Wisdom from Deor

The Anglo-Saxon poet Deor in his lament says, Þæs ofereode, þisses swa mæg! which means, more or less, "This too shall pass."

This pretty much encompasses my attitude toward my surgery and recovery. Things are going well, even if I don't feel a hundred percent at the moment.

Folded laundry yesterday. Got the Pathfinder (NAUMS chapter newsletter) out today. Bowels and bladder have returned to normal functioning. Had a nice nap before supper. Finished reading a good book. Can't drive yet, don't have much energy, and have to hold my belly when I cough, but so what. We'll get there.

In the meantime, I've gotten a couple of floral arrangements from folks. A church member called to see how I was doing yesterday. People are expressing support on Facebook. Deanne is putting up with me. Sassy is very happy to have me home more. God is good.
