“Red for Christmas”

Description from Granny Nancy: I love red for Christmas. But I can sometimes add pearls or gold or highly faceted AB crystal. Also, there's the old standby green. I might try one of those before Christmas. By the way, my surgery yesterday was a success. Don't want to explain the gore here but several problems I'd been experiencing are identified and have treatment for them.

    Surgery? What surgery?

    I am pleased to hear whatever it was went well, that you will have better mobility and less pain.

    BTW, I love this pick and have fingers crossed for a POD!

    Hi Chicky, It was outpatient. I had a stone stuck in a bile duct and it was causing problems. They found I have gastritis, which was no surprise. Even though it was simple surgery and all with a tube down my throat, It really wiped me out. But glad it was minor stuff and easy to treat. Thanks for the hope for a POD for my pick.

    Your situation sounds incredibly painful! Glad it was correctable. Was ultra-sound used to blow it up? Presumably the gastritis will clear itself up now?
    Thanks for letting me know. Please take care of yourself xoxo

    Hope your throat is better. Tubes down the throat makes the throat sore. Glad your problem was solved.

  13. Granny Nancy
    Granny Nancy says:

    Yup Pam – the throat pain was gone in 2 days. It wasn’t too bad really. The gastritis diagnosis was no surprise. I just have to be careful about what I eat. Like – try to stick with breads, pasta, etc. with no gluten. I learned a long time ago to stay away from Mexican and to NEVER eat chocolate and anything with tomato sauce in the same meal. I’m on medication and eventually I’ll try “one” piece of pizza, which has always been a great love of mine. I prefer a think crust.

    dolllady aka Pam says:

    Ouch! I have been using mini Naan bread topped with shaved parmesan and 4 cheese Italian cheese to make pizza at home. If I have some sausage or salami I use some of that also.

    Nancy, yours is a gorgeous pick for the season! Anything made with these components can be shown off from now through Valentine’s Day. Also, I’m so sorry you had those problems but so glad the procedure went well! And hope you are on the mend. My husband and I had to change our diet drastically per Doc’s orders. No sugar! I know how tough it must be to find the right food. But You got this! :)
