Spring In My Step . . .

snow is melting,it was in the fifties yesterday
flowers popping up inside
not outdoors though
soon, very soon


 this ceramic piece is one of my mother's collectibles
from the ceramic arts studio in madison, wisconsin

bright red appeared this morning
so very pretty

it started with having tea with a friend here on thursday morning
an hour later everything changed
miss kidney stone appeared again
off to emergency, there from noon until eight
admitted to the hospital, surgery yesterday
home again last night
 and changing plans just a bit
my family was to be here today for dinner
my daughter stepped in and we are going to her home 
if you have never had a kidney stone, don't
and no, it is not like having a baby
if you have had one, chances are they will return
i will spare the ugly details, believe me they are ugly
 they are just plain awful
the flowers my daughter brought to me this morning
cheered me considerably
off we go to be happily treated by family 
it is a wonderful world
we need to believe it to be true
to make it so
be kind to one another
love, lynne

Musings from Kim K. said...

I'm so sorry that you suffer from kidney stones. It's horrible. My husband has them too. I often wish I could change places with him when his attacks happen. Take it easy. Wishing you a most beautiful and blessed Easter!

Pamela Gordon said...

Lynne, I'm so sorry you had another kidney stone and surgery. I've never had one but my hubby did a long time ago. He was so sick! I'm glad you have that behind you now. Your bouquet is just gorgeous. I love all the colours. I also like your vintage bunnies and think they are adorable. Enjoy your dinner and I wish you a blessed Easter. Hugs, Pam

Pondside said...

Oh dear, Lynne, how awful for you. I'm glad you're home, safe and sound and gazing at a lovely bouquet and precious Easter keepsakes. Happy Easter!

TexWisGirl said...

i'm so sorry about the kidney stone! and that you needed surgery to get rid of it!

the flowers and your easter display are beautiful, though.

keep smiling, dear one!

Jill said...

I am so sorry for your pain, Lynne! Your flowers are just beautiful as the sun washes over them. I hope the love of family washes over you today and heals you mind, spirit and soul.

Heather said...

Yikes... so sorry to hear you had a stone and you had to have surgery... but I am glad you are on the mend... beautiful photos... wishing you a wonderful Easter with your family! Cheers~

Bonnie said...

Dearest Lynne, I do hope you are feeling better this afternoon. I have a young friend who had two just prior to giving birth a few weeks ago. I have heard they make you miserable and wear you down. Isn't it wonderful to have a daughter.

Oh, this made me wish I had bought that mixed bouquet of flowers I saw at the grocery store today. Very nice!

Lynn said...

Your decorations are only made more lovely knowing your daughter brought the flowers. You know what I really, really love about being elders, Lynne, is the little things we take in stride and the big things, like your surgery yesterday, are fine too. Okay, dinner at daughters ~ instead of the bustle you are now the pampered guest. No worries. Sending wishes for peace, love and a blessed Easter Sunday.

Oh Lynne, I'm so sorry that nasty miss. kidney stone decided to crash your tea, and her after effects, your Easter weekend. the flowers are beautiful, and I hope that the joy of having loving family around, as well as those flowers, will bring speedy healing and a peacefu heart.
Praying for an Easter miracle for you...the banishment of miss. k.s. for life!!!

So sorry to hear about your ordeal and just at Easter time. I have heard they are not too pleasant and glad it's over for you.
Hopefully you can enjoy spring, now, and look forward to our summer and your garden!

GardenofDaisies said...

Oh, ouch! So sorry. Can't imagine how awful that must have been. My BIL had one. Glad your family was there to take care of you.

Rural Revival said...

Oh no! Well that is just not good at all. I am sorry to hear the kidney stone returned. : (
Our bodies don't always have good timing when they choose to tell us something isn't quite right, do they? I do hope you're on the mend and they're gone once and for all.
