office had gotten me a card and I had a few surprise presents in my office...a great way to be welcomed back in my opinion.  I worked until 1:00 pm, I am still working limited hours the rest of this week, and then went home and rested.

The husband got home from work with these gorgeous flowers.  Sweet husband.

And cooked a nice healthy dinner...and then I went directly to sleep.  I was worn out...but it was a great birthday indeed. 

Originally I was torn about my birthday being my first day back to work and so close after surgery...I started to want to have a pity party about it...but it turned out to be great.  As I said yesterday I am now viewing the ER trip and surgery as a blessing.  I was very content to celebrate my birthday and healing milestone with my coworkers and then with a relaxing evening at home.  I feel very accomplished and I think this is the start of a great year for me.

Have a lovely Thursday everyone!
