I know I said I'd be gone for a few days, but I had a pretty good day at work and I feel better. It was a long day, but I learned a lot and I managed pretty well. I knew working would be good for me today.
More than that, I am so lucky and thankful to have such an amazing group of friends. Even the two with the babies dropped what they were doing, for me. Lana brought me over gatorade and food when I was imobile, Shosh forced me out of my apartment that night for a walk, and then Anna picked me up and took me home with her the next day to hang out, do yard work, and play with the baby. Her husband even took me for a spin and then through the car wash in his brand new convertible, which so reminded me of my Dad in the good times. And then there's my best guy Josh who always knows how to make me feel better, even if it's by phone. I have great friends.
Finally, thanks for YOUR kind words here and via email. I may have even received a video serenade from someone...not mentioning any names.
I feel better already and I have my friends to thank. All of you.
