From my hospital bed...

My two close friends Nook HD and the TV on the wall VERY early this morning after a "blood draw" and morning "meds."
I continue to heal and hear lots of terms like quads and hamstring and old and new scar tissue. Yesterday I'm quite sure my PTs tried to kill me but also I continue to make great healing progress!

From my hospital bed today...

Yes, they wake you early in the hospital! It's still dark outside!!  All for the good of recovery of this knee replacement.

From my hospital bed...

Happy first day of Fall! I took this photo this morning from my bed at the Rehabilitation center where I am recovering from knee replacement surgery last Friday.

The morning sun filtering through the blinds was so pretty on the pumpkin that Vivian had  brought by for me.

(I think it would look very pretty as a pumpkin pie too!)

There’s something about sunflowers that bring a smile.


I’ve been recovering from knee surgery for a month or so…just got rid of that pesky walker so a cane is my best friend right now.  I was cheered up when my friend Doff came by the other day and brought me these sunflowers

The crystal pitcher is a retirement gift from PacBell when I took early retirement several years ago.  I like to collect clear crystal and glass.  The little blue pot is  vintage Bauer.

I have a couple of reasons for loving sunflowers:

  • my home state of North Dakota is a huge sunflower grower so they remind me of my roots
  • my nephew Michael who passed away in a motorcycle accident had a connection to sunflowers
  • and, simply, they are just happy and cheerful looking!

Hope your day is as full of cheer as a sunflower!

If I were a flower.. I would be a sunflower.
To always follow the sun, Turn my back to darkness,
Stand proud, tall and straight even with my head full of seeds.
